Mallorca part 1: reunion

I know I go on about it, but seriously: the CG is the most patient, understanding husband in the world. The man doesn't bat an eyelid when I announce I'm heading off on another girls trip, just wishes me a great time and promises not to get too drunk while I'm gone (that was a bit of a lie I now realise, but I'm not complaining).

Ms K's work trip to Europe meant one thing: Hola EspaƱa! It's so hard waking up to a view like this every day.

We headed into Palma on our first day, to explore the port city and do a little shopping.

I really question the need for a juice this size. Just unnecessary.

Know what I love about holidays, now that I'm old and decrepit? Afternoon naps. Go to sleep to this:

Wake up and get ready to hit the town! Meh. Who am I kidding? I mean, wake up and get ready for a romantic meal for two.

Riddle me this: WHEN am I going to get good at taking selfies? Someone needs to run a crash course on that.

Day two was a long, leisurely walk to Puerto Portals for some yacht envy, more shopping, and the best couscous salad I've had in a long time at Cappuccino.

Before meandering back home to lie poolside, via the beach.

How's this for wheels (or dodgy knees) friendly? A single level lift between street and beach.

Life is so tough sometimes.


  1. amazing photos :) didn't know how beautiful Mallorca is! did you see a lot of German people? lol 'cause here it's called "the second Germany".

    btw we should catch up over dinner some time :) I will be back in London from next week on!

    1. Actually no, we didn't notice! Maybe we were too busy talking ourselves all the time ;-)

      Dinner would be fabulous, London can't wait to have you back! xx

  2. Oh, I'm so very very jealous! Looks like you had great weather as well!

    1. It was perfect weather - just enough sunshine and breeze!

  3. Casually popping over to sunny Europe for the weekend, very nice indeed :)
    Almost makes me miss Valencia and its bright blue skies and peaceful beaches.
    And shush, your selfies are just great!
