In the first half of 2001, Britain was gripped by foot and mouth disease and the countryside was out-of-bounds to hikers. I had been to Scotland every Easter for years but this time it wasn't possible. Instead, Katherine and I flew to Tenerife and spent a very pleasant week enjoying the sun, sea and scenery.
Tenerife has really quite varied terrain, including a huge volcano in the middle, some rugged coastline and lush forests. This page should give you an impression of what we found.
