That is a mystery. Apparently the sun never shines on this island, looks like it comes close but never quite makes it. Not much beach time.

I've been to Madeira several times and the quote about the sun never shining on it is bollocks. Unless the sun I saw was disguised as very bright and shiny thing with heat coming off of it....it's gave me a great tan considering it wasn't there.

Wow Marshy, you've traveled the world, but apparently you haven't been to Senseofhumoria.

No, this isn't right. Jules Verne is believed to took inspiration from Azores, one other group of portuguese Islands

Hey Richenbacher, I have a great sense of homour (English spelling...which is correct I think you'll find), but maybe Irony has passed you by?



Humour.....my smugness came back, bit me on the ass, kicked me in the nuts and slept with my wife.

FAIL
