eh oui, j’adore les îles volcaniques… 🙂 après l’Islande le mois dernier, hola desde La Palma de las Canarias aka “isla verde bonita”! j’ai déjà visité les 4 îles principales: Tenerife, Grand Canaria, Lanzarote et Fuerteventura, voici une “Canarita” qui englobe à elle seule les caractéristiques des ses “grandes sœurs”… des journées bien-remplies de visites-découvertes et randonnées, du coup, pas le temps de trier mes photos… amitiés canariennes et à bientôt! 🙂

well, yeah, I love volcanic islands… 🙂 after Iceland last month, hola desde La Palma de las Canarias aka “isla verde bonita”(beautiful green island)! I’ve already visited the 4 main Canary islands: Tenerife, Grand Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, this time, here’s a “Canarita”(small Canary island!) which includes in itself the characteristics of its “big sisters”… well-filled days of new discoveries and hiking, hence, no time to sort my photos… Canary greetings and see you asap! 🙂

  1. Merci de nous faire voyager Mélanie dans les îles volcaniques mes enfants sont allés l’un en Islande, l’autre aux îles Canaries cette année ils ont aussi beaucoup aimé. Bonne semaine! Bises!

  2. Lors de mon voyage aux Canaries, j’ai visité Lanzarote. C’est un décor très étrange. Bonne soirée, Mo

  3. merci pour ce retour au presque bercail! bisous!

  4. Living on the edge of the Cascades, I am a big fan of volcanos myself, Melanie, as long as they behave themselves. 🙂 I flew over Mt. St. Helens right after it blew its top. The devastation was amazing. Thanks for the trip to the Canaries. Looking forward to more. –Curt

    • you’re welcome, Sir! 🙂 La Palma is a small Canary island, but if you’re interested in the 4 main islands, please enter @ “search”: Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria or Fuerteventura…

  5. the only volcano I have climbed is la soufriere on Guadeloupe and my most outstanding memory is that for three weeks, day and night, sunshine and rain we had never experienced even a moment of silence from bird calls until we neared the summit of the volcano. There we heard absolutely ZERO bird or animal sounds until we headed back down the mountain. Really a stunning moment when we realized that.

    • wow, interesting story, Peter… we’ve visited and “experienced” volcanoes in Japan, Hawaii, Iceland and the Canary islands, naturalmente… les Antilles françaises are on our list after we retire! 🙂

      • You clearly have a ‘thing’ about volcanoes! 🙂 Not sure I’m particularly moved to visit particular kinds of geological features. Everything has its own beauty; I just try to stay open to whatever is where I am.

        • you’re right about beauty, Sir… btw, have you ever been to Poland – the land of your ancestors? – even though you’ve been American for (several?) generations?… ‘cuz I think our identity is very important!

  6. When I saw the photos, the first thing that came to mind was the soil is volcanic… so, I’m right.

  7. That’s one place I’d really like to see. Thanks for sharing, Melanie.

    • avec joie, Leslie… 🙂 for north-Americans, it’s cheaper and closer to get to the Canary islands than to Hawaii – via a direct flight to Madrid or Barcelona, Spain, and then a short connection flight to any Canary island…(you’ll find posts about the 4 Canary islands in my archives)

  8. A beautiful place! And photos!

  9. Je veux aller en Islande un jour pour voir les aurores boréales. Cela doit être beau!
