Smile Freki presents La Gomera

Hi guys...

The GF and I spend last week on the Canary Islands.. more specifically La Gomera and Tenerife..

The weather was nice, the water warm and the people friendly.. and all in all it was a blast that was over way too soon...

Anyways you guys know the drill, so here are some pics from:

La Gomera

It's a small island with ~22.000 people and no airport so transportation there is still by boat.. it's very lush compared to most of the other Canary Islands and is probable the least developed of them - but that is certainly part of it's charm - if you like nature and hiking this is probable the place for you, I certainly look forward to spending more time on this charming little island..

La Gomera from the plane to Tenerife..


The Norwegian 'Fred Olsen' ferry that takes you to/from La Gomera


San Sebastian ( largest city on the island )










The island is littered in small villages like this one..


Teide ( 3,7km tall ) in the distance ( located on the nearby island of Tenerife )




Garanojay National Park


















Back at San Sebastian

Very nice. I was unaware this all existed, it almost looks like Hawai'i in a way.

A coincidence because I read an article about La Gomera earlier today, it said it is more exotic then the rest of Gran Canaria.
