Well, you certainly have plenty of choice when it comes to choosing souvenirs in Lanzarote. There is everything from the most tacky plastic things to more expensive original artwork. There is a souvenir to suit every pocket and most people’s taste. In the markets in Marina Rubicón, Playa Blanca (every Wednesday and Saturday) and at the big Sunday market in Teguise, you can see plenty of examples of clothes, jewellery and toys to take home.

One Year On Lanzarote

I first met Ray before he moved to Lanzarote, he was on a four year plan to move to the island coming on holiday twice a year and normally staying in Puerto del Carmen.

We used to meet for a coffee whilst he would pick my brains, asking questions about living here, setting up a business and general life in Lanzarote. Then 2010 arrived and it was the year of the move when they would relocate from the UK to Lanzarote, Ray and partner Jen arrived on the 26th August.

We met for lunch last week and we were chatting about their approaching first anniversary and it was my turn to ask the questions.

Ray & Jen

I wanted to know if they still missed anything from the UK?  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Emmax

Earlier this month we wanted to treat ourselves to a nice lunch at a good restaurant and Emmax came to mind. We parked without any difficulty close to the promenade in Playa Honda even though the weekly Saturday rastro market had just finished, we were in luck there was a table available in the shade on the terrace.

This restaurant is owned by Max and Mortiz, they specialise in Italian cuisine with an Asian fusion, there is always homemade pasta, fresh fish, meat and vegetarian options on their menu.
