CASPIAN TO LAS PALMAS

It’s funny really. It doesn’t matter where you live, there are always some people that will complain that nothing happens. That all the days are the same. And they wished that they lived somewhere exiting.
I have been there and I guess still am. More so now I think, well I have actually gone from being in the city to living on an Island…
Oh, that made sense didn’t it.. oh well.

But on the bright side, every time something exiting DOES happen, I get to experience the feeling of  REAL JOY !
My heart starts pumping. I feel like a kid on christmas eve. Now that IS pure joy!!!

This time it is a visit from Amerika that is making me exited!! The instrumental postrock band from Massachusetts , CASPIAN , is having a concert on FRIDAY 13.JUNE  in Las Palmas , PAPER CLUB !!!

Wow,WoW,Wow !!!!

If you haven’t heard of them ,  check ’em out ! If you are on the Island that day, check ’em out !

It is sooooo worth it!

Yeas, You Can Shop On Gran Canaria

I guess the summer holiday is over now as the schools are “back in business “. August is still the warmest month down here in Gran Canaria and soon the island will be filled with tourists trying to escape the harsh , brutal KING WINTER.

Thank god for a stable climate !!!

We don´t get snow down here..uh that´s not true…that has actually happened up in the mountains…ughh…NOT OFTEN TOUGH 😉

But if you live down here you do actually need a bit warmer clothes down here in the winter season.

The south of the island is the warmest all year around, but when it comes to shops in general it is definitely better to go up north.

in the south you dont get the selection , the fashion , the scoops! And even tough it is rather cheap, it is cheaper up north.

So many shops, not enough money 😉

ZARA , STRADIVARIUS , PRIMARK , just to mention some. And now with the fall arriving quicker than the summer usual do, we all need t renew our wardrobe. That goes for BOTH men and women 😉

I Scream For Ice cream

A couple of days ago we went walking around in the little fish village Arguineguin, based in the south of the Island. As many times before we went up towards the Ancora center. But this time we realized that we actually had never tried the “new” ice cream cafe/bar. ( it has actually been there 1 year now, I think :/ )

Anyways. OMG ! This is definitely a MUST !!!

They have lovely Italian-style  ice cream, milkshakes, frappés, proper coffee etc. AND crépes that they make in front of you filled with lovely fresh strawberries and bananas, served with cream or ice cream of you own liking….mhmmmmmm……

You will find it on the left side of the center and the name is LOS ALISIOS.

We are so going back to this place and with this heatwave we are having now, maybe more then once a day 😉

The are open from Tuesday till Sunday from 2:00 – 22:00

Are you a Beliber?

Oh, no no no …I meant are you a BELIEVER? Do you believe that  there are more to life then what you can see ? More between heaven and earth ?

Open Mind Promotions is at the end of July holding demonstrations/workshops and readings with UK medium Paul Cissell 

here in the south of Gran Canaria.

One of the days workshop is developed to serving your personal development in a way that is practical, psychologically insightful as well as spiritually inspiring.

I think we all need some kind of guiding in these times we are in now. There is definitely a lot happening in our world and sometimes it is hard to feel like you are following the right path or are truly being true to yourself.

THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING ! 😀

However, if you want to attend the event you will have to reserve a place. Hurry up and DO it NOW !
