This was our first time in  Thessaloniki . We didn't have any special expectations; this town did not come with high praise from the internet. It was a regular city, without many attractions. After all, it wasn't Athens. On the other hand, when you visit islands during a cruise,...
After  visiting La Laguna and Candelaria , we went further... We also stopped in Arico Nuevo along the way, after a small detour. We made it following the recommendations of the guidebook, fyi!  I did not understand what there was to see and why we should...
Candelaria is considered the religious capital of the island. The city is famous primarily for its "Black Madonna", a copy of which is situated in the Basilica ( Basilica of Candelaria ). The pilgrims come here by foot (it was written so, although I hope they didn't have to walk from the...
After visiting  the town of Santiago de Teide , we went toward the north coast. And here is the town of Garachico. The most impressive thing was the drive to town. Or rather, the spiral road wrapped around the steep mountain :) Here it is, below... And here are some of the...
The main purpose of this trip were to see the towns of Garachico and Icod de los Vinos. The road to them, from the area of Costa del Silencio, goes partly along the coast and partly away from it - on mountain roads. This part of the island was quite different from the north-east, which...
The port of  Catania was probably the most enjoyable stop during our cruise. The weather was excellent, our ship was moored right next to the center, and there were less tourists in the city than in many other Italian cities!  Catania city is not small, it’s the second largest city...
After  visiting the Teide Volcano , we arrived in the town of La Orotava ( Orotava Valley ). We parked directly by the bridge leading to the old part of the town. La Orotava is one of the oldest towns on the island, and one of the most charming :) I...
Before  Tenerife , I visited two other islands of the Canaries - Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, but I was not amazed by them. They simply weren't my type of places. There was a bit of greenery and a lot of tourists . . . in short.  Therefore, I was going to Tenerife without...
We visited the North of Jutland - the town of  Skagen  - and on the way there, we stopped at a Danish "desert". Yes, there's even their own desert, like in Greece))). Only without scorpions and the Bedouins, but with real sand dunes. It is called ...
We continue walking around San Juan. The most cherished thing I really, really wanted to see in Puerto Rico was their Santos, wooden figures of saints. They are very small, made in rather primitive style, they sunk into my heart already in Cuba. I met them there in several houses. I do not...
