Nicola Quinn

she was shipped along with the rest of her parents' belongings at a young age in 2002

Nicky didn't move to Tenerife because she was craving a change in lifestyle, in fact she didn't decide to move to the island at all - she was shipped along with the rest of her parents' belongings at a young age in 2002.

She attended a British school on the island where her passion for writing began to grow. Thankfully, the school drummed Spanish lessons into the pupils' heads daily so she's now fluent which makes getting all the tiresome yet important things done in Tenerife so much easier.

Since she had spent a large part of her childhood in Tenerife and felt like it was her real home, Nicky felt no strong urge to return to the UK to pursue her studies like her friends. Instead she focused on getting work on the island and being able to support herself whilst also enjoying the fantastic weather and laid-back culture that the UK couldn't compete with.

Not wanting to completely push higher education to one side, Nicky looked into distance learning and managed to study English Language and English Literature from home whilst working full time.

When she's not scribbling in a notebook or tapping the keys of a keyboard she can be found in the kitchen whipping up a new recipe

After flitting through various restaurant and bar jobs, Nicky found herself working as part of an IT help desk which didn't suit her. But within a few months she managed to wriggle her way into a copywriting position in the content department of a web team, where she still works today. Although holding no literary qualifications above IGCSEs and A levels, Nicky has always had a strong passion for writing and was more than happy to work in an environment where she could pick up knowledge along the way.

In addition to writing, Nicky's other passion is cooking. When she's not scribbling in a notebook or tapping the keys of a keyboard she can be found in the kitchen whipping up a new recipe or wandering around a farmers' market searching for fresh ingredients. In 2011, Nicky found a way to bring her two greatest passions together and began her own food blog where she keeps track of all her recipes, foodie travels, and the various food festivals which take place in Tenerife.

keeps an eye out for new restaurant openings and tries to attend as many culinary events in Tenerife

Always eager to discover new gastronomic delights on the island, Nicky keeps an eye out for new restaurant openings and tries to attend as many culinary events in Tenerife that she can find time for.

Most of Nicky's working week is spent inside a dreary office, so come Friday afternoon she's ready to burst into the great outdoors and make the most of her weekend. One of her favourite activities is camping. Although not too keen on sleeping in a tent pitched on the side of a mountain whilst the wind howls through the tall trees, Nicky finds herself agreeing to camping trips time after time to savour mouth-watering BBQ food and unbeatable sense of complete freedom.

Nicky's interested in almost everything that goes on in Tenerife - from magical walks which take travellers through verdant laurisilva forests and soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches, to watching the latest shows and taking part in the colourful fiestas that Tenerife is famous for.
