I've just returned from a two-week trip to the Islands of Tenerife, La Gomera and Lanzarote in the Canaries.  This volcanic archipelago contains an incredible diversity of ecosystems, as well as unique and striking plant species (particularly succulents) and fascinating volcanic landscapes.  Soon I'll begin a series of postings going into more depth - stay tuned!
