Always look for a better spot
And, still, we enjoyed that sailing day as if it was the last day of our lives. We tightened the sails until we got that boat flying, and when the deck started getting waves and waves from a side, so inclined we had it, we didn’t know the only reason why we couldn’t loosen them was because the captain had changed the knots because the noise of the ropes was getting on his nerves. That night, the biggest sail got loose. The knot was terrible, and the strain too much. We were lucky it hit nobody. In the morning, we stopped at a harbor in Galicia, and we left, exhausted and full of sadness. I couldn’t believe we had lost all of our joy and thrill in just four days. I couldn’t accept it. So I turned left, saw a beautiful, luxury catamaran, jumped in and offered our services to the captain aboard. Join me in two days at A Coruña, he said. We need you to take this boat to Mallorca in five days. So we went, and another travel began. But that’s another story…Leire Ruiz
Not having any great desire to visit Spain but wanting to be in warmer weather for the long weekend, I booked a trip to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Little did I know I would absolutely fall in love with the Spanish lifestyle combined with island relaxation. Between hiking a small portion of the old GR221, feasting on some fresh calamari, and kayaking on a small inlet along the coast, it’s safe to say this island stole my heart.
Cathedral de Palma Not having any great desire to visit Spain but wanting to be in warmer weather for the long weekend, I booked a trip to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Little did I know I would absolutely fall in love with the Spanish lifestyle combined with island relaxation. Between hiking a small portion of the old GR221, feasting on some fresh calamari, and kayaking on a small inlet along the coast, it’s safe to say this island stole my heart. Getting There & Around Due to the whole island factor, the only ways to get to Mallorca are through flights or ferries. Many cruises depart from Palma and other coastal towns, as well as back and forth from mainland Spain, but coming from the Netherlands I had to fly. Two buses (I took the #1) will each take you easily to the main part of Palma and the main bus/train station, so for the budget traveler like myself a 3 Euro ride to worked perfectly in the budget. As for getting around the island and the city of Palma itself taxis are surprisingly inexpensive; a 1am taxi home from a bar cost 6 Euro while a half-hour 6am taxi ride from a small town to the airport ran me only 37 Euro. If you’re a single traveler or willing to play by the rules of bus schedules, Mallorca’s public transportation runs all over the island and is extremely inexpensive for day trips and beach hopping.Gabie Mahlmann
‘Road tripping Mallorca, Europe’s paradise island’
Mallorca is a well known summer location, especially for Europeans. From all over, tourists will come to spend their vacations on this Spanish island. They choose the city where they want to spend their vacation, and maybe visit Palma once or twice. Mallorca has much more to offer than just that, you don’t know what you are missing! I discovered that Mallorca is beyond beautiful and that the island has a mixture of mountains, fields, a clear blue sea and pretty beaches.Coco Dee

Mallorca After a lot of sprinting through airports, living out of suitcases and language difficulties I can say with certainty that Mallorca is my favourite place in the world and am happy to now call it my home. Mallorca while having a renowned reputation central to Magaluf and its antics has far more to offer than what is commonly acknowledged. Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands situated in the Mediterranean Sea. It gets quite busy in summer with an influx of tourists commonly from Germany and Britain. While Palma is the main city and mostly Spanish is spoken in the towns the people of Mallorca take to speaking in Catalan. It’s common for the people of Mallorca to love to travel, however it’s uncommon for them to actually move off the Island to reside elsewhere. Once you have spent some time here, I can guarantee you will understand why.JL
