    Purely from a security point of view, I think you can't beat a palm tree that's being watched by an entire forum.

    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.

    If you have the skills to live cheaply, and the right personality to get to know people quickly and win their confidence, 2k might be enough. Just put aside some money for a flight back home in case...
  6. Re: moving to tenerife

    Just save up enough that you can live for 6 months, then come out and see what work you can find. Some young people manage to come to Tenerife without any money and it turns out well, but you can't...
  7. Re: moving to tenerife

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

    The city of Santa Cruz is primarily Spanish-speaking, and you would really need fluent Spanish if you plan on...

    Masca Gorge is absolutely spectacular, although it's not for everyone. About 70% of the walk is straightforward; about 15% is along high paths with a drop off to one side (but no problem if you're...

    Hi Joey,

    Playa San Juan is a pleasant place, and it's certainly quiet. It has good bus connections to the main bus station as well as to Los Gigantes, Adeje, etc. For Loro Parque you will need to...
  10. Re: Bringing up kids in Tenerife. Opportunity/Sheltered or a Good start in life?

    How sad! The homeschooled children that I know in England are all well-adjusted, happy, capable kids.
  11. Re: Bringing up kids in Tenerife. Opportunity/Sheltered or a Good start in life?

    Home schooling is great because the children get so much more social interaction. Being sat in rows in a classroom is not social interaction.

    There are great opportunities for those who grow up in...

    Re: Are you a geek

    I got all eight of those questions right! I'm assuming that you're looking for "1.0" as the answer to question 3, although in some countries I think it was not released until 1.02.

    To address the original question, Tenerife must be one of the hardest countries to be a self-sufficient farmer. The soil is fertile but it's hard as hell to work it, and (depending where you are)...
  17. Re: Anyone recommend a weekend break in north Tenerife?

    As a hotel, La Quinta Park suites is great, and there is a wide range of accommodation to choose from ranging from rooms to 2-bed apartments to "bungalows".

    Beautiful plaza at the far end of town too, with the rotating sculptures. And the beautiful natural rock pools a mile east of town. I haven't ever been there at night though.

    Re: The meridian isle of El Hierro.

    When the volcano was steaming away last year, it's a pity the government said "stay away". Instead, they should have said "why not come here to see all the funny vulcanologists".

    Re: The Meridian Isle of El Hierro.

    Nice photos, but do the island's inhabitants really want more tourists? I thought they might quite appreciate living on the island least spoiled by mass tourism.
  21. Re: Locals please help...I need somewhere to stay

    This is probably not the solution you are seeking, but possibly your original hotel has a wheelchair-friendly toilet elsewhere on the complex (e.g. in the lobby) which you could use. Not ideal, I...
  22. Cycling Re: Any good OFF road cycling with kids?

    In the pine forests there are LOTS of dirt roads that run mostly horizontally rather than up/down the slope. The best of these are in the north, in the area roughly from Santiago del Teide to Icod el...
