    Getrennte Wege

    November 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Nach langem Überlegen sind wir zu dem Schluss gekommen, dass es am besten wäre wenn Marlon schon mal vor fliegt und ich auf Gran Canaria bleibe und weiter nach einem Schiff suche. Gerade ist tatsächlich eine ziemlich schlechte Zeit um billig den Atlantik zu überqueren, da gerade die ganzen Schiffe von der ARC (atlantic Race for cruisers) den Hafen blockieren und alle Schiffe die einen für unter 2000€ mitnehmen würden fernhalten. Deshalb bleibe ich noch bis wahrscheinlich Dezember hier und dann schau ich Mal weiterRead more

    November 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Nachdem wir herausgefunden haben das die ARC doch nichts für uns ist, (wegen zu hohen Kosten) beschlossen wir uns aufzuteilen. Nico will sein Ziel, mit dem Schiff den Atlantik zu überqueren, verfolgen und bis Dezember warten, ich jedoch will so schnell wie möglich nach Süd Amerika. Nun schauen wir, das wir uns in Süd Amerika wiedersehen.Read more

    Gran Canaria

    December 15, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Auf Gran Canaria habe ich nur die Fähre gewechselt, da ich letzten Winter hier einen ganzen Monat verbracht habe, und erlebe beim Schreiben dieser Zeilen, dass mein Womo sich mit dieser Katamaranfähre schneller übers Wasser bewegt als wir es im Schnitt über Land schaffenRead more

    Jaa die Kabinenpost ist auch immer witzig. Schon zwei mal ist es mir passiert, das ich bei meiner Kabine angekommen bin und an der Türe Post für mich war. Wie ihr unten auf dem Foto sieht, so hängt die dann dort. Sieht sehr witzig aus. Da kam unter anderem die AIDA Zeitung in der alles wichtige darin steht wie wann ist welches Restaurant offen etc.Read more

    The Canary Islands

    November 18, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    On November 18, after two days at sea, we docked at Las Palmas, the capital of Grand Canary Island. Grand Canary is Spanish territory and the influence is everywhere, from the buildings, to the language and, of course the food. It is the 5th largest urban area in Spain with a population exceeding 700,000 and is purported to have the best climate in the world. Christopher Columbus spent a little time chillaxing here in 1492, the year he discovered America and proved his, "The world, she's a rounda" theory.

    We had about six hours ashore, so we took our time and strolled the 5.6 kilometers into the old part of the city, admiring the architecture and the cathedral. This one was built between 1500 and 1570, but I once again refused to pay for admission and save my €10.00. I can look at the photos of the inside online. It's a matter of principal.

    The historic center was fairly small and we were able to see most of it in pretty short order, so we again slowly made our way back to the ship and awaited our 7:00 PM sailing time.

    I made the mistake of wearing my Xero sandals today. They're very minimalist and are nothing more than a thin layer of rubber held onto my feet by nylon straps. Usually I'm OK to walk long distances in them, but the streets and sidewalks here are all paved with uneven ceramic mosaic tiles. I could feel every one of them through my soles. By the time I got back to the ship, my dogs were screaming at me and I couldn't wait to put them up.

    All in all, I'm glad we stopped here today. I'd always been curious about the Canary Islands, but traveling here from Canada is not too high on most people's radar. It's very pretty, but as with most island nations, fairly expensive. The only thing priced lower than in mainland Spain were the plantanas de Canarias, pint sized bananas that sold for around €2.00/kg in Seville but could be had for as little as €0.50 here.

    Despite having the best climate in the world, Las Palmas was a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

    Day 6 - Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

    November 4, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Arrived at around 7.00am. Weather overcast but warm. Looking forward to leaving the ship after 2 days at sea. Getting a little stir crazy.
    Breakfast at 8.00am then taking excursion entitled Essence of Gran Canaria. Not for the immobile, yeah, no walking sticks or frames!
    Coach left at 9.00am and we travelled up up up into the Bandama Crater to the top of the island. Some hair raising driving right on the edge of the road before arriving at the top about1500 feet looking right down on the island below. Took some great pics before making our way down to Santa Brigida. Walked around the town - some nice buildings plus the ubiquitous Church and to the House of Wine Museum. This was a really good stop. We sat down and were served with boiled tatties, cheese, crisp bread, olives
    and a lovely sauce called Mojo Palmero based on red peppers. Also they gave 3 samples of the wine they produce, red, rose and white. Very nice.
    Then back down to Las Palmas for the Columbus museum and a walk around. Museum was okay but not really that interesting. Back to ship for lunch - ice cream and an apple!
    Sun bathing and had a swim in the Lido pool. Only one in initially then the a number of others decided it was safe to go in so I got out! Flies, hundreds and thousands of the bloody things. It's like a plague sent by God and they are everywhere. Destined to stay on board for the next few ports, they are a real pain.
    Back to room and off to gym for a short session. I've picked up a cold and not feeling 100%. Only did 10 mins run and 15 mins on bike.
    Got ready for meal tonight in the Grill Restaurant, the ships a la carte restaurant. Fantastic meal. I had scallops, followed by cod, and an amazing 7 different dark chocolate pudding. J had Cauliflower and sesame soup, followed by Courgette stuffed with quinoa and apple crumble. Very well served and great surroundings. Shame about the BLOODY flies!
    Then we looked for our formal night photos. Eventually found them and they were really good. At 16.95 each they should have been! It was buy 3 and get the 4th free so ended up paying £45 for 4 pics. Good lord above! Also bought another photo taken just before we boarded in Soton.
    Feeling tired we gave the show a miss and sat on the balcony to watch the ship depart Gran Canaria en route for Tenerife.
