Epic trail. Masca Gorge, Tenerife Island

Rough, spectacular, wild…only a few attributes of this exhilarating  Pirates trail

I did some travelling since my visit to Tenerife and although I saw some beautiful places, Tenerife remains one of my favourite places. Sure, Portugal is also running for this place but Tenerife and Portugal are two different experiences…

There were many things which made me adore Tenerife but this time I will talk about the most spectacular trail I EVER DONE, Masca Gorge.

Masca Gorge is part of Teno Rural Park placed on the west of the island. It is one of the most sensational parts of the islands and if you happen to land at Tenerife Sur airport during the day you cant miss it. When approached  by car is not less spectacular, the road is winding through some scenic landscape. Indulge yourself with some adrenalin by crossing the park taking the road from Santiago del Teide to Buenavista del Nte. It will be worth it. If you add some fog , wind and twilight the fun is guaranteed. Proceed with cautious, though. The road is appealingly beautiful but none the less dangerous.

Tenerife, in my books, is number one travel destination for 2016

The forces of nature had to collide in order to bring to the surface this wonder of nature, Tenerife…

I have to admit, I had Tenerife in my mind for a while now. Most of been the Winter or maybe the fact that last year I was packing my bags, destination..Tenerifeee!!!

The general impression is that Tenerife is an island where one can sit on the beach and enjoy the holiday in some resort. For most people it probably is, but for me, Tenerife represents a fantastic island with the most stunning landscape I ever saw.

Might be its volcanic nature which make it so dangerously attractive to me, or maybe the fact that even while up in the air the volcano Pico del Teide looks like a lighthouse in a sea of clouds letting me know that there, in the vastness of Atlantic Ocean there is an island which has so much to reveal to me. Well.. I can continue blabbering and bore you to death, or I can go straight to the point.

Tenerife!..That`s Amore!

The Story of a Wanderer Intoxicated by Wanderlust

Probably the first thought after reading the title will be why amore, Tenerife is in Spain right?…Well, the story goes like this, “That`s Amore“ it is the name of a pastry shop in El Medano, Tenerife. I came across it while walking around that little town on the south shore of the island. I was hungry like a wolf, I was cold, unfortunately, I was wearing some short pants, and I should not have to, wind turns out to be not so friendly, and since I love pasties I entered immediately the moment I have seen the shop. Hmmmm..it was a delight.

Tenerife!..That`s Amore!
