I realised that there are many places that I have visited and need to return to. The four Balearic Islands gives a perfect example. This post is about some of those locations I didn´t visit ´properly´ and need to return at some point to get that illusive photo and discover the destination completely.
In the past I have actually visited the all four of the Balearic Islands in Spain but can´t bearly recall anything about them.
- Mallorca The only place I have visited on this island is Sa Coma. This is a family beach resort located close to Cala Millor, on the East of the island. I travelled here for a summer holiday many years ago, as a teenager with a friend of mines family. This was a typical beach British holiday. I can barely recall anything at all about that place. I just have a vague memory of the hotel pool. I don´t have any photos either.
- Formentera I stayed on a small boat moored on this island for 3 or 4 weeks in August one summer. I was working as a nanny at the time. (good gig!) This was a great opportunity to experience sailing in a beautiful area of the mediterranean. I want to return to this area of Spain. The bright turquoise waters there look Caribbean and the sunsets are magical.
- Ibiza is the next island from Formentera. Having a day off work from the nanny job I took a walk around the Old town of Ibiza. Wandering around the eclectic market in the Harbour. I took a few photos and that´s all I recall. I have some photos seen here on this post. The quality isn´t marvellous as they were taken many years ago with an analogical camera……
- Menorca My only trip to the island was to the resort of Cala n Forçat. Again this was a package holiday, staying in a large hotel. During the time there I didn´t leave the sleepy village at all. I regret that I didn´t find a car to hire in Menorca There are only 50 minutes driving distance from one side of the island to the other. Also I remember that at the time the locals were celebrating the Jaleo. A famous fiesta in the town of Ciutadella. This happens 23rd & 24th June each year. Part of the celebrations consist in trying to touch the horses heart for good luck. The riders rear up the horses front legs among the large crowds to show their equestrian skills. Menorca is on my list of places to return as the nature there is spectacular as well as the beaches. Here´s more information in this Mini guide about the island.
Did you visit somewhere and didn´t see the place properly?
Or maybe your camera broke on day one?
I´ll be interested to hear your tales in the comments.
