Fun Quiz: You Know You Are A Lanzarote Local.....

Here’s a fun quiz you can use to test just how much of a Lanzarote local you are. Those of you who have been visiting the island for years will score well on this one!

You know you’re a Lanza Local if:

1/ You have flip-flop shaped white bits on your feet.

2/ Your heart rate doesn’t increase when you approach a roundabout.

4/ You plan a barbecue for next Thursday, and the weather isn’t something you even think about.

5/ You don’t bat an eyelid when you run into your best mate at carnival and he’s dressed as woman with full make up, despite not having shaved for a week.

6/ You can't smell garlic on other people’s breath.

7/ Siestas just make sense to you.  read more »

Stop Complaining About Budget Airlines

The web is awash with people claiming budget airlines are ripping them off, and families bemoaning the fact that they didn’t pre book seats and the airline can’t then guarantee they will sit together.
