I love to travel and one of the best places I've ever been is Tenerife.
It also happens to be the setting of The Birthday Present!
Tenerife is a volcanic island with black sand beaches (and yellow ones ,too).
Looking towards the interior of the island towards the mountains.
Yes, that's a really young version of myself in the blue t-shirt.
(Pul-leez don't try to zoom in. It really was a loooong time ago.)
Annual precipitation is low, and parts of the island are very desert-like.
Check out these cacti is this photo my hubby took. He wasn't my hubby yet back then, but I knew he was the one.
Why do women know these things before men?
