Another month with the numbers going down. Also, Fuerteventura is the only island in the Archipelago with negative numbers this (January 2019) month.


Passengers in January 2019:
  • Gran Canaria:   1,180,487 (similar level as January 2018)
  • Tenerife South:  1,019,034 (about 5% more)
  • Lanzarote:            569,287 (2% up)
  • Fuerteventura:     442,911 (almost 7% down)
  • Tenerife North:     400,382 (over 6% up)
  • La Palma:             117,624 (3% more)
  • El Hierro:                18,375 (7% up)
  • La Gomera:              4,754 (more than 40% increase)

We've been on the three big islands many times BF (read: "Before Fuerteventura") and I would say, every single person choosing one of the Top three is missing a big time.

I would "blame" some of it on Germania airline. They used to do 15 flights per week.

On the other hand, read somewhere that number of cruise passengers increased by more than 12%.

The North African countries have now reopened for business, but I think more people are being priced out with some of the vastly increases in long term rentals costs and also the casual winter sun seekers hotels being greedy.

It’s a place I have never been. Would love to soak up the history & architecture but TBH I don’t think it is a safe place to go, same for pretty much all of Africa. Even though Fuerte is not far it seems like a completely different environment IMHO

Not just that, nor the cheap holiday packages in Turkey. In most cases it is cheaper to book holiday in Tenerife than Fuerteventura. There's simply much higher number of lights to the biggest Canary Island and the competition is driving the prices of flights down. The same with the hotels. Not that I would prefer to be there but the average family will rather save a couple of hundred pounds and enjoy the holiday in Tenerife.

That's at least how I see it.

Afternoon Ron.

Egypt and in particular the Cairo museum is really a must we have been 3 times once as part of a Med Cruise, which is the first time we went to The Museum, that was 30 years ago and management still talks about the Tutankhamun Exhibition, we then did a Nile Cruise to visit The Valley of The Kings which again was excellent and then a year or two later had a couple of weeks on The Red Sea which was OK but no different to anywhere else, and we would not repeat, but The other two we were always going to but there was always somewhere else we had not been too.
Do not confuse my personality with my attitude my personality is down to me, but my attitude depends on you!

My first visit to Egypt was in 1995, to embark upon a fishing expedition of all things, fishing Lake Nasser, above the Aswan Dam.
We visited some of the temples that had been moved to higher ground when the lake was forming including Abu Simbel and there are probably hundreds of buildings which are now submerged below the lake.
We also visited the temple complex at Karnak in Luxor which is utterly jaw-dropping.

Despite the destruction caused by the damming of the Nile and the displacement of the Nubian peoples, Lake Nasser is one of those places that I hanker to return to, but the security issues in Egypt are the main concern.

For anyone with nothing better to do for 18 minutes, here is a short film that I made of our first (of four) trips to the lake to fish for Nile Perch, the largest of all freshwater fish.
Apologies for the picture and sound qualities - it was filmed 20+ years ago on a domestic camcorder.
