This site is all about the beautiful island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands.
I came here with a six-month contract to work at the observatory, fell in love with the place, and stayed. It’s been twenty years so far, and I still feel smug every time I see a plane leaving. Because I get to stay.
So when I got made redundant from my job at the observatory, I retrained as a tour guide, specialising in astronomy. As far as I know, La Palma and Tenerife are the only places in the world with Starlight Guides, because we have such amazing night skies. But I also enjoy showing people the other glories of our miniature continent.
