Scenic Routes And Grocery Stores ๐Ÿ”

Monday 7th –

Goodbye Gran Canaria.๐Ÿ›ซ

Monday was our last bit of time in Gran Canaria, and it was spent getting ready to leave and head towards the airport.

As the drive to this side of the island had taken almost 2 hours, I was concerned about another long sickening drive back.
Mike reassured me the drive would NOT be as long.
But I did not expect a 20 min. driveโ€ฆ?
โ€œWhy are we parking Mike?โ€
โ€œCause we are here Jess, early too.โ€
โ€œHow can we be here in 20 min. when it took us 2 hours the other dayโ€ฆ?โ€
โ€œWell, that was the scenic route and this was the normal one.โ€

So yes, my husband took us two extra hours, through the mountains on terrible roads so we could โ€˜See moreโ€™.
Because you really โ€˜see moreโ€™ when your eyes are closed and your carsick ๐Ÿ™„  


We drove around almost the entire island.

Anywaysโ€ฆ Thankfully he seen the sense in taking the normal, short drive back to the airport๐Ÿ˜ 

Since we had extra time we stopped at another shopping centre to browse a bit.
We browsed to hard and came out with chocolate.
I told him grocery stores were our weakness.

Returned the rental car and got all checked in for the flight back.

We had saved the Sushi to eat during the flight ( it had been refrigerated no worries๐Ÿ˜) but then the take off was delayed so we ate it while waiting. 

I bought an awesome, fuzzy, grey and white blanket at one of the stores ( weird souvenir from a hot place but I love it so oh well ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’— ) that was perfect for staying warm this flight.
We slept a bit during the first bit but then we got the munchies.
So broke out the snacks and the wallet for another Coffee and later a Redbull.
I havenโ€™t had an energy drink for some time and the half I was allowed, embarrassingly enough to admit, did affect me ๐Ÿ˜
I told Mike if he wants me to learn more Dutch, Redbulls may be the way to go since they make me talk a lot more than usual and at least the energy would go somewhere useful then.

I guess we will see if he thinks that plan is worth acting on or if my hyperness is not worth barring for a few extra words learnt in the Dutch language ๐Ÿ˜œ

Once we got back to our car, we headed to Sarah’s house as she had asked if we wanted to have supper there.
So we enjoyed a meal of cheese stuffed chicken, potato wedges and salad.    


Sarah and I discussed our mutual love of movies, massages and food and also how our husbands had the same, somewhat lacking back-rub methods ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
At least we now have each other if the need for a romantic movie and massage arises ๐Ÿ˜‹

After our meal and visit was over we went to a German grocery store.

The fruits and nuts are cheaper in Germany then they are in Holland.
Stocked up on those items and headed to John and Inge’s as we were going to spend the night there.
Fiji was bigger and I donโ€™t think he missed us to much, but I think his babysitters missed us having him ๐Ÿ˜‰
