How to Easily Get the Best Out of Your Next Holiday

It is probably stating the obvious, but most people love to take holidays. They plan them months or even a year or more in advance, then dream about them and anticipate their getaway as the time gets nearer and nearer. This is totally understandable, as unfortunately many people are not always doing the job that they love, or even worse, they downright hate their work.
Holidays are a way to escape from the norm and are the perfect opportunity to forget about the humdrum boredom of normal day to day life such as the daily commute, sitting in a miserable office for eight hours, dealing with workplace politics and having to the listen to the same monotonous conversations with colleagues.



Even if you truly love your work and are generally enjoying life, a vacation to see and experience somewhere new is never a bad thing. The very best jobs can become stressful from time to time, so getting away is a chance to reset, free your mind from worry and also de-stress.

In fact, there are a number o…

Why you will love a week in Tenerife

Recently I was invited on an amazing media trip to Tenerife by the RDO, to stay at Pearly Grey Ocean Club timeshare resort in Costa Adeje. The trip involved a week at the resort, and a host of exciting excursions. This was the view from my room!


While I have both holidayed and lived in Lanzarote on a number of occasions since 2012 and visited Fuerteventura and La Graciosa, I had not yet reached Tenerife. This all changed with an amazing week-long trip that I hope will inspire you to go!



While for many who have not yet experienced Tenerife, but have merely glanced at a typical photo, it might appear that all that's available is sun, sand, and sea. In other words, the typical beach holiday spent roasting in the sun and sipping cheap lager by the pool. Don't get me wrong, if that is what you are after then you can easily spend a week doing that.

If you are reading this post though, I'm sure you are more discerning than that and looking for a much more exciting time. Well, the good news is that Tenerife is so much more than beaches, even though you will find some incredible ones there.


The first thing you will likely notice about the island, especially if you have only previously been to some of the other Canary Islands such as Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, is how different it is to them in terms of landscape, size and the overall pace of life.

Tenerife has a population of over a million and in parts is very built up with a huge array of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs and other amenities such as theatres and cinemas. Tenerife is full of life and there is plenty to do from morning until night. A week will speed by with absolutely no chance of feeling bored!


There is some amazing beauty in Tenerife and an incredible diversity of landscape. Around the coast, there are of course stunningly beautiful sandy beaches with palm trees, blue skies and amazing views out to the Atlantic ocean.

As you travel inland through you will be struck by how green and verdant the island is. In the same way that the island is full of human activity, it is also full of natural life with an array of palm trees, cacti, and other plants.

As part of the #GoShareTenerife media trip, John and I were invited on a number of different exciting excursions by the companies that Pearly Grey works with. This meant we had a diverse week with many different experiences. This included:

Aqualand Costa Adeje:



Teide by Night Stargazing Experience:




Whale watching with Freebird One:



A visit to Teide Observatory:


Tenerife


Incredible Trekking Teide Experience:



This is just a selection of some of the amazing experiences I had in Tenerife and this was just during one single week of staying on the island. If you are planning a holiday to Tenerife, as you can see there is more than enough to do to fill a week-long stay there. In fact, a week is not enough so you'll either decide to extend your stay or start planning your next trip back as soon as you arrive home!
