My eyes saw the
ocean scenery, saw the mountains, palms and cactuses, yet my

believe that I was on the Canary Islands. And no wonder! I haven’t had much
time to prepare myself emotionally for this vacation. That’s why looking at the
Tenerife landscape I felt like I was in a dream, a beautiful magical dream. It felt
surreal. And I was afraid that if I close my eyes even for a moment it will all

Usually when we are planning our holiday, we go through the hotel and apartment options given to us by the ebookers.com. And before ordering accommodation we always check reviews on TripAdvisor to avoid unpleasant surprises. Lesson learned, London, lesson learned! Anyways, if reviews are good or average, we book the place. I call it travel accommodation hunting. And just like any other hunting it is time-consuming, and it takes a lot of patience. Now, when you are buying a last-minute holiday package like we did on aurinkomatkat.fi, there is not much to choose from, and you just take what is offered. Sometimes it’s like buying a pig in a poke, or cat in a sack, if you will. And in our case, it was Vigilia Park Apartment hotel, located in Los Gigantes.
