I’ve always said that the best way to discover new places is to get lost. I’m always curious as to where small roads and tiny streets between buildings may lead.

This time it was in Tenerife we got lost, but don’t worry, it was all intentional. We didn’t know what we were about to discover but we were all pleasantly surprised when we got there. I find the same things happen with life as well. We don’t usually know where our next big step is going to take us but if we’re brave enough to wander into the unkown, the result is always exceptional.

We found ourselves on the bright side. A street with houses coloured in vibrant shades and tones and flowers hanging down the balconies. There it was, some serious competition to the streets of Notting Hill in London, just brighter and even more picturesque. The next street down the road was just as beautiful. My favourite discovery was a bright green garage door that you can see in the photo below.

Let me know in the comments what was the best thing you discovered last time you got lost?

Apart from being the month of love, February is also my birthday month. So we kickstarted it with a short holiday in Tenerife where we stayed with friends for a few days. We’ve also planned another trip (a road trip!!!) to Amsterdam. So as much as I was excited to swap cold rainy London for the beautiful Canary Islands, I’m somehow more enthusiastic about our next Amsterdam adventure.

Tenerife was fantastic and we managed to do quite a few exciting things, including a trip to the Volcano and a few local villages, where we ate at a traditional Guachinche. We also spent a couple of days at the beach and visited the capital city of Santa Cruz.

We have visited Fuerteventura before, which is also part of Canary Islands and it’s famous for its white sandy beaches but Tenerife is a lot more vibrant and dynamic, and was definitely a love at first sight, because of the beautiful nature and the energy it radiates. And with the blue skies and great weather all year round, it’s hard to take a bad photo here!
