CANARY ISLANDS ~Fuerteventura~

Yeaaaah!!! Already a new place at the beginning of 2011.... I know the Canary Islands are a populair holiday destination for Belgian people... But to live at such a place with almost 365 days of sunshine must be wonderful... I admit I'm a bit jeaulous of the sender...
The name Fuerteventura (sounds really exotic) is said to come from the word Fuerte (meaning strong) and ventura(viento meaning wind)and sometimes the winds are strong on Fuerteventura.
Love the stamp too!

Fuerteventura a Spanish island, is one of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa and it is the second largest island after Tenerife.

Fuerteventura is the oldest Canary Island, and was formed about 70 million years ago as a result of volcanic activity
