    Buying a flat in Madeira – story & process

    Purchase of flat T2 in Funchal In this article, I would like to describe in detail everything about buying an apartment in Madeira – information and various tips about real estate agencies, prices, the rest of the purchase process after arriving in the Czech Republic and in the end I will briefly summarize the whole process.

    Madeira Island – 02/2020

    Madeira – buying a flat I fell in love with Madeira during my first visit. I have never been tempted to return to the same place. But with Madeira it changed. Madeira is very addictive and for me a strong addiction started during the first visit. So big that we decided to buy an apartment in Madeira. Now, in February, it was not yet a good timing to buy a flat, and the purpose of the visit was just to visit Funchal to make sure we really wanted to buy an apartment there and chat with real estate agents and see some of the apartments. But as it is usually…

    Jordan

    Jordan without car rental I have been thinking about visiting Jordan for some time already and we thought with my friend that we could take another shorter holiday in autumn. So we have decided to visit Jordan. We booked the tickets about 2 months before the trip, the first day after my return from holiday in Slovenia – ideal timing, good thing that I had again something to look forward to. There is a direct flight with Ryanair from Prague at decent prices, the flight is every Tuesday and Saturday, so we decided to go from Tuesday to Saturday. Ideal would be at least one week but as the end…

I will not describe in detail the individual places, you can find such information on the internet, I will focus mainly on practical advice, tips and our experiences and useful links, so that you do not have to find them all.

    Slovenia

    Slovenia with a child Last year, I accidentally came across a travel blog with an travelogue about Slovenia and when I saw the beautiful photos, the next destination was clear.

    Madeira – 06/2018

    Madeira by bus I have decided to go to Madeira with my sister in mid-June as this is one of the least rainy months and also we were hoping it might be also a good weather for occasional bathing in the ocean. It was our first journey on our own without travel agency, and since neither of us have a driving license, we decided to travel by bus (well, to be honest, even if I had it, on narrow roads in Madeira I would be afraid of driving anyway). If you are also going to travel on Madeira by bus, you may appreciate some useful advice and tips. At the…
