I'm on holiday!

How lucky am I to live on a tourist destination. A good friend of mine always goes somewhere warm for holidays in November to avoid some of the darkness and cold of Norway, and this year since I am now living here on Gran Canaria, her trip went here! So these days I am holiday'ing with her, and enjoying it so much! She's on the south side of the island (she got a great package deal with flight+hotel, with room for me too) so we've just been disconnected from the real world, going to the beach, having lovely meals, and talking and talking for hours. 

We go 13 years back and I can't tell you how happy I am to hang out with an old friend. I love new friends too, but there's just something very nice and comfortable about being around someone who's known you for so long, someone who's been with you through the changes that life has presented for you over a long period of time. Just  like it was so so wonderful having my other friend visiting me in Barcelona in September

Her hotel is in the area of one of my favourites on this island: Maspalomas, where the sand dunes are. It is SO BEAUTIFUL!! I love walking on the sand dunes, they go on and on and you can't see where they end. It's like a mini desert. Very nice.




So, I just wanted to stop by to say hi, and wish all of you a lovely week!

  3. Der gikk vi nå i august. Helt fantastisk! Vi endte med å gå stranda helt fra fyrtårnet og inn til playa del ingles. Herlig med bølgene som bruste rundt bena når vi gikk der. Ååå jeg vil tilbake!! Du må nyte sola og varmen alt du bare kan. Her hagler det i strie ekle strømmer og det er surt og kaldt. Skulle gjerne byttet plass med deg hehe

    1. Å gå tur i vannkanten er noe av det beste jeg vet å gjøre, jeg gjør det hver dag på Las Canteras (stranda i Las Palmas)- det er herlig! Og fra fyrtårnet til Playa del Ingles er langt! Men for en nydelig tur!
