Another island, another favorite…

Mallorca. I first went in 2000. After refusing to go to this super-touristy-way-too-German- place for many, many years. It had been a bit of a bad year for me and I needed some vacation from it all, so my friend Jana and I were lucky enough to get invited to stay at a friends apartment for a week. In November. All the tourists had gone home. It was actually a bit hard to find an open restaurant in Portals Nous, where we stayed. So we took our car and explored. And wow, were we surprised about the beauty of this island!

One of the things that I really fell in love with was the light. Oh, this light!! Just magical. I miss it just thinking about it. It became one of my favorite place in the world. Not so much the beaches, but the inland… the quiet Mallorca and Palma. Beautiful Palma.

They call it “The island of the calm”. No wonder poets like Robert Graves and painters like Miro called it home and loved it.

After this first vacation, I came back many times. Even got married here. And we will be coming back and if we are super lucky maybe, maybe we might even live here for a while. Someday.

Here are some impressions from Our Mallorca.
