Day Two – Lanzarote. Tias to Playa Blanca

Here is a recap of Alan’s Day Two of his Siete Islas Charity Walk. It is the second part of the Lanzarote section.

If you would like a more “as it happens” update… then go to his Facebook page HERE and click “like”.

Alan finished at Ferrocur Tías yesterday late afternoon / early evening… and was picked up by Sam (Alan’s eldest son) and taken to Puerto Calero so he could sleep on their yacht last night.

At around 8:20 this morning, he set off again… from Ferrocur Tías where he stopped yesterday evening, for the second part of his Lanzarote section of the walk.  He has already ben met by John Brindley, who stopped for a quick chat on his way to meet some hiking buddies.

He is positive and raring to go again – which is great and shows that the standard has been set for the walk so far.

26.35 kilometers / 5 hours 53 minutes 23 seconds / Ave speed 4.5kph / Top speed 6kph / Calories burned 1926

You can see where he walked HERE.

He is now home safe… and will soon be chomping through the roast chicken dinner he asked me to cook for him.

Tomorrow morning will see him up bright and early and heading over to Fuerteventura… where he will start walking from Corralejo.
