A Reader Writes - Lanzarote Buggy Tour

Regular reader Stuart Bodgers went out on a buggy tour on his most recent visit to the island, and he shared his experience for all of us.

I've been coming to Lanzarote since around 1994. or thereabouts and having always hired a car, I would say I know the island extremely well. I am a keen photographer too and have always sought out unusual places on the island to document and thus, my knowledge of ‘hidden Lanzarote' is better than most regular visitors. So although we don’t live there, we both feel we know the geography better than most.

This year we came away not on 'holiday' but on 'honeymoon' and yet again Lanzarote did not disappoint in any way. It was another fabulous visit to the island we love and it was wonderful to meet up with people we've known for years.  read more »

Arucas CF 1, UD Lanzarote 1

Lanzarote’s stuttering start to the season continues as they earn just their third point in their last four outings. With striker Dani López leaving the club and with Captain Rosmen who has been out for three weeks through injury and will not be returning for at least a month there is no doubt the Rojillos are lacking firepower upfront.

UD Lanzarote

The day did not begin well for manager Adolfo Pérez with defender Raúl unable to travel due to illness just hours before the flight to Gran Canaria. Fran Gil was drafted into the starting line up for his first game of the season, the Lanzarote centre back had been out with a minor knee injury and a hernia operation.

The opening half hour was even with possession though Lanzarote had three opportunities with Kennedy, Marcos Cabrera and Ayoze Pérez all coming close to breaking the deadlock.

In the 33rd minute Louis Kennedy was only a whisker away from celebrating his 23rd birthday with a goal but his strike from the edge of the area went inches wide of the keeper’s right hand post.

Three minutes later and Arucas striker Omar Rodríguez saw his effort come back off the left hand post and just before the break the hosts again came close with a header as they went into the break on the front foot.

Three minutes into the second half and a defence splitting one two let in Omar Rodríguez . The Gran Canarian striker who has just returned to the island from his stint with Real Madrid under 18´s slid the ball beyond Rojillos keeper Alejandro Martín and inside the right hand post to give the second from bottom side a 1-0 lead.

Lanzarote then had a couple of opportunities to level with Miguel Gómez creating chances for Ayoze Pérez and Toñito but they failed to convert the good work from Miguel.  read more »

Green Homes Project Seeks Crowd Funding

I met with Christophe last week, who is running a project on the island called Green Casa. The objective is to build four genuinely “green” properties on the island, complete with electric cars, for holiday letting, and to fund the project using crowd funding, where investors become shareholders in the company and get a return via involvement in the company's development policy, a share of  the profits of the company, capital gains on their equity shares, discounts on the use of the properties and for residents in Spain a tax deduction of 20% of their investment .

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Gula Gastrobar

La Gula Gastrobar caught our attention when it snatched the No1 TripAdvisor spot for the top restaurant in Costa Teguise.

La Gula Gastrobar

Having visited last night, we can see why it’s proving popular and it’s a welcome addition to our recommended dining list for that holiday resort. La Gula is situated on the edge of Pueblo Marinero, the front entrance is next to the Tourist Information Office, and the back entrance is in the walkway through to the square. 

La Gula Decor

The restaurant is inviting from the outside, I liked the cosy decor there are two dining rooms with an open kitchen, although the lighting is a little on the bright side. The staff are very welcoming, we were a group of six so our waiter explained that the dishes are created to share between two people. He recommended that we select 9 dishes to share, and helped with the portion sizes.  read more »

Renée Zellweger plays yet again Helen Fielding's ditzy but lovable character Bridget Jones.  As she enters her 40s and focuses on single life and her career, a minor hitch hinted by the title occurs. The problem is, there is only a fifty percent certainty of the identity of her baby's father.

Many actors resume their characters of the previous two films: Colin Firth as Mark Darcy, Gemma Jones &  read more »
