Ariadna Sosa Cáceres, winner of the short story competition sponsored by Servatur

March 2014

"Gran Canaria" and "Holiday" were both selected concepts so that lovers of writing could be inspired and participate in the short story competition organized by and sponsored by Servatur Hotels. During a month and a half, we received 42 texts, which could not exceed 50 words.

"I opened the window of the hotel, last night of my holiday, the smell of the sea encroached the room and my lungs, I breathed deeply, I felt the sadness of having to leave this mini paradise so remarkable and the happiness of having enjoyed it so much. I love Gran Canaria, I will return."

The winner, Ariadna Sosa Cáceres, has received as a prize a stay for two people at the hotel Servatur Terrazamar Sun Suite***, located in Puerto Rico, south of Gran Canaria.

From Servatur we congratulate her and thank all the participants, whose writings have communicated to us many feelings of this island that we appreciate so much.

We reprint below the original version in Spanish by the author which did not exceed 50 words.

“Abrí la ventana del hotel, última noche de mis vacaciones, el olor a mar invadió la habitación y mis pulmones, aspiré hondo, sentí la tristeza de tener que abandonar ese mini paraíso tan particular y la felicidad de haber disfrutado tanto de él. Te quiero Gran Canaria, volveré”.
