Whether you're visiting Gran Canaria courtesy of picking up a last-minute bargain break or planning to relocate there, Going Local in Gran Canaria is the book for you. Covering everything from places to see on your holiday to property advice and career opportunities, Going Local is much more than a travel guide. New residents will be delighted by its accessible, humorous style and the inside scoop on what's hot and what's not, coming from British journalist and resident of eight years, Matthew Hirtes. "Matthew Hirtes probably knows more about Gran Canaria than many who were born there. Going Local is an engaging and authoritative guide for visitors and new residents alike." Louise Parkin, editor Living Spain magazine "Going Local in Gran Canaria takes us through the background, history, culture, traditions and people at a steady canter that leaves you much better informed than when you started the book, and with a desire to visit and experience the pleasures and attractions yourself. Clearly, there is something for everyone: both in the book and in Gran Canaria." Chris Marshall, Telegraph Expat columnist and blogger at Almerimarlife.com "With a rare depth of insight, Matthew weaves his personal experiences through an engaging narrative to show us a different face to Gran Canaria." Andrea and Jack Montgomery author of Going Native in Tenerife "An extraordinarily honest, detailed, colourfully-written guide that both informs and entertains. Highly recommended." Victoria Twead, author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools, Two Old Fools - Olé! and Mouth-Watering Spanish Recipes.

About the Author:

Matthew Hirtes was born in Waltham Forest, north-east London in the early 1970s, grew up in the East Midlands, before returning to the capital to study at London University in 1991. Upon graduation, a chance encounter in a Camden boozer with cult Face magazine writer Gavin Hills launched a career in journalism. So far, this has taken in deputy editorship of The Official Chelsea Magazine and covering the Canaries, he's lived in Gran Canaria since 2004, for the likes of Condé Nast Traveller and The Independent. His first book, Going Local in Gran Canaria, is a travel guide for the discerning traveller as well as a handbook for those looking to make a fresh start overseas.
