Hi there,

As I mentioned earlier I have been to Tenerife last year. I want to tell you why this trip was special for me.

Puerto de la Cruz

So it all started with my mum telling me about one of her feelings. She said that she knows she is going to travel to Tenerife three times in her life. She had been there twice before, once with her friend and once with my dad when they were on honeymoon. She said when she is going to Tenerife for the third time we will come with her. She said she is going to save money the whole year so we could travel to the island for a week. I was sooo excitied. I have never flown before and I have never seen the ocean and palm trees. I couldn't wait summer.

We packed our luggage and headed to the airport. I have never been to the airport before. We parked the car and went into the building. In that instant I fell in love with the place. I loved the international atmosphere of it, the lots of people talking and waiting for their flight.
We went through security check, then we waited in the departure lounge. We didn't have to wait long, soon enough we were standing in a line going to the plane. When boarding the plane I couldn't help myself, I had to touch the plane's side.
We settled in our seats - I got the window seat - and watched the flight attendants show us what to do in case of emergency. After that was the most exciting part...the take off. I LOVED that feeling when the plane suddenly sped up and we took off.
After I got over the first hour of "omg I'm flying", I was beyond bored. And after a while it was uncomfortable to sit there. I couldn't wait to get up and move.
After five long hours of flying we had to buckle our belts. We were ready to land. The exciting feeling was there again. I LOVED the landing too. I wanted to do it again, haha.
Leaving the plane I went to help my dad rent a car. Since I was the only one speaking any other language than Hungarian (my brother speaks English too, but he was at a beginner level at the time), it fell on me to communicate with the locals. With the car keys in hand we grabbed our suitcases and made our way out of the airport and to the rental car.

Our accommodation was located in Puerto de la Cruz so we had to get around the island. Since my parents have been here before they remembered a lot of things such as routes and other places. We found the hotel quite easily. After checking in we went to our rooms to unpack. Soon it was dinner time. After a nice meal we decided to go check out the beach. It was wonderful and relaxing listening to the sound of the ocean. It was the perfect way to end the day.

Jardin Botanico, Puerto de la Cruz

In the following days we went to a botanic garden (Jardin Botanico), which I fell in love with since it was full of every kind of palm trees, banana trees, exotic palnts and beautiful flowers. I could spend every day there walking around and just listening to the voices of the nature.
We saw the thousand-year-old Dragon Tree in Icod de los Vinos, La Orotava's most beautiful garden, we saw dolphins, orcas, seals and parrots in Loro Parque. We climbed up to Teide (a volcano) - okay, more like drove up since we went by car - and saw varied landscapes.
We went on a dolphin watching boat trip which was the least best part of the holiday because I got sick and it's one of the worst feelings in the world I think. But we saw dophins swimming alongside our boat, I can't describe that feeling but it was like a dream coming true. It was wonderful.
We visited Tenerife's capital, Santa Cruz. In this one week we saw lots of banana trees, a hundred kind of animals, beautiful viewes, many people and nice buildings.

The most beautiful place I have ever been was at Masca. We had to go up a mountain by car - it was a dangerous road but we made it and it was worth it. The view was breathtaking. Tears welled up in my eyes at the view and at the feeling of the perfect moment. I felt happy.
