Monday Escapes

Summer officially starts tomorrow and you know what that means, it's time to pack your bags and visit an island:

Where you can drive to the top of the world and look down on the clouds:


And enjoy varied terrain with lush peaks and valleys, along with volcanoes surrounded by a craggy landscape:



This island also holds black and white sand beaches:

But you are more likely to find an English Pub rather than a Luau.

It's Tenerife, Canary Islands!

Have a great week!

  1. Ha! Love the last line (very true!). I love how varied the landscape is in the Canaries, rugged and dry inland and tropical and lush on the coast! Wish I was there right now!

  2. Breathtaking photos!! I am craving a vacation so much right now. Somewhere quiet and relaxing and serene. With the final stages of our home building in full gear the best we are doing is renting a beach house in the Hamptons, which we do every summer. Its fun but still involves bed making, laundry, etc......I hope in the fall to get away to a real vacation, that includes lounging by a pool being served a tropical drink, a massage and fabulous meals:)
