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!
