New Edit


Welcome to this weeks edition. 

The big question you have all been asking. When are the Christmas lights switched on in Campanario? They are switched on Saturday 25th  November - Arrive early as the time changes each year, always a great event.

The kite festival was amazing. Thanks to our reader for submitting the photos and a video.  

Evenings drawing in and getting a little chillier, but still shorts and t-shirts during the day. Welcome to winter in Fuerteventura

Happy days.
