The People

Julie Cliffe-Jones Mike Cliffe-Jones

Julie Cliffe-Jones                             Mike Cliffe-Jones

Our main writers are Jules and Miguel, better known as Julie and Mike, much to the disappointment of some female readers who had hoped Miguel was a doe eyed Canarian hunk!

Julie and Mike are Brits who have lived on the island for over fourteen years and who get involved in as much of Lanzarote life as they can. Having brought up two children on the island, and run several businesses, they are in a good position to help others with their in depth knowledge about Lanzarote and life here.

They believe in making the most of living in paradise, and you'll find them at events and attractions all over the island, all the time! They are both triathletes and scuba divers, avid readers and they love good food and great company.
