A few days of holidays and vacations need to enjoyed as much as possible and for us this means let everything behind us, take a break from our jobs explore, explore and explore.
This time the wing blew us to Gran Canaria, only a week, but a very intensive week spent on traveling around with our rental car, make a few short hiking tours, sit at the sun enjoying a coffee or a meal and visiting Las Palmas as well as other cities and villages.
We rented a flat in near Santa Brigida as this is a quite central place from where we had the possibility to reach all places of the island in a reasonable time, have dinner on the way or in Las Palmas and be home for a resting sleep.
The first day we planned to reach the Roque Nublo by the roads GC-15 and GC-600 and follow on of the trail to the natural Monument of the Roque Nublo and later to a small lake in the south.
After a night of rain, we found the best weather and a T-Shirt was more then enough even in January! The water in a big puddle inspired us to an unusual picture of this iconic place and holes in the rock made a great frame for the Roque Nublo.
