Canary Islands, Spain

Canary Islands, Spain

Came to the Canary Islands for a few days….and so far it has turned into to two weeks. Just lovely here!!! Meeting people from all over Europe that come here to escape winter up north. Will post more later. Just wanted to let everyone know where I was and say hello. ?

I am very sad that my trip will be coming to an end soon. It has been a fantastic year and has gone by unbeleivably fast! My plan is to stay here on the islands and relax for a bit, before heading over to Hawaii. I have signed up for yoga teacher training there in April….and will go back to Arizona at the end of April.

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

I wanted to join these surfers, but the water was too cold for this Arizona girl! Maybe if we get some really warm days….

Tenerife has a fabulous specialty coffee called a Barraquito. It has layers with condensed milk, coffee, cream, brandy, and cinnamon!! Trying it is reason enough to visit the island….

    Hi Julie,

    Yes, the weather is great although this week we are having our first 90+ temps. With all our rain the desert is very beautiful with flowers and vegetation we don’t normally see.

    When you get back and are ready to take a trip down memory lane let me know. We are looking forward to catching up

      Kerry, you are sooo sweet…I am starting to really look forward to getting back and would LOVE to meet with you an Ann. I hope all is well with both of you. šŸ™‚ it’s probably prime motorcycle riding season, so hope you are taking some nice weekend trips. When you do something like this, you find that some people stand out more in your memory as quality people in your life …and you certianly are one of them. I would like to make sure we remain friends when I get back…
      Kudos to you and have a great week!!!

    Wow – looks wonderful! I was just wondering where you were now the other day. Canary Island looks like a great place to enjoy some time. I cannot believe almost a whole year has gone by. You sure have seen and experienced a lot this past year. Hawaii and the yoga teacher training sound like a very positive way to wrap up your adventure – and perhaps jump start whatever future direction you may take. I have very fond memories of going to a week long Bikram yoga retreat on Kauai several years ago – two hot yoga classes a day, met wonderful people, enjoyed the beautiful island and even got to go swim in the ocean right after yoga class – priceless. I’m sure your yoga teacher training experience in Hawaii will be equally as wonderful.

      Thanks Erynn….things have gone so fast, it is crazy. I have never dpbeen to Hawaii, so am looking forward to it. I doubt yoga will provide a full income for me, but it should help some when I get back!
      Hope you are liking club Scottsdale….it will be nice to have my place back and have you as a neighbor. šŸ™‚
