... we deflated our bcd's and went under with our regulators in our mouth, we popped our ears and maintained neutral buoyancy. As we started diving I felt the water rush past as a school of fish go by. Then we saw a gap Damion stuck his hand in front of it and squid came rushing past. We settled down to our skills Flooded mask clearing Tank valve tow Neutral buoyancy Ceaser The flooded ...
thx to the internet i found tortheus on fuerteventura, one of the canary islands.
together with my dear brother we flew there, picked him up and 2 hours later caught the ferry to cadiz. 40hours of stormy weather have asked for it's toll ;-) but another 2 1/2 days later we arrived in austria where tortheus went into hibernation for around 4 months.
this gave me enough time to prepare all necessary ...
... friends, but I was leaving for Lanzarote, another Canary Island, the next day!
On Wednesday I headed to catch the ferry across to Lanzarote and after a short, but rocky ride across the water, I arrived at my new destination. It was cheaper to fly back to mainland Spain from Lanzarote than Fuerteventura, and I figured it would be cool to visit another island anyways!
Stay tuned for more stories of my adventures! And boy oh boy, did I have many adventures in Lanzarote!! ;)
This is the first blog since we left Hong Kong on the 2nd October last year (2011) so it feels strange to be typing again. I have been very lazy for the last 9 months and it would be a mammoth task to describe everything that has happened in that time so I will try to summarise briefly.(I can hear the disbelieving laughter)
As we had planned, we visited family and friends in the UK before settling here in Lanzarote for the winter. ...
... then positioning them side by side while we took guesses as to which one was the biggest. One weighed in at 190kgs and the winner weighed 201kgs. Celebrations went on for quite a, while!
Our celebrations though were saved for our very own "Belle Helene" who decided to click over another "40 - something" year. Another "Jamie Oliver Breakfast" from Chef Christof, presents ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Globales Costa Tropical Fuerteventura
Loved the hotel
We went to the Costa Tropical in September 2006 for 2 weeks. We enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms were basic but we only slept in them. The food was very good and a good variety. The staff were very friendly and helpfull especially Natallie, Emillie, Maria, Sharon and Rubin on reception. It could do with a bit of updating. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere but we wanted a quite and relaxing holiday so it was fine. It is within walking distance of Caletta and buses and taxis are very cheap. A very good holiday and we would go back.
Acabo de regresar de uno barato reservado por medio de Teletext, con mi marido, hija (7 años) y bebé (18 meses). El hotel es adorable. Las camareras de piso limpiaban todo el lugar diariamente, estaba impecable, la piscina era enorme con bastantes tumbonas y una piscina para bebés (de nuevo, impecable), las habitaciones eran de buen tamaño y todas tenían vista al mar y a la piscina. A 5 minutos de traslado desde el aeropuerto, que después de un vuelo de 4 horas y 10 minutos ¡era maravilloso!
Acabo de regresar de unas vacaciones de 7 noches, equipadas, por medio del internet. Con todo, las instalaciones eran muy promedio. Está bien para usarlo como base (¡en el medio del nuevo complejo!) y tiene una piscina enorme. Te recomiendo que alquiles un coche y que salgas a pasearte por ahí. Hay servicio de transporte gratuito desde el hotel hasta la playa local Caleta De Fuste. El servicio era muy rápido al principio, pero para el final de la semana, el autobús de regreso de la playa al hotel ¡nunca apareció! Aunque los taxis son muy frecuentes, por alrededor de 3 euros, desde la ciudad al hotel. Comimos fuera la mayoría de las noches en la ciudad, en sólo algunos lugares, todos con buena relación calidad-precio. No probamos el bar del hotel ni el bufé, pero escuchamos que la comida estaba un poco desalentadora :-(
Just back from a 7 night, self-catering, internet holiday. All in all, very average accomdation. Its fine to use as a base (in the middle of new development!) and it does have a massive swimming pool. Recommend hiring a car and getting out and about. There is a free shuttle bus from the hotel to the local beach in Caleta De Fuste. The service was very prompt as first, but towards the end of the week, the return bus from the beach to the hotel didn't turn up! Taxi's though are really frequent, about 3 Euros, from town to the hotel. We eat out most nights in town, only a few places, all good value though. We didn't use the hotel bar or buffet, but heard the food was a little grim :( Recommend Correlljo, Jandia and Betancuria (in mountains) as great days out, fantastic beachs and views. Good mini supermarket, on-site, well stocked, if you fancy cooking!!?? Overall 6/10 for accomodation, clean, basic, a little tired looking. 8/10 for sun, beaches and relaxation! It is * to ** star hotel remember!!
Ho soggiornato in questo aparthotel nella prima settimana di agosto, acquistando da Todomondo un conveniente pacchetto volo + pernottamento + noleggio auto. Il resort si trova a Nuevo Horizonte, un paio di chilometri a nord della località turistica di Caleta de Fuste e dalla spiaggia di El Castillo e qualche chilometro a sud dell'aeroporto di Puerto del Rosario. La clientela è internazionale. Il mare è visibile dalle terrazze degli appartamenti, ma non è raggiungibile a piedi; è a disposizione dei clienti una navetta gratuita che porta alla spiaggia di El Castillo. Suggerisco questa sistemazione soltanto come base per esplorare l'isola di Fuerteventura con un mezzo proprio e in autonomia, mentre la sconsiglio senza dubbio per una vacanza stanziale ed esclusivamente balneare, in quanto il resort è piccolo, isolato dai centri di divertimento e con un'animazione pressoché inesistente. Ottima soluzione invece per chi volesse conoscere le Canarie orientali in libertà, in quanto l'aparthotel è in posizione centrale sull'isola (comoda per raggiungere sia le dune di Corralejo a nord che le magnifiche spiagge della Penisola di Jandia a sud) e riunisce tutti i vantaggi di un appartamento (indipendenza, autonomia nei pasti, tranquillità) ai comodi servizi di un hotel (pulizie giornaliere con cambio biancheria, reception, piscina, minimarket, telefoni pubblici, sportello ATM). Inoltre, per chi lo desideri, in loco è possibile scegliere la formula mezza pensione, pensione completa o all inclusive; non ho informazioni sulla qualità della cucina perché non ho mai usufruito del servizio ristorante. Alcuni appartamenti sono nell'edificio principale, altri sono dislocati in più spaziosi e tranquilli bungalow a due piani.
we arrived at this hotel about 10pm the reception was fine a good check in and really friendly staff we were on the second floor room 229 over looking the pool area and tennis courts which were good, the room was very spacious and kept clean the only probs was the uncomfy beds which did creek alotand there was a little bit of rust at the bottom of the bath but it was nothing too unsightly and the shower was ok.
I would like to write an honest opinion of this hotel, as it is always nerve racking when you dont know a resort.
I'm only back from a cheapie booked through teletext with my husband, daughter (7) and baby (18 mths).
