A Trip In The Canary Islands (Lanzarote) P2 Volcano Island


Prologue: (Play your part as Opa and Oma (Grandpa & ma).

Sometimes it’s strenuous being grandparents when the grandchild has been grown a little older and enjoyed more staying with them. It’s maybe because you do your best to make her happy.

However, you can breathe a sigh of relief when she goes back to her parents, but after a while, you miss her excessively!

Now, let’s get on the volcanoes! Our first plan was to rent a car to participate in the volcano tour. Renting a car was complicated enough as the production of new automobiles has become less in the last years, you can hardly find one. However, we’ve got a car, or better to say, a cart, to have our tours around. (Regina has always had many plans!)

It was an exciting experience. We drove to a parking lot, and there we had to get into one of the buses, which took us around the hills and mountains on a narrow street and let us look at the so many volcanoes.

I have recorded a short clip:

Here we can have a better view with my adorable wife’s pics.

Especially when the driver, in a short break, offered Regina his help to take some pictures with her mobile-phone:

Anyway, it was a one-for-all tour. There were explanations in three languages; Spain, English, and German, which you may notice in the video. (no French! je ne sais pas pourquoi?), and the tour ended with Johann Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra. What for me as a Jungian is self-evident! It is also good here, I think, to finish this with a Masterwork of all time in cinema. I will try for the third section. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

  1. A Magnificent part 2, and fitting ending to this magical mystery tour of volcano island๐ŸŒ‹ fantastic!

    Alert* On my iPhone WordPress reader app I cannot see or click on the video links you post๐Ÿ˜ฑ So I will try again from my laptop later when Iโ€™m done at work. Is the last link for 2001? Iโ€™m guessing? Idk if other readers have the and issue in their phones, but an easy remedy would be to paste just the link (not the embedded video) below the embed, as a backup. That way I could directly click the linked text, or copy paste it into browser.

    Great post, LM๐Ÿ˜€

  2. A slightly hair raising coach trip in your clip, but I enjoyed the view, and hearing Spanish spoken after a very long time. A spectacular landscape, which does look otherworldly.
    I’ve done a similar trip to Shehanne! It was very hot๐Ÿฅต

    Opa and Oma showing their grandchildren the world. I know grandkids are exhausting, but there’s so much love and adventure–and the parents get a break. Thanks for taking us on a video trip and sharing hills, cave entrances, and blue skies. The driver seemed careful, unlike bus trips I took many years ago in the mountains of Mexico. I’m glad your journey was a success.
