Holiday in Tenerife, Playa de las Américas

The videos in this blog post are the 2 most beautiful moments of my life when I was on Holiday in Tenerife, Playa de las Américas that I wanted to share with you. I hope that you find it all inspiring and maybe you enjoy it so much that you want to do it yourself after watching these videos…

I also included photos from the Jet Ski Safari at Los Gigantes, the MaxiCat Catamaran Trip and the Quad Safari to the base of the volcano…

Did you know that the movie Star Wars was filmed there?

It’s called The Lunar Landscape, I made 2 panorama pictures at the exact spot…

Finally I have my website working again without problems and I’ve updated the way how you view the images, before the update you’d see the enlarged image in a new tab and now you’ll see it in a lightbox on top of this site which is a much better user experience for you, I’d love to get some feedback from you in the comment section below.

Easy Diving

This one is made on the first day that I arrived in Tenerife, it was literally a couple of hours after touchdown with the airplane…

I have to tell you something else, when I arrived at the airport there was nobody there to help us to get transported to the hotels and I was on a German flight and all those German people didn’t really know what to do and started looking around for people and in the meanwhile I managed to charter a bus and I was the only one in the entire bus, maybe the driver didn’t want to drive all those people to all the different places I don’t know but when I think back at it I still have to laugh because he left all those Germans at the airport and only took me onboard…

I thought if the rest of this holiday goes the same that this is gonna be paradise for me…

and it really was like paradise… best holiday ever!

I always wanted to go diving in a beautiful place but never had the chance before so it was super exciting for me and I couldn’t have wished for a better experience as this one, you really have to watch this video to see it yourself…

The best part of the video is somewhere at the end when a sea turtle came by and ate a fish out of my hand..!! It’s something that I will never forget and I hope that you like it as much as I do when I watch it again and again… I can’t get enough of it…

It also has a cool soundtrack that really fits with the Easy Diving video, I’m sure you’ll love it…

The videos are hosted on Wistia and because a WordPress website is highly customizable the way to get the code to convert has many variations, in fact on my website I could use the Inline Embed code without selecting oEmbed which is the recommended way to do it but that didn’t work and now that I have installed a few more plugins the only way that’s working right now is by using the Popover Embed and in the Options section “Display link as Thumbnail”, “Responsive” needs to be selected.

I’ll go into the details later, first enjoy the 2 videos below.





I think that this is just as exciting as diving, but if you ever have the chance to do this if you’re not scared of heights you should do it at least once because it feels flying like a bird, it’s so gentle and an unforgettable experience…

I liked it so much that I wanted to go a second time and I was so lucky the second time when we got at the top of the mountain and I got out of the car, just next to the door when I looked down I found 70 Euro cash money folded on the ground..!! Hahahahahaaaaaa… second time didn’t cost me anything because he gave me a discount so I had to pay 50 Euro and 20 Euro in my pocket, what a coincidence huh?

I’ve made this video together with the pilot on a selfie stick but you’ll be surprised how professional it looks, even I’m amazed how I managed to capture the moment so good because it’s my first time Paragliding and making a video of myself with a camera on a selfie stick…

The soundtrack in this video is really uplifting the moment, every time that I watch it I always get goosebumps…





And here are the paragliding photos in a nifty slider

The Wistia Benefits and Differences compared with YouTube are:

What you don’t get is that there isn’t a way to integrate advertisements such as Google AdSense on YouTube, Wistia simply doesn’t do that so it’s better when you need to keep people focused on your video message without distractions.

Different goals, different platform… everything has its own purpose and Wistia has its own special tricks that you don’t have on YouTube, you can at least give it a try.

Here are the different options you can choose:

  1. My Special Wistia Agency Offer for you which is different from the default free plan is a 45-Day Free Trial  with all the Advanced Integrations from the Premium Plan included (That’s a $450 gift as a token of appreciation for using my special offer). Click here to Get Your Special Wistia Offer Now!
  2. The default Free Plan comes with 3 videos, 200GB of bandwidth per month, and enough storage to house those videos. It also comes with Wistia player branding but the video player is highly customizable so you can use the colors of your brand and have better looking integrations.
  3. The Pro Plan costs $100 per month and comes with 150 videos, 200GB of bandwidth per month (For 93% of our users, this is more than enough). There is NO Wistia branding on your player.
  4. The Premium Plan starts at $300 per month and comes with marketing automation integrations (Wistia built advanced integrations with HubSpot, Marketo, Pardot and Salesforce, this enables you to collect leads from your videos, segment them in your CRM, and then engage with them depending on their viewing behavior), you also get Account Management, SLAs, Priority Support and you can upload a large number of videos, you can use the APIs and have millions of views without the need to pay more for extra bandwidth.


Wistia is better when you have videos like the 2 that I’m sharing on this blog post because in this case the videos contain audio tracks that aren’t approved on Facebook at first, but after emailing them to explain how I got the videos and that I paid for it on my holiday Facebook approved, however on YouTube you need to remove the original audio completely and use one of their free audio tracks instead which kills the whole experience of the video in my opinion.

Of course if you watch the videos for the first time you wouldn’t have a clue about that but I couldn’t find anything else for these videos because the audio tracks are too short in the first place and editing it on the YouTube Creator website didn’t let me loop the audio or use a different audio track after the first one so only the first 5 maybe 7 minutes would have music in the video…

That’s not what we want, spending too much time on editing videos and searching for the right audio tracks etc.

You don’t need to think about all that with Wistia and that’s a big plus if you’d ask me!

Computers and Gadgets is what I'm really passionate about and because of my 20+ years of coding experience most technical stuff is easy for me to understand and I'm able to save a lot of time and money because of it but I didn't have any way to share that with people and pass on some of my knowledge.

That's why I started this blog... Coding and building websites is almost the same thing and I really love to experiment with code on my websites and share that with people online. This is how I started with Internet Marketing.

Now I'm teaching what I'm doing here on my website and would love to add your success story to my website.
