#1 tips from Madeira – your feet


When you are invited to somebody’s home while in Madeira, don’t take your shoes off the moment you get in the house. We know it is a gesture of respect in oriental countries and a question of hygiene in northern countries but we don’t do that at all.

Unless you have accidentally stepped over something really sh…., don’t take your shoes off.  It will not be offensive but very awkward and people don’t feel at ease with that situation at all.
