Ten Myths About Living In Lanzarote


It’s always sunny and hot!

It does rain during the winter here, and we do get cloud from time to time. It can even get chilly in mid winter – as low as 15 degrees! What we don’t get is any extreme weather at all. It’s rarely too hot, and almost never too cold – just warm and pleasant, whether it’s January or July. Put simply, we do have the best weather in the world!

Nobody works very hard

Another common myth which simply isn’t true.  read more »

Average Briton Has Unrealistic Expectations Of Retirement

New research by life insurance and pensions company Aegon suggests that most Britons expect to live a far more lavish lifestyle in retirement than their pensions savings will allow.

The report, a survey of over 4,000 British workers (the third in a series of surveys conducted over the last 12 months) discovered that the average Briton expects to retire at age 63, with an annual income of £42,000. In reality, the average savings within the sample group were expected to yield a retirement income of just £11,400 - less than half the UK average wage of £26,500.

Despite comprehensive changes to the pension system in recent months, and the expansion of auto-enrollment, most British workers were unaware of a number of key relevant facts concerning the performance of their savings, the level of state pension payments they would be entitled to, and how best to maximise their retirement income.

UD Lanzarote 1 CF Arucas 1

The Rojillos are one of only two teams who remain unbeaten after their first five games, the other side being league leaders Santa Brígida but they will be bitterly disappointed to have made it three draws in a row in a game they dominated.

UD Lanzarote Miguel Gomez

The Gran Canarian side are famous within all the Canary Islands for their dark rum and I don’t mean that honey rum stuff.  It is called Ron Arehucas normally mixed with coke; locals like to call it Amariilo y cola. One glass is nice but takes its time going down; the next oozes down the throat at a gallop then you normally lose count.

It did seem that the Gran Canarian side must have given Lanzarote a crate load the night before as the Rojillos were not in this game at all in the opening 25 minutes. Possession belonged to Lanzarote but it was the Gran Canarian side that always looked the more threatening.

At least three good opportunities went beckoning for the visitors before they took the lead including a thunderous strike from the edge of the box which produced an incredible fingertip reflex save from the Lanzarote keeper Agoney.

In the 21st minute Arucas took a deserved 0-1 lead. A low powerful cross from left winger Moisés found team mate Iván Suárez who seemed to have so much time on his hands that he could have poured himself an amarillo y cola before neatly planting the ball wide of Agoney into the bottom corner to give his side the lead.

This goal brought Lanzarote to life and in the  read more »
