Back in our childhood days my brother and I were lucky enough to be taken on a variety of amazing family holidays abroad including Italy numerous times to visit family, other European countries full of wonderful culture such as Spain and France, and incredible exotic destinations like Australia, Malaysia and Zimbabwe. Because I was able to see how diverse, amazing and beautiful the world is, I’ve had a strong sense of wanderlust to see as much of it as possible since those amazing family vacations.
While products lose value over time, the memories of an incredible trip really will last a lifetime, so now, even more so I choose experiences over objects. Next week I will be heading off to Tenerife for the first time, for some more amazing life experiences which I will share with you via social media and this blog. I want to show you all the fun and excitement that travel can bring, and hopefully inspire some of you guys to get out there and see more of the world.

I have been kindly invited by GoTimeshare and the RDO (Resort Development Organisation) to travel to Costa Adeje in the South West of Tenerife and stay at the beautiful Pearly Grey Ocean Club. I am really looking forward to enjoying the amazing sights and excursions that Tenerife has to offer. I relocated to the fascinating and beautiful island of Lanzarote from the UK last summer. I have always loved warm, sunny weather and beaches which the Canary Islands have in abundance, making these incredible islands the perfect for me. There is a good reason why the Canaries have often been described as having “the best climate in the world“!
So far, as well as living in Lanzarote and enjoying holidays here, I have also stayed on Fuerteventura, and the small island of La Graciosa. I am eager to explore the other islands though, as all of them have an amazing climate, but each are renowned for their own unique beauty. While I love Lanzarote, from everything I have heard from friends, family and others, Tenerife is definitely worth visiting as it is one of the top travel destinations in Europe, and perhaps even the world.

I will be staying at the Pearly Grey Ocean Club which sits on the south-west coast of Tenerife, on the Costa Adeje, offering amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean from the apartments, restaurant and swimming pool, and is in a great location to visit other parts of Tenerife.

Pearly Grey is one of the top timeshare resorts in Tenerife with excellent facilities to compliment its breath-taking location, including gym, wellness centre, sports facilities, top quality entertainment, and bars and restaurants such as The Edge Terrace Bar where you can enjoy high quality food and drink while gazing out at unrivalled views of the ocean.

If staying at Pearly Grey Ocean Club wasn’t enough, I have also been invited by the RDO and the resort to go on a number of unique and exciting excursions which will all add to this being a once in a lifetime experience! While not everything has been completely finalised, here is a taste of some of the things I will be getting up to on my trip in Tenerife:
A visit to Aqualand Costa Adeje, part of which will include seeing an amazing Dolphin Show. The display put on by this large group of bottlenose dolphins and their trainers has won the best show in the world award at IMATA (International Marine Animal Trainers’ Association)::

You can probably tell why I’m super excited to visit Tenerife, stay in the beautiful Pearly Grey Ocean Club and experience all these incredible excursions. For any travel writer and lover, this is definitely a dream job. Once again a big thank you to the RDO, Go Timeshare and Pearly Grey Ocean Club for organising this trip for me. While there I will be writing blog posts, posting photos and videos, and sharing with you my experiences of my time in Tenerife on all my social media channels.
