We just returned from 1 week in the Canary Islands. We stayed on Tenerife. Josey did some research before we left, so here is some history and our wish list compliments of Josey.

We are going to Tenerife. I am going with my mommy, brother, and Dado. We get to go because my aunt Julie gave us a week in her time share.

Tererife, a Spanish island, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Africa.

Tenerife was born from volcanic eruption 12 million years ago. You can see the volcano from most parts of the island. The crater is up to seventeen kilometers wide in some points. Mt.Teide is the highest point on the island and in all of Spain. It is 12,193 feet above sea level. It is bigger than a mountain that you can ski on. Some beaches are man made with sand imported form the Sahara desert, and some are black sand beaches. It is warm year round.

When I am on vacation, I want to go:

  • To Aqua Park
  • To Mt. Teide Volcano National Park
  • To the Pyramids of Guimar
  • Whale and dolphin watching
  • To Loro Parque
  • To Masca, the pirate hideaway

Hi, it’s Gayle again. We flew from Barcelona to Tenerife to save lots of money. As a result, we had a 3.5 hour drive each way to Barcelona, and we spent an afternoon and evening exploring the old downtown part of Barcelona, too.

We had lunch at Casa Joan, in honor of our friend Joan in Santa Cruz. After lunch, we wandered around shopping and seeing the sights. It was a relaxing afternoon.

Details to follow, compliments of the kids!

Love to all!!
