Another FUNtastic day spent hiking with my love and taking snapshots on iPhone (all photos presented here), walking around 14 km with the crazy altitude between 0 and 1 km above sea level… Ah, why can’t we do it all day every day?! :)
The itinerary: left car at/ started walking from Playa Benijo – El Draguillo – Punta Baja de las Palmas to Roque de Dentro (Roques de Anaga, Las Brenas) and all the way back with a short but very much needed pause at the beach with some coffee & munchies that we prepared beforehand. Again, when it’s too hot everywhere in the world (except Russia only, perhaps?!)), head to the North and stay cool ;)
See the little piece of rock on the top right corner? THat’s our rock that we’ve walked to!
In the beginning you think it couldn’t be any easier than this..)
..and we take lotsa pics
Playa Benijo left behind as well as the feeling that it’s not gonna be too difficult (in fact it is not, Im just way unprepared / unexperienced with mountain walks…)
Sort of middle of the way at El Draguillo village
Literally few houses of El Draguillo village, and the road divides in two: one to Chamorga (see the post here), another one to our destination point at Roques de Anaga
This is where
I started shitting myself from heights the road gets higher, wilder and narrower with breathtaking views down at the coast and the ocean’s distant roar…
Btw, we were super lucky with the lighting conditions and weather: windy and cloudy, perfect for a hard walk!
OK, this was an almost Fake Thumbs-Up moment, lol (I felt like i was gonna die any minute from a heart attack, if too lucky…)
More real one
We are always lucky with the friends along the way :)
Apathetic donkey Perico, very friendly local Francisco, scary but super friendly doggy Husan and the love of my life Eduardovski :)
His majesty Roque de Dentro :) Beautiful and lonely, we’ll have to get back there to walk in a low tide to discover him better!
One of the last pictures on the way back. Surprisingly, it was much faster and less scarier :)
Thank you, mother Nature, we’ll be back! =)
