When we first arrived in Tenerife, Nick and I quickly started making a note of places that we would like to try out. The list includes restaurants, specific food items, activities and places or things of interest. We are trying something new everyday but also want to save some experiences to share with our gifts. I mentioned in a previous post that my dear friend Fungi came to visit and we took advantage of her visit to try a few new things.
Having done the staple activities of going ‘out out’, and the beach, a good meal was in order and for this, we went to a restaurant that we had seen a few times and thought we would like to try.
We had driven past the Churrasqueria Rodeo a few times in the time that we’ve been here and wondered what the place was like so we went there for dinner.
We sat outside in the patio, on a warm Saturday evening and marvelled as different meats were paraded out and offered out to us. There were different cuts of beef, cooked in different ways… chicken, sea food, pork – all prepared in various ways and brought to you for consideration. An all you can eat where they bring the food to you. It was brilliant. The company was fantastic too. At some point, we got talking to the couple sitting behind us and it transpired that they thought that Nick was out dining with his TWO wives. We cleared this up with a very brief summary of who was who. Despite this, a couple at another table piped up saying they would happily join the family as wives number 3 and 4…
Everyone was lovely but I’m still waiting for a Facebook friend request to come through from one of them. We were joking, but, I just got a feeling…
Fungi’s last day here was off to a cloudy start unfortunately. The first for a while. So we took the chance to drive up the volcano to go seek out some sun. There’s an update to the El Teide Page with a new Gallery.
It was a genuinely grim to start but we drove up the mountain and found ourselves driving up through the clouds. It was amazing. We literally found ourselves above the
clouds. The weather above the clouds was perfect, as usual. We used a different route into the national park this time so we saw some red mountains which we hadn’t seen before.
The weekend was finished off with a stop at La Finca! Because apparently, it’s a thing for us! I’m so happ Fungi came to visit us. When we told her we were moving, she took a moment to process, then said, “Great – I’ll be there by the end of May.” And she was! I just love her confidence in herself and her determination to do whatever she sets herself to do. I even get to take part every so often! I had the best time with Fungi here and am looking forward to seeing her again soon.
