I still have to jump on a bike but… I suppose that was never the plan until day 3. Today was spent wandering very slowly along the coast from Costa Adeje to Los Cristianos and then back again via a route slightly inland. My fitness app tells me 20km and 27,000 steps. That will work wonders on the average.
This trip to Tenerife is one of the many cycling holidays offered by Jet2 Holidays. Jet2 have a range of flights to Tenerife and I chose to travel from Manchester to Tenerife South. I stayed at the Dreams Jardin Tropical Resort and Spa, one of the ‘Winter Sun’ destinations offered by Jet2Holidays but, of course, Jet2Holidays offer holidays to Tenerife all year round.
There’s a video to watch today and some pictures. Yes, it is a touristy built up area but not an unattractive one. I love the architecture of the modern apartment blocks and hotels. Brutal with an Art Deco / Miami-Vice edge, if that’s possible. I will, however, be looking forward to venturing slightly away from the urban area tomorrow on my ‘Pro mountain Bike’. My plan to to cycle north along the coast to Los Gigantes. They are delivering the bike at 11:30am and I have it until late on Thursday. I did see a small number of cycle tourists today; I wonder if they were camping. Does Tenerife have campsites? Anyway… Still looking at visiting the island of La Gomera by ferry on Thursday.
Now. It’s Valentine’s Day so I’m off to Greggs… (see below.)
