New image gallery: Lanzarote 2011


24 January 2011

Indeed.

You've read it well.

Your eyes are not fooling you.

I have traveled one of Europe's roads least traveled... by independent travelers.

 

Lanzarote, an island of the Canaries, a Spanish archipelago near the west cost of Morocco, is quite well known for its all-in, all you can eat and drink package holidays. A high percent of the tourists have probably never seen the outside of their hotel or maybe for a five minute walk to the beach.

 

Elderly Europeans spend their winters in Lanzarote sountering from their appartment to the bar to the shopping street to the bar to the mall to the bar and back to their appartment.

 

But there had to be more, there had to be a whole island to explore.
So the need for exploration - and the lack of sunlight during the last three months - got us on our way.

 

And we enjoyed it.

And the island was great.

And here is the PICTURE GALLERY

Additionally, there have also been some new PORTRAITS added.

And additionally additionally there will also be an article about Lanzarote. But that one's not finished yet, so if you'd like to learn more keep an eye on these pages.

Comments are appreciated.

Very nice! The pictures remind me of the Spanish movie "Lucia y el sexo" but I remember that the movie was shot in the Balearic Islands and not in the Canary Islands.

Now that you mention it, I've also seen that movie and the island there has indeed some similarities with Lanzarote.

That's right, of all places in Europe, the Canaries provide the best chance for sunny weather. I heard it was about 2500 to 3000 hours of sun per year, which is double of where I live...

Hi, I try not to carry too much heavy and expensive stuff while traveling, so my gear is pretty basic.
These photos have been taken with a Canon SLR 450D and a Sigma 18-200 objective.
