Do you like autumn? NO? Me neither 😀
So in autumn 2015 winter was comming and I decided that is time to leave. I fount out right now that I have some issues with October. When this month commes, I just wanna leave.
With my friends we figure out 3 weeks long road trip from Lanzarote trough Tarifa to Barcelona and than my friends flew home and I flew from Barcelona for one more week to Abu Dhabi.
On this trip I dealed with lot of stuff from my bucket list and because whole trip was amazing I decided to do 3 articles about this amazing places. Every place will have own article <3
My trip started in Brno at 6 pm in bus to Prague, 3 hour booooring trip. On Prague bus station was my friend waiting with pizza for dinner, ok that was really amazing 😀 and than super journey to Munich airport begun. From 11pm till 6am I was sitting in that stupid bus, thinking about stupid ME and my stupidest idea ever 😀 That way was terrible and I decided that this NEVER AGAIN. My friends were waiting there on me and at 9am we flew to Lanzarote. At that time I was fu***ng tired because I was already 15 hours on way, than 4 hours flight, where I wanted to die. We finally were on Lanzarote but everything can be worse :-D. Because we were saving money we decided that we will go trough whole that island by bus. Another stupid idea, such a great 24 hours. So we can take taxi for 50 euro and be in Famara in 30 minutes, but nope we waited for one bus 15 minutes, went on bigger bus station, where we were waiting for 2 hours to go 50 minutes by bus to Famara. Ok at that time I really taught that I will die there…
Maybe because of this horrible, terrible, disaster start of this trip everything other was crazily fantastic <3
Here is some info about Lanzarote:
Its one of the Canary Islands, its quite small and all black, all this island is made from dozens, maybe hundreds of Vulcanos, number I don’t remember anymore :o). All island is amazing and absolutely different and I never seen some other like this. After few days you will miss green color, because this island is just black, no trees, grass, flower, nothing at all. There are some really nice places, but this island is well known for surfing and kiteboarding beach called Famara.
Famara is small surfing village with just few citizens, I think something around 50-100 and everybody other is surfer. When you wanna buy something there, its little bit trouble, there are two small something which looks like a markets, but when you go in its like in someones cellar. But why not, you buy there everything important and what they don’t have after a while you will find out that you didn’t need it that much anyway.
ATTENTION: there is not good signal and not good wi-fi so prepare yourself, when you go there, you need to talk with people personally, you must go out and enjoy time with the others! On this place I found out that iPhone can stay ON for 3 days after one charge, such amazing moment 😀
We went there because of surfing and my dream to try this sport. We spent there unbelievably incredible time in Costa Noroeste surfing school, where we had great, funny and friendly instructors.
So surfing, ehm, hard to write about this sport, because on the beginning its more sinking than surfing 😀
You got whole info what to do from instructors so you grab your foamy lame surf and you go to sea, lay on that lame surf, still so disappointed about foamy lame surf because in movies everybody has that nice spiky short one and it looks easy, so why this 😀 but first wave is much faster than this taught and you are sinking for the first time. When you find out where is sky, you grab leash and tries to find out where is that lame foamy surfboard, than you lay again, make your hair in back, clean eyes from salty water and in the moment you see again another wave catches you and shows you how it in the washing machine looks a like. Than you try to catch a wave, you jump on the surf and than fall into sea with huge splash but I had time to kick to she surf, so it went up, wind caught that lame surf and when I beat another washing machine that lame surf fell directly on my head.
At that moment I finally forgot every my imaginations from that awesome movies and I realize that maybe it will be easier if I would use that instructions what they gave me. After this horrible first hour it was just better and better. After few days I caught even a blue water waves and I can say that I was little bit of surfing in that 10 days.
I absolutely love this sport, but I can say that it is the hardest sport I’ve ever done, but go and try, because that moment when you catch the wave and you ride, its priceless <3
