Although I mainly talk of Corralejo, if you are on holiday this coming couple of weeks head down south to Sotavento. Stunning beaches which host the windsurfing world championships. Plenty to do for the family, bars, dancing, and entertainment for the children. The wind surfing is truly amazing, top competitors from around the world can be seen demonstrating their skills. Folk camp down on the beach and the atmosphere is second to none.
For a holiday never to be forgotten, try the experience.
British Airways is to offer flights to the Canary island of Fuerteventura for the first time in 10 years from December 13. The new service will operate twice a week, year round from Gatwick, with hand baggage-only fares from £69 one way. Flights will operate on Wednesday and Saturday.
The biggest sporting and tourism event of Fuerteventura enters its final stretch. The 2014 Fuerteventura Kiteboarding World Championship Windsurfing starts this Friday, July 18, on the beach at La Barca (Pajara) until Saturday, August 2. This edition gets the slalom windsurfing, so that both disciplines will compete in slalom and freestyle. There are 127,000 € in prize money.Read More
The Air Europa flight from Barcelona requested permission to land in Lanzarote just after 6.30pm. The emergency led two other flights to be diverted to nearby Fuerteventura and several other planes were ordered to remain in a holding pattern above Lanzarote until the Air Europa plane had made its rapid descent.
I know how upset you will have been to think of the overworked staff in the Passport Office with their backlog of half a million applications. But dry your tears, because the backlog has almost doubled, 50,000 people won’t receive their new passport in time to travel and in May alone overtime paid out to staff reached almost a million pounds.
The British nation pays an extra and avoidable £530million in inheritance tax (IHT) each year according to recent analysis, which should be a warning to everyone - but in particular expats - to look closely at how their estate is set up.
This staggering ‘over-payment’ is on account of many UK residents not holding life assurance in trust, which makes it liable to IHT if it means the value of the deceased’s estate exceeds the nil rate band.
