Windmill at Broa, Fårö island, Gotland, Sweden, Copyright

Fårö island, where we are right now, has a lot of wonderful old windmills. This one in the photo above is the first sight you get when you get off the 6 minutes ferry ride from Fårösund at Gotland island to Broa at Fårö island.

I think that you can rent some of them as a vacation accommodation, but we’ve never tried it ourselves since we love to stay at the farm.

Horses in Alcudia Old Town, Majorca, Photo Copyright Lifecruiser

One afternoon/evening we took the car from Alcudia port up to Alcudia town and almost the first we did see after we had parked the car was the horses in the photo above.

Such a wonderful sight! So traditional and so Spanish. I always love to see those Flamenco dresses, don’t you?

Mr Lifecruiser and Jane stopped for a minute at the cafe where the riders with their horses were, because one of the horses were a bit scared of another person passing by and made quite a fuss, so they couldn’t pass.

There were also a very nice gathering with restaurants, along the cobbled stone streets. It must be totally filled with tourist in the high season, it were such a great place for dinner out.

I simply loved Alcudia towns old parts and were in heaven. I had problems to really be able to see everything, my head did spin.

We walked around for hours, admiring the whole atmosphere among those old and beautiful buildings. I did my best to catch some of it with my camera, but it was difficult - too narrow to get space enough to get all in the picture that I wanted.

As you can see, the sun begun to set and created that lovely and very romantic light… Though for once, we were not alone, we were three…

Horse Power Tenerife Island IMG_6125

When out on roadtrips it’s not always an easy task to take photos. There is not enough places to stop the car to go out and shoot photos and when shooting photos from the car, it’s quite bumpy and the sight is not clear.

I liked how this photo turned out though, the contrast between the interesting architecture of the house, the horse and the car on the street.

One thing to reflect is the fact that they don’t have any riding helmets on, even though they’re riding on the streets in traffic. In Sweden that would have been unthinkable.

As a genuine horse lover, one thing that I love with the whole of Spain, not only at Tenerife Island, is the opportunity to see beautiful Spanish horses.

Many of them have a lot of Andalusian blood lines in them, which clearly shows. The Andalusian horse is such a beautiful horse, one of my absolute favorites. Lots of muscles, intelligence, beautiful moves and long horse manes.

The horse in the photo above was clearly not used to the street environment, making it a bit nervous and “on the toes”, notice the white foam at the neck of the horse.

They had to take another way to not accidentally bump into our car (even though we tried to keep a distance) and to calm down the horse.

There will be more posts of the Andalusian horse later on when I’m gonna write more about our Spain trip from last year, so if you love horses, be sure to keep an eye on Lifecruiser.
