Left-handed people...Facts!

It is a fact that left handed people have the right side of the brain more active. Right hand people have their left side of the brain more active.

The right side of the brain is responsible mainly for emotional expression, spatial awarness, creativity, imagination and
music. Left handed people use this side of the brain more often, so that means that they may have a better imagination or creativity
from a person who is right-handed who uses the other side of the brain (left side) which is responsible for language, writing, maths etc.

6. Left-handed people less like spiral notebooks than right-handed people

7. The tests taken by Dr. Nick Cherbuin revealed that left-handed people better handle themselves with "many buttons", suck as

The life of a Wolf

Wolves are the largest members of the dog family. They may weigh from 19 to 80 kgs and they are best spotted in a pack of wolves. 
Though wolves almost never attack people, they are recognized to be one of the most fearsome animals.

They attack domestic animals therefore a wide number of animals have been spotted to be shot because of that reason.

Wolfpacks are established according to a strict hierarchy, with a dominant male at the top and his mate not far behind.
Usually, this male and female are the only animals of the pack to breed.
All of the pack's adults help to care for the young and little pups by bringing them food and watching them while others hunt.

A wolf can live up to 13 years in the wild, however, the average is only 6-8 years.
Their fur color varies from gray, tan and brown to pure white or black.
They can run as fast as 35 mph
They hunt other animals, using their highly developed smell and hearing.

A single wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, 
When all the pack of wolves howl, it's becauce they may be sending a territorial message to another pack.
Some howls are confrontational. It may sound similar to a dog's bark and this may simply begin because a nearby wolf has already
begun doing it.

The Beauty of Fuerteventura 

Ahh, Summer is just around the corner, yet I can feel it already, do you? Of coarse you do! Many of us are already packing summer dresses and floral swimsuits and have their flight tickets booked! Unfortunately, most people aren't quite sure where to go yet and are stuck sitting at home where others drink cocktails beside the outdoor pool or even better- on the beach.

Not to worry though, as I am giving you a great idea! I have gathered some great info about this island called Fuerteventura, and I am willing to pass on what I learned so far:

Fuerteventura is a Spanish Island located 100km off the northwest coast of mainland Africa. It is one of the many islands, all of them are called the Canary Islands. 

Fuerteventura is the second largest Canary Island. The largest is Tenerife, the third is Gran Canaria. Each one has a whole year of sunny days and warm winds.

It is also the second largest Canary Island and is the closest to the African coast. 
With 3000 hours of sunshine a year and over 150 long sandy beaches, Fuerteventura is a great destination for beach lovers seeking a spot of winter sun.
The island is characterised by its rocky volcanic terrain and many impressive sand dunes.

Food and Groceries

Naturally, the Island offers fresh fruits and vegetables, you will find a wide variety of sea food in many stores. One of the cheapest is HiperDino. These supermarkets are spread around the Canary Islands and are usually the best choice as they offer almost everything, from a wide variety of alcohol, to cosmetics, food and toys. 

The prices for the basic products are as follows:
 Euro1.50 for 5 Litres of water (yup, they sell 5litres of water which sums up to be cheaper then when you buy a small bottle)
Euro 1 for bread, butter, tomatoes, milk, juices etc (most of them are rounded up to 1Euro!)
Alcohol: A can of a local beer costs up to 50cents
For 1 Liter of Vodka or Whiskey you will need to spend between Euro10-15 depending on the brand (Jack Daniels will cost more, whereas the Spanish Vodka or Whiskey cost approx. E10).

So Food and drinks are really cheap there . What I would worry more about is the price of Sunblocks, moisturizing creams and all the other cosmetic stuff. Like all the sunny islands, they "feed" on these products. That is why they are very expensive, probably more expensive from where you live. I would advise you to go to your local supermarket and buy these stuff. remember- the temperatures are really high in Canary islands, so you need to make sure you are fully protected from the sun.


The people are nice and friendly there. You will notice that most of them speak English and German but this will mostly occur in the Touristic areas, such as around the hotels and beaches. I have lived in Gran Canaria for 3 months, and I noticed that the deeper you walk into the island, the more Spanish you'll hear. 


Fuerteventura is a home to the world speed surfing championships and its excellent waves and stunning beaches make the island perfect for the more active traveller wanting to sample some water sports. Corralejo is one of the largest resorts on the island and is perfect for families and couples seeking a relaxed sunny holiday. For an interesting day out why not explore the former capital of Betancuria or take a boat trip to the small island of Los Lobos with its beautiful nature reserve.
