Ladies Cycling For Charity On The Island This Week

Jacqui Moore is one of our regular readers and visits the island often. She arrives again this week with a group of friends who have raised over £11,000 for charities by riding their bikes through various parts of Europe. They are planning a series of rides starting at Lagomar in Nazaret later this week, and everyone is welcome to join them or to make a donation to Cancer Research.

Book Your Christmas Car Hire For Lanzarote Early

Lanzarote always runs out of hire cars at Christmas! In fact at peaks times like half term, mid summer and carnival season you’ll rarely find a small hatchback to hire, although some of the more expensive convertibles or luxury cars might still be available.

The Man Behind The Lanzarote Videos

We have been featuring Jalle F’s videos of Lanzarote for some time now – we love his work, and he makes them for the sheer pleasure they give him and viewers, rather than for any commercial benefit.

1/ Where are you from?

I'm from Norway, and grew up in the beautiful city of Stavanger on the south west coast, but I now live in the small town of Jessheim in the eastern parts of this wonderful country.

2/ What kind of work do you do?

Currently not working, but the last 20 years, some years as Staffing and Payroll Manager at Oslo Airport and many years as Destination Manager in the travel industry in Spain, Greece and Turkey. In Spain, mainly Lanzarote over several winter seasons, but also the other Canary Islands and Majorca. In Greece, many of the amazing islands, from east to west and from north to south. And Marmaris in Turkey.

Greenpeace Protest At Oil Drilling Site Turns Nasty

The Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise occupied the planned oil drilling area yesterday in the early hours off the coast of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, prior to the arrival of a Repsol drilling vessel, Rowan Renaissance, accompanied by an unidentified Spanish Warship.

As you can see from the video released by Greenpeace, Arctic Sunrise refused to move from the area when ordered to do so by the warship.

Things turned ugly later, when vessels from the navy ship rammed Arctic Sunrise’s own ribs as they tried to get in close to the drilling vessel. Here’s another Greenpeace video showing the incidents:  read more »
