JiJa does your Country - La Gomera

Hole.
Hope you don't mind if I stick to English.
I am JiJa, I am from Hamburg, and I love travalling. Last month I have visteted your Island called "La Gamora" and like to share my pictures with you

You can checkout my linklist for completed photostories, if you want to know what is awaiting you.

So let's start!

La Gomera
- 2017 edition by SheJot -
___________________________________________________



This journey starts of course in Germany, where I took for the first time in my life the train from Hamburg to Frankfurt. I stayed near the ariport in an Hotel area still under cunstruction with no real opportunities to go out for lunch or drinks or stuff like that. While I am standing in front of my window with beer from a nearby gas station in my Hand and the airport on the other side of the Autobahn I am looking forward that my windowview will turn way better the next days.


Next day and the Condor-Plane starts from the only shitty Gate in Frankfurt. C1
It is the only gate where you cannot get into the duty free area and get lost between whiskey and vodka offers.


The Condor flight was also shit. I was travelling so much, that I should have known that Condor is like Ryanair. Nothing included and no individual entertainment programm on a 5 hours flight. But look! Right next to the window the canarian island finally appear. Hurray!


There are two different ships connecting Tenerife with La Gomera. First I took the Red-white one. It is not very busy that day. I've heard that sometimes the ferry has to go serveral times.


Welcome on board


... to be continued

Hands up!
For ne entertanment on plane I got free one on the ship


A typical holiday picture you have to make


In strong blowing wind a crewmember cleans the bridge windows. In the mist appears my destination. Normally you can see the island from each other, but not at that day. Maybe too much sand from the Sahara in the air


Last stage to Valle Gran Rey in the south-west of the Island by bus. Someone told me the bus drivers have different nicknames on the island. From "Domingo" to "Fernando Alonso". You can tell who is who when you are riding with them
Snap shot outside teh bus window to the central peaks of the island

Next day from Valle Grany Rey via Bus into the "Parque Nacional de Garajony" The largest laurel forest on the Canarian Island. The daily Passat Cloud procuces vertical rain and the trees do some kind of cloud seeding.


But the Park is something for my last day, so I am leaving it quite fast ...


... to lower areas, less forested. I am going back to Valle Gran Rey - a 1.100 Meters decent.

Arure mainstreet. Time to buy some snacks for later. Too early for lunch

A small water reservoir near Arure


Beyond ths stone bridge lays the entrance to the out of use Restaurant "Mirador del Santo",


... with a great view on the Atlantic Ocean and the village Taguluche.


The common la gomerian giant esparrago. A local delicacy.


I walk further south to the next viewpoint. This time my bus-startpoint - Valle Gran Rey - lays approx 780 Meter below me. Have a look at the harbour. There is a cruise-ship terminal. Expept for its grand opening it was never use and is out of service. Here I enjoy my snack from Arure and afterwards it's time to go down there to get some well deserved sore muscles.


... La Calera stretcence. Here you leave the hiking path.

Another Day, Another hike. This time from Alajero to Imada. Next to Alajero there is the village of Targa.


Here the old royal path leads down into the valley. There are no stone stairs, because the Mules had problems with them. So its party very steep, but nothing really difficult.


You see the little white house in the center upon the hill in the Background? A very small white box. There I have to pass on my way to Imada. It is freaking hot down the valley with absolutely no wind. Sweating I start to feel my "office-legs"


When I reached the top, I had to realize, that it is still quite a way to Imada and a cold orange juice. Meeeeeeh
