To my UK friends and family it might seem to be no big deal, since you can get there in a matter of hours, but it was a much longer trip for us - still worthwhile, though! The weather was absolutely perfect; couldn't have asked for better. No rain in the two weeks, and temps just moderately warm.
To be honest, it didn't seem much like Spain; lots of tourists, with massive cruise ships coming in every day, so we were hard put to find anyone speaking Spanish.
|Taken from a beach a little further along the coast...on its way to Palma Mallorca...ready to loose thousands of passengers into the city to go souvenir hunting! We did plenty of that ourselves! Why? I guess 'cause it's the thing to do!|
Restaurants catering to us tourists, so not many 'typically Spanish' meals, either. But we can't complain. We were right on the Mediterranean Sea, and the views from our hotel room were stupendous!
