The next adventure is afoot!
In a couple of days I’ll be jumping on a plane to the Balearic Island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean to hike the GR221 Drystone route up the crest of the Taramuntana Mountains. After a quick visit to Barcelona, another plane will bring me to Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Over the next few weeks I plan to follow my heart, exploring by ferry and foot the Hawaii of the Atlantic. This will probably include backpacking all, some, or most of the trans-island GR131 on Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma, and Gran Canaria in addition to circumnavigating La Gomera on the GR132. That’s the tentative plan at least. I have the maps and wise words of other travellers, but this journey will be my own. I humbly enter nature’s arena, open to whatever may be.
The spring weather should be fine. The terrain varied and stunning. If I manage to dodge the beer binging tourists, there will be more hiking than I have days for. I’m excited to get some miles on these legs again. Ready to earn my sock tan.
Daily posts will show up here sometime. My current location will be trackable on the Where Am I? page.
I hope you have adventures of your own on the horizon. May the people you meet and the things you find lead to many more. Happy spring. Happy trails.
