I’m back! – Post holiday blues…

Hey!

I’m back from The Canaries and missing it more than ever! As I mentioned in my previous post, I have so much more to share with you guys from the rest of our holiday 🙂

After some lovely relaxation for the first couple of days, we thought it was about time to venture out and explore the island a little.

Heading over to the famous town of Playa De Las Americas, we spent the day on the sandy beach. In Tenerife, the beaches’ natural sands come from the volcano, Mount Teide on the island, which gives the sand a slightly darker, more brown tint than normal golden sand, still very fine and soft.

Making our way to the stunning Teide National Park we boarded a cable car to Teide Volcano, the highest point in Spain – towering the landscape at a mighty 3718m. As the car rises, the splendour of the landscape unfolds beneath your feet – it’s absolutely breathtaking! A definite must when in Tenerife!!

We made a few stops along the way up to Teide Volcano, one including a visit to an authentic Spanish Bodega or wine cellar called Zeverón, producing specialist wines for international export. I’m not usually much of a wine drinker but I have to say, some of the wines we tasted were delicious and freshly distilled adding to the smooth and rich flavour.

And of course we had to make the stop when we saw an authentic Churreria for some mouth-watering Churros con Chocolate! Also a must when in Spain, these deep fried dough pastries coated in sugar and cinnamon, dipped in a cup of hot, dark chocolate sauce, are to die for!!!

The next morning started with a horse-back riding hack along the coastline of South Tenerife. I absolutely love horses and horse-riding! As I no longer have time to take lessons, I try to take every opportunity to go, when abroad 🙂

As we were living on the footstep of a golf course, we had to take the opportunity to play along the captivating coastline with views of Mount Teide in the distance, the warm sea breeze blowing through your hair…

Our second to last day had arrived, and we decided to take a trip up to North Tenerife, which took around an hour by car, to visit Loro Parque – a parrot paradise and dolphinarium. There was 4 shows which we saw; the Loro Show, Dolphin Show, Whale Show and Sea Lion Show. The best two, in my opinion, where the Whale and Dolphin shows – they were absolutely magical! A definite must see in the Canary Islands!!

How I Started My Blog and A Few Pieces of Advice

It’s been nearly 2 months now since I started my blog and I can’t believe the amazing feedback and support I have received from it! I feel so grateful to everyone who takes a moment to read my posts and I honestly just love inspiring others with my posts.

I initially started this blog as a more regularly way to post about the things I love, as compared to my Youtube Channel where I would not post as often. As I have been working throughout my summer this year, I have hardly had any time to film and edit videos and thought that starting a blog would be the best way to keep up with the latest trends and talk about my favourite topics. Making this blog has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

For advice, if any of you out there are reading this right now and are in two minds whether to start blog or not, I’d say do it! Don’t hesitate and don’t look back, it’s a great decision and once you get into the flow of things it’ll become a lot easier! Believe in yourself!

As I’m pretty new at this myself, I’ll leave the professional advice to the experts. Right now I’m still learning and there’s such an amazing and wide platform out there in the blogging world that is yet for me to discover! I can’t wait!

Please don’t forget to check out my nominations and to mention me in your posts 🙂 Thank you again to Bhavika who has been one of my constant supporters in the blogging world 🙂
