Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are under the Spanish rule. The Islands are very close to west Morocco. The Canaries are volcanic islands and have 7 main islands. I’ll rank them from largest to smallest. The islands are Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.


Tim and I visited 2 of the 7 Canary Islands. We stayed at the Gran Canaria to celebrate Tim’s Dad’s 70th Birthday and afterwards, we travelled to Tenerife.


Things that I have noticed about the islands are that it is a holiday destinations for Europeans and especially the Brits. So, you’ll find British food served everywhere. The canary food is different from mainland Spanish food and their spices and sauces are unique. They’ve got something called Cactus Sauce/ Jam. The fruits and vegetables are so delicious because they are grown locally and the islands are volcanic soil. Canary Islands are so cheap compared to mainland Spain so you won’t be spending much and the islands offer amazing holiday packages.


I think Gran Canaria is much more beautiful than Tenerife. Yes, they may have the same nature like any Canary Islands but they are so different. Gran Canaria is an amazing place to visit to relax and have a great time sunbathing on the beach. They have amazing restaurants to try and is more of a chilled island. Tenerife on the other hand is more of an activity place and a party island and just filled with tourists.


I will write about both trips on separate blogs. Lucy, my sister-in-law has been to 4 Canary Islands and she said the Gran Canarias is the best one so far and that the vibe of the islands are different from each other.

What have I blogged about in August?


So here is what happened during the month of August. Lasik Surgery went well, THANK GOD. We travelled to Bangkok and DAMN that place is amazing for shopping. I bought a lot of clothes and I fell in love with a store called Sugar and Cream that sells vintage outfits. ME GUSTA. We also stayed at Telal Resort for the weekend which is in the middle of the desert. We personally love it, it was voted as one of the best luxury resorts in the CONTINENT. So, we’ve got plans for September and hopefully I will get back to blogging ASAP since I have Spain and Thailand to blog about.
