We travelled to La Gomera (one of seven islands in the Canaries) in April 2014. If you visit, don’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?
