We recently went on a short and very well deserved break to Tenerife. Although we’d just gone to relax, we still couldn’t resist doing a few touristy things.
The must see tourist attraction is Mount Teide, so we went on a day trip to climb (okay, we took the cable car) the volcano. The landscape was amazing and although it was a lovely clear and warm day, it was absolutely freezing at the top.
We also spent a day scuba diving. Jan had always wanted to give it a try, so persuaded me to come along, too. I hated it, Jan loved it. Although it really wasn’t my thing, I can still appreciate why people enjoy it, as the views down there were pretty amazing.
Tenerife is apparently one of the best places in the world to go whale watching. There were loads of mass tourist trips available, but we managed to book a small more private trip on a catamaran. There were only 8 of us on board and it was absolutely amazing, especially when we actually got to see loads of whales and even a little whale family.
Other than that we spent our time relaxing and soaking up the sunshine. There was a lovely little bar area in the hotel were we spent a few far too many evenings relaxing and sampling the delicious local beer.
Have you recently been on holiday? Have you maybe even been to Tenerife? Is there anywhere you can recommend as our next holiday destination?
