TENERIFE DAY 3: EL TEIDE

29/12/2016

Third day on Tenerife. Our second day we spent completely in Siam water park. 

Full day of fun and laugh. How strange it was jumping around in swimsuits and listening to Christmas songs playing in the background. On Sunday we wanted to visit the El Teide Volcano but unfortunately the cable car that leads almost to the top was closed that day because of the ice on the top. But the nature and the road that leads to the volcano is spectacular. Road full of amazing view points over the valley. We went down on the other side of the volcano which means we came almost to the Puerto de la Cruz city, but instead of driving straight into the city we stopped in a small town kilometers before called La Orotava. A beautiful colorful small town in which we stopped to check the Jardin Victoria gardens. Sadly we didnt have great sunny weather to fully enjoy the experience but the gardens are beautiful. On our way back to Costa Adeje we went on the sea side crossing Masca again. A winding narrow road over hills. It is actually a very famous road and some people go there just to see it. We crossed it twice already by our third day there. It is really narrow and on some turnes you have troubles when meeting other cars, buses even. The cute food place you see on the photos is Hariet´s. An amazing coffee shop in Costa Adeje. I am guessing its owned by english family since everyone there speaks a perfect fluent british english. Their cakes are to die for. I was having an coffee pecans one. Delicious. 

Tretji dan na Tenerifih. Drugi dan smo v celoti preživeli v Siam vodnem parku. Smeh in norenje. Smešno je tekati okoli v kopalkah decembra in hkrati v ozadju poslušati božične pesmi. V nedeljo smo želeli obiskati najvišjo točko otoka, El Teide vulkan, vendar pa se zaradi ledu na zajli nismo mogli z gondolo povzpeti skoraj do vrha. Narava in cesta, ki vodi po nacionalnem parku je naravnost čudovita. Cesta polna razglednih točk po dolini. Od vulkana smo se proti dolini spuščali po drugi strani tako, da smo se spustili skoraj do mesta Puerto de la Cruz, vendar pa smo le par kilometrov pred mestom ustavili v manjšem mestecu, La Orotava. Majhno, domače in barvito mestece v katerem smo se ustavili predvsem zato, da bi si ogledali Jardin Victorijine vrtove. Na žalost nismo imeli popolnega sončnega vremena, da bi lahko popolnoma uživali v izkušnji, vendar vrtovi so čudoviti. Na naši poti nazaj smo se peljali po obalni strani vse do ponovnega prečkanja Masce. Do tega dneva smo jo prečkali že dvakrat. Čudovita ozka cesta, ki vodi čez hrib. Na nekaterih ovinkih smo imeli kar nekaj težav pri srečanju z ostalimi vozili in pa tudi avtobusi, saj je cesta res ozka. Restavracija, ki je videna na nekaterih fotografijah je prikupen majhen lokal, Harriet´s. Gostoljuben lokal, ki mora po ugibanjih sodeč biti v lasti angležev, saj vsi govorijo lepo in tekočo britansko angleščino. Njihove torte so noro dobre, še posebej kavno orehova, ki sem jo imela jaz.
