Island Hopping from Tenerife to Cape Verde

Before I moved to the Canary Islands I mistakenly assumed that islands within an archipelago would bear a major resemblance to each other. I could not have been more wrong. Experience has taught me that time and weather can mould islands within a short distance of each other in very different ways. So how different would one entire archipelago could be from another?

Island Hopping from Tenerife to Cape Verde
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.
