My first experience of the Lost Property Office in Arrecife airport

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Check-in desks at Arrecife airportOn my last visit to Lanzarote I managed to leave something behind – my SIM card that I had swapped over during our stay so as to use one that offered cheaper internet access.  Either I left it behind in the flat that we were staying in, or it dropped out of my hand luggage when I was sorting out our flight tickets.  I only realised when I got back to Germany.

Having deactivated the card and ordered a replacement, I was still curious to know if I really had lost it in the airport at Arrecife, so I tried to call the lost property office. (more…)

Buying a piece of wood on Lanzarote

Broken piece of chipboard on LanzaroteThe sawdust under my bed when we arrived at our flat on Lanzarote should have been a clue, as should have been my instinct that told me at night my head was sinking lower than my feet in bed.

Lidl opens in Arrecife

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Last month Lidl finally opened in Arrecife.

The German supermarket chain is opening 11 stores in the Canary Islands, and apparently there were long queues to enter the store when it opened on 11th March.

Comments online have talked generally about the opening being good for tourists and locals alike, who will benefit from lower prices compared to those found in the smaller supermarkets in the resorts.

Lidl is located on the Eastern side of Arrecife in Calle Océano Atlántico.

What do you think?  Have you been to Lidl in Arrecife yet?
