TSD Walking in Madeira 18th Feb 2012

Hi is anyone out there going on this trip. It would be good to talk to someone before meeting up.

 Andrea

if you have any questions, I can try to help!

 

Hi Andrea, I'm going. My first trip to Madeira.... and with Exodus (:

Amanda

It was my first ever Exodus trip too, loved it and have been on many more with Exodus since! My main tip is to be prepared for all kinds of weather, from shorts and sunglasses to woolly hat and warm gloves.

Really appreciate the tip ........ thanks Di

 Any other tips?

Hmm I can't think of many tips as everything was very well organised and no great surprises. If you have dodgy knees at all you may want to take walking poles - about half our group did although I didn't. I'm a recent convert to them for steep ascents and especially descents. When I went in December/January we had one day of rain which got pretty cold and wet,  so make sure you have good waterproofs just in case. Make sure your rucksack has a waterproof liner too.

Hi both. Thanks for the tips Di.

hi Amanda, its my first time to Madeira, 4th exodus trip...as always apprehensive but always have a good time.

Not long now and I am looking forward to the adventure!  I've been told by several people it is a wonderful island
