Reports say that the car was on a section of the road that should be driven by the special tour buses. Visitors are normally directed to the car park to board buses which drive around the single track within the Timanfaya National Park, it’s not clear how the hire car came to be on this restricted area.

Lanzarote Football, UD Lanzarote 1 UD Telde 0

11th March 2012

U.D. Lanzarote are refusing to give up on their quest for the final playoff spot by beating a direct rival who had won their four previous matches.

Unfortunately most of the other results went in favour of the teams competing for that fourth spot finish which means Lanzarote are still trailing that playoff position by seven points with only eight games remaining.

As tradition when the Rojillos play at home they always seem to be out of the blocks first and this was no exception. In the eighth minute a cross from Vladi was met with a strong powerful header by Ayoze, the pint sized goalkeeper proved that his agility was spot on as he instinctively tipped the ball over the bar.

A few minutes later and Ayoze was clearly brought down inside the area and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Jotha normally so lethal in from eight yards blasted his shot down the centre and the keeper reacted well and cleared the ball to safety.

The Gran Canarian team showed confidence following their 6-1 home win last week by defending well and then hitting their opponents on the break. In one instance Telde midfielder Echedey broke clear and only a good save from the Lanzarote keeper Ruymán prevented the visitors from going one up.

Autism on Holiday

It has been bothering me about how to approach the subject of Autism on holiday and it was while leafing through my latest copy of the National Autistic Society Magazine that inspiration struck.


If we learned the appropriate language response for saying “My child is not naughty, they have Autism” or similar our life would probably be a lot more simple when planning holidays.

How can we be expected to cope with other holiday makers staring at our children and local people tut-tutting us when our kids have a meltdown due to their routines being disturbed or the feel of sand in their toes?

So while planning a trip abroad with your ASD child in mind what should you consider?
