Canary Islands part 3 – Day trips from Moya
It is great having a car and just exploring. Today we decided to head out towards the north western side of the island towards Sardina. This side of the island is amazingly different from the south which is very dry and dessert like. The northern part has much more rain and therefore a greener climate.
We stopped in Galdar for lunch. A cute small town and it was raining. We found Alcori Bar and Restaurant and ordered some Chinese food.
I love walking through foreign towns in the rain, there is a quiet, a peacefulness. It looks like there is some kind of flower festival or competition this weekend.
After lunch we continued on to Sardina, a small town on the north western tip of the island.
We explored the small port, the fishing boats are SO small!!!!
All throughout Spain you will find some people lived in cave homes, and today some still do. We would later actually meet the owner of the white home on the left. He showed us pictures of the interior, it was modern and luxurious!
We are celebrating Terri-Lynn’s 50th birthday and so far it has been awesome! The Canary Islands were never on my radar and I am so happy to be here. We also took a day trip to the wine growing region of the island and the town of Fataga. You can read about that here. We still have another stop before getting on the cruise ship. We met in Hawaii where Terri-Lynn sailed with her family so I thought it would be a good idea to stay on a sail boat for a few nights in the city of Las Palmas. Continue reading here.
