We spent last week on vacations in Tenerife, enjoying the nice climate and all the hiking possibilities.

The highlight of this short stay was to climb on the Teide volcano, in two steps - first to the Altavista hut at 3200m, then to the top, the next morning at 5:45 AM, to catch the sunrise at 3700m.

One nice thing I noticed when coming back is that one week of hiking and spending the day outside really helped refuel my creative energy - I have not been as productive as I’ve been this week in a long time.
