Technical Aids Test Week Lanzarote Part 3

Frontpage

The bungalow complex Nautilus in Lanzarote

is extraordinary. I haven’t seen anything like this before. You are living there a bit like in the Frankfurtian Museum of Modern Art, I will write a particular blog about it some time.

It begins with the fact that the trails for wheelers are bare of potholes and painted in stylish swimming pool blue. The only ramp which is a bit steeper was lately defused to a

Spanish 6 Degrees – Ramp

Additionally there are rest areas set up for „tired warriors“.

The classic mediterranian flair with down falling plaster, clamping doors, blank cables, wiggly door handles, busted sockets and washbasins you miss immediately (not really).

Also the 500 g of hair in the sink will hardly be found. Thus the holiday feeling slowly starts.

44 bungalows are set up wheelchair accessible, and it is to mention that the grab handles next to the toilet are better fixed than on some stands of a rehab fair. The type of the

Raised Toilet Seat


is designed very individually and is even new to me, but it seems to be functional. Even a

Makeup Mirror

was kept in mind, which is optimally suitable for a wheeler to shave himself. Curiously it is the same type I introduced in my blog on June, 10th 2010. Seems that somebody has read my article. (see older blog post). ;-)

In newer bungalows some floor cupboards in the kitchen were saved maybe because of a lack of money. This results in the negative effect, that you as wheelchair driving man can reach the stove and will therefore sometimes be compelled to kitchen duty during the holidays by your partner.

The approximately 32 inch flatscreen TV is secured by an alarm system and definitely too big for the hand luggage on the return flight.

In this complex anything time-tested is different. In front of every bungalow you will find two sunbeds on a little terrace, and you will find plenty of them around the pool. So you are cheated out of the sporting competition on holiday to place your black-red-gold coloured towel on a sunbed at 03:30 o’clock in the early morning before any English could do so, just to claim your territory.

For us four-wheelers there is a

Poollifter, operated by water pressure

available which firstly reminds of a bottling plant of a brewery, but with a little practice the usage is fine.

To be continued!
