We’d been in Tenerife since late March. Sadly, all good things come to an end: It was fun and a learning experience. I knew little about Tenerife besides its “reputation.” And, yes, […]
The road we all travel…. And why do I say that? My eighteen year old English niece loves a certain American TV program. I detect based on what I see around me […]
We ventured yesterday to La Caleta. It’s a village here in Tenerife above Los Cristianos, and it has some pleasant restaurants. It was well-worth an afternoon: While we were eating, a twenty-something […]
Yesterday, we did a Tenerife island coach tour – covering mostly the west, north and east, of the island. It picked us up about 8am from a nearby hotel. (Hence my earlier […]
Of my 8 great-grandparents, 5 were Italians, including several Sicilians. My wife likes to joke when we’ve been in Italy that Italians don’t seem to know what to make of me. “You […]
We did another long Tenerife hike yesterday. This time it was 11 miles (17 kms) mostly on rocky paths. Is willingly doing that sort of thing, how do you define insanity? We […]

The net is down again at the apartment here in Tenerife. We’ve gone out for the day. For lunch, at a lovely coastal place, we saluted my late uncle with lunch: If […]
After our Tuesday hike, we had a relatively quiet day yesterday. And, importantly, courtesy of the Spanish (Canary Islands) sunshine….
Our walking guide yesterday was an English guy who has lived here in Tenerife about 10 years. He knows his stuff. Led by him, we spent a pleasant – if windswept – […]
When we were out yesterday, I noticed her for a few seconds. She was about ten feet away, between probably 25 and 30 years of age, standing by herself, leaning against metal […]
I prefer to keep this site mostly as a “refuge” from “the world” – to talk about writing, books (including, uh, yes, my own), travel, culture, and other life matters, in a […]
The part in yesterday’s post about seeing Kindle-reading sunbathers “enthralled” in their books got me thinking some more. And when I start “thinking,” that’s possibly a bit dangerous. And when I start […]
