the love of my life!
Tenerife has got a whole relaxed, surfish, careless air about it. Everyday is a holiday, even if you work, and even if you start your job at halv seven in the morning. Everyday is a party, you just have to find it.
It´s sunny, loads of gorgeus surfers (not so gorgeus waves though), and even the days when you´re feeling sick, it´s pouring down with rain and you just saw your big crush kiss another girl, it´s still.... not that bad.... Because you know that there´s a new adventure waiting around the corner, and things will be bright again. its a little bit too personal... it involves a certain italian guy, on a certain sofa, in this certain apartament, in a resedencial called san rafael (las tortugas). he said some stuff too me that I had been wanting to hear for a looong time, and... I have sooo many great memories from tenerife, but that night was really special. and its not so much about tenerife, rather about him, about him and me, but hes a really big memory that I have from tenerife, since hes been there all the time that Ive been there, with all the shared friends, parties and... experiences... so Id still say its my fondest memory of tenerife. Hes my fondest memory of tenerife.
Loro Parque and scuba diving
When you get to Tenerife you must go to Loro Parque. It is just a great way to spend a day and it is one of the nicest parks I have ever been to.
Visit the Thai pavilion, it is the largest traditional Thai construction ever built outside Thailand. Scuba diving with the stingrays was a blast.
If you're anything like me, the first thing you look for in a good beach is a shower! Well Tenerife is definitely high on my list for places that provide this simple but in my opinion 'necessary' facility!
Every beach in Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos seems to have them - and they work!
Hiking on Tenerife
With so many beautiful landscapes, walks are an appropriate thing to do on Tenerife. Many paths exist all around the island. Some are quite hard, remember that the sun is quite heavy there :-) One of the most popular starts in Masca and gets down to the sea. People are brought by bus to Masca and start the walk there for +/- 2h30 until they reach the coast. Then they can have a swim in the sea and rest on the beach before the boat comes to pick them up. I’ve never done this walk, but having been to Masca, I know it must be so lovely !
I also noticed a lot of walks starting in the area of the Pico del Ingles and going in the Anaga mountain or the forests of las Mercedes.
Sunset on Tenerife
Watching the sun go down over the sea. There are some really stunning sunsets on Tenerife but I never seem to be in the right place at the right time to take a decent photo.
(Sorry about the picture being a little bit blurred, too many Tequillas.)
