Walk on the wild side.

WoW! Just done something I have been wanting to do for ages, but have been putting it off. We have lived in Tenerife for 8 years and have a few hills behind our apartment, I have seen people walking over the hills and wondered what was up there, but have never ventured up until today. There are a few reasons why I wanted to give it a go. (1) I was curious to what the views would be like, (2) I wondered if I was fit enough to climb up the hill and (3) it is good exercise.
I am glad I wore my trainers, because the terrain was rocky and there was a lot of shingle, with no real path, but I did manage it,a bit slippy on the way down though.
I practically live in flip-flops, in fact I do not own any shoes only sandals and of course my trainers.You don’t need much else here, well unless you want to climb hills.
I must say I really enjoyed the walk/climb, it was very quiet up the top, not even any birds singing, unlike Scotland.
No wild life visible, I heard plenty of lizards running for cover, too fast to take pictures.
The views were spectacular, I could see Los Critianos to the left and La Caleta to the right, and behind me there were banana plantations and more hills.
