It’s been a while since I updated you guys about anything. You know how it goes. Working a bit more than usual, not a lot to share or talk about. But I do, sometimes have a life, and I do like to go on adventures.
As you probably guessed by the title, the island of Madeira was my latest adventure.
I wanted to edit and post process all the photos before I could share with you where to go, where to eat, what to explore, how to get around, but since I arrived in Lisbon, I had no time to focus on the photos. I also don’t want to wait too long so I am taking a few hours to inspire you guys to travel to Madeira.
Over the years i been wasting money trying to find the best gear to make my life more practical when i am traveling. All the way from backpacks, passing through cutlery and finishing up in small card reader/adapters.
On my last trip to Porto Covo, i realized that it is possible to carry very minimal gear and still be able to achieve great results. For this small list i will not include Cameras, Drone and my travel Tripod. I am focusing on the smaller gadgets and it should be no surprise by now that i am carrying at least the Fuji X100T every time i go somewhere new.
I have been waiting to get a "standard" zoom lens with a bigger aperture for a while. The Canon version is too expensive for me, on the website I was looking it is currently 2000€ and the Sigma is "only" 1300€. With that said I was able to pay 600€ for this lens after a few discounts and selling the Canon 24-105mm. Being able to get it for less than half the price was also one of the main reasons I bought it.
Continuing traveling in Portugal, last Monday, it was time to get to Cabo Espichel. It wasn't an easy and relaxing trip but it was fun in the end. I learned a few things along the way about camping alone.
