Gran Canaria: One of the Seven Gems of Canary Islands

Gran Canaria is part of Canary Islands and it is third biggest. No matter what kind of vacation you have in mind, this island will fulfil your each and every wish. Do you want to lay on the beach and stroll around the city? – The island offers Maspalomas, Las Palmas de Gran Ganaria and Telde. Do you want an adventure? – Tight roads with blind turns, on which you have to honk, so the approachable car can hear you coming, lead to lovely little villages like Terror and Agaete with gorgeous views of volcanic island. Do you want an athletic/sporty vacation? Well, you’ve come to the right place. There are many hiking trails with hidden beaches, natural landmarks and paths among beautiful nature.

Amsterdam and Lovely Northern Island

Trip to Netherlands began in November in Zagreb. When I arrived, I jumped from the airplane into the train and drove north for another two hours to city called Groningen. I didn’t have to worry about accommodation because I was visiting my friend, who studied there.

I only had 4 days and the plan was to see Groningen, visit northern island called Schiermonnikoog and then return to Amsterdam for 2 more days of fun. Quite a bite, right? Before I tell you more, I truly recommend visiting Netherlands in spring or summer because I was chilled to the bone and came home with fever and blocked up nose.
