Lanzarote People - Stan Arnold

We wrote about Stan’s books here: Local author Stan Arnold, so we decided to catch up with him recently in Playa Blanca to find out more about him, and to hear his thoughts on Lanzarote.

Stan is originally from Warrington and he had an interesting and varied career. For many years he toured as part of a rock band, and then he graduated to adding humour into his performances – think Billy Connolly or Jasper Carrot – with a mix of music and amusing stories. At one time he was performing, often as forces bases, 20 nights a month, and also appearing on Radio 4 and occasionally on television. The arrival of alternative comedy in the 1980’s persuaded him it was time to stop performing and to start writing, and he became a successful copywriter, with several large blue chip companies as his clients.

Stan partially retired five years ago, married his then girlfriend and moved to the sunshine of Lanzarote, following a holiday where he fell in love with the island.  read more »

This kind of thing happens about once every five or six years!

Normally, Atlantic storms are carried well north of The Canaries and head up into Europe. In this case we caught the edge of it.

But don’t worry – Lanzarote is still the best place in Europe for winter sun!

That’s because we aren’t really in Europe at all – we’re only 64 nautical miles from the Saharan coast of Africa and we’re as far south of Madrid as that city is from London!

Our typical winter weather is plenty of sunshine, daytime temperatures from 22 to 25 degrees,  read more »

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.
