  • "It was another beautiful balmy night and the sky was clear save for a couple of puffy white clouds on the cumbre and around the base of Mount Teide. The only other objects in the sky were a few paragliders drifting down from Tigaiga. The views they were experiencing from the heavens must have been indescribable."

  • "The majority of these Puerto supporters tell us they return to the same accommodation, same months, year after year, but never hire a car to explore where the bus can´t take them. If they did they might find there is a lot more to the island than their preconceived notions. They would realise the traditional Tenerife they enthuse over, starts 5 minutes outside of many southern resorts, often within walking distance. What these so called ‘experts’ don’t seem to realise is that it is easier to promote Tenerife for what it is, something for everyone, rather than subject visitors to their personal prejudices. "

Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
