Special Interview With Mallorca Artist

Today I have a special post: an interview with an artist in Mallorca. His name is Txema Alvarez and apart from being a talented artist, he is also a good friend of mine. In fact, he is Vice President of our Winter Activities group in Mallorca. But his talents span much wider than that.

Cafes Bay

One of the last visits that we did this winter with our Winter Activities group was to Cafes Bay in Lloret de la Vistalegre in Mallorca. Cafes Bay is one of only three remaining coffee toasting factories left in Mallorca. It was an extremely interesting visit and the place smelt so good!

Els Calderers, Mallorca

Well, it’s the beginning of a new week again, which means today is Mallorca Monday. Today I am going to tell you (and show you) about a visit I made in March to Els Calderers. It was one of the last visits of our Winter Activities group for winter 2014-15.

Art Galleries in Palma: Casal Solleric

I visited Casal Solleric recently when I was on the Palma Art Tour. Located on the Born in Palma, Casal Solleric is a wonderful 18th century Mallorcan palace with one of the most amazing courtyards in the city. It is now open to the public and houses the tourist information centre and various temporary exhibitions.

Art Galleries in Palma: La Caja Blanca

La Caja Blanca, or the White Box was the first place we visited on our recent art tour of Palma with our Winter Activities group. It is a contemporary art gallery in the centre of Palma.

Art Tour in Palma de Mallorca

I joined an art tour through the city of Palma the other day. Surprised? Imagine how surprised I was to be there! The tour was organised by Txema, Vice President of our Winter Activities group. Txema is the artist of our group and he thought we would find this interesting. We did.

    The Whole Rainforest Blog

    Searching for tarantulas on the night trek, being almost abducted by an over-friendly orangutan, sleeping in the open-air on an Indonesian river boat, and having the time of our lives in the jungle… These are just a few things that I have shared with you on this rainforest blog.

    Why Stay On A Klotok For Three Nights

    Okay, this is why stay on a klotok for three nights as opposed to two or four, not why stay on a klotok for three nights (or any number of nights for that matter) at all. Why would you choose to stay on a klotok in Kalimantan for three nights instead of two nights?

    Club Allard, Madrid

    When I went to Madrid in January on a gastronomy trip, I dined at four restaurants with Michelin stars in four days. Of the four, the restaurant which surprised and impressed me the most was Club Allard. I had eaten at Club Allard before and also loved it. That was when Diego Guerrero was still head chef.

    Art in Mallorca

    This month, for our Destination of the Month, we are looking at art in Mallorca. Nope, this is not an April fool’s. I’m serious. You probably already know that I, personally, am not a fan of art in general. And I know that that is a real generalisation.
