Canary islands diary part 2

IMG_0230a

I hope you enjoyed the pictures from my first Canary islands Diary post, because today I have the second part all prepped and ready for you! Most of the pictures in this post are from two places- Monkey park and a small village in the mountains Masca!
If you ever decide to go to Tenerife, I definitely recommend to go to the Monkey park as in this park you can actually walk around animals in their natural habitat! I loved seeing turtles & iguanas up very, very close & I definitely found the lemurs quite entertaining ( I was definitely waiting for them to burst out in the song: "I like to move it, move it"- the movie Madagascar surely influenced me a lot! :D )! And the second place you absolutely must visit is the small village of Masca- only 100 people live there! The village is located in the most beautiful place you could ever ask for! The views were truly breathtaking & as they were so amazing at the top, we actually decided to climb all the way down to the ocean! The trail is definitely very challenging as the trail consisted of only rocks and we had to overcome multiple scary obstacles and cross the small mountain river million times! The hike was 5.5 kilometers long and the descent was approximately 630 meters! We managed to get from the top to the bottom in 4 hours, but I have read that on average the hike takes approximately 3 hours, but we were a bit slower since my 7 years old niece was coming with us as well! I must say that the hike was really, really hard- my legs were totally killing me for almost the rest of the vacation, but it was so worth it & I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Es ceru, ka Jums patika pirmās Kanāriju salas bildes, kuras publicēju blogā pirms nedēļas, jo šodien man ir jau sagatavots otrais raksts par to kā tad man gāja Tenerifē! Lielākā daļa bilžu šajā rakstā tika uzņemtas divās vietās- Monkey parkā, kā arī mazā ciematiņā Tenerifes kalnos Maskā! Ja esi kādreiz nolēmis/usi doties uz Tenerifi, es pavisam noteikti ieteiktu apciemot Monkey parku- jo šajā mini zoodārzā ir iespēja aplūkot ļoti daudzus dzīvniekus to organiskajā dzīves vidē! Man ļoti patika izpētīt bruņurupučus un iguānas, kā arī pavisam noteikti mani sasmīdināja lemūri ( kuru katru brīdi gaidīju, ka tie sāks dziedāt: "I like to move it, move it"- laikam Madagaskaras filma mani slikti ietekmēja! :D )
Un otrā vieta, kas ir obligāti jāredz, ir Maskas ciematiņš, kurā, starp citu, dzīvo tikai 100 iedzīvotāji! Pats ciematiņš ir novietots salīdzinoši augstu kalnos, tiešām ļoti pasakainā vietā, iespējams, skaistākajā vietā, kuru es jebkad esmu redzējusi! Panorāmas skati bija patiešām neaptverami un tā kā mēs bijām sajūsmināti esot tikai pašā augšā, mēs nolēmām doties pārgājienā no paša ciemata, līdz pat lejai, jeb okeānam! Pārgājiens bija apmēram 5.5 km garš, visu laiku ir jālēkā pār akmeņiem, jāpārvar dažādi šķēršļi un ļoti daudzas reizes jāršķērso mazā kalnu upīte! Kopumā mēs gājām 4 stundas, bet cik es lasīju Internetā, tad vidēji šis pārgājiens prasa 3 stundas, bet mēs bijām nedaudz lēnāki, jo mēs ņēmām līdzi arī manu septiņgadīgo brāļa meitiņu! Godīgi sakot, man šis pārgājiens likās pat ļoti grūts un kājas par sevi lika manīt gandrīz visu atlikušo ceļojuma laiku, bet viennozīmīgi tas bija tā vērts un, ja man būtu tāda iespēja es šo ceļu mērotu vēlreiz nepamirkšķinot pat aci!

This is how most of the trail looked like & how challenging at times it was / šajā bildē var redzēt to kā mēs gājām lielāko daļu ceļu un cik grūti tas dažreiz bija!
