Tenerife 2016: Hiking in Anaga mountains

If someone would ask me what is my favorite place in Tenerife, I’d answer without much hesitation – Anaga mountains. They are surrounded by ocean, they are green and wild in many places, they have so fascinating shapes.

St. Stephen’s Day hiking

Finland will never be the same. In the night before the Christmas Eve I found myself queuing in Prisma (a huge hypermarket, the first one in the country to be open 24 hours). I thought that I will be the only night own / foreigner / agnostic there, but actually the queue was quite long.

And on the Christmas Eve I cycled to the church and after that went back home through the center. I was hungry and here it was – a truck with burgers, standing near the Central Railway station. On Christmas Eve, at 0:15 I had a tasty vege burger and a friendly customer service. Something like this would be impossible to imagine even 5 years ago.

I’m content with this Christmas also because I went hiking 2 days out of 3. On Sunday it was night hiking with torches (and testing new route near Saunakallio!), but today it was during the sunlight and I decided to take the camera with me. I didn’t have any expectations as the days are mostly gray this time of the year, but the nature turned out to be at its best today.

An autumn trip to Aulanko

This year the autumn depression hit me much harder than usual (most of the recent years I didn’t have any depression at all). I spent a couple of weekends doing nothing (which means for me installing a new fork to the bicycle, small MTB rides around home, housekeeping, cooking, reading, talking and so on). Well, I spent a couple of really counter-productive nights as well, playing Cities in Motion 2.

After all this misery I said “enough!”, woke up at 7:30, woke Elena and we ran for the train. It was beginning of a very nice Sunday.
