Tenerife 2013

Last week I returned from a week long break in Tenerife with my boyfriend. We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Oasis Mango located in Los Cristianos (south of the island). The weather was beautiful all week; very sunny, breezy and hot.

We spent a lot of time walking around discovering the local area and scenery. As well as eating way too much delicious food and relaxing by the pool/beach we picked up lots of cool trinkets and souvenirs!

We were planning on visiting the highest point in Spain, Mount Teide, but a mix up with coaches meant we couldn’t go. Although this does give us a very good excuse to go back again sometime!

Here are some of our pictures:

Have you been to Tenerife or another Canary Island? What did you think?

On our way home we stopped off in Nottingham. We were too tired to do much but we will be going back to visit the castles and Sherwood Forrest!

Have you visited Nottingham? What do you do there?

Where are you going on vacation this year?
