Fuerteventura: Day 1



Unexpectedly, my friend Keka and Domingo decided to go to Fuerteventura which is one of the 7 islands in the Canary Islands. For our first day, we drove around the coast and went to the beach. These are the shots of our first day.















I love this shot. If you look into the sunglasses, you can see that the three of us are in the photo.




Literally, I was supposed to have returned to New York at this time, but I decided to stay longer in the Canary Islands and take advantage of the chance to see Fuerteventura


Have you ever made any last minute changes to your trip or vacation? 


Loved to hear about it :)


Oh, and hope you like the new look ;)

  11. I love the new look - I changed my blog design last week as well - sometimes I make those kind of changes - but I have never been brave enough to change trip plans.

    Your photos are wonderful - I absolutely love the colours of the ocean:):)

  12. You were right to stay a bit more, the scenery is amazingly beautiful!
    Never really changed my plans at the last minute, as I used to get everything fully organised.....but here I realise sometime it's good to let go and enjoy something different. Surely something I will try for my next trip!!!
    Love the new set up of your blog, brighter.

  15. It's absolutely beautiful! And so free of tourists! I could definitely go for lying on the beach right about now!

    We haven't been on a big trip in years, because my husband works in the (currently rather unstable) aerospace industry, so we've been worried about lay-offs. However, we've been to both Kansas City and Lindsborg, KS (Little Sweden, USA!) on the spur-of-the-moment and it's our goal this year to take one weekend a month and go explore somewhere that's close.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I can't wait to see your London photos!

  16. @ fishyfacedesigns: Thanks Lisa. I have been enjoying this time to go and see so many new places. When September comes, the traveling will slow down...

    @ dressingup-everyday: Oh, I've never been to Gran Canaria. I will be returning to the islands this summer. Hopefully, I will be able to see Gran Canaria...

    @ ecid nac*: It is a really nice place to go...

  17. @ Olga Walker: Thanks Olga. I'm so glad that you like the new look of the blog. It was time for a change. Yes, the water there was incredible!

    @ MarieHarmony: Thanks for the award! You are so sweet to remember me :)

    @ Duncan D. Horne: You need to show these pics to your dad; more is coming on Fuerteventura :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ SunnyToast: Yes, sometimes changes can be good or they can be tough. I'm following you back ;)

    @ Lauren Hairston: I love the idea of traveling once a month like that... Photos of London will be coming up soon :D

    @ nereealoves(: : Thanks!

  36. Looks like you are having a wonderful time with all that sun, sea and sand. I think the only time I changed holiday arrangements was on my honeymoon with my first husband. We went to Scotland, and the first couple of days, we were living it up, staying in a swanky hotel, buying clothes etc., then we ran out of money and had to come home early...what a bummer! I have really enjoyed scrolling down your blog, you are so right to travel. I am your newest follower, thankyou so very much for finding me, I am delighted to have found you. Love Linda x
