Moving your belongings to Lanzarote

One thing you will have to consider if you decide to move out permanently to Lanzarote is shipping over your belongings. When I first started to think about it before our move last December, my first thought was – where did we get all this stuff from?? And what are we going to do with all our stuff? I am referring to it as ‘stuff’ because it is stuffed in cupboards and drawers and the word ‘stuff’ covers a multitude of things that we carry with us.  I went on a feng shui course once where the trainer talked about ‘de-cluttering your life’ and another friend referred to our experience as a ‘life laundry’. One of the things the feng shui trainer said that stayed with me is that people leave their most expensive possession (a car) on the drive or on the road outside the house and then fill the garage with the least expensive things they own (bits of wood, half empty tins of paint, broken tools etc.)

Moving boxes

How you emigrate and move your stuff depends on your circumstances and your budget but this was our experience last year. First, I have to confess that I think I am a minimalist, de-clutter person and I love to throw things out, whereas my lovely husband, Robin, is an expert hoarder and keeps everything. And I mean everything.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, El Lago Verde

As we’re vegetarians, we don’t normally offer advice on good local restaurants that serve meat and fish but we had a memorable meal at El Lago Verde in the village of El Golfo.

The little village of El Golfo is famous for its fish restaurants. Its setting, right next to the coast, gives some spectacular views to enjoy with your meal. Many tourists go to see El Golfo, the famous green lake that is coloured by local minerals and algae. There is a huge car park and coach trips in particular seem to hit it in sequence after Los Hervideros. It seems that many of the coaches and cars then just turn round and go back after they’ve trekked to the green lake and miss the pretty village of El Golfo itself.
