Lanzarote has an amazing array of restaurants and I would even do some of the best in the world. Here I start on the capital but there all over the island.
San Miguel De Teguise or Villa Teguise bears the name of the beautiful daughter of Guadafra, last king of the original inhabitants of Lanzarote, the Guanches. The Princess who married the knight who conquered the island for the crown of Castile, Jean (Maciot) De Bethencourt.
I’m following in the footsteps of adventures who have gone before me and no doubt others who will continue after me. I know I could just read a book or search Google to discover what others have done but I must see it for myself.
I couldn’t resist an unusual astronomical event, it was going to be a blue moon. I had heard the expression before but did not know the meaning behind it but now I do. A blue moon is the terminology given to a second full moon in the same month.
I managed to grab a siesta for a couple of hours on Friday before loading the bike, grabbing some snacks and heading towards my camping spot for the night. It was very windy outside and I had to pedal downhill to keep moving but within ten minutes of setting off I hit a speed bump badly and came off my bike.
A normal day can turn into a great adventure when you cycle to a volcano and then sleep on it for a night under the stars.
