I'll admit it, November, is not the best month out there, but it's my b-day and so I decided to always make the best out of it. On top of this, In Belgium my b-day falls on a bank holiday....sooooo it's a day off for a lot of my friends. When thinking where to go next, I thought about the grey Belgian sky in November and ... any place out there rather easy to reach which has chances of some sunlight ... and TADA...Tenerife it was :)
With its 3,718-meters, the volcano is the highest point of Spain (including mainland) but for me this is not the most impressive part of the volcano, but the fact that it is the best spot for stargazing in Europe.
With winding roads and the ocean on your right, this is one dreamy roadtrip!
Very possible I did not get to the right places, but I must say that I was not impressed by the beach offer of Tenerife (please don't shoot me).
We had to stop in Santa Cruz de Tenerife to have a look at the auditorium which was designed by the same architect as the train station in Liege, Belgium.
"The city was the ancient capital of the Canary Islands. La Laguna lies right alongside the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, thus the two cities and municipalities form a single large urban center, linked by tram. La Laguna's historical center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999." (Source)
Although our past few days were wonderful when it comes with discovering an amazing Spain, the weather was not our best friend all the time, the moment came to explore the beach & the sun a little bit.
"In northern Spain you will find the immortal city of Zaragoza, a welcoming, dynamic metropolis that has borne witness to more than 2,000 years of history." (Source)
After my first trip back in 2014, I had to come back to this wonderful area, not only for the wine and food but also for the wonderful villages you can visit around. The story will be based on the trip now and will add where relevant links to my previous trip.
As I was telling you before, we tried to stay in a city for more days and have that used for travelling around, it is finally time for Oviedo, a town that left a super positive impression to all of us. Have a look of how we spent our 2 nights here.
