Romeria San Jose Rider with Horse at Sanlucar kiosk, Photo by Lifecruiser

Feeling thirsty? Stop at the kiosk as this rider did in Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain, last year when we were there.

Come back here for the rest of the amigos - not only drinks - in a day or two.

Tenerife Island Road Boat, Photo by Lifecruiser

This Tenerife boat on the road is exactly like me right now: stranded. I have no idea what so ever what it did there - and not what I’m doing over here either.

I long for the Sea just as much as that boat probably does!

Las Americas Beach Bay, Tenerife Island, Photo by Lifecruiser

Playa de las Americas are situated in the South of Tenerife Island, Spain. Combined with an attractive beach walkway, lots of sport activities and the wonderful climate, it’s not so difficult to understand why it’s so popular.

The South is more sunny and warmer than the North side, we could clearly notice the difference. Tenerife island is also known as the island of eternal spring.

I would also call it Tenerife’s most popular tourist destination. It stretches for quite a bit of the coast with different beaches almost all the way with breakwaters to stop the imported sand from Africa from being washed away.

I’m not sure if the beach above really contained imported sand from Sahara, it looked rather black to me. Perhaps it get mixed up after a while.

I’ll show you a close up of the sand on that beach, in which you clearly can see that it has some darker lava sand in the mix.

For us, Las Americas seemed to be a bit lacking of the genuine Canarian culture though, if you wanna experience something local while there.

The explanation of that is that many tourists from northern Europe comes here frequently during the whole year and especially in the winter, when their home countries are cold. We noticed very many Brits here, but also Swedes.

There’s also lots of shops, bars and restaurants and it’s here the most lively nightlife is, filled with pubs, disco’s and shows, ranging everything from low budget to luxury. I would even call it exhausting nightlife.

Especially if I should judge from an older TV documentary (Tenerife Uncensored) I’ve seen reporting from here, but it might have shaped up a bit since then.

That’s also the reason why we didn’t stay there later in the evening than we did, just enjoying the sunset at a seaside restaurant.

We had a nice relaxed evening there, me with drinks in the same color as the sun, hubby was not as lucky since he had to drive us home.
