The quieter Canaries: piece for The Times

I write a lot about the Canary Islands, and am always banging on about how misunderstood these perpetually sunny islands are.

One thing I rarely get to do though is to write about the smaller islands, those that most visitors to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are not even aware make up part of the same archipelago.

So I’m delighted to have been able to write about La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro for The Times. My article on these three largely unknown isles was in the travel section on Saturday February 13th. If you missed it, you can read it on the website here.

tropical valleys await…. Read it here.

Thanks to the fabulous Macs Adventure for hosting this trip. Check out the itinerary I joined, Island of Contrasts, here.
