Kurt Fortwängler and SilkeMa went for a hike.
5 days ago
We had been looking forward to today for a few days because it looked as if the weather could be very interesting (sun, possibly even inversion weather conditions). It was all the more disappointing when yesterday was reported as cloudy to very cloudy for the whole day. Accordingly, we didn't plan a… read more

Once again, Komoot thought that was enough - and just ended the tour (recording). Therefore part 2 as a separate tour. The description can be found in Part 1.
Part 1 of our tour on All Saints' Day, because Komoot thought in between that it was enough (and stopped the recording).
After the holiday, ostrich farming was the order of the day, which also perfectly matched the weather (rain in the morning, then sun - real autumn weather). Then we walked up to Oberflockenbach… read more

If you are primarily familiar with the east coast of Fuerteventura (like almost all visitors), where the Costa Calma really lives up to its name (the beach here is a huge sandbox with an attached bathtub), you are tempted without knowing Spanish to mean "Costa Real" with "real to translate coast". That… read more

After the last (really strenuous) hike, we needed some rest. There was also a day with bad weather (downpour, then hours of sheet lightning and lightning; planes on the way to the airport turned around and were apparently diverted to Gran Canaria), so we went shopping, seabathing, walking in the area… read more

Today was by far the most strenuous tour of this holiday. The altitude meters displayed are far understated (among other things, we were at the sea, so the lowest point was 0 and not 50 meters in altitude), and it went through the mountains of the Jandia peninsula. So far, the tour was not feasible… read more

Actually, we wanted to do a lot of shopping yesterday (so that we could then go on a real hike today) - would, would, if...
We walked around the settlement and then came to the big supermarket in Butihondo, only to find out that it was National Day - no shopping! So it had to be something smaller again… read more

Fuerteventura, day 3: On the way from the white sausage to the servela sausage...
The weather was pretty good again today, lots of sun and a few clouds. Since we had breakfast early (well before 8 a.m.), we were able to start early (before 10 a.m., an hour after the tide went out) and start the long walk… read more

Today the weather was very good, which is actually rather bad for us (far too much sun for us white sausages). Add to that the problem of high tide around midday, with possible difficulties on some stretches of the beach. Accordingly, we took it easy and only started walking in the afternoon. The road… read more

Today, on the first full day here on Fuerteventura, we wanted to start slowly. The weather is currently very changeable, the (strong) wind drives the Sahara dust and also many butterflies to the island. The butterflies are surprisingly shy, you can even capture them with your mobile phone. The Sahara… read more
