To start off, I am NOT IN ALGHERO. I changed my flights and decided to not go to Italy, but Spain.
My plan was actually to walk around and backpack a bit, but that seemed impossible after I managed day 1 and 2.
I arrived in Tenerife at 11:30 pm and went to Santa Cruz (up north) by bus.
In Santa Cruz I got a total culture shock, realized that I was on my own and that I would have to manage how to get somewhere to sleep.
After walking around for 2 hours I went into a huuuuge 5 stories Supermercado (supermarket) and was super happy. :D Everything smelled like fruits in there and it was nice and cold. After walking around for another 2 hours, I took the bus to El Bailadero, because I saw (on my GPS) that there was a hostel up in the mountains.
From the little bus stop in El Bailadero, I walked a quarter mile up the mountain and arrived at the hostel that was - CLOSED. I was almost crying, but I laughed, cause that just simply could not be possible. I turned around to think about what I was going to do next, because the bus I took was the last one for the day. Surprisingly someone opened the door and asked me if I wanted to stay in the hostel for the night. I WAS SO FRICKING HAPPY, seriously. I paid 14€ for the night and had a room for 6 for myself.
I cried a lot that night, after calling my dad, cause I realized camping aint gonna happen in Tenerife.
The next day I left @ 10 am in the morning. I walked 3 miles down the mountains and then 7 back up to get to Taganana. The way to Taganana was a bit scary sometimes, because the road is really tiny and big busses were driving both ways. All vehicles have to honk before they drive around a curve to warn people ahead.
In Taganana I walked around for 5 minutes, and then desperatly waited for a bus to take me back to Santa Cruz from where I wanted to get to El Medano, because AGAIN ON MY GPS I found a campground between El Medano and Los Abrigos.
After all that happened and after I arrived at the campground I was happy to have a place for the next 3 days.
Day 3: It was sunday and because I knew most shops and basically cities were closed, I decided to walk to El Medano. The walk is always nice, but seems like a 2 mile walk across the desert.
To get to El Medano by feet, you have to walk around the Montaña Roja and then along the beaches. I found a couple Internet Cafés and chose the cheapest one. (The guy who works here is really nice.)
I browsed around a little and stared at the ocean and at all the wind surfers here, because El Medano is best beach in Tenerife to surf at. :-)
Day 4: FUCKING LA CUCARACHA (cockroach) in my tent! Noooo! I woke up, tried to find my watch to see how late it is and all I saw was a cucaracha in my tent! After 15 minutes of fighting, I won.
I went to El Medano again and tried to find out stuff about my flight back and trips I could do. I wanted to go to my beach in Las Tejitas, but that day swimming was forbidden. (If theres a red flag up, you are not allowed to go into that water), but I already thought that, because the waves were really tough. I went back to the campground and sat on a bench for 2 hours after showering.
Day 5: I woke up early to catch the bus to Los Christianos. From there, I took the Bus to Las Cañadas del Teide (to the National Park around the Teide Volcano/Mountain). There, I wandered for 6 hours across the National Park and it was the best day I had so far! Super Amazing weather and everything. I drank 4 litrles water in those 6 hours, because I forced myself to drinking a lot. I met a guy from the States and talked to him a lot. It was super nice to finally meet someone to talk to! :)
Day 6: Well, that is today! After waking up, I packed some stuff and walked to the beach (Las Tejitas). The waves were awesome and it was so good to well, not swim, but dive through the waves.
Thats all I did so far. Lay on the beach, swim, lay on the beach, swim.. fy!
And sorry if most of this is not understandable and English worse than whatever, but I don`t have that much time to re-read and correct.
