Hola! Bird song melodies. Blue, blue, blue water and sky. Icy waves. Trickling streams. Rolling stones. Crashing and tumbling with the tide. Amazing views. Majestic mountains and rocks. Volcanic origin. ‘Millions’ of hiking trails. Hiking in the Garajonay National Park. Frolicking dolphins. Lonely turtle. Freedom on a boat. Smell of the sea. Jumping off the boat for a swim. Fresh seafood. Divine vino (wine). Happy speaking Spanish. Cool swims. Tiny villages. Fertile valleys. Palm trees and honey. Spring blossoms of every colour. Buzzing bees. Views to Tenerife, El Hierro and La Palma. Pilgrimage sites. Lots of churches. Refreshing waterfalls. Beach kitties. Village kitties. Street kitties. More kitties all over. Green lush forest.

We travelled to La Gomera (one of seven islands in the Canaries) in April 2014. If you visit, donโ€™t miss out on the opportunity to hike! There are so many well-marked hiking trails throughout. Next time I would love to take another boat trip in the hopes of spotting a whale.

Travel impressions is a trip down memory lane recalling sights, sounds, tastes, smells, textures and feelings. If I close my eyes, travel impressions can transport me back there.

Take a walk with me and share the moments.

If you close your eyes, can you sense La Gomera?

simply sharing, Delicia x

  1. Hi mdssD

    Thank you for painting such a beautiful canvas, La Gomera sounds just wonderful. Thank you for taking me along with you and sharing your adventure.

    Love always

    • Hi mdssGilli,

      That’s just a beautiful way to describe La Gomera, it really was a beautiful canvas!!

      It makes me so happy to have you join me on my journeys. I am grateful that you are travelling along.

      Love lots x

  2. Oh yes, I can sense La Gomera! ๐Ÿ™‚ The beautiful photos show wonderful places. But I love your words and the silence between one and the other. There I feel how the moment became eternity. Really amazing brushstrokes ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love water, I love blue, I love mountains, I love food, I love kitties. So I cannot say which photo I like most, but the last one of Ermita San Isidro really gives magic space to the feelings and perfectly holds all those moments.
    I am grateful you took us along with you on such a beautiful journey. I did enjoy all of it as if I was there! Thank you. Namaste.

    • Gratitude for joining me on the journey! So happy you could sense it too. The sardines were really yummy, as was all the fresh seafood and fish. And there were so many cats around all the time. That was a real highlight for me, especially as I miss Max so very much.

  3. Thank you for sharing this trip. Your pictures are beautiful and have a very relaxing effect… I am sorry I have been away from your blog so long… I am still dealing in many ways with my handbag theft… Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.

    • I am so happy you find them relaxing! My thoughts are with you as you continue to deal with your experience and find your way through it. Sending you love, light and healing to support you on your journey. Happy week Steph!
