Icy Blast Sets Pulses Racing For Lanzarote

Scenes of New England over the weekend and today with several inches of snow - before November has started - has lead to an upsurge in the number of people in the UK looking online for a winter sunshine break.

And the most popular destination is the Canary Islands, consisting of Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.

Geographically closer to Africa than Europe, the islands enjoy good weather year round, and is a mecca for those who can't go through the next four of five months of cold and dark evenings.

But it's not just the tourists who will be enjoying the weather in Lanzarote this winter, according to a blog about the island. Many people who have retired move there full time, and despite the recession it can be a good move financially as property prices have plummeted more in Spain and her islands - by as much as 50% - than the UK, with bargains available for pensioners looking for a better climate than the British Isles.

Malta Set For A Brad Pitt Boost

Valletta, capital of Malta
Kefalonia will testify to the impact a great movie can have on an island's tourism, after the filming there of Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Although it had tourists before the film starring Penelope Cruz and Nicolas cage was released ten years ago, the boost in visitor numbers has been substantial and continues even today.

Another Mediterranean island, this time Malta, will be hoping that a Brad Pitt movie called World War Z will have a similar impact when it's released in January, and with a lot of people cutting back on holidays abroad it could help their tourism industry in what could otherwise have been a difficult 2012.
