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.

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.

A Visit To Cueva Del Viento - Wind Cave 

It was my last week of my 4 week stay at the project and I wanted to do something special for my last day off. While at the bus stop in Los Cristianos I saw an advert at the bus stop for Cueva Del Viento (Wind Cave), the picture caught my attention instantly.
