We put together a 2-week multi-destination itinerary which includes
& Tenerife with stopovers in Spain – the medieval city of Gran Canaria and the capital Girona . It’s quite a lot of travelling for a 14-day trip, but well enriched with a wide variety of locations and potential activities. Be sure to first check out our Madrid . Plan, Maps and Budget
Tenerife Siam Park 🌊
Tower of Power - A Tenerife Siam Park sensation: An insane 30-meter vertical drop from an Inca temple then underwater through a shark tank.
The Canaries with stopovers in Spain
We put together a 2-week multi-destination itinerary which includes Tenerife & Gran Canaria with stopovers in Spain - the medieval city of Girona and the capital Madrid.
Loro Parque - More than just a zoo
The highlight of our visit to Tenerife was our day trip out to Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz, where you can find the largest parrot sanctuary in the world.
Tenerife North - Puerto de la Cruz
The first thing we noticed in Puerto de la Cruz was the predominance of German tourists and signs everywhere in German. It was beginning to look like our Spanish lessons had been for nothing....
Girona Airport/Barcelona Transfers
With its proximity to Barcelona, Girona is a great place to start a trip to more exotic locations. Luckily, Girona transfers from airport and onwards to Barcelona are straightforward enough if you plan ahead.
Maspalomas Gay Paradise
What is it with Spain? Wherever you look there's a bloke sporting a jockstrap and high heels...
Canary Islands Itinerary - via Spain
We went to the Canary Islands, but didn't see any canaries. We went to the Virgin Islands too, & didn't see any canaries there either...
Gran Canaria ferry from Tenerife
The Gran Canaria ferry from North Tenerife is only marginally cheaper than flying, but handy for visiting Santa Cruz, Agaete or Las Palmos.
Madrid Airport Transfers, Hotels
With so much to see & do, booking a central location is key to getting the most from a short break in Madrid, and your airport transfers couldn't be simpler
Madrid Attractions and Eating Out
Our Madrid budget break featured flamenco dancers with attitude, plenty of 'Ole's & some serious stamping - I wouldn't want these guys living above my flat.
Golf del Sur - Tenerife South
We stayed at the Grand Muthu Golf del Sur - Tenerife South. With a name like that I was expecting Samual L. Jackson to greet us at reception.
Girona - Where to Stay and Eat
A picturesque & inexpensive city with gourmet Catalan cuisine if you choose well - One highlight of a Girona City stopover is the food.
