Spain transportation travel

Crossing Complete

So a bit of a delay due to internet access at sea. My humblest apologizes. The delay may also be partially caused by me completing a couple of goals I had set for myself. I am proud to state I have sampled every beer offered on the ship and I have sampled every drink on the Molecular Bar (cocktails) menu. And yes I have still managed to work out every day. It is the only reason I am still functioning.

A great way to pass time on the ship is at the Corning Museum of Glass show. Three very talented glass blowers create original works of art every day in front of a live audience. It is neat because the items are not for sale and the show is simply for education and entertainment sake. Karen and I spent the afternoon yesterday playing bocce ball on the lawn while listening to and occasionally watching the glass show. It was very cool.Image

The weather the last couple of days has been a bit of a drag. Overcast and windy with an average temperature of 19 degrees.

Landfall

Today we finally made landfall in Tenerife, Canary Islands. After a pleasant breakfast in our room we went on a tour across the island to Mount Teide in Las Canadas National Park. Very cool landscape with a different variety of pine tree in Esperanza Forest to a moonlike landscape around Mount Teide. It is all a result of volcanic activity. We went from sea level to 2400 metres elevation. Our tour guide was great. A bit difficult to understand t times, but obviously knew his stuff and proud of where he lived.

We are enroute to Lanzarote, Canary Islands as I type.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.

  1. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on
    sites I stumbleupon every day. It will always be exciting to read through articles from other authors and use something
    from their sites.

  2. This is a topic that is near to my heart… Many thanks! Exactly where are your
    contact details though?
