Lives in London, United Kingdom
Since Feb 2008
25-34 year old female
I’m a Spanish girl living in London. Barcelona is my dream city, the place where to live in a near future. Until that time comes, I'm enjoying the opportunity London gives me to travel around the World. To me, every trip supposes an opportunity to discover a new culture, new people and a different way of living. As part of the HolaFoodie team, local cuisine is always an important part of my adventures. Don't forget to check holafoodie.com if you love food!

This natural park is the most visited place in Lanzarote, where the dramatic volcanic terrain is at its most magnificent. For visitors, there are two options: exploring by coach — riding through narrow roads and craggy mountains, with exceptional views from the windows along the way — or on a guided walk from the visitor center.
This green lagoon just meters away from the sea is an unusual sight. Although visitors are not allowed to walk around the beach here, the scenery surrounding it is very picturesque. Just don't forget your camera!
The charming village of El Golfo is the perfect lunch pitstop after a trip to Timanfaya National Park. Due to its beautiful location just by the seaside, there are lots of good restaurants to choose from. My favorite is Restaurante Placido, right on the sea front. Their fish and 'lapas' (barnacles) are truly amazing.
A spectacular place to admire the ocean, Los Hervideros is a walk through the caves and holes that the ocean has naturally carved into the mountains. Follow the lava paths down through the rocks to discover hidden caves and stunning coastal views.
Time for some beach action! South Lanzarote has several long beaches perfect for walking, snorkeling, swimming or simply relaxing, and Playa de Papagayo is one of the greatest on the island.
Nice atmosphere and great local food — the perfect ingredients for a memorable meal in Lanzarote. This upmarket restaurant is great for special occasions in particular, and the chef works wonders with local ingredients to create delicious, modern Canarian cuisine.
A lovely setting for a pleasant evening walk, this inland harbor is also surrounded by bars where you can enjoy a drink or two after your stroll. Find a space on one of the terraces and enjoy the harbor views.
