As you can guess cooking a boat is completely different to cooking on land. Cooking on land is so much easier than cooking on a boat or at sea. There are very few advantages of cooking on a boat but there are a few challenges.
Here are a few:
. You re constantly being moved around
. There is very little space
. There is not a lot of creativity involved
. Meals tend to be very similar
. (A small advantage) All the meals are simple and easy to prepare
Despite this I really enjoy cooking on a boat. But the one thing I HATE is washing up. We don’t have a fancy dishwasher on board. We use a bucket of salt water and lots of fairy liquid. That’s about it so next time you’re asked to put something in the dishwasher. Don’t complain and think about having to wash EVERYTHING up by hand with a family of shrimps and plankton!



Hey welcome to my blog I’m just going to tell you what’s been happening. We have been really busy exploring Lanzarote. Lanzarote is in the Canary Islands (which means canine in latin) and has loads of volcanoes. We went on a camel ride up a volcano it was absolutely amazing. We’ve been on lots of long hikes and plenty of museum trips. I’ve realised how much I miss the cold, wet climate of England because here is like a huge, scorching, volcanic desert. I start home school on Monday which I’m really excited about it. It’s been really hot recently and I’ve been lounging round in the hammock listening to the hunger games on my iPad. We have visited Timanfaya national park and stumbled upon many lizards . In Lanzarote they speak Spanish so me and my family are practicing this language. This island has black sand as the lava has dried and disintegrated . I hope you will read my blog again.
