Kel and I went parasailing off the coast of Tenerife
From London Kelly (18 at the time) and I flew to Tenerife in the Canary Islands just south of Spain (technically part of Spain, but I don't think you can really count it as having been to Spain itself). Upon arrival at our hotel - originally booked for Mom and Kel - it was very nicely (hmm) made apparent to us that we were not allowed to stay there unless accompained by someone older than 23. Problems! Phone call to mom (who was only suppose to join us in a few days) and another rushed pack-and-fly landed mom in Tenerife with us for a two-week girls trip.

We spent the next two weeks on the beach and in the sun. We did two island tours which definitely did not agree with me - on a boat and then on a bus = great combination for nausea-induction. Nevertheless we got to see a lot of the more untouched areas of the island - including the area where the pod-racing scene from Star Wars I was filmed and of course a lot of volcanic rock and awesome rock formations.
