It took me a very long time to do this. For very long time I couldn’t even look at pictures or movies which I took in Japan. That caused me too much emotions. I think the approaching end of the year has inspired me to finally do this. I made a film that has a lot of flaws, but even more memories. I invite you to watch a short video summarizing my three-months stay in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Welcome to the second post about Gran Canaria (here first).Because the Canaries are islands of the tricky etymology I’ll add that they form part of the Macaronesia. Macaronesia should be a place built of macaroni, right? Or at least full of Italian grannies cooking it constantly in great pots just next to even bigger pots with tomato sauce? Nope, it’s language trap again. Makárōn nêsoi means “islands of the fortunate” in Greek (all the best to our favourite Greek girl – Evi!). I would like to eat macaroni that would make my happy every day : ) meanwhile we were really feeling fortunate people on Gran Canaria.
I was dreaming about the summer and it was going away! In my free time I was checking flights and one day I found a good deal. Gran Canaria. 50 euro, return ticket. “Let’s go there” I told to Jakub, and he agreed indifferently. Did he not believe me? I often tell him about flight deals, all over the world. This time I really meant it and after I bought the tickets I was already on the island (but first only in my imagination).
We took our things and went to Kamal’s car. While we were sitting in the back, excited he said to us:
‘So we are going deep into the desert, and that’s going to cost you 30 euro each.’
There was something we didn’t know. Kamal had his own business, and he used CouchSurfing for finding new clients
