You and me and we.
My Canary Islands – absolutely authentic and personal.
Who I am. Who are we?
Short to me. My name is Sven Stephan, I am a freelance copywriter and for over 10 years a passionate supporter of the Canary Islands, which I visit as often as possible. Most of the time I spend on my personal favorite island of Fuerteventura.
Behind the “We” are people who share my enthusiasm for the Canaries and occasionally accompany me on my trips, and provide you with interesting information and news.
It would be nice if this site can help a little to support the individual tourism in the islands.
My own home harbor is, as I said, the island of Fuerteventura – very popular for surfers, cyclists, walkers and its beaches. With the car ferry from here you travel in just 20 minutes to Lanzarote and in about 4 hours to Gran Canaria. The islands of Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma is best reached from Puerto Rosario with the safe island airlines.
Wherever your travels take you to – my advice: trust your own nose – and maybe even a little the recommendations you can found here (more soon). In this way, you can certainly take more home, than just the usual photos of the beaches, the hotel pool and the evening shows.
On my site you can always find new accommodations, which I have personally seen. Whether it’s the luxury holiday home, the Finca on the beach, a small city apartment or the simple, clean apartment in the village – the main thing is the accommodation has the certain something.
During my visits I don´t work with a checklists: washing machine or microwave? Hairdryer or satellite TV? I´m usually much more interested in the environment, the character and that certain something that you can find here.
The life around interests me, of course too. Where are the great beaches, the best restaurants, special fiestas, what’s happening and what’s new on the islands and could vacationers who visit only 10 or 14 days, the islands are interest too? These alternatives I want to show you in the long term – apart from the mass tourism. This is obviously a big goal and will not be implemented in a day here. But it is a beginning now.
Even without checklist I make very sure that the following criterias are met in any case:
– Cleanliness and Safety
– A welcoming and accessible owner or manager
– A special ambience and flair
– A fair price-performance ratio
– Good locations by the sea or in the beautiful landscape of the island
– No standard and no unmotivated host
