Photo Diary: Lanzarote Week One

lanzarote

If you follow me on any social media or saw my post about leaving Olive, you’ll know that I’m in Lanzarote!  I’ve been here 4 times now and I never get over how beautiful the island is. I always take many pictures while I’m here, but apart from the odd Insta post, no one really gets to see them. So this year I thought I’d share them with you guys.

I’ve been here one week so far. It feels like we’ve been here longer than that, but it’s gone super quick at the same time. But I’ve already been snapping away with my phone camera, so here’s week one in photos!

 

 

I always like taking pics of streets. Even at home. I don’t really know why, I just think sometimes there are nice simple views right in front of us, but we don’t notice them. So those are just some of Lanzarote’s streets for you.

 

The swimming pool has had a make over since we last stayed here.

It’s now an infinity pool and it’s beautiful! At night has to be my favourite view though. There’s lights that change colour. From blue, to green, to purple and red – the transitions are magical! I’m not good enough to capture it’s true wonderfulness, but here’s the mystical green and purple.

 

 

We’ve done a lot of walking so far, which is great as I love exploring! I took this next photo just before we walked down some very hot steps to the beach. (I took my shoes off too soon again, and hurt my feet a little. I’m just too eager. Which is ironic because I actually hate how sand feels on my feet, but I do still love the beach so I put up with it for the fun).

 

 

What a view! This was took along the harbour in the Old Town, which is definitely my favourite part of the island, and luckily we stay right by it.

 

Of course I’m throwing in a selfie.

It doesn’t look very touristy, because I took it just before we were going out one night. I’m not often a fan of front facing camera pics. My face just never looks right to me haha. And it usually takes me forever to get one or two I sorta like. But, I think I look cute here, so I shall post it everywhere. Maybe even print it out on posters and hang it in the streets.

 

 

Surprisingly, as I’ve ate so bloody much this week already, I don’t have any photos of food. That’s because as soon as it’s put down in front of me, it starts disappearing. A goal for next week is to try and get a picture of at least one meal before I devour it.

Anyway, because of the lack of food, here’s an amazing cocktail I had. (It’s a Margarita, in case you were wondering).

On Friday, we hopped on a ferry over to Fuerteventura.

It’s another one of the Canary Islands which we’ve been thinking of going too next year. Everyone who’s been told me it’s amazing, with old cobbled streets and beautiful scenery. But I have to admit, my heart is with Lanzarote. Maybe it was because we didn’t get to venture out much, and were just greeted by the many little shops and bars. There was a bus we could get into a small village which I regret not doing now because I might have a completely different view on the island if we had. Nevertheless, I had a lovely day! (Even though I was nearly sick coming back on the ferry…)

That was a little look into my first week in Lanzarote! It’s a little cloudy this morning, but it’s only early, and my phone’s forecast for today has lots of little suns.

I’m excited for more adventures! There’ll be a post on week two when I get home!
