Tenerife was the first of the Canary Islands that I visited a few years ago. The reason for the trip was my wish to experience the second biggest Carnaval in the world after Rio de Janeiro. And it was amazing! I was even more impressed by its lovely nature parks with volcano and moon landscapes, the diversity of plants, sweet little towns loaded with history, delicious food, a lot of sun and mild temperatures in February! So after this trip I was sure that I have to visit the remaining six islands of this beautiful and very special place for me!
Over the last few years I visited all these places in beautiful Switzerland. I felt in love with the lakes, gorgeous mountains and historic towns. This little country has everything what I fancy: chocolate, cheese, stunning nature and maybe the happiest cows in the world.
Recently I visited Gran Canaria and the island became instantly one of my favourite places. I love its incredibly Iong beaches, dunes of white sand, beautiful mountains, stunning nature, picturesque villages and different climates with long days full of sunshine. Due to this variety it is often described as a "continent in miniature". The map shows the places I visited on the island, but there is much more to discover.
