Our first week in Tenerife was spent on the Island La Gomera.
We based ourselves in San Sebastian, a quiet non touristy town but perfect for the day walking we wanted to do and meant we could do a section of the GR132 and the GR131
The walking trails were very wild barren and peaceful with the most amazing views and huge Cacti growing along the paths,every now and again we would get a tantalising peek of Mount Teide in the distance, the weather was hot sunny and wonderful making it perfect !!
One day we did catch the bus over to the very touristy Valley Gran Rey where we enjoyed a great walk but was more than happy to be going back to San sebastian.
We found a great restaurant that served good food and the most amazing locally grown avocado’s , interestingly the guy that served us, Cristofer Clemente was a trail runner who had won many marathons including the 2014 Scafell Pike Trail Marathon.
Before we left I had to have a run along the sea front but after a mile my achilles started to complain 🙁 so more rest was needed.
We left la Gomera on the early ferry feeling excited about part two of our holiday not quite realising the best was yet to come and how amazing it would be !!!
