I don't know if it's an accomplishment but I flew to Tenerife where I've been staying for a week now. I'm here alone, so I would have liked to have the forum.
I'm here to try to avoid the late-winter slump I usually get, jumped on a last-minute offer when the price went down. And it's having a good effect on me, I've been sleeping like a baby and the food at the hotel is pretty good. The offer included full board, which I wasn't too crazy about, but it's a lot better than I expected. Lots of veggies, both raw and cooked and I'm taking advantage of that. Aaand free wine with lunch and dinner! They're very brave to offer that kind of deal to Icelanders.
I especially love having real daylight, it helps so much with my sleep and energy.
Yesterday I took a trip to the next island to the west, La Gomera. Very interesting tour, it's a beautiful island and the guide was very knowledgable. The people there have a special whistling lanuage which they used to communicate across long distances and we got an example of that.
I'm also getting into better shape, taking long walks and avoiding elevators. Need to swim more, there's a pool here. So it's pretty good although a little more company would be great. Maybe I can get somebody with me next time, now that I know what things are like here.
