Especially enjoy the random photos - they usually manage to be more informative and entertaining than random.

Matthew's blog is sleek and unique. He offers interesting insights into life in the Canary Islands. Having lived in the Canary Islands for 7 years myself, and having visited most of them, I love reading what Matthew discovers. Keep up the good work!

Until I came across Matthew Hirtes' fascinating blog posts, I must admit I had very little interest in visiting Gran Canaria. Now I just can't wait to find out what it's like for myself!

A picture paints 1,000 words (Random Posts = great idea for time-pressed bloggers and readers)but Matthew uses both mediums to grrreat effect!

If you want to know about the Canary Islands, and Gran Canaria in particular, Matthew is your man! Informative, well-written articles and great photographs make this blog a favourite on my list :)

Brings the lesser-know parts of Gran Canaria to the reader, so you can see it as a local. Matthew is an authority of the island, and his blog is well worth reading for anyone interested in visiting.
