The Banana Road – Its Tenerife But Not As You Know It

As a Baby Boomer Travel, Health & Fitness Blogger and avid reader, I recently added a new book reviews segment to my blog. My most recent read is the featured author’s latest publication called; The Banana Road.

First off, if youre not quite familiar with the term Baby Boomers, then be sure to check out my introduction here at Gr8 Travel Tips Homepage. It gives a fun detailed description on just who we Millions of Boomers Around the World are.

The Banana Road – Its Tenerife But Not As You Know It, takes you to the author and her husbands first years and experiences living abroad. The book is followed with another delightful read and continuation, which was written by Andreas husband called: 🐫 Camel Spit & Cork Trees.

I was delighted to be given the opportunity to read and to offer a personal review of both publications.
