Gran Canaria: Part I
Ever since Ben and I started travelling together (almost four years ago!), we have always said that we want to try out new places we have never been before. By doing this we get to see different cultures and explore more places. However, like with any holiday, it takes a good few days to wind down after a hectic schedule and travelling, so we spent the first couple of days chilling and catching up on well earned resting; either by the beach, over drinks or by the pool. Nevertheless, we couldn't resist ourselves having a bit of an exploration in those sleepy days.
The place where we stayed, Cordial Green Golf Bungalows in Maspalomas was idyllic. We were fortunate enough to have a view of the golf course and at every breakfast we would watch the early starters have a game of golf.
Between Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, there was a bridge which had stunning views across the more sophisticated Maspalomas. This is where we spent our holiday, as we were not too keen on Playa del Ingles.
Oh, and of course we tried the famous traditional Spanish dish, Paella with shell fish spectacular. It was that good that I was tempted to lick the plate clean!
