I just got a phone call from Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. A friend is there on honeymoon, and as he knows we have been there, he wanted ideas for a roundtrip.
Almost three years ago, the first week of January 2011, Terje and I fled a heavy blizzard in Norway and flew south to this paradise island. And fell in love. Not with each other, that happened in 1978 and will last as long as we live, these January days we fell in love with Tenerife.
A week with hikes, botanical gardens, mountains....
a week where Christmas was still celebrated in January.....
.....a week for The Magi.
And a week for a queen.
As we strolled around in a little village north on the island, the most beautiful nativity scene of the holy family caught my interest.
"Oh, Terje, look! This is a must have!"
Poor Terje, rolled his eyes, shaked his head, muttered "don´t you have enough nativities", and walked over to the counter to pay.
We are going back to Tenerife in January 2014,
and if I find another creche.......
...well, of course I will buy it :-)
