Palma | Sightseeing In The Capital

The capital of Mallorca, Palma is a city I could wander around for days on end. I first visited for a city break in 2014, and made my way back in October for a last minute holiday in the sun in the nearby resort of Playa de Palma. Although the…

Palma | Sun, Sand and Cycling

After a busy few months at work, I was in desperate need of a break away. The sun beating down on me, a spacious pool, good food and absolutely nothing on the itinerary but a few books and regular sun cream top ups. As it got closer to the time…

Postcards from…Playa de Palma

After my first visit to Palma in 2014 for a city break, I absolutely fell in love with the city. The food, the weather, the language, the architecture, the winding side streets…there are many, many reasons I have been keen to get back there ever since. Booking a last minute…

TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma

On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds – interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool. I thought it was a bit ambitious, and didn’t hold much hope of finding an affordable hotel in a great location with a pool. But then…

Taste of Palma: Street Art

When I was planning a trip Palma, images of sunshine, cocktails, tapas and amazing churches sprang to mind. Not once did it occur to me that there would be amazing sculptures dotted around the city. But the city is in fact brimming with loads of great sculptures around every corner,…

Postcard from…Palma Cathedral

One of the big sights to see in Palma is the impressive Palma Cathedral. I love Palma, I love churches and I love everything Gaudi has turned his hand to, so I knew I was going to love Palma Cathedral! There was no way I could leave the city without…

Postcard from…Gaudi

My favourite church of all time is La Sagrada Familia, designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi. When you wander through Barcelona, you can see his influence all over the city. So I was majorly excited when I found out that Gaudi had been involved in the design of Palma Cathedral.…

Palma | Bus tour fun and perfect endings!

Our last full day in Palma, yesterday was our last chance to get everything done that we’d missed so far. And the best way to fit everything in and see the top tourist sites? Bus Tour! That’s right, we went full on tourist and grabbed ourselves a couple of tickets…

Palma | Public baths, palaces and even more churches! 

Yesterday was expected to be a washout – heavy showers, thunderstorms, the lot! But while the thunder rumbled in the hills, there was only the odd shower throughout the day, meaning we had a bonus day to explore that the weather forecast had originally written off. Not wanting to push…

Postcard from…a Mallorcan farm? 

While I’m in Palma and checking out the sights, I’ve kept an eye out for some great postcards to add to my collection, and to also remind me of the great things I’ve seen.  This postcard does neither – I haven’t seen any pigs and I don’t really need a…

Palma | Feasts, churches and road mazes! 

Our second day in Palma started with a bang. Literally. As we went to leave our room, we couldn’t open the door. A quick call to the reception and they sorted it out with a hard shove to let us out before quickly fixing it. Finally on our way, it…

Palma | Travel, sights and stunning vistas

I love midday flights. There, I said it! I know we should want the amazing 5am flights so we can jump straight into our first day, but I’m way less stressed being able to get up at a reasonable time and be well slept. So after waking up and finishing…

Palma is go!

After a few really tough months, I’ve finally got a break booked! My boyfriend and I are heading off to the (hopefully) sunny island of Majorca for a city break mashed with a pool holiday. Based on our usual time of booking, we’re way in advance this time as we’ve…
