Travel Blogs from Arona

My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... group was on Teide, so we really needed to bring warm things in order to survive in the cold mountains. We got dinner in this quaint restaurant (which was in no way big enough for all of us, but I appreciated it), and then we took the windy, terrifying uphill trip to an area near the observatory we had visited earlier in the trip. We got to take some AMAZING photos of La Orotava from the top, and the "sea of clouds" looked stunning in the night sky. In addition, the night sky has ...

... the entire conversation was in English, and she asked Laura for permission to leave that day. It was her birthday, and her husband had been sleeping in the hospital since the day she arrived (about two weeks--talk about a devoted husband), so she wanted to be able to experience the island and celebrate her day with him.

The journey tends to zigzag to ...

... trip, and since it's been awhile since any of us have had semi-American food, we all dug in.

The next morning, we went on a hike in a northern part of the island called Teno--a mountainous region. Since we were at such a high elevation, the vegetation was very similar to that of deserts--all kinds of cactus and weird flowers/shrubs that only grow in places where water is in short supply. The views from the trail were totally amazing; we were right on the edge of the ...
