I had already chosen Tenerife as an ideal destination for me to develop my skills as a Marine Biologist when I was hired by Frontier to work as an Assistant Research Officer. I was then living in Santa Cruz, the capital located on the northeast of the Island.

Coming back to Tenerife after four days in cold, rainy England felt very similar to putting on a jumper straight after it’s come out of the dryer. At the airport, one step into the sunshine and everyone had already developed a sense of island-time.
Monday, 28 November 2016. Today is the start of my last week in Tenerife, after enjoying 3 weeks on this volunteer project. So here are my thoughts on the project.
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. While that isn’t far off the mark in some ways, it does hit the seasonal changes just as hard as the rest of the world. Some of the changes are subtle and need to be looked for; some hit you over the head.
