Tenerife

— Written by Tamara on

Past May we spend two wonderful weeks on the island of Tenerife. We decided to stay up in the north, since it seemed most interesting for us. We rented apartments in San Andrés, a village/town near Tenerife’s capital city Santa Cruz, and Puerto de la Cruz, the most popular tourist place in the north of the island. From there we took of on some smaller excursions with our rental car. We didn’t want to stay at the nearby beaches all the time, but we also kept exploring pretty low-key. Tenerife is a beautiful island and we were fascinated by the diverse nature which is often so different then what we know from Austria and Lithuania.

I’d like to share some photos of our first real family holiday… I took A LOT of pictures, but these photos are among my favourites (the best pictures of course are with our super-cute son, but in deference to his privacy we don’t share pictures online on which one can see his face in detail). Enjoy the views!
