OK so probably should have written out this post before I posted my Mallorca blog but whatever, too late for that now.
Anyway, so why did we pick Barcelona? Well…ummmm…..because my girlfriend found really cheap tickets! 🤣
I always had a soft spot for Barcelona in any case and mostly because my favorite soccer club is FC Barcelona, the CATALAN GIANT! I also just wanted to really go to Europe since my girlfriend has been there already and we're keeping a track of how many continents we can cover so this was my big chance to level the score.
We were recently in Barcelona and really wanted to visit one of the Balearic Islands. We ended up selecting Majorca – Reason being Ibiza is too much of a party island while Minorca/Menorca is more for families with kids with Majorca having a good mix of both.
Going to Majorca is very easy – take a 30 mins flight (i.e. $40 Ryan Air round-trip; not an ad) from Barcelona and you are in paradise! We took the 8 am flight out and 8pm return which gave us 12 solid hours to explore Majorca. Soooo here goes:
P.S. if you plan to drive from one village to other (highly recommend it!), try getting a nice convertible
P.P.S: if you plan to spend more than a day in Mallorca, try renting bikes and go biking from one village to another
