I went to La Gomera many years ago, mostly through Ray Stephenson's glowing account of the place. I was not disappointed then and this time was even better, because I knew the place and saw even more than last time.

Thank you. The Hotel Jardin Tecina in Playa Santiago. It's quite a good place to stay, as it is on a bus route and the ferry stops there, too.

Did you see any Ceropegia dichotoma? I’ve seen them on Tenerife but wasn’t sure if they grow on the other islands.

Thanks for the post, I particularly enjoyed the Euphorbia canariensis.
