It can be a challenge for regular visitors to find new activities to do or places to visit in Lanzarote. We’ve got a very different suggestion for individuals, couples, friends or mums & daughters to try.
You may remember my visit to www.elisabethconcept.com I wrote about in September, Lisa can help people to make the most of their natural highlights by learning what fashion and colour schemes enhance their features.
Imagine having the confidence to walk into a clothes shop knowing which items are going to flatter, rather than getting frustrated and feeling dreadful in front of the fitting room mirror. I promise, it’s a real eye opener and a great experience to undergo with your favourite shopping companion. When you know the secret to which colours and styles suit you, clothes shopping becomes a pleasure, rather than a necessity.
You can book a colour changing experience as part of your holiday in Lanzarote, ElisabethConcept offers a range of different modules:
Classic colour analysis for women & men
Advanced including make-up & hair
Learning & mastering women’s styling
Men’s styling for business read more »

La Graciosa is one of the few places left on the planet without any tarmac roads. But there are cars there – mainly Land Rovers, with a smattering of pick ups and other 4 X 4’s. They are used to transport people and goods to different parts of the island, and they stick to the sandy “roads” that have been used since La Graciosa was first populated.
It might surprise you to know what there are around 100 vehicles in total on the island and there are two questions people often ask:
How do they get to the island?
The ferries which run between La Graciosa and Orzola are passenger only boats. So when cars, or any other very large items have to be moved, they are put on a large flat barge and towed across.
How are they ITV tested?
The ITV test is the Spanish equivalent of the MOT – cars are inspected either every two years, every year or every six months, depending on their age, for safety, emissions and correct operation. It would be too expensive to have to send cars to the larger island every year, so the ITV team from Lanzarote visits La Graciosa every six months, taking all their testing equipment with them. They spend a few days there, and work their way through every car that needs testing.

The Rojillos poor away form continues with just two points taken from their opening four matches in contrast to their 100% home record.
The game could not have began any better for Lanzarote with a cross come shot from leading scorer Rosmen sending his side into a 1-0 lead in the opening minute.
Unfortunately for the Rojillos it took just four minutes for the Tenerife side to level matters. The referee ordered a spot kick for a handball by a Lanzarote defender. Midfielder Joseph stroked it home to make the score 1-1.
Both sides had good chances to take the lead as the game was played in an open manner. Christian just failed to get on the end of a cross for the home side and Mauri went close from a header for the Rojillos, just before the break Lanzarote defender Luis hit the post with a header following a corner.
In the first minute of the second half things looked good for Lanzarote as read more »

Puerto del Carmen lost one of it’s characters today, when the body of Luis Miguel was discovered in the abandoned La Perla building.
Most of you probably didn’t know his name, but if we said a homeless man wearing layers of plastic bags on his feet, would you know who we mean?
It’s said that Luis Miguel became homeless after losing his family and that despite offers of help from well wishers and social services, he chose to remain on the streets. This homeless man was well known to read more »
