Although the last few days have been gorgeous here in Seville, a few weeks ago it seemed incredible that just a two-hours-and-something flight away, awaits a tropical paradise (where, instead of just dreaming about bikinis, I could actually wear one!)- the Canary Islands. I’ve been to several of the islands before (Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria), and last week I went with my best friend, yet again, to the south of Gran Canaria, Anfi del Mar, to be exact. To make the vacation a bit different, we decided to stay on a boat to be as close to the ocean as possible. Verbs of the week: sunbathing, running, hiking and too much wine to speak about (OK, that’s not a verb, but you know… Ehem.). The weather was perfect the whole week, so now a bit blonder and tanner Sylvia can be seen on the streets of Seville. Yohoo!
At least once a day, we stopped by Maroa Club de Mar. This beach club was nicer, calmer, cheaper and had better food than most places we tried in the area. Seriously, we hit the jackpot almost being able to roll out of our beds and land on one of their sunbeds with a glass of chilled cava in our hands. Perfection!
