Chasing the sun in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

The Canary Islands are known throughout Europe as one of the best vacation spots. The island of Gran Canaria soaks in an average of 320 days of sun (more than Michigan's average of 158 days) and according to a much-flaunted rating in a 1996 scientific study called the 'Pleasant Weather Ratings,' it boasts the "best climate in the world."

Sadly, my experience was nothing as expected, it was surprisingly cold (ranging from 50-65 degrees Fahrenheit). 

But, with mountains, deserts, jungles and spectacular ocean views, it still made for an excellent spot to work from. 

Below are a few snapshots from my time in Las Palmas. Enjoy!
