I spent an amazing week in Tenerife, Canary Islands. I loved the beautiful sunny climate, the relaxing beaches, and the unique flora around the island. Here are 10 awesome experiences that you should not miss!Read More
Mattia and I decided to spend the last week of 2015 in Tenerife. Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, a part of Spain but it is off the coast of Africa (around Western Sahara & Morocco).

I had previously been to Spain before in 2011 for four days in Barcelona. Barcelona was a huge city, oddly reminiscent of a combination of New York and Los Angeles, but with a European twist. I was happy to get the chance to visit Spain again two years later in December 2013.

I love it here. I would live here. Barcelona's an interesting combination of New York and Los Angeles, with a European twist. It's a vibrant and dynamic city, and not in the travel-books, vague kind of feel-good way. It's filled with things that are colorful, wavy, art-nuevo, gothic, miscellaneous.

Four days of walking everywhere. Four days of eating tapas and drinking sangria. Four days of showering in the spaceship shower that plays music & has funny lights & water shooting at you from strategically placed jets. (Book Lullaby Hostel Plaza Catalunya--it's the best!) Four days of overindulging in Zara, Bershka, and Pull & Bear. Four days of looking at the interesting skyline that is Barcelona. Pretty much all the cliches (and more!) except the partying.Read More
