About Matthew H
Lives in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
Since May 2012
35-49 year old
I'm a journalist/blogger who's been residing in the totally tropical city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria since 2004. The capital is a great base to cover Gran Canaria for my blog, Gran Canaria Local. I've also visited the rest of the islands including Lanzarote and Tenerife to write features for magazines like Living Spain and newspapers such as The Independent.
