For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! Obviously we love travelling at all times of the year, with every month having something different to offer. We can’t deny though, of all the seasons, summer is quite possibly our favourite. There is just something extra special about gorgeous hot sunny days and warm summer evenings, with the sun not setting until late. The warmer temperatures, the longer days and the overall more favourable weather makes everyone seem that much happier!
A big part of this general improvement in people’s moods, is that for many of us, summer is the time to get away on holiday. One destination that you might know about but have overlooked is the Canary Islands. One reason for often being dismissed, is that this beautiful Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic ocean has unfairly received a bad reputation from some journalists, including on occasions from those who have never even visited. Unlike these dubious news sources though, we know what we’re talking about. Here are 6 photos that prove why you need to see the Canary Islands this summer!
