Fuerteventura is an island off the northwest coast of Africa.

It is the second largest of the Canary Islands.

There, there are cracks in the land, sand dunes and extinct volcanoes.

And the wind is so strong that most of the palm trees end up having stiff necks.

In backyards, cactuses replace roses, and the green lawn is as fake as Mariah Carey’s boobs.

Blue lagoons; heavy swells; threatening skies; and tourists wearing flipflops, V necks and gold chains.

That’s what Fuerteventura is about—challenging views.

We drove across the island for a week.

We slept on black sand, ate fresh fish and tested our taste for dust.

We loved it.
