As mentioned in my last post, for my birthday, Nathan whisked me away to Lanzarote. So, I wanted to share some pictures on here with you readers, and let my fingers do some typing.
“Arid Lanzarote, one of the Canary islands off the coast of West Africa, is known for its year-round warm weather, beaches and volcanic landscape. East-coast resort Puerto del Carmen has whitewashed villas, a harbor and dive centers. Caletón Blanco is a string of northern coves with calm, clear water for snorkeling, and Famara beach has cliffs for hang gliding and surf schools.”
We stayed in Puerto del Carmen, which was really close to an amazing beach. One of the best beaches I’ve been to actually. The sand was so clean and soft under my feet. I impressed a few people with my decent Spanish and I loved the overall friendly atmosphere.
The lovely hotel was made up of different apartments outside, so it was like having your own house in a little village, rather than being cooped up in a large building with different floors – I love that concept and it really made us feel at home. All the apartments were white and I think that was a great idea; the sun bounced off them and it made everything so bright and refreshing to look at.
One thing I also loved was that it wasn’t too hot, but it was just right (on average just over 20 degrees). If you want to see even more pics from this trip, check out my Photography online portfolio here.
