And now one of the glass balustrades is broken already. That didn't last long!

In general we notice lots of LG, PS, and PA is getting tatty. Whatever they use as mortar to stick down the crazy paving or hold rocks into walls seems to just crumble away. And rendering on walls seems to just fall off. Odd as I presume there are never any frosts and hardly any rain, just sun and wind.

Also somebody drove into the wall on the road above Lidl, punched a hole in it and moved the rest of it back a few inches, so that needs rebuilding.

Yes there are quite a few tourists here now. A lot more than we came in Oct when bars and restaurants where lucky to have one table occupied. Nothing like normal of course.

Lots of Germans and a recent influx of Russians it would seem.

I heard from a staff member that the Royal Sun is 60% occupied ATM.

We were due to come on the 29/12 for 3 months, we did book flights on the 12/12 as our accommodation was flexible, but as they were only 16.00 each, we just did not take them up.

We are still hoping to come over when the restrictions allow, which Spain are looking at on the 10/01, also we are hoping we get the vaccine in the next couple of weeks.

As for the airlines I think they are all tarred with the same brush, we had return flights cancelled with Jet 2 & Ryanair & it took them a long time to repay us, especially the latter.

I know Tui do not have a very good reputation but when they cancelled our holiday in October, flights & Hotel, we received a full refund within a week.

Are there many tourists in the area, looking at the video cameras for the Island, they all look like ghost towns & beaches.

We would have been due in Feb/March, we will wait and see what happens, hopefully the jab will be available, we can go anytime, not had any holidays this year, the last one was the lockdown in los Gigs, chomping at the bits for a holiday, don't give a bugger if prices go up, they say everyone is skint, but i bet the airports are rammed full after the vaccine! we usually use sleezyjet because of their flight times, but the way they treated us last march will be remembered!

Georgie, we were due out next week, but moved the flights to November. And with so much uncertantey
with this new strain of virus, and wether a new lockdown is coming. We thought best not to book any thing in the short term, but wait till restrictions are lifted a bit then hopefully book quick before prices get to high.
Maybe you have to co-ordinate holiday leave with your employer, so last/minute notice wouldn't work for you.

Currently people from the UK are banned until 5 January. I have no idea what will happen after that.

Can you visit tenerife during these times if you can get a flight

One would hope by May things are better but Jet2 and Tui are the first to cancel flights when there are problems. We met a couple here a few days ago who's holiday is being cut short a week because Jet2 want to fly them home early to avoid flying out empty now that people from the UK are banned. So they paid for expensive tests to get here and but get a shorter holiday for no good reason.
