Tenerife here I come

Yes, today is the day that I am setting off for a short week in Tenerife. My flight is 7-30 PM, so I shall probably set out for the airport in about 5 hours time. It will certainly make a nice change to be on holiday for once. I expect to be arriving at my accommodation something like 1 AM or shortly after. It may not be the best time to arrive, but since there is transport arranged from the airport it should not be much of a problem. The flight time also makes travel to Manchester airport quite simple. The timing with my new recycling bin was excellent because it was delivered this morning, so now I can dispose of empty cans and milk bottles before leaving the house.

Enjoy your holiday! This is the second post about Tenerife in as many days. Funny how these things go!

It seems you've been nowhere but on holiday but good for you. Make the most of it. And I did think a week was 7 days - not sure about a 'short week' or am I getting overly picky? Whatever - enjoy your time away. Maybe you'll find some unusually shaped postcards. :)

This is my first holiday all year. I will be looking at postcards while away and unusual shaped ones would be a real bonus.

@Asylum The year is only 9 days old... Did you expect this to be more than just your first holiday, like, second or even third maybe?

@sishy7 No, but it is a late start and the year is already drifting by.

Have a safe trip and enjoy your holiday. It's a perfect timing to go in a warmer place. I feel miserable today, I got a cough and sore throat, all my bones ache. I try not to go out and stay safely inside.

The weather in Switzerland cannot be as bad as England, which is a great incentive to try a warmer climate for a few days.

@Asylum Look at this photo taken on the shores of the Lake Geneva. It's not the snow, but the water of the lake moved by the wind and frozen by the cold.

So do you plan to golf a bit? I don't think I would like it there, it looks over developed so wouldn't have much for my camera to photograph.

There is a vast amount of scenery, flora and fauna, so you would find plenty to photograph.

From what I saw online it has golf courses all around which means there isn't much wildlife to photograph @Asylum I'm not a pro photographer but I love trying to take shots of wildlife.

I hope you have a great time, and take lots of great photos to share with the rest of us! As cold as it's been here where I live, I could use some nice beach photos.

Cold in Florida? It is probably warmer there than in Tenerife.

You seem to be the only one around here who is a perpetual traveller. May be a book on the lines of 'Gullivers Travels' would be in order? Enjoy your holiday.

Have a great time, my hubby and I have visited Tenerife several times. This time of the year is perfect as it's pleasantly warm without being too hot and ideal for walking. You'll be escaping the Artic weather that is due to hit the UK.

The current UK weather is certainly a great incentive to visit such a place. I have also been before and enjoyed it.
