Pizza And Peter  Pan

Los Cristianos is the sort of place where you can get a full English breakfast or a Subway as readily as you can in London. There's nothing wrong with that but I'm quite glad that there's big swathes of this island which aren't really like that at all.

Exceptional Luck On Peter  Pan

As we cast off I remembered that I'd been rather spoilt on my first trip out and expected that this one would probably be rather less eventful. I really couldn't have been more wrong.

A Perfect First  Expedition

It was a perfect day to hit the water; a bit of wispy cloud sitting near the horizon, just outlining the bright blue sky above us. It was breathing a gentle force 2, enough to cool us off under the hot sun but not nearly enough to send hats flying into the Atlantic.

Holiday Madness

Tastes of Tenerife

Ask anyone and they’ll say that local food is one of the great things about travelling. Whether it’s familiar western stuff, recognisable but altogether different African or South American food or altogether new and exciting Asian, it’s a global language that everyone looks to learn more of.

Changing Season of Tenerife

It’s easy to think of Tenerife of this a year round tourist trap sitting at a cosy 25-30 degrees for people looking to get tans and ride jet skis.
