Resident and freelance journalist Matthew Hirtes has recently published his first book titled “Going local in Gran Canaria”.
Here Matthew uses his personal experiences, valuable information and colourful photos to offer the reader a humorous and accessible insight into life as a foreigner on Gran Canaria.
Not only is the book directed at offering future residents a helping hand by guiding them through key issues including heath, education, taxes and property but is also a must have for tourists who want to get to know the real Gran Canaria. Matthew also offers a thorough guide to the islands history, culture, events and hidden treasures and thanks to his desire to explore and learn he probably offers more knowledge about the island than many of those born here.
