Holidays in Fuerteventura

2

This was the first big trip for me and 'the lady', which was decided one night with friends and drinks. This was it, we're gonna go to The Canaries! Fuerteventura is the oldest from the Canaries. The place is a surfing paradise. The landscape is perfect too!

First thing was to find the house of our dream vacation for the planned week. Easy game, we found a villa with a swimming pool in the middle of nowhere for us. Google maps only showed us a football area, nothing else really visible. This was perfect. The village is called Lajares and is in the north of Fuerteventura Island. A low cost company’s flight later and we were in that windy island!

This Island is the oldest from the Canaries. It’s really flat like Belgium so I wasn’t disappointed. What really differs from Belgium is the weather from 20 to 30°C all year long. This is due to the Sirocco, with its hot wind coming from the Sahara. Cactus, sand and wind for everyone!

There are a lot of foreigners in Lajares. There’s even a French pancake bar. Really good pancakes in fact! The landscape, we had in the morning, was so beautiful! A few mounts, mucho desert and no noise are so relaxing! When you approach the road, you see a bunch of old VW vans with surfboards on the top. Volcanic sand and white sand on the different beaches, blue lagoon and hot water was there everyday. It’s also a paradise for kite surfers. That wind and that beach, are impossible to resist! There are some nice spots for surfers with wonderful waves and the nature for only viewer! Next time, I’ll try surfing!

For the moment, it’s a place where I could retire when I will be older! Check It!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
