    Los Rodeos (Tenerife North) Airport
    Feb 18, 2008

    Aeropuerto Tenerife Norte
    Tenerife North Airport is less well known these days [after the major incident in 1977] & a lot less used by foreign travellers. Most non-Spanish tourists now arrive at Tenerife South Airport. The new inter-island flight hall has transformed this airport into the Canary Islands main inter island & internal domestic flight [eg from Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao etc] hub. A lovely airport, open and airy with plants and flower beds tended on the apron.
    Islas Airways, Binter Canarias, Spanair, Swift Air, Air Europa & Thomsonfly aircraft.
    Fred. Olsen arranged/provided all free drinks, including wine, and a very nice hot meal. [Tomato & Mushroom Pasta, Chicken Pomodoro, Apple Glazed caramel with Custard, cheese and biscuits and a Rosemary Focaccio Roll & butter].

    A Coruña [La Coruña, Corunna]
    Feb 15, 2008

    La Coruña is the 2nd largest city in Galicia, NW Spain [after Vigo]. A busy port built on a promontory, bustling town, famous for its seafood restaurants, lovely beaches with plenty of Museums and sights to keep one busy, including Torre de Hércules, built by the Romans as a navigation beacon in the 2nd century A.D. - the oldest lighthouse in the world, which is still in use. During the summer months a tram runs around the coast and the main sites, but with no tram and having visited before we just wandered about the central area.
