Deceleration

This year’s trip to the Canary Islands was perhaps one of the most relaxing I have ever enjoyed.

Flawless weather (including hot Sahara winds for two full days and nights) with endless hours of sunshine, late-night walks along moonlit beaches, hours spent at Cafe La Ola /slash/ Dreams (with liters of Cacique), absolutely brilliant food at two of my favorite harbor restaurants, La Taberna in Puerto Calero and Taberna de Nino in Puerto del Carmen, long walks to all of my favorite (tourist-free) spots, tons of reading and … little else.

Service and everything else at my hotel of choice (for the fourth time these past years, a true first in my many years of traveling) was flawless.

This time, the soundtrack was provided almost exclusively by one of my favorite ambient albums, “World of Sleepers” by Carbon Based Lifeforms (2015).

Pure bliss.

P.S.: Photo -> Hotel pool (Hotel Las Costas, Lanzarote).
