Tenerife | Day 1

Tenerife | Day 1

36 hours travel with two young kids

We made it to Tenerife!!! We drove to BWI and our amazing friends, Rick and Sue took us to the airport to begin our 4 flight journey. On the first leg of our flight from BWI to Iceland, Poppy sat by the window, me in the middle seat, and Peaches in her car seat on the outside seat.  John sat across in the other row. When Poppy woke, she said, "Mommy, I think those are the Aurora Borealis lights, they look just like the ones in our book, The Salmon Princess." Sure enough, I looked out the window and it was streaks of hazy green lights coming up and down, and hovering over the ocean, and the moon was bright orange! By the time I crawled over Peaches seat to get my camera from overhead, they were gone. Super bummed we didn't get photos of them, but as my folks told me, take a photo with your mind. It was such a magical experience!!
