How will COVID-19 affect Tenerife?

As I finish my seemingly more regular lunch of a cheese sandwich and a couple of glasses of red wine, I’m thinking that this will have to stop when we get back to normal, my doctor certainly wouldn’t approve at all…but the question of normality stuck in my mind…what will normal be when we get over this pandemic? No...this is nothing like it at all..lol Like a lot of people, I’ve had a...

Having been home a week today, I've been...

Is Brexit going to be all it’s cracked up to be?

There are undoubtedly a number of potential buyers still pondering the pros and cons of what Brexit might bring, so I thought that now we know a little more...or at least we've had time to think about...

Weather in Tenerife

Recently the weather has been bad.  When I say bad, it's not as bad as it has been in the UK of late but never-the-less, it has been a poor few weeks here in Tenerife. February and especially March are renowned for being the two main months of bad weather in Tenerife, and although I have been here for some years, it is still a shock to the system. This year hasn't been as bad as last year...

Calima in Tenerife

Many people ask what is a Calima, the answer is simple, it is a dust storm carrying sand from the Sahara.  In fact I remember years ago when I was a teenager, we lived in the south east of England and the weather people said that we were going to be coated in dust from the Sahara desert.  At that time, I thought it was fascinating to know that the sand has travelled all the way from Africa to land on...

Rally cars and Formula 1 track in Tenerife

Apart from the obvious, go-kart racing, there isn't a great opportunity to see any motorsport in Tenerife.  There are the frequent car enthusiast and classic car get-togethers, plenty of Fernando Alonso Formula 1 fans that meet in the bars at Sunday lunchtimes, or maybe a little earlier..., to watch the Formula one racing. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA For motor racing fans that would like to be up...
