Spain: Visit to Tenerife

Submitted by Cameron Kravitz on the 2022 spring semester program in Madrid, Spain…

After another few weeks of exploring Madrid, we had the opportunity to visit Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The island was beautiful, and it was such a nice change of scenery from the more fast-paced environment in Madrid. Since it was so warm there, we took advantage of the weather and were able to spend our time by the beach. We also tried lots of new foods and learned more about the culture by talking with people who live there. One major difference that we noticed between Madrid and Tenerife was the amount of English and Spanish that was spoken in both places. In comparison to Madrid, we heard much more English in Tenerife and many of the signs were also written in English. Overall, I really enjoyed our trip there and would love to go back to experience even more of the island!
