The Spanish Tourism Office in the Netherlands nominated my Tenerife blog for the “Proef Spanje 2012” awards in the category Blogs. This years theme was ‘Nature’. The prize giving was on the 29th of November; a special evening was organized in the Spanish Ambassador’s Residence in den Hague. Although I did not win, it was a great honor and quite a special evening!
May 2012 I was asked to participate in an International Bloggers Trip to Tenerife. The invite came from the Spanish Tourism Board and Tenerife Tourism. I went as guest journalist-blogger for the Dutch travel website Bestemming in Beeld (Destination in Pictures). We were nine people from eight countries and in five days we were whizzed off our heels to three festivals, whale watch, wine tasting, Going up the El Teide volcano & National Park, cookery lessons, theme parks and fantastic 5* hotels were we were treated as VIPs.
