I need a holiday. Not a holiday like I’ve had in the last weeks of me just staying at home. No, I need a proper holiday. Some other country, some other culture, discovering, exploring. With the new job and the money I’ll be able to actually go somewhere. I really do want to go to El Hierro.
I mean that is just beautiful…
“Set on the very edge of the Atlantic, the first man crossed the Island at Punta de Orchilla, marking the furthest point of the known world before the Europeans discovered America. This little island of only 287 square kilometres and an altitude of 1,501 metres, offers a landscape of great beauty, more than half of which is protected by the Natural Spaces Act. Spectacular cliffs of up to 1,200 metres high and twisted lava formations contrast sharply with the gentle rolling hills at its centre. The abundantly lush vegetation is another of El Hierro’s treasures.” Source
If I go spring next year (as spring time is the nicest time to go to the canary islands anyway), I should be able to rent a car and just drive around. Anyone fancy coming with me?
Another thing I want to do when I have a licence and car is to just drive somewhere in the UK. I’ve wanted to go to Cornwall for a while now and maybe somewhere up north or even Scotland.
Which reminds me I really need to apply for that provisional driving licence tomorrow. And before that get a picture taken.
