James' Journey to Spain

Current Location

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Spain

Bienvenido! Welcome! Thank you for joining me as I travel to the island of Fuerteventura, Spain. Let's learn about life on the island, especially life for elementary schoolers!


This past weekend I left my little island of Fuerteventura for the big island of Tenerife! It was just a short trip, but I had so much fun!


Some friends and I took an adventure to the caves of Ahuy, a beautiful natural cave system on the western coast of the island.

Field Notes

Fuerteventura, my home for nine months, is a desert island. While some parts of island life--like the near-constant sun and the warm weather--are wonderful, other parts can be difficult.


Airplanes can be big and scary, but they're a necessity when I'm trying to get around between islands. Here's what it looks like to fly on one!
