Today I wanted to share some pictures I took while in Tenerife. While I didn't do a whole lot of sightseeing (I did grow up there), I did manage to revisit some of my favourite places. Especially, Loro Parque, which I have mentioned before, is an amazing zoo. When I was younger I had the annual card and together with my Dad, we would go almost every weekend, so it brought back some great memories. As you may know, I am not the biggest fan of zoos, and there are some animals, like the Orcas who simply could never have enough space to stay in captivation. However, I do strongly believe the animals are very well taken care of, they have beautiful enclosures, most with running water. The workers hide most of their food so as to keep them entertained and stimulated searching for it/digging it out. I have visited other zoos, and so far none have compared even close. You can read more about Loro Parque Fundación here if you are interested.

As you may have noticed from the above pictures, Tenerife has black beaches, with the exception of a couple on the island which have imported sand from the Sahara Desert. This is due to it being a volcanic island. I love the contrast of beach and mountains, the best of both worlds if you ask me.

This week I have been back in Austria, and while the last few days I seem to have come down with a virus, it seems to be slowly getting better. Can't get enough of catching up on youtube videos and my favourite series. Caught up on Pretty Little Liars last week and can't wait for it to resume. I am also in the process of catching up on Suits, another big favourite. What are your favourites series?
