Jack Montgomery Jack Montgomery - Tenerife Insider

In 2003 author, feature writer, blogger, and photographer, Jack Montgomery swapped working in an office overlooking the Theatre of Dreams in Manchester for working from home overlooking banana plantations in North Tenerife. Since then meticulous research into the island's culture (e.g. staying out at fiestas till dawn, eating odd looking things with tentacles & dressing as a grieving widow) has led to two books, 'Real Tenerife Island Drives' & 'Going Native in Tenerife', magazine and website articles and various blogs.
Colin Kirby Colin Kirby - Tenerife Insider

With a motto of 'have pen, will scribble' writer Colin Kirby moved from the cool world of writing about ice hockey in Britain to covering much hotter topics, in temperature terms anyway, for Tenerife's newspapers and magazines. For nine years Colin has travelled the highs and lows of Tenerife's countryside, courtesy of Titsa, the public bus company, gathering material for articles and blogs, whilst simultaneously experiencing highs and lows of another kind following the fortunes of his adopted football team, CD Tenerife.
Meryl Kew Meryl Kew - Tenerife Insider

Living a stone's throw from Tenerife's main southern resorts as well as on the doorstep of small hill towns where spoken English is an infrequent visitor has given blogger Meryl Kew an experience of Tenerife's contrasting worlds.

After six years going where the road takes her and trying out different restaurants, Meryl has built up a knowledge of Tenerife that ranges from where to sip barraquitos (Canarian speciality coffee) in the morning to where to catch the hottest acts to hit Tenerife's cabaret scene in the evening.
Steve Andrews Steve Andrews - Tenerife Insider

Steve Andrews is Cardiff born and Cardiff bred, and lived there until the end of 2004 when he moved to Tenerife. He had been to the island on holiday two years before and felt as if he had found where he truly belonged. It was a bit like how a transsexual feels trapped in the wrong body. For Steve it was as if he had been trapped in the wrong country. It was as if the island spoke to him and said: "This is where you belong!"
Linda Wainwright Linda Wainwright - Tenerife Insider

Linda currently lives in the bohemian resort of El Médano and has been a Tenerife resident since 1987. With her two sons now flown the nest, she has emerged from the mantle of motherhood to trade her apron for a camera and shopping lists for a blog, and has set out to discover the parts of her island home that have remained elusive to her during her 23 year tenure. Living by the philosophy "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain", Linda finds that Tenerife has a never-ending repertoire of tunes to which she can dance.
Nicola Quinn Nicola Quinn - Tenerife Insider

Moving from the biting north east of England at a very early age, Nicky grew up in the sunny south of Tenerife, an experience that gave her a unique view of the island which she calls her home. Now a copywriter, freelancer and blogger, Nicky lives in a quiet beachfront resort and spends most of her time scribbling away in a notepad, throwing recipes together in the kitchen and exploring every inch of Tenerife.
