Τα Κανάρια Νησιά είναι ένα αρχιπέλαγος με μια συστάδα νησιών με πληθυσμό 1.700.000 που βρίσκεται βορειοδυτικά των ακτών της Αφρικής στον Ατλαντικό Ωκεανό.

Περιλαμβάνει επτά μεγάλα νησιά τη Μεγάλη Κανάρια ή Γκραντ Κανάρια, τη Φουερτεβεντούρα, τη Λανθαρότε, την Τενερίφη, τη Λα Πάλμα, την Γκομέρα, το Ιέρρο και πολλά αλλά μικρότερα. Γεωγραφικά βρίσκονται βορειοανατολικά της Αφρικανικής ηπείρου και πολιτικά ανήκουν στην Ισπανία.

Τα Κανάρια Νησιά είναι γνωστά για τα όμορφα τοπία τους, το ζεστό καιρό και τους φιλόξενους ανθρώπους.
Το νησί της Τενερίφης είναι ο ιδανικός προορισμός όλο το χρόνο. Βρίσκεται στα γαλάζια και δροσερά νερά του Ατλαντικού Ωκεανού και είναι το μεγαλύτερο από τα επτά Κανάρια Νησιά.
Η ονομασία Κανάρια φαίνεται να δόθηκε παλιά από τους άγριους σκύλους (λατινικά "canes") που ζούσαν σ’ αυτά. Αξέχαστες μέρες σ΄ ένα από τα Κάναρια Νησιά και νιώστε ότι βρίσκεστε σε μια όαση ομορφιάς.

Thanks for letting me know that you have been to Jaipur. Did you post any pictures on the blog from that trip.

I have to say I too have been to Athens, long back in 2001 for a conference but managed to see a small part of the city. Greetings from India.
