  • "If you are on holiday in Tenerife tonight, chances are your hotel will lay on a New Year’s party but if you are a free agent, a good place to be is the plaza in front of the church in Los Cristianos. There’s always fireworks, dancing and lots of fun to be had there. If you happen to spy a madwoman, with bulging grape-stuffed cheeks, wearing a red bra and yellow knickers, dragging a flaming Christmas tree and shouting Hagmane, that will be me. I need all the luck I can get."

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.
