New Migrant Overwhelm?

Migration, permanent or temporary, from anywhere to anywhere is never easy. I’ve migrated from Australia, and I’ve lived in Fuerteventura for a full eleven days. What an eleven days! First up, I’ve come from a cold grey winter to bright warm sunshine, the maximum temperates double if not treble what I’ve been used to. ItContinue reading “New Migrant Overwhelm?”

Canary Islands Here I Come!

Back in June I wrote a post announcing I had submitted my residency application to live in Spain – https://isobelblackthorn.com/2022/06/10/moving-to-canary-islands-when-a-dream-comes-true/ Since then, I’ve been waiting two months to write this post. Two months anxiously waiting for my residency visa, and a month of that in limbo after I moved out of my former home andContinue reading “Canary Islands Here I Come!”

Moving to Canary Islands – When a Dream Comes True

It’s been a red letter week for me. After a six-week rigmarole pulling together all the necessary documentation for the Non Lucrative Residency visa to live in Spain (the new reality for all us Brits), I finally mailed the application. What a process! So much conflicting info online especially around translation and notarisation requirements. IContinue reading “Moving to Canary Islands – When a Dream Comes True”

Borders Open Borders Shut: When Will I Ever Get Back to the Canary Islands?

Canary Islands, all I can do is give you a wave from afar! I live in Victoria, Australia. Covid 19 cases are few but we don’t want any. We take a very hard line. Australia has become a gilded cage and there’s no sign of the cage opening any time soon. Hopes for travel byContinue reading “Borders Open Borders Shut: When Will I Ever Get Back to the Canary Islands?”

From Australia to the Canary Islands – I’m Halfway Around the World from Where I Want To Be.

I’m sitting at my desk all rugged up on a cold and sunny day. I’m a British-Australian living down under, and if you drove a spike through the centre of the earth from my place you would just about end up in the Canary Islands. Which is where I want to be. And can’t be.Continue reading “From Australia to the Canary Islands – I’m Halfway Around the World from Where I Want To Be.”

NO LAS DEJEN CAER

LAS ANTIGUAS RUINAS DEL PARAÍSO DE UNA ISLA DEL DESIERTO Antiguas granjas salpican el paisaje de toda la isla, especialmente en los pueblos del interior y sus alrededores.

Exploring Jandía

How could I forego the invitation to visit Punta Jandía, Fuertventura’s southern tip. I’d already passed up the opportunity to visit Villa Winter and the village of Cofete due to the nature of the drive. But I was reassured that the drive to Punta Jandía was straight and flat and no big deal at all,Continue reading “Exploring Jandía”

A Day in Gran Tarajal

On Thursday, I caught the bus to the Spanish seaside town of Gran Tarajal on Fuerteventura’s east coast. I knew I was in for an adventure, the bus journey alone amounting to almost an hour of door to door scenery. I am a real sucker for scenery. Only, so many times on the journey IContinue reading “A Day in Gran Tarajal”
