I have a week off that I wasn’t sure of how and where to spend it. But I know one thing for sure -not in Ireland. I have more exotic places in my list that I have been wanting to do for a long long time but safety comes first. No point going to places where we would be running around like zombies in apocalypse. Although, we could be hot zombies in bikini. Just sayin 😝
I just need somewhere, anywhere-warm enough where the colors of dawn wakes me up gently and the breeze from the ocean whispers me lullaby. Of course, most importantly, I could sip my alcohol without anyone judging me 😁
Hassle free. Common enough. Reasonably priced. Yup, Tenerife which is the largest island of the Caribbean sounds fairly OK. Honestly or #tbh as my husband calls it -Tenerife was never on my list. I normally love more exotic destinations, culturally challenging which offers unique experiences. But wtheck. I booked the flights, accommodation and off we went!
We had to drive down from Limerick to catch our flights from Dublin so we arrived at the coast of Alcala in the evening.
We had this apartment for our first night. Super affordable, good value for money and 2 minutes walk from the beach. Our host suggested a seafood restaurant nearby called Escondida and it was good. We also finished a whole jug of sangria!🍹
We woke up early the next morning for a walk along the beach. Managed to snap few pictures too!
And.. Just wanna show off my warrior pose😝😂😜 I have been diggin the yoga recently.. And Hello Kitty is da bomb! 😭
We managed to be fruitful by buying some local snacks and getting more info of what to do in the tourists info centre. Soon after, we head off to our next hotel destination where we will be staying 4 days 3 nights just 10 minutes walk from here.
As we arrived at the main reception of Gran Melia Palace, we were seated until our designated butler came. The hotel was divided into 2 and the one we’re staying will be for adults only 😝
Anyhooo, here are few snaps on our first day @Red Level.
An hour later, we made our way to Siam Water Park. Since the birthday boy requested it, I had to. Not complaining! We did 80% of the rides but some rides are just crazy. I can feel my heart rolling on the floor just looking at it. Thankfully, I was with a cardiologist 😂😂😂😂 Fifie, stop being lame please.
This ride was so long! I can’t record any of the rides cuz my waterproof camera didn’t come on time 😞 Too bad!
Upon our return, we had a power nap and came down for dinner then.
Following day, we have a long day ahead and I woke up at 6am to catch early breakfast. The selections were amazing in Gran Melia. I wish I have a big mouth to fit it all in. But.. don’t I have it already? 😝
Our next stop is the most stunning yet -Masca village. Only 70 ‘inhabitants’ live here according to our tour guide. And that might include the animals too. He said he wasn’t sure 😂 The villagers have to walk 3 hours by foot to reach the peak where a lot of them selling hand-made stuffs for tourists. Its untouch beauty…. simply took my breath away
Our last stop was at Los Gigantes. It was a full day tour and we were exausted but having too much fun! Our guide was really funny and we made friends along the way.
Upon arrival at our hotel, we went straight to the beach to find this spectacular treasure. Thanks God for the time we had!
For the evening, we changed up, went for coctail evening and dinner there after. We celebrated the birthday boy so hope you enjoyed the trip!!
Ok guys, my eyes are just literally closing on me. They have mind of their own. Sorry if I wasn’t as entertaining as my brain is a poo poo once the clock passed 10pm 😳
