Jun 1, 2019 - Mallorca

1st June – Saturday Not a lot of sleep last night, the bars below didn’t close until nearly 4am. Not even earplugs helped. We are up at 6am, and out the door before 7. Just missed a bus to the bus station, but we were aiming for the next one anyway. There are quite a few at the stop waiting, a bit of a surprise given the early hour. We had thought (hoped) there would not be that many. The trip was a lot quicker than expected, they told us 28 minutes, but we were there in under 15, probably due to the fact there were not many pick-ups on the...

Sep 24, 2018 - Palma De Mallorca

After a short overnight trip we docked at our first port well before any of us woke up but by just after 9:00, 2/3 of our group were walking down the gangway to start our exploration of Palma. Palma is the capital city of Mallorca, a Spanish island that is conveniently located off the eastern coast of Spain. Dave was battling a cold so he and Kathy stayed on the ship which left the 4 of us to wander around like typical confused American tourists...which we were. It really wasn’t that bad as we had taken the short shuttle bus ride from the...

Jun 19, 2016 - Port d'Alcúdia, Baleaeric Islands

Well, looks like I went over my limit of pictures...so see my Facebook page for any others or ask me and I'll e-mail them to you. Almost made it to the end of out trip. So today we drove to Platja d'Alcúdia in North Majorca. It is a large resort popular with families, beautiful long, white sandy beach with shallow water. Ate lunch at Pippers (Raw salmon salad), swished around in the water a bit, shopped a bit, now we're sitting back relaxing on the balcony back home. It's Sunday, so there's lots of boats and people laying on the beach. Time...

Jun 18, 2016 - Port D'Andtratx, Mallorca, Spain

Although it was a frustrating, exhausting day yesterday...thanks to Ryanair and Goldcar rental (worst customer service ever) and the car ride and directions from hell with 5 roundabouts and numerous turns that ended up looking like the city planners were drunk when they decided where to put the roads. At one point we drove up a road that turned to rock and just ended so Susan had to back down it with a mountain on one side and a cliff and ocean on the other. We stopped at a mansion for directions but alas we got only a hello, but no...

Aug 23, 2015 - a Haircut in the White Isle

It was time – you know that time, when you have gone past a haircut being a good idea to being a necessity...i took a walk across town to see if the hairdresser that I used last year was still in residence. Yes, they were and overwhelmingly ecstatic to see me!!!! Not much passing traffic I am assuming or they all sniff the colour solutions after dark. They could fit me in as last appointment of the day at 830pm. Danny is Italian and comes from Turin in the mountains in the North of Italy and has fetched up on the shores of Ibiza and seems...

Apr 21, 2015 - ballearic which?

OK, just to show more of my geographic ignorance, I could not have told you where the Palma de Mallroca is, nor what the Ballearic islands are...thinking on the coast for Palma and having no knowledge of at least three good sized islands over here south of Spain even though my mother has given me very nice pearls from Mallorca. For shame. How about Ibiza? Now I have heard of it, but where is it? On the Costa Blanca, maybe? OK< all of you who knew this may feel appropriately smug now. Sigh. So we find ourselves on a remarkably good sized...

Oct 26, 2014 - Les Salines

Today was a day not unlike all the others here in Ibiza – I left the boat early to get ahead of the heat of the day and as the sun poked its head above the horizon the chill from the cooler evening washed across the deserted concrete apron and sped me on my way along the cobblestones. I was going for a different destination today but found myself lost among the convoluted back streets of town where the one way street system appeared to have a mind of its own and if you hesitate you are lost or run over by locals who don’t pay any heed to...

Oct 23, 2014 - Palma, Majorca

Oct 21st we flew out of Gatwick to Palma, Majorca. Not too difficult leaving the rain and about 12 - 15C in England for 20+C when we arrived in Palma! We are staying in the apartment belonging to Jon’s (my brother-in-law) daughter. Very nice indeed! On Wednesday 22nd we drove to various parts of the Island and also took a Hop-on-Hop Off bus tour of Palma itself. Today is a day lazing by the pool with blue skies and sun!

Oct 19, 2014 - Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

Now the guests have slowed down their rate of descent upon Pumpkin, we are getting some time over the weekends to do our own thing when not on watch that it. I took the opportunity to walk around town here in Ibiza and today I took the full ride on my push bike that had mild interference from a flat tyre last time I took it out of the hole for a spin. I really don’t think that after 6 months of no action it should find the only piece of fine metal thread on the road 10k’s from home boat and be attracted to it! I took a walk around town here...

Jul 31, 2014 - Finding Stamps in Ibiza

We had a rare day off the other day and I took the opportunity to pick up a few postcards which abound here in Ibiza. That was the easy part- well almost easy anyway, once you hunt down the person selling them that is, among all the towels with the imprinted Ibiza skink and fluff and bother touristy items. Once written, I then had to locate stamps – so I set off with great intentions of a fast run off the boat to pick up some stamps and post the cards. I figured the fastest and easiest way would be to head straight to the Post office or...

Jul 17, 2013 - Ibiza - Days 3, 4, 5

Ibiza in a nutshell: PARTY, BEACH, GIRLS, CLUBS, PARTY, DRINKS I did end up getting lost in the market there looking for Gian. Ended up passing the same store 3 times and that was the store Gian happened to be in. My luck. While in Ibiza, none of you probably know who any of these artists are but we ended up seeing: Hard Rock Sofa, Gareth Emery, Sidney Samson Benny Benassi, Avicii Nervo, Nicky Romero, David Guetta (3 different nights)

Jul 14, 2013 - Ibiza - Days 1 and 2

It's paradise here!!!! Sunny, beaches, warm whether, parties, drinking, etc... Ibiza is the clubbing capital of the world. When we arrived it was pretty late at night so we walked around a little bit then decided to call it a night, a long day at the airport in Madrid. After getting back to the room we couldnt really fall asleep so we decided to go to a club on our first night here. The club was alright but not what we were expecting from Ibiza, pretty dead inside. We stayed for a couple hours then decided to actually call it a night...
