The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago located less than 100 miles from the African coast. Part of a volcanic chain that includes the Azores and Madeira Island the 8 islands are varied in landscape and size. Offering dozens of beautiful destinations for photography, adventure and hiking. From black sand beaches and rugged cliffs, to sweeping vistas and high mountains the islands have a mind blowing array of differing sceneries and some of the most amazing sunrises and sunsets I have ever seen. You can follow along with some with the destinations by joining me on Trover and exploring other great destinations all over the world.
If you're traveling to Europe, like me you may wish to try and pack in as many destinations into one trip as possible. Luckily Europe is the best place to be able to actually make this happen. With a great transportation network of local and multi country trains, planes and car rentals planning a multi city European vacation is easier than ever.
Keep in mind If you are organizing your own tour around Europe, you can make it as budget conscious or luxurious as you want. For trips that conform to the former, remember that there are plenty of youth hostels that offer dorm rooms for a small price, as well as single rooms for slightly higher as well. Europe has accommodations for every budget and most cities have plenty of cheap and moderately inexpensive hotels that offer more privacy than a hostel, or you can also rent an AirBNB. Traveling by rail one can easily travel from city to city quickly all throughout Europe. Something you can further investigate here.
If you're looking for a high end hotel and don't want to organize your trip yourself there are some great new sites out there that will do the leg work for you. In fact, all you need to do is check out companies like the one you will find on this website and give them a rundown of your requirements, then they will do the rest all the way down to even booking your restaurant meal in the evening! Now you can't get any more convenient than that can you?
There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when you take those last few steps and rise up to the summit of a mountain peak. When you are high above the world below, looking down at the countryside that holds the memory of your footsteps, and the mountainside that you just conquered. There is something about the mountain air, the solitude, the peacefulness of the high peaks that spurs our confidence, our strength and our resilience. We come down from the heights feeling stronger, braver and more apt for a challenge than when we had taken our first steps towards the ascent. That feeling of accomplishment stays with us for days, weeks and even years. It’s not just the personal satisfaction that makes climbing, trekking and hiking a great past time. There’s also the experience of seeing and being part of the natural world that surrounds you. Watching afternoon rains turn dry mountain sides into cascading waterfalls. Seeing birds awake in the misty morning fog before taking flight as the sun rises over a landscape of incredible beauty and watching animals in their natural elements unencumbered by human development or interaction.
