Living in Tenerife is great, arguably one of the best places to live in the world according to a journalist from the Guardian newspaper. No matter what you love about a place, there can also be things that you…let’s say…don’t love so much. I don’t like to use the word ‘hate’ because that is really too strong a word, especially for a place that you love to live.
Of the things I love about living in Tenerife, probably I have to start off with the weather. It’s a bit odd, because although I’m not actually a sun worshiper, so to speak, I do love to see the sun out, it tends to bring out the best in people. The fact that you don’t have to consider whether or not it’s going to be raining when you want to arrange a BBQ, or go out for a walk with the dogs. Now, I’m not saying that it’s warm all the time, in December through to February can be cold and it can also rain, but even during the coldest of nights, it rarely drops below 15ºC on the coast.
Next on the list on my list of love for living in Tenerife is the food and wine. I just love to stop off at one of the better Spanish restaurants or tapas bars and have tapas and wine on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. There is really nothing better than a couple of hours relaxing eating nice food and drinking a couple of glasses of cold red…yes, cold… that’s how they serve it here…glorious…!!!
