This save is inspired by @Makoto Nakamura, whose current Cyprus save has given me the idea to do something similar (although it won't be anywhere near as good). The premise of this comes from a 3 month trip to Europe at the end of last year. Being from Australia that was a huge trip and I had a great time and some really great experiences. Anyway, the last leg of my trip was supposed to be Ireland, after starting in England, then heading to France, followed by Spain, Italy, Greece, Germany, and then finally Ireland. My family that I stayed with in Ireland had other ideas. About 3 days into my stay there (I was supposed to be there for 10 days) my cousin says to me 'oh hey why don't you come to Tenerife with us?' As the weather in Ireland at that point was the typical Irish weather, you didn't have to ask me twice! So fast forward a couple of days and we are down in Cork airport, catching a flight to Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, a part of Spain but closer to the coast of Africa. It's not a huge island but has close to a million people. I must say, this was the most fun I had on the trip. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, sun, sand, fantastic food, and one of the best water parks in the world, Siam Park. It's also the location of Spain's highest point, Mt Teide, an active volcano that last erupted in 1909. The club that I will be managing will be the biggest club on the island, Club Deportivo Tenerife. I took a shine to them after having walked nearly 3 kilometres to get to their fan shop so I could buy a jersey. They currently play in the Spanish second division, but have been promoted to La Liga 4 times, their last time being 2010 and their longest stint occurring from 1989 to 1999. They have finished as high as 5th in the top division and have played in the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) twice during that period.
