Hello and happy February, my dear readers! Once upon a time... or actually in April 2016 I and the husband travelled to Tenerife - the largest of the seven Canary Islands. In this strongly zoological blog post I wrote about their Loro Parque and here I told you about fascinating Mount Teide. But now that we have pretty much spontaneously booked our next travel destinations next to the wonderful turquoise blue Adriatic Sea I really feel like sharing our nostalgic and dreamy Tenerife photo diary with you. Therefore I have compiled three groups of photos: in the first bunch snaps from our hotel in Costa Adeje, secondly quite a few lovely moments mostly captured during our endless walks, and thirdly, of course, a colourful and delicious selection of what we ate!
Anyway, as I already mentioned we walked quite a lot - according to my simple pedometer our result was about 75 kilometres/101612 steps/2506 calories. But we're already ambitiously planning to outdo it during our exciting Balkans trip in May. So, here come some of the cool places we visited in the process of our adventures on the colourful streets of Tenerife: Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos, Siam Mall (link) and Garden Center Playa Fañabé (link). What we unfortunately missed this time was the 2.2 km Camino de la Virgen hiking trail we noticed just before leaving. But no worries, the husband said we're going to discover this trail the next time we're visiting Tenerife.
And finally our food stories. We had breakfast at our hotel's El Jable buffet restaurant and for dinner we had three different options inside the hotel: El Jable (buffet) restaurant (collage 1), La Tosca à la carte restaurant (collage 2) and Sakura Teppanyaki Asian restaurant (collage 3). Sakura Teppanyaki served the coolest six course dinner where all six dishes were made to order on the show cooking griddles. We had miso and tofu soup, selection of sushi, salmon and stir-fried vegetables with soy sauce, furutsu sorbet, beef roll with mushrooms and egg-fried rice and ice cream flambé and we both absolutely loved the experience!
We also visited Burger King for the first time and had our first Whoppers there. Our verdict - we would eat them again! And another local restaurant we put to the test was Torito Grill (link) which we also really enjoyed. Their service was flawless and the husband loved those icy complimentary drinks!
So I hope you enjoyed today's enormous photo diary and my observations and thoughts. I'm curious - do you guys travel? If yes then what's your next destination and which one was your last destination? Let me know your thoughts and see you in the next post which will probably be slightly snowy for a change!
