  • "... following my “discovery” of a local supplier of the most delicious honey I’ve ever tasted during the week, I reached heights of ecstasy yesterday when I sampled chestnut honey, because I adore chestnuts, so this marvel combined two flavors which turn me on. It was like coming home!"

  • "It’s a real test of character watching CD Tenerife, you can’t relax for a moment, this 1-0 home win over Alcorcon was in doubt right until a shot over the Tenerife bar by the visitors in the third minute of injury time. Tenerife started so well and for the opening 25 minutes they looked to have found some style and rhythm but the old problems reared up again and it became a struggle."

  • "Last week members of ERA (European Ramblers’ Association) arrived on Tenerife to be shown some of the wonderful walking opportunities the island has to offer. The government took the opportunity to promote the new long distance GR 131 route which will traverse much of the island when completed. The idea is that they promote Tenerife as a walking destination to their three million members."

  • "A bit different from recent weeks, but not much. A sunny start to the week everywhere and a mix of sun, cloud and rain during the second part of the week combined with some breezy weather over the weekend."

  • "The brochure had promised two weeks in Tenerife relaxing around the pool, sipping cocktails, while soaking up the famous Canarian sunshine.

    “You won’t like it, it’s not your type of place”, I was advised by friends, aware of my love of the outdoors.

    In a way they were right. I soon became bored with sitting around a pool, which is why after a few days, I found myself struggling up the flank of Spain’s highest mountain."

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.
