but also the expanse
This was not our first trip to Tenerife, but this year we were surprisingly unlucky with the weather. We were on the island in the first half of July, there were no completely sunny days, the sea was not too hospitable, it often rained. Basically, the picture outside the window was like this:
We stayed at the Sandos San Blas Nature Resort & Golf 5 * hotel near the town of Los Abrigos. The hotel is not ready to praise or scold much, but the well-heated pools were a big plus, thanks to which our vacation did not go completely without swimming. In terms of accessibility to beaches, this location is only suitable for those who, like us, rent a car.

I arrived on the most populated island of Indonesia – Java in early September by ferry from Sumatra. It was included in the price of a bus to Jakarta. I chose the time to visit Java, as it is hot there all year, but in September at least there is little rainfall. Rains occasionally occur, but in general for all types of recreation the month is ideal. You can swim, sunbathe, dive, climb mountains, walk in national parks, go to museums.

Dozens of hotels and restaurants, the cultural heritage of the Portuguese and the relaxed atmosphere of a leisurely life create a unique “cocktail” that intoxicates travelers from the very first day of their stay in Goa.
The best time to travel. So, the decision to vacation in Goa is made! Now it is time to decide when to take the trip. Since the climate on the west coast of India is subject to monsoon changes in weather conditions, the year is divided into dry and wet season. It is much nicer to rest in the dry season, which lasts from late October to mid April. Continue reading
