Dialog - Mallorca

16.07.2010 - 23.07.2010 @ (4 Ansichten)

Our vacation on Majorca (yes, that is its English spelling, "Mallorca" being the native-language one). Only a two-hour flight away from Frankfurt, this island in the mediterranean offered what we needed: Warm (but not too hot) weather, sunshine, relaxing at the beach, quietness and a care-free hotel stay.

Colónia: Shopping

Isabelle went out to shop for small presents for her friends, so I took my camera and caught some of the area around the "Placa Constitution", the "Avinguda Primavera" and the "Carrer Gabriel Roca" (the seafront road).

Tour de Mallorca, day 3, take 2

After having been exposed to so much "city", we wanted to see some more landscape, and headed north past Inca towards Alcúdia, and finally down south via Can Picafort (named after a Dutch guy nicknamed "Picafort", or "strong beater"), Petra, Porreres and Campos back to our hotel.

Tour de Mallorca, day 3

21.07.2010 @

On the third and last day of our island tour we went to see the city of Palma, the "La Seu" cathedral, the old downtown area with literally hundreds of narrow alleys, and the other end of the "Ferrocarril de Sóller" historic train.

Tour de Mallorca, day 2

Our second day trip took us westward - Campos - LLucmajor - around Palma, with a stop in Peguera, and over the hills on coast road MA-10 past Andtrax towards Port de Sóller, where the historic railway coming from Palma ends.

Tour de Mallorca, day 1

We rented a car for three days from a local place in Colònia Sant Jordi - our first tour taking us through the eastern part of Majorca - Santanyí - S'horta - Porto Cristo (seeing the "Dragon Caves" there) - Cala Millor - Capdepera, and back via Artà - Manacor and Felanitx (the "x" is pronounced like "sh" in "shoe").

Colónia: Evening Walk

Out for an evening stroll along the harbor of Colónia Sant Jordi.

The first day

Our flight from Frankfurt to Palma, arriving at the Hotel in Colònia de Sant Jordi, a small and quiet town in the southeast of the island.
