Mallorca in February

16 Comments

Hola my friends!

This time we traveled by plane… since crossing over to Mallorca Island  in our caravan could be hazardous. 🙂 Mallorca has no campsites anyway… so we decided to rent an apartment. I found a great deal,  because February and March are off season. Even renting a (new) car for two months and 4 days cost only 340,00 Euros!

Just click on photos  to enlarge.

Because good deals are sometimes booked years ahead, I booked last April. We were really excited, since we have never spent a vacation in one spot so long… in other words, we decided to test the snow bird thingy.  We checked the temperatures for this time of year.  The temps were always  between 60 and 75 degrees. So you can imagine the shock when  the first 8 days were just above freezing, rainy, and hurricane winds. When speaking with folks around us, they looked surprised at our naive trust, confirming  that the cold temperatures are absolutely normal for this time of year. So what does this tell us?  Don’t trust those temperature sites… they are often sponsored by travel  online sites….. need I say more?

To be honest with you, I love it when it’s stormy outside, especially when we can see the Mediterranean sea churning like a washing machine, right outside of our glass sliding doors.  Perfect weather to hammer away at my lap top and work on my second novel, (more about that another time. 🙂 ) Hubby reads the newspaper, watches  soccer, and meanwhile the Olympic games… shhh… don’t tell him… but I welcome this weather.

When a sunny day does come, like yesterday, all the more we rejoice, and OOO and AAA at all the glorious scenery sparkling in the sunlight .  Take a look… the following  shots were from our outing yesterday.

 

Hope you enjoyed the photos! If so please share and or leave a comment…. I love to hear from you too!

Waving to you from Mallorca,
Angelika

I'm an author on the go. Give me a caravan, laptop, camera, and Hubby at my side, ( not exactly in that order), and I'm on a 'roll'.

  1. I love your cheerful website, Angelina. You have all your loves in one place, your books, photos, stories. It’s been years since I was in Mallorca. Now I’m looking forward to my next trip there. Fabulous photos too.

  2. Yes, it’s true… all my loved ones are in one place… now if my grandchildren were here too, I would really flip out. :–) It’s only a good two hour flight away, I’m sure you will visit here soon too.. you are inflicted with the travel bug. 🙂

  5. You have outdone yourself with this group of photos, Angelika… supported by your thoughts, the whole of it makes me envious (not in a bad way). Texas is big and has a lot to offer, but nothing like this! Thanks for letting us travel with you to this gorgeous place. I wanna go. I wanna go. I wanna go.

  12. Thank you so much for your kind words. Hopefully I will be publishing my new novel this year. It seems to be writing all by itself. 🙂

  13. I can’t remember how to log into my WP account, so hopefully this will still show up. Gorgeous photos, Angelica! I had no idea Mallorca was so beautiful. I love the rock formations, especially the slated rocks. So stunning against the sea. That boardwalk is a photographer’s dream! I’d be out walking that every day if possible! How far have you walked it so far?
