Where in the world now..

No sooner had my feet touched the tarmac following a very busy time in Iceland, than they were airborne once more but this time heading south for a bit of R & R and sunshine therapy.  With repeat medical tests looming, the results of which I’m more than a little concerned about, getting away and forgetting all of that for a wee while seemed a smart move.

Where better for such a thing than the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura to be exact.  It’s currently 24 °c, that’s around 75 °f, not too hot and with a constant cooling breeze, it’s pretty near perfect for me and to be enjoying this in March is a real treat to be sure.  Thank heavens for budget airlines.

Traveling on the first day to a near deserted beach on the northwestern side of the Island, I came across this fairly iconic symbol.

SpacerPlease bear with me while I take this little break.  I’ll be visiting all your blogs and catching up once I’m back to a very cold, grey drizzly Cornwall in a few day’s time.  Feels like a million miles away just now not just a mere 2, 300 0dd miles.  See you soon.. :-)

  2. Must be a wind mill that Don Quijote overlooked—if he every ventured to Fuerteventura, that is. Enjoy the warm climate, and the special landscape. Quite a change from Iceland!

    • Thank you Otto. In many way’s Fuerteventura is so very different from Iceland, climate being the obvious but in many ways it is also so similar. These are both volcanic islands and I have been struck at times how similar the landscapes are. I’m definitely hoping for a few more good photo opportunities! :-)

      • I forgot that, but of course you are right. No wonder you have travelled to Fuerteventura!

  12. Don’t blame you Adrian!! I can’t wait to see the Greek windmills in June :-) Hopefully the weather will do you the power of good! Waiting for tests too so much empathy. Good luck with them and let us know how it goes. Until then, relax and enjoy the sunshine :-D

    • Thank you Sarah. I will certainly let you know how it all turns out. I hope that your tests go well also. The chance to get away rather than dwelling on things seemed a good idea. The sunshine is helping enormously. Can’t help feeling better when the weather is so good! :-)
