Gran Canaria – A Road Trip

Anthony Bourdain:

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

The island of Gran Canaria is commonly associated with crowded beaches, towering hotels and frantic holiday makers, but there is a different side to it as well
For those of us seeking an alternative experience, the interior of the island offers a serene beauty, some spectacular panoramic views and remnants of the original “Islas Canarias”

The trip took us around the island – a trip that can easily be done in a day. Starting in Puerto de Mogan the first half was through the vast tourist areas developed on the western and southern parts. Once you reach the small town of Teror (with a single “r”) the whole sceenery changes completely.
