Fascinating La Gomera (1)

Today I'll give you more information about inspiring Canaria Islands. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

We spent Saturday (12.30.2012) in La Gomera. It's one of the Canaria Islands only 30 minutes away from Tenerife. It's such a beautiful place!  The day inspired me so much that I decided to use La Gomera in my novel. 

Our bus picked us up about 7:40 AM. We drove to the harbor in Los Cristianos and continued the journey on a ship.

I'm wondering if that ship was Finnish.. 'Armas' is an old word that means 'darling' in Finnish.

When we arrived La Gomera, we walked around in San Sebastian, the capital of the island. It's also the  place where Columbus stayed before sailing to America. Here are few pictures from the town:

I love these colorful houses <3







From a church






Our guide told us that according a story Columbus visited this church, but it's likely that the church he really visited doesn't exist anymore.










They say that Columbus took water from this cave. No one is sure if it's true, though.


After San Sebastian we drove to the mountains.  






The palms and the roads! <3






Stopping by at a banana farm. Here we learned how to produce palm honey, for example.













I'd love to buy a house from there! 



I'll post more pictures from La Gomera soon!

  3. May I just say what a relief to uncover someone who really
    understands what they are discussing over the internet. You definitely understand how to
    bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people have
    to read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you're not more popular since you definitely have the gift.
