Ah – my sweet European travels have come to an end. I won’t be seeing one of these small gems for a while.

It’s been a fun summer, that’s forsure. I hope it’s been one incredible summer for all our White Cabana readers as well!

Every time I look at this picture I notice an object that I hadn’t noticed before. It is as though everything is camoflauged.

The Canary Islands, although actually part of Spain, are located only about 10km off the coast of Morocco. This archipelago is made up of several islands including: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. Very cool.
El Auditorio, Tenerife
A few years ago, my friend Shannon and I had the most fabulous vacation in the Canary Islands. In our too-short holiday, we managed to tour Tenerife and Gran Canaria with our friend (and local Gran Canarian), Ignacio. We¬†ate great food, met many nice people, and enjoyed visiting small towns, driving around in our little rental car, and brushing up on our Spanish. We also managed to jump our way across the two islands – at the Dunes at Maspalomas, Parque Nacional Teide, in Mogan,¬†and¬†at one of our gorgeous hotels, the Reina Isabel in Las Palmas.¬†One of our favourite photo shoots was at El Auditorio, the Tenerife Opera House.

If you’re looking for a beautiful vacation destination chock-full of adventure, I would encourage you to consider the Canary Islands. They don’t disappoint.

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Con Brio Farm. It was a glorious morning filled with horses, dogs, and equestrian fashion.¬†Although there were many lovely horses in the stables, I fell in love with Caroline’s beautiful white mare.

On my last trip to Paris, I went to the Institut du Monde Arabe for the very first time. What a sight for the eyes! The architecture is intricate and so geometric.¬†

The outside of the building is gorgeous and from the cafe terrace one has a beautiful view of the buttresses of the Notre Dame.
