I decided a night in Puerto del Rosario might be good for a change of scene and I had an early flight in the morning. I probably should have listened more to what I'd been told, it's more industrial and not so enjoyable. Still it was a transit stop that helped me get to the airport in plenty of time, the bus being much more efficient than I'd expected.
Landing at the airport I quickly found that they only had one ATM and it was out of order and there was nowhere to exchange cash. So rather than getting the bus I was lumped with a taxi.
It was a small bump in what was a chilled five days in the little town of Corralejo in the north of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. It's a kiteboarding and surfing paradise so not quite my cup of tea but I really enjoyed the laid back vibe ...

Tonight ...
... and more musicians entertaining the crowds.We have visited some very diverse ports on this cruise, met some lovely people, enjoyed good food and apart from David bashing his knees and myself now having a cough and cold it had been a great start to the New Year.Now we can look forward to joining MS Braemar on another voyage in a few weeks time to West Africa & Cape Verde ...
