Porto Santo by bike

After our 4 days at sea we have just had a binge of exercise : around Porto Santo on the Bromptons. Tom hired a bike and we set off on a loop of the island taking in a lot of steep ups and downs around this volcanic lansacape. We had a swim in the lovely clear blue warm water and  We walked up to the highest point too, and found some particularly nice bars to quench our thirst in.  It feels like we have really made some distance getting here. The landscape is so un – european looking. the volcanic rock and arridness reminds us of Iceland or Jan Mayen, or the dry dusty hills remind us of Morrocco. The people are all very friendly and all well. Heading on to Madeira next…
