  • Gran Canaria is an amazing island. Very many climatic zones. Here's how the island appeared as dunes in the desert. With only a limited area. The mystery of nature! Beautiful, interesting, amazing.

  • I have to laugh as when doing the Camel Trekking i was wearing strong perfume which is a big No! No! As it causes the camels to go ape by sniffing each others butts, so your camel will start to pull to get a sniff of the one in front, apparantly it messes with their sense of smell.
