Tenerife - December 2010 & December 2011

In 2010 we decided to have Christmas in Tenerife and thoroughly enjoyed it. So in 2011 we returned for the run-up to Christmas. Possibly our best holiday there yet - excellent room, excellent food, excellent weather and some excellent walking - what more could you ask for? The photos in this gallery are a composite from both holidays.
