sunglasses... swimsuits and my favorite european breakfast: corn flakes with european milk.
first time for both ben and emily on a black sand beach
tenerife, canary islands: beautiful desert isle.
very happy people.
when we got back from the canary islands... we really just wanted to keep our beach shirts in a plastic bag and smell them every once in a while (you know that sunscreen/beach smell?)
we wished we could have stayed longer. it was 75 degrees and very perfect. we stayed at the santa barbara golf resort, which was a very good price and was a full apartment. i kind of really loved it and would go back in a second. we got to cook all our meals and keep ice cream in the freezer!
i was fascinated by the canary islands because...
well for one... sometimes i get super excited to be in a place that i've only seen on a map... that isn't near anywhere i've been before. and then i'm there and it kind of blows my mind (that's my dazed and confused moment for the post)
the spanish people spoke was much more latin american than spain spanish (even though it's spain...)
there are tons of brits and germans that visit the canary islands but not a lot of spanish people. another weird thing.
did i mention the weather was perfect and there wasn't a cloud in the sky?
mr ben and i usually travel, we don't vacation... so when we do take a little time to vacation,
