Filofax Travel: Tenerife

Filofax Travel

After submitting a photo of my pink Breast Cancer Campaign personal Filofax to the “How well travelled is your Filofax?” competition on Facebook, I decided to start a new series on my blog called Filofax Travel.

My aim is to take a photo of my Filofax whenever I travel somewhere and tell you a little bit about the place.

Mount Teide of Tenerife

Filofax Travel

I’ve recently returned from the Canary Island of Tenerife, part of Spain and home to the 3rd largest volcano in the World. Standing tall at 3,718 metres high, Mount Teide or Pico del Teide is the highest point in the whole of Spain. Currently dormant, the last eruption on Mt. Teide was in 1909.

My BF and I stayed in a charming mountain lodge hotel called Parador de Cañadas del Teide, which had such amazing views of the volcano peak. Sunset was unreal, as the sunbeams shot up from behind Roque Cinchado. Later on that evening we attended a stargazing meet, where all the hotel lights were turned off, it was as if someone popped a bag of glitter in the sky! Stay tuned for more of my travel posts and future Filofax Travel posts. :)

Fridge Probs and Travel Diary

Hi cute geeks, did you miss me? I’ve just returned from a fantastic trip to the island of Tenerife, which I will be posting about in the next few days. Despite taking all of my gadgets on holiday, I took some time away from my networks and really enjoyed spending time exploring the island with my BF.

Volcano geeks standby, because I will tell you all about our trip to Mt.Teide, stargazing and what it’s like to stay in a hotel up a volcano! Not forgetting the fun day out to Loro Parque, eating fresh seafood at Garachico and making friends with the local cats.

My trusty battered blog ideas book was where I was old school blogging every day and my pink Filofax for short notes. I can’t wait to share my travel diary and of course my favourite photos of Tenerife with you! There are a couple of pics on my instagram you can see.

It’s hard to get holiday blues when home is just a hop skip and jump (a boat ride) away but I still had to do all the usual post holiday washing, putting the suitcases away and so on.

Anyway, while we were away our beloved icy fridge decided to call it a day. I’m no fridge expert, but it looks like the house got too hot, and the fridge just said ‘Aw hell no!’.

Although I got up early (and learned how to type again – a week away from my iMac eek!), I’ve been doing laundry and trying to repair the fridge for most of the day. Turns out it’s probably the thermostat.

This is just a little update really, travel posts on their way! :)

Have you been on holiday this year? Anywhere nice?

Disney Pixar Movie Lava

You could say I have a slight crazy obsession with anything and everything volcanic. Despite being lucky enough to live on a volcanic island, I dream to one day visit Iceland and Hawaii.

Before my blog exploded (not in a good way) I wrote about the time I visited the volcanos of La Palma. That was an experience I will NEVER forget. We drove up to Roque de los Muchachos, saw the telescopes and then did a short hike up a very steep pathway into Caldera de Taburiente. In fact, I think I will write it up again or see if I can salvage some of my old post.

Anyway, when I saw this clip for the Disney Pixar movie Lava, I just had to share it with you!

I’ve watched it several times and Uku the singing volcano gives me chills each time, he is so freaking adorable. He just wants somebody to ‘lava’. Awww ^_^

Lava will be played as a short ahead of Disney Pixar’s Inside Out in cinemas from June 2015.

Very soon I will be travelling to the top of another volcano, here’s a clue ‘It’s the highest point in Spain’. Yes, that’s all I’m saying for now but I can’t wait to tell you all about it. :)

Are you a fan of volcanos? What is your favourite volcano movie?
