Travel in Style: Mallorca Photo Diary

 Prepare once you enter this page for your computer screen to be flooded with sea and sky images from all angles- sea seen from above, from ground, from the side...you get the point. The reason for this is I found it impossible to stop photographing this beautiful island in Spain. Everyone that we spoke to there mentioned that Mallorca is at its best in spring. No tourist crowds, blooming nature, warm weather, and the sweetest oranges ready to picked. We organised a rented car at the airport which was probably one of our very few smart travel choices, which allowed us to take daily road trips to all the cute villages on the island. 
So here it goes...
Cala de Deia near Deia village- a beautiful rocky beach where we had lunch and took a nap

Another photo of Deia- this place was so surreal I couldn`t help myself taking photos of everything.

After our siesta our next destination was Soller where we visited the local market and tried their famous Soller oranges.

Next stop was Valldemossa, another little village, famous for its beautiful cobbled alleys, full of flowers and plants.

Next day after a big breakfast (I just love hotel breakfasts!), we headed East of the island towards Pollenca. If you`re feeling active enough then it`s worth climbing the 365 steps towards the top of the village where you get a beautiful view.

As it was Easter there were also some street celebrations which immediately reminded me of the celebrations we used to do back home when I was a child.

From Pollenca we also stopped at Cala Vicenc for yet another beach lunch and of course siesta. By this point I was getting very used to siestas.

 On our third day on the island something completely unexpected for me happened- we went hiking! I don`t even remember the last time I went hiking and it actually felt really liberating to just walk in a deserted place with only my thoughts to keep me company (that and the constant noise coming from my boyfriend). We stopped for lunch at this little mountain cabin (very rustic) where we had a delicious, very old-school cooked lamb.alaro village
