RURAL CANARIAN INTRODUCTIONS


The Canarian Islands archipelago can tell us a lot of fascinating stories concerning the predominant diverse elemental influences on our unique home planet because mighty primeval forces have once created and are still transforming these islands in the Atlantic Ocean: volcanism, wind and erosion, rain and ocean waves, sunshine (while human beings firstly settled here only around 2,500 years ago). So in the centre of Tenerife you will find for instance a real huge volcanic caldera at the bottom of Mt. Teide (3,718 m) and when passing this bizarre landscape it really feels like being a tiny ant in a giants’ world. Here are some photographic impressions from my latest visit to Tenerife in March 2017 such allowing a rather more fragmentary glimpse on it, there is of course much more to discover.

Somewhere in the Teno mountains near Masca.

I like travelling through the diverse realities and cultures of this world not only as a tourist. So this may also happen by simply imaginating the hidden rivers and caves of consciousness where postmodern nomads are crossing wide endless landscapes leading to a dream of no-where. My favourite areas are deserts like the sahara or high mountains, as in these empty terrestric regions the far-away horizon and sky is no limit anymore but a possible gate to inspiration and freedom. Posts will be published normally in English, but whenever appropriate also only in my mother tongue German. Unless otherwise mentioned or individually specified (for example by naming the author, artist, etc.) all texts, photos and/or graphic illustrations in this blog are subject to Β© urban liaisons (which may please be respected).

    1. Well such a trip shortens also the just too long Central European winter. So we visit the Canarians regularly. I am still writing-pondering about your weekly topic, may be a contribution later this week or the week after. Time will tell …
