The First Time I Rode The Ocean  Waves

Waves crashing could be heard from a distance as we carried our surfboards across the sandy beach of El Medano. We stopped midway along the beach where the white foam of waves could be seen forming from the horizon

The Atlantic Spotted  Dolphins

Three times I’ve seen Spotted dolphins in the last two weeks. In the stretch of water between La Gomera and Tenerife there is a huge group of over 100 individuals who have paused here whilst on their migration from the Bay of Biscay and the Bahamas to equatorial waters and back.

Climbing Mount  Teide

Tiede isn't really a hard climb unless you want it to be. This doesn't mean it's easy... it's just that there's quite a gap between Tiede and mountains which are hard climbs.

You Won't Be Disappointed, Trust  Me

Having applied to volunteer for a project involving sighting and recording scientific data on wild whale and dolphin populations in the vast open Atlantic Ocean, my expectations before coming where; I might see something in the space of two weeks, maybe a single pod of dolphins or a few whales if I’m lucky but I found myself constantly surprised with each boat expedition.

Sleeping  Cetaceans

It's awesome to see dolphins playing at the surface and the more dynamic they are the more exciting the experience. Sometimes, though, you can wish they'd sit still just for a moment so you could see all the detail without needing to freeze them in time with a camera.

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.
