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!

Aye Aye Captain !!!

Mondays are usually the worst day of week, for me anyways. But if you are in the south on Gran Canaria it really doesn´t have to be.

EVERY MONDAY , there is now a music cruise. The Bob Gorman Music Cruise !!!

Live music! Real bands! Yeas, G.C have proper musicians, not only karaoke entertainers.

The boat, is the beautiful TIMANFAYA . A proper piratship!

Monday is finally a day you can start liking 😉 How about that !

There are a lot of different boat trips on the island, but this is one of a kind.

Live music with 3 bands, sometimes you might get a surprise aswell. A massive buffet, with all sorts of food and  there is a bar onboard. The stunning view is just amazing. And the lovely sunset changes every time.

  • The boat goes from Puerto Rico at 2.30, so be on time.
  • Cash is still king and therefore you can not use a card.
  • Untill the summer bring a sweater , the wind can be a bit cold of on the sea.
  • The boat does stop for 30 min and you are allowed to go for a swim.
  • There is a bar onboard , therefore it is not allowed to bring your own drinks
  • The most important thing : ENJOY  !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

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 😉

Follow You Heart

I was recently in a wedding, it was soooo nice! They had done it in their own style and fitted the couple perfectly! A bit of tradition with their own twist. Nowadays that is what it should all be about. Or?

There are many couples that comes down to get married on the Canary Islands. All year around. And of course , why not? The weather is nice, it is somewhat cheaper and so on and so on.

However, they all seem to look the same…

Sort of ish´ the same “beach wedding dress” or the big classic cream cake ones. Same reception place all of course decorated in white , same music, same,same, same!!!

If you where to marry the love of your life, would you not like it to be a bit special?? To sort of reflect the love and the persons you are?

I mean it is supposed to be only once ???

I know people expect it to be like this and this. “Oh, you should” , “Oh, you need to ” ….

In the end of the day, it is your BIG day. Do what you WANT. Not what you feel you have to.

It is a celebration of two peoples L O V E ❤
