    Re: Queso Blanco de Cabra

    I've never found a goat's cheese in the UK which is anything like Tenerife's queso blanco.

    My lunch when out hiking in the mountains is inevitably "un bocadillo para llevar, de queso blanco con...

    Re: Is a property boom iminent in tenerife

    If you take out all of your pension at once, your "income" for that year will take you into the 40% tax bracket. So for most people it makes much more sense to take out a smaller amount each year for...

    What about installing a simple push-button power switch which supplies power for a set time then automatically switches off?

    Something like this one:...
  5. Re: Husband & wife team looking to relocate to Tenerife

    There is one exception. If she speaks fluent German and is willing to work in the parts of Puerto de la Cruz that are popular with Germans, she can get a hotel job without fluent Spanish.

    Re: The 3 Kings were everywhere!

    I was passing through Garachico on Tuesday 6th and they had a very active celebration in the upper part (Calle Alcade de Perlaza). Probably not the three kings as such, since that's usually on the...

    Advice wanted Re: What's the best thing about Tenerife?

    Well it's not "total" junk because you can at least get an unadulterated salad there.

    But my original message wasn't posted to praise McDonald's; it was saying how great it is that you can get a...

    Advice wanted Re: What's the best thing about Tenerife?

    For sure. Better, cheaper beer elsewhere.

    But sometimes with a group of kids you need somewhere that will have something to suit each of them. This is not always the case at "random unknown bar in...

    A great thing about Tenerife is that when you take the kids to McDonalds, you can buy beer there!

    Those pictures really are pathetic!

    I never let the lady take my picture. She is always very insistent, but I have discovered a trick. All you need to do is say the magic words: "ida solo".

    The altitude is half the problem, plus the fact that there are 18 bunks per room. But there's always one person who sleeps solidly, and it's inevitably the guy who snores loudly all night.

    Yes, it's about an hour's walk down from the top of the cable car to the Refugio. The position of the Refugio was determined by the availability of water. Most of the people who stay there will have...
  13. Re: New Year's Eve in Tenerife - What are you planning to do?

    I will be in the plaza at Puerto de la Cruz this year. In previous years I've seen the new year in from the plazas of Santa Cruz and Los Gigantes, and watched the coastal fireworks at a distance from...

    Other Re: Climbing Mount Teide peak

    The Teide summit is guarded whenever the cable car is operating, which includes New Year's Day. The only way to do it when it's not guarded is to stay at the Refugio Altavista, then climb the last...
  15. Re: Stay overnight in the Museum of Science and the Cosmos!

    Thanks KirstyJay. It sounds like a blast.

    My kids are teenagers now, so I might need to borrow some younger ones :)

    Or wait until they offer this event for adults.

    Roger.
  16. Re: Stay overnight in the Museum of Science and the Cosmos!

    I love the 3-D Mars room in that museum. That's where I'd choose to sleep.

    Um, where DO you actually sleep? Amongst all the exhibits?

    Naah, Lancaster is alright, and the Lancaster water and beer tastes good too. If it were that boring, I'd have been the one watching lamp-posts on the Los Cristianos webcam.

    Tenerife is a wonderful island. Just watch out for the tax on uppercase letters.
