Snapshots from Tenerife

After a long break, I am finally back! I took a little time out, because I was poorly, again, then we spent a gorgeous two weeks on the sunny island of Tenerife, I think I needed it and when we got back, we went and did lots of family visits following our news, read on to find out what; So I think it's safe to say I have been very occupied for the last four weeks, but I am finally back and have lots of blog posts lined up from a what's in my beach bag post, yes I was still thinking about blogging on holiday, to my latest hauls, I even shopped on holiday.

During our holiday, we spent two weeks on the island of Tenerife in Playa de las Americas, we have been there a few times already, and we love it, it feels like home! We stayed in two different resorts, one each week and both were gorgeous, though I must admit, I did prefer the first resort as the bedroom and kitchen were gorgeous, although the second one had an amazing bathroom! 

We went on three excursions during our stay, Mount Teide is a must as you get to see some amazing views. Loro Parque is a park/zoo based around birds, but it has so much more to see! They put on amazing shows throughout the day including a parrot show, whale show, dolphin show and sea lion show, its a really great day out! Then finally we went to Siam Park which is thee best water park I have been to! The rides are amazing, but the only downside was that I got whiplash! From a ride! I'm not sure if that is actually possible, but I couldn't move my neck for two days after the last ride I went on but I knew that I had done it and it hurt like hell but it wont stop me going back :)

 So here are just a few of the snaps we took...

Apartment two



This bathroom was amazing!

Loro Parque

I let Dan loose with the camera at Loro Parque so there are a ton of photos. I didn't want to bore you with them all, so I just chose the ones that I liked best,


He looks like he's meditating :)


The whales perform such an amazing show!


I think you had to be there to find this one amusing, but he was so chilled out,


This is a baby chimpanzee, he was just the cutest and was only 11 months old, if I remember rightly,


These dolphins know how to jump!

Mount Teide

We took a half day trip up Mount Teide in the first week and it was truly amazing, the views are stunning,







This is one of the smaller Canary Islands called La Gomera, which you can see breaking through the clouds, because we were so high up and it was a clear day we got the chance to see it, which is apparently quite rare :)

Random pictures...





As you can see this glass is almost full to the top with Bacardi, the restaurants in Tenerife really know how to get you drunk! I'm like a fish, so I got drunk pretty quick on these!

This trip will be that one that I will always remember, it was the most amazing holiday, and what made it even more special was because...


Dan proposed! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post, it's a little different from my usual posts, but I felt I needed to explain my absence and I wanted to share my news with you :)
