Summit to Sea: Gran Canaria

The last days I went hitchhiking on the island of Gran Canaria to avoid the buzz in Las Palmas city. My driver felt like doing the hike to Roque Nublo (pictured) together with me and left me at the summit to chill. One peak wasn’t enough, so I hitched to Pic de Las Nieves, which is the highest point at the island and there’s a road leading up there so you can ACTUALLY hitchhike all the way to the top – lazy alert! Then I did a long hike down, which I can still feel in my legs, though the first part was a proper German “Stau” (traffic jam) of a slow tour group. After freecamping I headed to the sea to find some peace there, but all I found was new friends in the crowded area of Maspalomas Dunes! This was epic, but I’m leaving on a ship to Brazil tomorrow and will be without internet for nine days.. nine days!
