La Palma and Tenerife, march 2010
Dutch version

This webpage is on my visit to La Palma and Tenerife, two of the Canary Islands (Spain). The first days I spend on La Palma paying a visit to the Dutch Open Telescope (DOT) and I was able to attend an EURONEAR observing session at the Isaac Newton Telescope(INT). The second half of my stay was at Tenerife. Here tried to understand the power and magic of those big Atlantic ocean waves. At last we tried to climb the Pico del Teide, the big volcano on the island with an altitude of 3718 meter above sealevel but because lack of time we could not succeed.
