So I’ve been wanting to share my experience at Mallorca’s Son Amar show since last year but I have been putting it off due to the fact that I don’t have any stunning photos to add to the post. You see, when I went to Son Amar I was under the impression that photography was strictly […]
Yesterday marked a very important day in Alcudia’s history and in tourism in Mallorca. Yesterday the very first cruise ship arrived in Alcudia’s port with 800 American passengers aboard. Guess who was there at 8am with three coaches lined up and a ticket book at the ready… yep, it was us.
You didn’t realise that there was an opportunity to go on safari in Mallorca did you! The Jeep Safari in Mallorca is a great opportunity to enjoy the stunning island from a totally different perspective. The tour is offered by No Frills Excursions and is so popular that it is booked up days in advance.
As a traveller myself and as a contributor to others’ special holiday moments, those words are the absolute worst I could ever hear. And, I’m sorry to say, I have heard them. Not many times, of course, but even once is bad enough.
In Alcudia we are very lucky to have one of Europe’s top beaches. From the Port of Alcudia there are many boat trips leaving from the harbour and cruising around the area, taking in the rugged cliffs, dramatic coastline and secret coves.
Ever wanted to feel like Tarzan flying through the forest dangling from nothing but a bit of vine? At La Reserva del Puig de Galatzo you can do just that (except you’ll be wearing a harness not a loin cloth). Zip-lining, bridges, climbing and trekking.
Alcudia is home to one of the most important historical sites in the Balearic Islands, 14th century walls, the vibrant market and beautiful countryside. And all these are sights I can enjoy every time I walk the half hour from my house to work.
On Sunday I had a brilliant time with a group of friends on the brand new yellow and black Taxi Boat in Puerto Soller. And a few weeks ago I had a totally different, but equally wonderful, experience on the brand new Sunset Cruise, also from Puerto Soller.
When I describe Katmandu Park in Mallorca to people, they don’t look very impressed; they ask me if it’s just cinemas. People don’t want to go the cinema on their summer holiday. It’s not cinemas though, it’s a theme park that has rides with screens.
Sunday is Spotlight Sunday. This means on a Sunday I choose a topic or place to highlight for you. It can be anything: it might be related to where I am or what I am doing, it might be related to our current Destination of the Month, it might be something current in the news, […]
I’d like to ask your opinion. Well, I’m always giving you mine, so it’s only fair. You know that here on the blog I write about my current travels and my past travels, and then I have a monthly theme or destination called Destination of the Month. Each month I chose a destination and over the […]
I was just in the office the other day, minding my own business, dealing with clients, answering the phone, giving directions to the market and organising guides and coaches as usual, when Elaine, the commercial from Son Amar, came in.
Do you know Henry? Henry is the most famous member of staff at No Frills Excursions and is in charge of public relations. He is an entertainer, he is a hard worker and he gets more cuddles from the clients than anyone else. Henry is an elephant… As you know, this month’s Destination of the […]
If you are on holiday in Mallorca then Palma Aquarium is one place that absolutely should not be missed: it’s a great place for those who like to discover new worlds which they never imagined could exist… Step into my shoes; we are going for a day out to Palma Aquarium.
Last Saturday I was lucky enough to join a brand new boat trip from Alcudia to Cala Ratjada Market. This new idea comes from Barcos Brisa, based in Alcudia, who offer many boat tours all around the dramatic north coast of Mallorca.
