Just looking at these photos makes me fall into an instant state of holiday blues as I look out of my window on the drizzling weather which is now permanent for the next 6 months. But I am going to sit here and try and reminisce whilst I write this post. So I jetted off to Majorca with my parents and sister for a nice, relaxing family holiday. We stayed in a family friend's apartment which was located in a secluded golf resort not to far from Port Adriano. It was really lovely as we shared our pool just with a few other residents, it was very peaceful and at ease as you didn't have to worry about not getting a sunbed or lots of noise. Port Adriano is as the name suggests a large port where lots of boats dock. This place has stunning views especially at night time. It has a real nice strip of bars and restaurants alongside the port front. We went to an amazing pizza restaurant called La Oca, where they sold every variation of pizza possible. It was one of the best pizzas which I have eaten in a long time, and the ambiance of the restaurant was chilled and relaxed with music. I really suggest if you do go on holiday within this area that you have a wander down to the port area, you won't be disappointed.
The town which we were nearest to was called Santa Ponsa. This is a vibrant town which attracts the tourists and locals during the day due to the large beach area with lots of cafes and souvenir shops. As we were staying on a golf resort we needed to get a taxi into Santa Ponsa. We went down into the town most nights as there is a vast variety of restaurants from all different cuisines. We were all impressed with the pricing of food within the restaurants. Wherever you go, you're always going to get your really expensive eateries, but there are also a large amount of places to eat which are much more affordable and the food was consistency good.
From where we was staying the nearest city was Palma. We have been to Majorca twice before and we always make sure we go into the city centre as it is a wonderful place to visit. Palma has a really large shopping area both high street and high end. As I have been before I knew there was a Sephora and I had my shopping list at the ready. I also bought some fashion pieces from Zara, Bershka and Pull and Bear as they always seem to be better in other areas of Europe. It is a really lovely place to walk around and there are lots of picturesque places. Not exactly a traditional spanish cuisine, but as a treat we went to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner which was really lovely. The transport system within Majorca is really great and there are frequent buses to all different parts of the island. Me and my sister also took a trip to Western Water World which is a water park in Magaluf, which is the next town along from Santa Ponsa. We had a great day and despite it being the school holidays the queue lengths were not to long. It is a great place to visit and I always love going to waterparks as it is one of those things you attach with being on your holidays!
We were lucky enough to go away for 18 days meaning we really did have time to take everything in, and just fully relax and take some time away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. I have been back a week now and it already feels like so long ago, and I am already craving some summer sun.
