I really want an apartment in Gran Canaria

Lighthouse at sunset - Maspalomas

We went to Gran Canaria for the fourth time last year - back to Maspalomas. The first time was in 2014 when we went to San Augustin. The second year we went to Maspalomas. The third year, we went to Melanores.

In 2014 we went in April, in 2015 in October, in 2016 it was November, and last year April again. April was windier and a bit cooler of an evening, but the weather in the daytime was beautiful on both occasions. In 2016 we headed off in November, and it was lovely weather - totally beach weather for the whole week!

San Augustin was more beautiful - the beach, and the scenery, but Maspalomas is much livelier - it has a lighthouse, loads of bars and things to do. I love both to be honest!! This year, we discovered a whole part we hadn't found before - loads more restaurants, a live music bar - fabulous.

Ever since we got back from the second visit, I wanted to go back. We booked up again as we couldn't wait. A different hotel again this time half board rather than all inclusive.  Its just so amazing and why would anyone not enjoy it? The weather is just amazing at times of the year when you are limited to where you can go. We have been each year since - 2014,2015, 2016 and 2017, but once a year is just not enough.

We have been all inclusive, half board, and self catering - all different, all fabulous. We've explored, but not even scratched the surface yet! So we are booked up again - twice as it goes. Once on our own, and taking G for her first time to GC this year.

However I want an apartment. I keep imagining just deciding to go and stay there, on a whim, to our own place, with our own stuff. This is my dream, and sometimes, just sometimes, your dreams can come true.

I really do hope so :)
