Canary Islands

The next, Bego planned a trip to the volcano, Teide. I was designated the driver of her dad’s car and I nervously got in the manual car parked on a slope with her dad watching. I eased off the clutch and luckily the car didn’t stall even though I anticipated it since I had not driven in a while. We were off.

The drive was beautiful. The twisty paved roads were a cinch to drive on and every few kilometers Bego would have us pullover and look at something spectacular.
