As the summer changes into autumn me and three of my friends decided to book a relatively last minute trip to Santa Ponsa in Majorca for a couple of days! I’ve never been to this part of the world and it wasn’t necessary on my bucket list but I am so glad we decided to go.
When we first arrived in Majorca is was nighttime, pitch black and we were in the middle of a thunder storm, not exactly what you want for your summer holiday – however, we decided to make the most of it – we had to! So when you woke up the following morning we decided to take of the rain – we started drinking quite early (in hindsight too early haha) and then went to a local tapas bar and ordered basically everything on the menu – cheeses, olives, bread, sauces, oils, Patatas Bravas and the other girls order some meat/fish dishes too. We eat everything and washed it down with wine and cocktails! The food was amazing and we were definitely feeling the effects of the alcohol now. In the evening we visited a few bars and ended up in a karaoke bar until 3am – less said about that the better haha!
On our second bar we decided to enjoy the sun by lying by the pool and then venturing down to the beach which was literally a 5 minute walk from our hotel! The weather was perfect, almost too hot for the white girl. As a kid I never understood the appeal of lying on a sun lounger and enjoying the blistering rays while enjoying a book, music or just silence, but as an adult with often too much on my plate it was perfect! I even caught a little but of a tan – more freckles than tan but a win is a win! We decided to have a quite night after the mayhem of the night before – a nice meal, a few drinks and off to bed! I think everyone was flagging to be honest.
On our last full day we headed into Palma – it was only 25mins drive from our hotel and with another amazing sunny day on our side we took full advantage. We walked around for a little enjoying the site, doing some shopping, eating more tapas/drink more cocktails, walking along the water and enjoying an ice-cream on our last day. I really enjoyed going into Palma, there was so much going on from street performers, culture, sights, boat trips, restaurant etc – I would love to go back and spend more time there, I can imagine it’s perfect for a city break.
I love our little trip away – the island is beautiful, the weather was amazing (apart from the little bit of rain), the food, drinks and company was all just spot on – i’m a big fan of little trips away as you haven’t been away from work for too long, and you come back refreshed, recharged and ready for work! I’m already looking at more holidays I want to take! Pray for my bank account.
