Canary Islands part 3 – Day trips from Moya


Another shot of the view from the house we were renting

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.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
