Tenerife
Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands, some 300 km west of the Moroccon coast.
 
Since 1494 the islands are part of Spain and even Admiral Nelson could not change that. He lost his right arm in trying.
 
Because of the year-round nice weather, (Tenerife is called the Island of Eternal Spring), it is a major tourist attraction.
 
Away from the crowded beaches and busy tourist centers, the volcano El Teide is well worth a visit. At 3718 meters height, the top is often covered with snown.
 
We spend a nice vacation here in February 2013.
