Greetings from Spain! I mentioned in last week’s post that Mark and I moved up our summer holiday from the end of August to this week and it turned out to be a great decision for a few reasons. First, it made the global news but London reached 40°C earlier this week for the first time and as that is over 100°F that would have been absolutely boiling in our flat without air conditioning. Instead we were on the beach in the high 70s, low 80s with a great breeze.
The second reason was that we both needed a change of scenery. Unlike most trips we have simply been going day by day with only flights and hotels booked when we got on the plane on Saturday. Visiting the Canary Islands has been on my list for years and with a few islands to choose from I narrowed it down by looking for direct flights from England and islands with Marriott hotels so we could cash in many of the points we have been building up from credit card charges and other travels.
Thus, we chose two islands – for the first half of our trip we are staying on Fuerteventura and we have had a nice few days here. Yes, I know there are tons of amazing things to do on the island and we only scratched the surface but lounging and reading two books (here and here) in three days was more what we needed rather than running around trying to see everything. Take a look at my Fuerteventura recap:
