Earlier on this year I paid a quick visit to Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain. A land of contrasts, Tenerife enjoys a great climate all year round, something which makes it a magnet for northern European tourists looking for a bit of warmth in their colder months. This has led in the past few decades to a certain degree of massive construction, especially along the southern coast. Luckily, Tenerife still hides some incredibly beautiful gems if you look around a bit.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
