Life in LanzarotePosted by mona lanjri Sat, June 09, 2018 14:03:35
Hello friends,

Yesss it took quite a long time before we had a real summer feeling (although yes off course it was still very nice weather compared to lots of other countries I know, I know).

When I came back from Belgium we had quite a few things to do, as well administration as cleaning our renting apartment, as helping some friends as lots of other stuff...

Although we planned some stunning visits, please check the images below:

This is a tradition in the Canarian Islands, it is called 'Alfombras de Sal' (Salt Carpets), they are made to celebrate 'Corpus Christi'. They are all made near to the churches and everyone can help, there are lots of salt in different colors and everyone can help a hand...



Original clothing for Corpus Christi day :


And the 'Communion' from the children, they walk (also on the salt carpets) with the Priest around the village and it's celebrated by musicians :


We went for a stunning walk to find the 'Lanzarote's Secret Garden', I suppose you can imagine why it's called that way. It is honestly a nice but difficult walk, which took us for over 4 hours, but what we found was so amazing that we didn't regret a single moment, take a look :

We started here :



When we thought we'd found it...we didn't...some nice boys in a Jeep told us : 'you like hiking?' well 'look it is behind the mountain'... So we stand (photo under), where I took the picture... @ that single moment we thought 'Ooooo my Gooooooddd do we really have to get over that beach and mountain again??'... but as we were brave ;-) we continued...

Do you see the sign ? And yes, we walk and walk and walk...hehe...


Yeeesss, finally we see the Secret Garden @ the end of the (very very stunning) beach ! Yet we are not arrived ;-) now go down the hill and discover...



C y soon !
