I     arrived     in     Tenerife     on     30th September   2015   and   took   the   local buses   from   TFS   airport   in   the   south of   the   island   to   Costa   del   Silencio, where   I   based   myself   in   a   friend’s apartment.   Thank   you   my   friend   and ex     Mediterranean     crew     member Inga.   I   departed   the   island   on   3rd December 2016. The Canary Islands: The   main   islands   are   (from   largest to   smallest)   Tenerife,   Fuerteventura, Gran   Canaria,   Lanzarote,   La   Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. Tenerife: Tenerife    is    the    largest    and    most populous   island   of   the   seven   Canary Islands.   It   is   also   the   most   populated island   of   Spain,   with   a   land   area   of 2,034.38     square     kilometres     and 898,680 inhabitants. About     five     million     tourists     visit Tenerife   each   year,   the   most   of   any of   the   Canary   Islands.   It   is   also   one of      the      most      important      tourist destinations    in    Spain.    Tenerife    is served     by     two     airports,     Tenerife North    Airport    and    Tenerife    South Airport. Santa   Cruz   de   Tenerife   is   the   capital of the island. Costa Del Silencio: Located on the south coast, this base for my two month stay on the island. The resort now known as Costa del Silencio was one of the first areas of Tenerife to be specifically developed for tourism. This occurred during the late 1960s. Sightseeing: Whilst on the island I shall see all that I possibly can, for the most part using public transport, but for maybe 2-3 days renting a car to get to the more inaccessible places. Places visited by bus: Las Gallatas, Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Americas, El Medano, Candelaria, Santa Cruz, La Laguna, Puerto De La Cruz, La Orotavia, Icod and Garachico.
