Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Today I want to write some impressions about Lanzarote. This island is not very far from Fuerteventura and you can go there with the ship. What we have done. The trip with a ship takes half an hour, but we have started earlier, because the port was on another end of Fuerteventura. We got there with a bus along the east coast, so I could see the sunrise over the ocean from beginning to the end. It's an awesome feeling, the pictures do not convey all this beauty and variety of colors.

We visited the grotto Jameos del Agua and vineyards, which look very different from usual ones. 

Finally we visited a national park Timanfaya - the park of volcanoes. The last eruption was couple centuries ago, so the whole island is covered with lava and ash. You have the feeling you are not on the earth but on the moon or mars.
