Going Native in Tenerife – The Guidebook for True Travellers.

It’s been a lot of sweat, soul searching and heartache…actually it’s been none of these things. It’s been hard work but also immensely satisfying and now the latest and most honest guidebook about Tenerife, ‘Going Native in Tenerife’ is about to hit Amazon’s virtual shelves.

You might ask yourself does Tenerife need another guidebook? Clearly as I’ve co-authored this one, I’m going to say ‘of course’, but the truth is that having written about Tenerife’s 'off the beaten track' locations for Living Tenerife Magazine and then for Real Tenerife Island Drives, my wife, Andy and I discovered that some of the most interesting places on the island were overlooked by even the biggest name guide books. Most of which tended to devote too much information to the southern resorts that even people who only want to come and lie on a beach already know about. So when the publishers at bookshaker came along and commissioned us to put together the latest in their insightful Going Native series of travel guidebooks, we were only too happy to oblige.

So here it is, a guidebook for travellers who really want to get under the skin of Tenerife and discover the island that the Tinerfeños know, not just the small area that most visitors are familiar with.
