The Canary Islands (My Birthday)

The Canary Islands (My Birthday) |

My 20th birthday at Gran Canaria.
Ally and I left monday morning and got on our flight at 8:30am so atleast it wasnt too early its about a 4hr flight and before we knew it we had reached sun again FINALLY!!!
By the time we got to Puerto Rico it was late afternoon so we got to the pool ASAP for the last couple of hours of sun. It was about 30c and when we got back to the room Ally was red raw. We had dinner and then headed down to the pool bar for a couple of drinks and to book a trip for the next day.
Tuesday we headed to a water theme park which was great we both played on the slides and in the water like 10 year olds ALL DAY.
The next day we layed by the pool and listened to music thanks to a very generous guy who had brought speakers along. We didnt spend to much time out there as we both got burnt at the water park. We had a nana nap and then went out for dinner and a couple of drinks before heading to bed for our early morning start.
MY BIRTHDAY.... We decided to do something special for my birthday so we booked to go around the island on a cruise. It included heaps (most importantly FREE BAR ALL DAY). We were one of the first groups on the boat so we got a great position up top lying in the sun on a soft matress. We sailed out to sea in search of dolphins then went through a gorgeous little town called "MOGAN" its like a mini Venice. We stopped in a bay with other cruise ships where you had the choice to Jet Ski or PARASAIL. We have both been Jet skiing before so I was soooooo excited to Parasail...It was amazing we were up in the air over the crystal blue Atlantic for about 15mins and I have never felt so free. We then had some lunch and free time to swim and snorkel OMG the Atlantic is FREEZING but so refreshing at the same time. We then had banana boat rides and went exploring through caves. We got back to port about 6pm and then off to bed for another nana nap because the night life starts at about 11pm. We went to a bar called "HARLEY'S" and danced the night away on stage.
Friday we got driven around on Mopeds and got to see a couple of the other towns.
Saturday and Sunday we baked all day in the sun down the beach and the temp got to about 36c so when it got really hot we would go for lunch. Sunday being our last night we went up to a theatre/bar where "The Drifters" were playing so that was a good laugh.
Monday morning we sat out on our veranda and ate our breaky soaking up the last bit of sun before heading back to the airport.

Locations Visited: Mogan, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
