Family Vacation in Lanzarote

Yesterday the Muxxy family set out for our annual vacation. Destination: Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. Our taxi took us to the airport a few hours before we were due to board. The flight was mostly fine, except as we descended to land, my daughter’s ears didn’t adjust to the change of altitude, so many tears of pain were shed. A flight attendant brought her a cup of something to sniff. It smeeled like teatree oil and it eventually did the trick.

We landed at around 8.30 pm and had a half hour wait for our luggage before we caught a coach to our resort. We were the 4th stop so it wasn’t a terribly long ride. We booked into the hotel by about 9.30 and sorted our apartment before heading for a late evening snack. We are all inclusive so we can eat and drink as much as we like. There is a lot of choice and the children can try many different things they wouldn’t usually eat. Of course, us adults can consume as much holiday alcohol as we wish. We’re not big drinkers but it’s nice to be able to help ourselves when the mood takes us.

Going back to our new home for the next 11 days we sorted the beds out, refreshed ourselves and settled the kids in for the night. Waking up in the morning I was keen to check out the view as we have an upstairs apartment with a balcony. I wasn’t disappointed.

We went for breakfast at the terrace restaurant. We have a choice of 8 different places to eat at this complex, all inclusive. The food is excellent.

I am currently sat on the beach, posting this on my phone through the WordPress app, using @steempress-io’s excellent plugin.

The kids have a spade each and a float and are having a whale of the time. This beach is exclusive to our resort thanks to the sea walls, the water is very calm with only gentle waves, ideal for children. They’re also having fun watching the many fish in this lagoon.

I discovered yesterday that @surfermarly is on this island and got in touch with her. We plan to meet up some time next weekend for a little drink or two and a mini Steem meetup. I’m very much looking forward to it.

Well, that’s enough for now. I have some relaxing and family time to catch up with.

Thanks to the @thewritersblock crew for taking care of business while I am away. Thanks also to the rest of the @noblewitness team, including @anarcho-andrei, @rhondak and @sircork.
