Trash Containers are Classy
Favorite thing: Throughout the old town area, I I imagine in the whole city there are bronze trash cans that are used for recycling of items. Put your piece in the top, and it automatically cycles down to the receptacle belowRelated to:

Favorite thing: These -really this one of two that are located along the main road; Maritim near the water edge. It is in Plaza Rentadors, and the purpose, I guess is for shopping since there were shops surrounding them. There are around 2500 windmills on the island which were used for all kinds of work-such as grind grains, draw water from wells, or use as energy source from wind.
The statue and pool at the water edge, and a very peaceful place to rest and enjoy the sites.
Fondest memory: The web site-not highlighted due to VT needs a link mode of the windmills of Majorca. http://www.firstmallorca.com/en/windmillsRelated to:

The Weather in Palma de Mallorca
Favorite thing: Two links to check:
Favorite thing: The sports facilities in Mallorca have been in a constant phase of improvement in recent years; in addition, a grand incentive was provided by the exceptional circumstances created by the celebration of the University Olympic Games in 1999. These proved to be one of the most outstanding sporting events in the history of the island. The infrastructure resulting from the organisation of the games can be enjoyed by both residents and visitors as well, who are already far from being at a loss for opportunities to do sports throughout the year.
While Mallorca's nautical potential is well known, its gentle climate during the winter, from the point of view of the cyclist, is perhaps less so. A large and growing number of teams choose the island as a winter training ground when the cold strikes other latitudes.
Equestrian sports are also very well established. Show jumping competitions such as the Trofeu de Su Alteza Real Infanta Elena and the trotting races in Palma and Manacor are two examples of the importance of such sport in Mallorca.
The island also offers great opportunities and conditions for minority aerial sports, from hang-gliding and skydiving to flying ultralights.
Nonetheless, the star sports are all those carried out in or on the water. Mallorca has an intimate relationship with the sea, with nearly 20,000 moorings in its marinas. It should then be no surprise that maritime competitions, especially regattas, dot its calendar. Events of recognized international prestige include, among others, the Princesa Sofía Trophy, the Copa de Su Majestad el Rey and the Trofeo Almirante Conde de Barcelona.
If your passions run to diving, water-skiing, game fishing, windsurfing or any other sport related to the sea, you cannot fail to find occasions to enjoy your favourite pursuits or schools in which to sharpen and perfect your skills.Related to:

Mallorca Island..... Tips and Tricks
Favorite thing: Happy Hour and Discos!!!!
To describe Playa de Palma's most important attaction...2 words are enough... Happy hour and discos...!
If you are searching for relax, go on the other site of the Island.....
Fondest memory: Just to enjoy Mallorca Island, here some little advices...
1) Rent a car.... car are really cheaper and it's useful to see beautiful landscapes that this Island can offer.... It doesn't matter where you decide to go, everywhere you can find beaches or villages, it's up to you to decide where to stop you!
2) If you are looking for German people.... go on Playa arenal (and area surronding) where nightlife is built up for them (beers, sausages and many discos..)
3) If you are looking for English people... go in Magaluff (in the west side of Palma de Mallorca) where you can find Pubs, english soccer match on Tv's....
4)If you search for Italians... go everywhere!
5)PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR WALLETT.... DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN THE CAR YOU RENT, AND LEFT RELEVANT DOCUMENTS (SUCH PASSPORT) IN THE HOTEL...
6) If you smoke...buy the cigarets directly in the Island (last year 1 pck Marlboro was 1.70 Euro) NOT IN THE DUTY FREE (where it costs 2.50 Euro!)
7)Don't taste Sangria Champagne if you have to go to the airport and take return flight... Flying drunk is 1 of the worse thing I ever done!!!!Related to:
Streets of Palma
Favorite thing: On the travelogues you can see one called "Streets of Palma de Mallorca", where I put some pictures that I took, but since I don't remember the name of many of the places, if you know the names please drop me a line... :P
I wanted to take some more pictures but unfortunately I was without batteries in my cam...
View over the city....
Favorite thing: This picture was taken from the Bellver Castle, I came almost all the way from Alcudia to Palma sleeping on the bus so this was the first picture I took of Palma de Mallorca...
We can easely see the huge cathedral over the city.
Using ATM machines
Favorite thing: If your ATM card is linked to the PLUS or CIRRUS networks, you have the option of using it to obtain cash in over 135 countries worldwide. The CIRRUS Network currently has over 780,000 ATMs worldwide; and the VISA/PLUS has over 750,000.
The biggest advantage of exchanging money with your ATM card is that cash withdrawals, regardless of size, are exchanged based on wholesale exchange rates which are usually reserved only for large interbank exchanges. This rate is often 2-5% better than what you get from exchanging traveler's checks at a local exchange counter. Also, local banks or money change bureaus will add on transaction fees which can easily eat up another 2% of your money.
I use my ATM card, at a Citibank location where possible, to exchange money in foreign countries because I get the best exchange rate doing that. Sometimes, however, I have been in cities that do not have a Citibank location.
I've attempted to use ATM machines from some of the major banks in a foreign country, but without any luck. Then I discovered what I had been doing wrong and why they had not worked for me.
The secret is making sure to use an ATM machine that displays the PLUS or HONOR logos (usually near the keypad) on the machine you are using. If it does not have those logos prominently displayed then it is a machine that probably cannot tie into those networks.
If there are a number of ATM machines grouped together, for instance at an airport, look them over carefully for the machines displaying those logos before you try to use them.
See www.citibank.com and their ATM locations for more information.
For those who need larger amounts of currency when using ATM cards overseas, talk to your bank about raising your daily limit. Most limits tend to be about $200.00. But you can ask to have this limit raised to say $400.00 daily and just explain the reason for the increase—you’ll be traveling overseas. Should be no problem. Then you can have it lowered again when you return home.Related to:

mineral water is your friend
Favorite thing: definately has to be the millenium club in the BCM complex, absolutely insanely huge club !

Fondest memory: lying on a secluded beach (it was quite clean too) the sun beating down, slight occasional breeze. beautiful weather, you could go out walking for hours at night or early morning.
i miss it its like my kind of paradise !
Majorca beautiful, cultural, sophisticed
Favorite thing: The people are probably the most friendly in the world with a real love for living and love of good food. fantastic restaurants, beautiful beaches, superb weather, crystal clear sea, fantastic diving, the best wine in the world, stunning views - what more can I say
Fondest memory: My favourite beach on Majorca is Es Trenc and even though it has become extremely popular over the last few years it is still a magical beach. The drive from Palma is probably around 45-50 minutes, but well worth it, as you park in the huge car park and walk through the dunes path the the beach and the view of the beautiful sea - ahhh
Favorite thing: Oranges from Spain are absolutely incredible.
Normally I'm not too much of an orange eater, but when I come to Spain, the oranges are in trouble!!
So much juicy flavor! YUM!Related to:
