Trip 29 -- Tenerife Walk

30 December 2021 to 20 January 2022

This is the seventh of 26 Abecedarian Walks, my endeavor to walk around islands whose names begin with each of the letters of the alphabet.

Each "day" below corresponds to a walking day. Occasionally I took a day off from walking, and experiences from those days are incorporated into the previous or the following walking day's account.

In addition to these verbal accounts are musings, photos, and videos on Twitter.
