Man dies in San Eugenio car accident

A man died around midday today after a traffic accident near the Quiron Hospital (formerly the USP) in San Eugenio. Eyewitnesses say that the car started swerving when it was travelling between the San Eugenio commercial centre and the Playa de las Américas bus station, ricocheted off several trees, and finally crashed into a stone [...]

Callao Learning Centre British school in Tenerife

I occasionally get asked for information about schools in Tenerife, and perhaps the most commonly asked question is whether there are British schools here. I’m happy, therefore, to pass on the details of the Callao Learning Centre, a newly founded British School that works with international pupils who wish to study in a British system [...]

The Floral and Sand Carpets of La Orotava, Tenerife

La Orotava smells different. This isn’t the wild fennel and rosemary of Arona, it’s heather and roses, coffee and cakes. It’s 9am and though my stomach is rumbling and I am coffee-less, I want to head straight for the town hall. On this one day the building becomes a roosting place for amateur photographers. It’s […]

What this Agnostic learned from Corpus Christi in South Tenerife

My senses are completely overpowered by the mix of perfumes as I step outside the church in Arona. Incense is familiar. In the cooling evening air of Tenerife’s foothills it mixes with woody rosemary and the sharp, musky scent of wild fennel. It’s a potent combination and it attacks my eyes and nose. The altar […]

Guachinches to be regulated

Guachinches are small taverns, for want a better description, which are attached to or part of the main house of vineyards and which sell whatever homemade meals are being cooked that day, along with wine from the tavern’s own vineyard. By definition, given home produced food and wine, they are seasonal, and since the overheads [...]

Annual El Médano triathlon 16 June

It’s for hardcore athletes all right, but it’s also a great spectacle for the less energetic! The annual El Médano triathlon takes place on 16 June from 9am, with several hundred taking part and, no doubt, just as many if not more lining the routes to watch the 1.5 km swim, followed by a 40 [...]

Fun musical concert in Adeje for all the family

There’s an unusual and entertaining music event in Adeje on Friday 28 June – an “educational concert”. Now I know that “educational” anything often puts people off, but I’ve seen one of these concerts before and they are just brilliant, not only as an introduction to each instrument for those at the beginning of their [...]

World Environment Day in Tenerife

Island living means you’re never far away from the ocean, especially on an island of something less than 800 sq miles. From the peak of Spain’s highest mountain you see the Atlantic and some of the other islands of the Canarian archipelago. It’s a constant presence. I’ve lived in a couple of places where the […]

The Beatles on Tenerife

It was not until 15th October 1963 that the Daily Mirror introduced us to the word Beatlemania. Accordingly there was no Beatlemania in evidence when three of the boys, Paul, George and Ringo, holidayed in Puerto de la Cruz between 28th April and 9th May of that same year.

Every Day Should be Environment Day

Today is World Environment Day. To my mind every day should be, respecting our environment and leaving it in tact for future generations isn’t something to do today, forget about tomorrow, and do a bit more next week. It’s a way of life. That said, of course, I’m being both picky and prickly there. We […]

Historical reenactment “gesta del 25 Julio 1797″

25 July, 1797. Mean anything? Horatio Nelson … mean anything now? We grow up with the idea of Nelson as a paradigmatic symbol of British greatness, and particularly of utter British naval supremacy, so much so that we perhaps stop questioning the image of the one-armed admiral. Of course, here in Tenerife, it is a [...]
