Have A Good Travel

Vueling Airlines is a Spanish Airline headquartered in Barcelona. It was actually established in 2004, but its just recently gotten known, probably because at the moment it is the second largest airline in Spain.

It is sort of like Ryan Air , just a bit more customer friendly.  It is one of the cheapest. Well at least if you are going to /  living on a island 😉

Their planes seems to be weirdly small and there is no fancy entertainment or menu. But who cares. As long as you can save a fortune and don´t have the extra stress, some airlines add to your travel.

Most of their flights have to do a changeover in Barcelona. Do make sure you don’t have to wait for hours. We did not do that ….. and ended up waiting in Barcelona for 6 hours !!!!!!

Thank god that airport has a “garden” where you can relax in the sun. A charger station for your mobile, music player, gamer and loads of celebrity’s passing trough everyday.

Psssst…. we saw U-21 F.C Barcelona 😀

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 !

Fiestas Del Carmen

If you have visited Gran Canaria before or are living here, you know it seem to always be a fiesta of some sort down here.

In Arguineguín and Puerto de Mogán the Fiestas del Carmen in July are very important. This is when the local residents take the statue of the Virgin Mary in a maritime procession from one end of the coastline of the municipality to the other, with a multitude of boats specially decorated for the occasion following the procession.

And THIS year it is the 100 anniversary. ( 1913 – 2013 )

Here you can find the whole program –> PUSH

However, DO NOT MISS the famous water parade “Bajada de la Rama ” on Saturday 20th July !!!!!!! Meet up at the park PINO SECO in Arguineguin (the street down from Hiper Dino ) at 18:00 o´clock ! Bring some drinks and prepare to get WET !!!

A little tip : put your mobile phone, money etc. in plastic bags with a zipper 😉
