Tenerife is one of the Canaria Islands and it's surrounded by Atlantic Ocean. The nearest islands are La Gomera (in the west from Tenerife) and Cran Canaria (in the east from Tenerife). Tenerife's area is 2032 square kilometers and it's population is about 900 000 people. All the Canaria Islands belong to Spain, but they have autonomy and own president.
The flight from Helsinki to Tenerife took about six hours. We landed Reina Sophia airport on Thursday December 27 and arrived our hotel about an hour after the landing. The journey to Playa de las Americas took only 15 minutes, but we had to stop many hotels before we got out of the bus.

Playa de las Americas is a small town on the South coast of Tenerife. It's one of the newest resorts in Tenerife and it's very popular - you can see hotels everywhere. I'll tell you more about las Americas soon.
Here's two pictures of a very beautiful sunset that made me think of the romantic parts of the Tenerife chapters. They are taken from a restaurant we ate on Thursday.
