So as mentioned in another post, the taxis were on strike so it was horrific getting from the airport to the hotel.
Eventually got there and had an opportunity to rest and relax for the night.
Wasn’t until the next morning where we looked out of the window and got our first glimpse of the Mallorca I was expecting.
We had a great time on the island. We focused or energies on the capital city and main city of the island, Palma.
So being an island in the Mediterranean, you can expect the sun to be hot, the beaches to be busy and the water to be very blue.
What was surprising was the amount of history and how ‘pretty’ the city is.
Lots of little alleyways and small streets to get lost in. Church on every second corner. And great restaurants and bars along the foreshore.
Despite the heat, it was brilliantly fun just exploring around. One day we happened to come across a defence force expo/recruitment display.
And I got to hold a rocket launcher.
They also seem to love the gin and tonic here. And I was very spoilt in the choices.
It was very busy at one restaurant and when we finished eating, offered to give up our table and move the bar to keep talking, they gave us some free shots that was practically a desert in itself.
Another thee location we really only scratched the surface on. Will need to come back here again and do a bit more of the island, bust also avoid the big tourist petty towns like Magaluf.
Some more photos.
