Photo running challenge // Беговые заметки натуралиста

Today’s running path was in the mountains of La Esperanza close to Las Lugunetas (map). To say it was beautiful is to say nothing. This path starts in the forest and goes uphill for ca. 4km, then to somewhat looking like a flat area with fantastic opening views from the top; around the top and back down to the other part of the forest.

Literally every 3-5 minutes landscapes are changing their sceneries, colours and ‘decoration’ details, so that it is nearly impossible to run by without stopping (and catching a breath, lol).

trail running

running, happy, fun

We’ve seen quite a few cyclists passing by, but no other runners than ourselves. And – which was rather pleasing! – no cars at all as the way is too unprotected and narrow at times. Perfect for trekkers, in other words!! :)

El Hierro // El Hierro

Girl Life in Tenerife is definitely moving around. Few days ago Olga has visited the stunning island of El Hierro, and shared some of the photos she took with her mobile. So beautiful. Breathtaking… We’ll have to upload more photos & description with the time, as soon as we’ll visit it again. Meantime, please take a moment and have a look at these few shots from Olga, and also read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Hierro  (or, en Español): https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Hierro .

Наш блог однозначно расправляет крылья в направлении других Канарских островов. Пару дней назад Оля съездила на потрясающе красивый, завораживающий “крохотный” Эль Йерро (самый маленький из всех Канарских островов, однако вовсе не скучный или однообразный из-за своей крохотности!), и поделилась несколькими фото из своего телефона. Необыкновенно красивый и захватывающий дух. Мы обязательно добавим больше фото и описания как только посетим его снова, а пока вот только немного фото из Олиного архива.

Although wasn’t too much km’s, yet it felt like double distance due to umpteen [bastard] hills ;) // Несмотря на небольшую дистанцию, ощущалось как будто вдвойне из-за вечных холмов вверх-вниз…

Part 2 to be coming soon! All photos are ready just need to upload them, add titles and publish :) // Вторая часть будет скоро: все фото готовы, осталось только загрузить, дать описание и опубликовать! :)
