WHERE THE SKY MEETS THE SEA
Majorca is trully a one off, surrounded by hidden beauty you just want to explore even further as there is so much to see and do. Unfortunately we were only there for a week and I never did half of what i wanted to do, so I'm planing on going back next yaer so Watch This Space! Its Natural beauty still amazes me, just look at the photos and see for yourself, need I say more ?
Get away from the tourist crowds
Stay away from the big tourist centres like Cala Rajada, Acudia and El Arenal...take a car and escape to the countryside. You will love it. Peaceful areas, lemon trees, goats, fields, beautiful fincas, small cafes on empty plazas, empty off-roads, small secluded beaches
A paradise for cyclists
The leading professional cyclists in the world come here every February to compete in the Challenge, the first event of the year counts towards the World Cup. Throughout the winter, the best European teams train in Mallorca because they find it is the ideal conditions for training.
Visitors who want to enjoy the beauty of Mallorca can also rent a bicycle and follow the country roads filled with great beauty, which will lead them to the small villages in the interior, and enable them to get to know Mallorca culture , enjoy the typical cooking in the Sellers and the peaceful way of life of the inhabitants.
Chris's tips for packing
Try to make your suitcase stand out. Customise it. A lot of people go on holiday, so there are a lot of suitcases on the carosel at the airports you really do want to see your suitcase, just a baggage strap WON'T DO we all have them and the suitcases are all similar. Beach wear, coverall as too much sun really does hurt your skin, sunglasses, beach footwear , good pair of walking shoes if you are thinking of walking any where because hot, tired, sweaty feet don't make for a pleasant holiday walk. usual medical supplies of plasters, wipes, sunburn lotion, painkillers for the headache that the sun is sure to cause, insect repellent, and anti-histamines. camera, flash if needed, batteries and maybe battery charger if re-chargables are taken a good supply of film or smart cards if digital camera. towels, drinks, snacks, parasol and sandmats, good book to read, disposable camera in case it gets stolen, sunglasses, snorkelling gear, fishing rod and tackle, small container you can wear around your neck or waist to put rings into (I know a lot of people who have lost their rings/chains in the sea) and it could also double for some money to be put into for the ices or beers you didn't take with you. Our suitcase is always packed light because you always want to bring home extras. Toiletries smallest size you are going to need, leave excess at hotel you can buy more when you get home. Always take travel kettle, tea, sugar and coffee also whitener, and travel adaptor. take a disposable camera for days on the beach when your things may be left unattended for short periods of time, if taking mobile phones don't forget the charger. Shorts and vest tops do you really need one for each day you will probably be in swimwear for most of the holiday anyhow so clothes would only be stored or worn for and hour or so a day you could wear same vest and shorts couple days alternet or mix and match so it looks like different outfit. lay all your clothes out before you go to make sure you have just enough with couple tidy evening outfits and blokes always take long sleeved shirt and pant with tie some places only let you in with these also a tidy pair of shoes for evening wear.
