Living in Lanzarote is a book which covers our first six years after our family's move to the island at the turn of the century.
It will tell you why we chose to make the move, our ups and downs in coming to terms with that decision, and how we slowly integrated into The Canarian way of life.
It's an upbeat book, because things went well for us, and we grew a large and successful business after starting with very little. Our children grew up in the wonderful safe environment that Lanzarote provides to those of us lucky enough to live here.
The book was completed in 2006, and is a valuable insight for anyone contemplating a move to the island. Its 106 pages long.

A lovely and sometimes amusing read following the exploits of Mike and his family relocating to Lanzarote. As regular visitors to the island we could relate to many of the places mentioned. Mike also kindly sent me a copy of the follow up book 'Still Living In Lanzarote' as well..
A False Title

This is purely a personal view but i had assumed that this would be a guide to the island for the outsider .
The best thing one can say about it is that it is not. Instead it is one of the '..what happened to us when we set up in a different country' genre. Amusing but not necessarily helpful.
Editor's Note: Sorry you feel that way, Mr Brady, but the description of the book doesn't in any way suggest it is a guide for outsiders. As we have a "no questions asked" refund policy, I have refunded your payment today.

Very enjoyable, informative and lashings of humour and characters such as Maximo and Luis.As for Mike and Julia nearly a dozen jobs between them plus life, to busy for me........well done.
