    Karibik wir kommen!

    October 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Nun geht die große Überfahrt los und wir starten in die Karibik!!! Es warten 5 1/2 Seetage auf uns. Die ein oder andere Party zum Zeitvertreib ist schon geplant. Also wird es vermutlich nicht langweilig. 🙂

    Santa Cruz de Teneriffa

    December 16, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    In La Laguna war es schon sehr sehr windig, wieder unten in Santa Cruz wechselt sich den Rest des Tages Wolken, Regen und Sonne ab, was uns einen schönen Regenbogen 🌈 nach dem anderen beschert.
    Das Wetter ist auch der Grund, warum schon heute morgen der nächste Hafen Funchal abgesagt wurde, wo wir eigentlich morgen hin wollten.
    6-7 Meter hohe Wellen würden uns auf der nächtlichen Überfahrt erwarten, heißt es, und der fliegende Holländer (also unser Kapitän) ist sich zwar sicher, dass die weiße Lady das schaffen würde, bei seinen Passagieren ist er sich da aber nicht so sicher 🤢.
    Während wir uns also in La Laguna rumtreiben, sucht die Crew einen sicheren Hafen für die nächste Nacht.

    Santa Cruz de Teneriffa

    December 16, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Am nächsten Morgen, pünktlich um 7 Uhr erreichen wir das nächste Santa Cruz (irgendwie waren die Spanier nicht sonderlich kreativ 😉), diesmal das Santa Cruz de Teneriffa. Nun, wir waren schon auf Teneriffa, der Hase schon 4x , der Ritter schon 2x - einen Ausflug wollten wir nicht buchen. Der Ritter hatte sich in den Kopf gesetzt, wir buchen vor Ort einen Mietwagen und dann fahren wir nach San Cristóbal de la Laguna und ins Anagagebirge. So weit der Plan...
    Im Rahmen der Überlegungen bezüglich La Palma hat der Ritter allerdings festgestellt, dass er - wie immer vor solchen Reisen - den Führerschein schön sicher zuhause gelassen hat 😳. Der Hase hat eh nie einen Führerschein mit. Also nix mit Mietwagen, die Ritterlaune ist im Keller... Da nutzt auch der schöne Blick auf das Opernhaus nichts.

    Save the waves

    December 28, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Hallo ihr Lieben. Ganz nach dem Motto Save the Waves gibt es auf dem Schiff für (fast) alles wiederverwendbare Flaschen wie die auf dem Bild von der Saftbar. Um den ganzen anfallenden Müll der Weihnachtsgeschenke auch nicht komplett weg zu schmeißen, habe ich gemäß dem Motto beschlossen aus Geschenkband und Geschenkpapier Deko zu basteln. Das goldene Geschenkband schmückt jetzt zum Beispiel meine Juice Flasche und den Rand von meinem Bett.

    Haben auf Teneriffa super tolles Wetter und sitzen bei 21 Grad in der Sonne. ☀️

    Santa Cruz, Tenerife

    January 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We had a good journey from Southampton to our first port of call, Santa Cruz in Tenerife. The Atlantic was generally calm with only a little movement through the Bay of Biscay. En route, we spotted our first whale about 100m from the ship. It came to the surface twice so we had a good view. The further south we travelled the warmer it slowly became. Today it is expected to reach 21 degrees with some sun. We will be delayed leaving port until late this evening because it appears a rogue fishing net has become entangled in one of the propellers and divers need to go down to investigate.Read more

    October 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Tenerife a autobus...wieder ein sehr früher Start in Tag... als Ausflug hatten wir heute eine große Busrundfahrt über die Insel gebucht. Ich denke die Fotos sprechen für sich, eine großartige Landschaft!!!
    Mittag ging es schon wieder zurück, weil schon um 14 Uhr wieder abgelegt wurde...ab jetzt gibts bis zur Karibik nur noch viel Wasser zu sehen.

    Den Nachmittag haben wir in einer Bar auf dem Sonnendeck verbracht, unser erstes Eis gegessen und abends noch eine kleine Komödie in der Schaubühne geschaut. Volles Haus!!! Hier ist wohl immer alles nahezu „ausverkauft“...😂

    Day 386: Back to Spain!

    March 7, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Time to leave Malta and head back to Spain, though to an entirely new spot - the Canary Islands! No real rush leaving today, as our pickup wasn't until 12pm, so we took our time packing up and organising things.

    Our ride to the airport turned up about 20 minutes late but still in plenty of time, so we piled in and set off for the airport. Traffic was much better this time and the driver much saner, so no real issues on the way.

    Check in was fine, though for some reason they were expecting us to have a cat, not a dog! Go figure. Checked my bag through to Tenerife and crossed my fingers that it'll turn up! Had a quick snack before security, then headed through and straight to the gate.

    Not much to report from the actual flight! Schnitzel sat in his bag under the seat in front of Shandos for the full two hours and only made a noise once - when a nearby person had a loud conversation with the steward over whether he could have whiskey and water instead of whiskey and dry. But otherwise he was completely silent.

    Landed in Barcelona around 5pm with plenty of time to kill. Schnitzel went for a pee in the smoker's area, Shandos grabbed some food at McDonalds though I passed as I'd had a larger snack back in Malta. Otherwise we just settled in to some random seats and vegged out. After a while I got bored and found a charging station, stood there and edited a video!

    Finally around 7:30 it was time for our flight. I grabbed a quick dinner from McDonalds, Schnitzel had another pee and then we boarded. The boarding took absolutely f o r e v e r for some reason, absolutely no idea why! Our seats were in the second-last row of the plane and it looked like the plane had come from elsewhere - we were nowhere near the back of the boarding queue but all of the luggage bins were full. I opened nearby ones that were "full" in a fit of pique, and surprise surprise they weren't even close. I shoved our bags in, glared at the stewardess and then sat down.

    Flight out from Barcelona was almost 4 hours and quite bumpy in a couple of places. The seats on Vueling planes are quite thin and not padded - it's good because you get more leg room, but it's not quite as comfortable. And they don't recline either, naturally! I got the middle seat too, so it was't super comfortable for me anyway, especially with a rather portly gent on the aisle seat and Shandos's handbag under my feet, but oh well. It was only a few hours.

    Took a while to get off the plane again since we were so far back, but at least we didn't stand around at the luggage carousel - my bag turned up (thankfully!) within a few minutes of us arriving. Caught a taxi for the 10 minutes ride to our apartment, staying in the spare room of a young-ish French guy's apartment. His two children were apparently very disappointed they didn't get to meet Schnitzel since they were in bed when we arrived!

    A brief chat and then a wind-down before bed around 12:30am; it had been a long day and a change of time zone as well!

    Where it all began

    June 13, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    I guess that if I should start somewhere it should be in Spain, after this is where it all began. This is the country where I was born and this is the country I left behind to go and love abroad. This is the country I first tripped around before I travelled around.

    I was born and grew up in Tenerife. I often travelled to the mainland during my childhood to visit relatives, so there a few places I know quite well. One of them is Málaga, the glitzy capital of the Costa del Sol, and the other is a small village called Milmarcos, which most probably you've never heard of. Well, I'll tell you some about it later on.

    Besides, I have done some road trips with my parents and seen several more towns and cities in Andalusia and some villages in the often forgotten plains of inner Spain. I also did a trip a few years ago with some friends and visited Madrid and Toledo. Unfortunately, I don't know much more about my home country. But that only means that I still have plenty to discover. So, here's a list of some things I'd love to see some day:

    - Visit all seven Canary Islands.
    - Hike the Camino de Santiago.
    - Visit Barcelona. Maybe watch Barcelona FC play at the Camp Nou.
    - Do a road trip in Andalusia and visit Seville (never been there), Cordoba and Granada.
