Yes, you may have noticed - no postings for a few days and that's because we have just come back from our short break over the New Year when we escaped to get some winter sun!
It was quite a shock coming back from the Playa La Arena Hotel in Tenerife, having been basking in 24C, to a very cold, snow and ice covered car (ice on the inside of the windscreen!) at the airport and -2C. The hotel was absolutely great, we've been back a few times now, and in particular we had an excellent New Years Eve gala dinner (first time for that).
Did manage to catch a cold somewhere between here and there and so as ever, when your system goes into relax mode, it raised its head and had me coughing and spluttering. But even this was tolerable when the sun is shining. However, it did mean that I couldn't get any dives in on this trip. Usually dive with the BSAC/PADI Los Gigantes dive centre that is excellent for hard-boat dives around the Gigantes area and if you get the chance to dive there then do get in touch with them. The underwater scenery is stunning and you can also dive and feed the Rays; quite a strange to have a whole range of sting and banjo ray swarming all over you!
