Mini trip to El Hierro

My friend and I celebrate our birthday on the same day 13th January this year we decided to celebrate it in El Hierro.

El Hierro is the second smallest Canary Island. La Graciosa being the smallest.

As residents we get a 75 percent discount on travel, we traveled with Canaryfly from the North airport, it cost us 15 euros return each, a bargain.

I booked the accommodation through Booking.com. A lovely 2 bedroom apartment.

A young couple greeted us on arrival, and showed us around apartment when she gave me an electric blanket I was a bit baffled.

After a few hours there we realised that it was a lot colder than Tenerife

Being in El Hierro is like stepping back in time, a lovely friendly community of people who dont speak english which was good as we got to practice our spanish. They are self sufficient, a lot of farms or plots with veg and chickens and goats.

We stayed in Mocanal which was lovely quaint tiny village, with a bakery where you could go and buy fresh bread or croissants for breakfast.

The local bar was great fun , everybody so friendly and we tried our best with our spanish. Local wine 80 cents a glass.

Local bus service was good and cost 1.35 a trip.
