> Madeira


A week on the island of Madeira, Portugal -- located off the coast of Africa, near Casablanca, and 850 km from the coast of Portugal. It's 56 km long and 21 km across at its widest point, but it takes hours to travel the serpentine roads from village to village because of the steep and rugged topography. Madeira is really the top of an undersea volcano, last active 6,000 years ago.
