Gran Canaria – Conclusion

Gran Canaria is a fascinating island with a lot to explore! The north of the island is full of Spanish people and it is hard to find English speakers. So if you want to visit this part, you should know some Spanish phrases.

Gran Canaria day 6 and 7 – Let’s get naked!

On this day I went to the Yumbo center in the morning to get some breakfast. I also got some souvenirs, a beach towel and some postcards. After that I went back and got ready for the beach. I had one big goal for this day – go nude on the beach! I mean honestly, I am far away from my home and nobody knows me here.

Fortunately she booked a place to stay for me via Airbnb in …

After that I walked to the breakwater near the beach and found some black cats. I think they are living in the breakwater. Unfortunately they were too …

Gran Canaria day 2 – The journey to the middle of nowhere

I woke up, a bit confused in the first place, but I remembered quickly why I was where I was. I used the shower, provided in the room with trying everything to not think about what people did in it already and packed my stuff afterwards. Then I was saying goodbye to Habi and his girls and went to Santa Catalina. It was a very nice and warm morning and I had a lovely walk on the beach. The water there was very clear but I couldn’t go inside, as I had no idea where I could have left my …
