Hey there !
I'm Anna, 26yrs old from Poland. I visited Fuerteventura first time 5 years ago, i loved this place on earth. I promised myself that one day it will be my home. Every year I had to back there, I could'nt find better place for holidays (and even I didn't think to find it coz I know where I feel comfortable) last time I have been there week ago, as always i stayed in Melia Gorriones (my favorite hotel) Now I'm in Poland but at the beginning of the new year i want to move to Fuerte permanently. I'm happy, coz here I hope I can meet a lot of people, with experience and good advices.
Have a nice evening for all!
Saludos

Neil Clarke from Derby. Have been to Fuerte four times in the last two years. Fantastic place. My wife and I are looking to retire there in 10 years time and will visit many more times before then.
Great site to get to know other people who live on the island. :D

Hello everybody,

I'm Penny and this is my first day on the forum. I have been visiting Fuerteventura 2 or 3 times a year with my husband for several years now but I am recently divorced and will be visiting on my own from here on. I just love the beaches and the Corralejo Dunes are my favourite resting place. Although it is going  to feel strange being on my own, I am the confident type and am determined to carry on enjoying my favourite beaches and making a new life for myself.

Welcome lonesome dove, and just remember teh old saying,

Strangers are only friends I have not met yet.  :-*

Hi everyone

I moved to La Oliva in September with my husband and two young children, we are absolutely loving it.  I have recently launched my own cake business, I make celebration cakes, everyday cakes and cupcakes :)

We are embracing the Spanish lifestyle and enjoying every minute of learning the language and encouraging our children to do the same.  We have been welcomed into the local community and our 4 year old is loving the local school.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to help us settle :)

Hi
We will be going to F. for the first time in Jan. Have previously been to G. C. and Ten. We travel not for the beach, but to experience the local culture and food. V. interested in landscapes and history. We are 'Fair Trade' travellers in that we want to spend our money with the locals rather than with internat. companies. We have visited over 30 countries

We will be staying in Lajares and touring in a car hired from Cabrera Medina

Always plan our hols ourselves and the last three have been via a site that lists 320,000 properties. http://www.homeaway.co.uk/

We live in the center of York and own and run a successful guest house.

Hi I'm David. I have been to the island a few times with my partner Pat.

 I am in the process of purchasing a house in Caleta. I'm a keen motorcyclist and love offroading.

 Any member got any info on motorcycle offroading on the island?

Hi
Not really new. Have been using this forum under the name of 'Missy' for several years. However, had to reregister as passwords all changed.

Still find the site useful, so keep up the good work.

Love Fuerteventura & Corralejo. Have never had a bad holiday here.

Hi, I have been reading the forums on and off for quite a while gaining some good info which has helped me on my first 2 holidays to the island, so I decided to register. Can't wait until April for my third stay in Corralejo.

Hi Guys , Im Sue and me and partner are looking to buy in Corralejo area in the near future. As a second home, not to rent out .We are really looking to do bit of info gathering , but will rent for few months first .. must say a bit alarmed by all the empty residential complexes we have seen for sale .

Hi folks. We are Tim and Lyn. We've been to Fuerte many times and normally stay in Caleta.

Been off the forum for a couple of years, so it's nice to see some old names. Went to Egypt this year for a change, but not overly impressed, so will be returning to Fuerte in future.

Welcome back Tim & Lyn

Strange that you did not like Egypt, me and mrs Can did Cairo, Luxur, the Nile and Sharm a few years ago and loved it.

Fuerteventura is our home in the sun, when we need a break.

Hi all!

We're Alan and Helen, and although we live in the UK we've visited Fuerteventura afew times over the past 15 years or so - with our boys as they've been growing up, and most recently just the two of us. We've 'done' the other islands out there and we also love Mallorca in the summer, but Fuerteventura just has that certain something that makes it a bit more special....and its not just the weather! I've already been able to take early retirement from my long-term career and Helen (a nurse) can do the same within the next year, so we are thinking very seriously about a move to the island. Must have read every single article going on the economic situation, agonised over all the advice re buy/rent/keep a UK place, but the bottom line is that for at least 5 months of the year the UK is just too darned cold, wet and miserable.... and if we get another summer as bad as 2012..! Anyway, we we came back from a December visit more convinced than ever, so we're back again in early March for a bit more of a serious look.

This site is excellent, and its great to pick up info from those a bit more in the know about living in Fuerteventura. Been following it for while, but thought it would be good to 'sign up'!

Hi newbie Mikster from Derby in the UK, will be over next week for a cheeky week, looking forward to a beer or two in Blue Rock, lunch at the harbour and tapas in Corralcoles, if they're all still around.
Posted in the CD Corralejo fixtures about football shirts if anyone can help me......
