Holidays from the Island

Overcoming a Fear of Flying Pt 1

fear of flying


Many of us feel an inexplicable fear of flying on an airplane. Some people can help themselves to relax with a shot of brandy, but for many people it doesn’t help, besides, drinking is really not a solution to a problem and will definitely not eliminate your fear of flying... Here is the first part of a 2 part guide (next part next week)

Las Palmas has lots to offer, a few pictures shown below of our Travels

What was once a small fishing village with only 200 inhabitants, Morro Jable has now grown into one of the biggest holiday resorts for German tourists on the island (with around 8,000 inhabitants)
