I thought with the celebration of the new categories on Trybe I would do a post about my travels to Lanzarote this year. If you don’t know Lanzarote is a volcanic island (Canary Islands) off the coast of Spain. Lanzarote is a beautiful island with a dark past and a very depressing feeling to it in some areas.
I don’t want to focus on the depressing aspect too much however seen in many of the photos I will show you there is such a vast amount of desert and wasteland on this island but at the same time surrounded by beauty.
This first image is taken near the resort area so a very “beach resort” feeling to it. The palm trees and the friendly locals made this area a great place to stay and relax.
Here we travelled to the emerald lake. The green effect was formed by the minerals from the volcano when it was still active. The emerald lake is now a protected area, so this is as close as we were allowed, but it was still amazing to see.
Jameos del Agua was the most fantastic area for me (seen above) this was a cave that had a fine dining restaurant inside, and when you walked through the cave, you arrived at a beautiful lagoon. Jameos del Agua was just a jaw-dropping moment for me the photo doesn’t do it justice and it is a must-see for anyone who goes to Lanzarote.
We also travelled to the top of the volcano Timanfaya. I didn’t get any pictures of this unfortunately, but it was outstanding. On top of the volcano, they had built a furnace room where they cooked chicken naturally from the heat off the volcano. However, the floor was so hot inside many people couldn’t stay there for long.
I recommend Lanzarote at least once if you are looking for something with a different kind of history to it. There is so much to do, and as you can see, we loved being there.
