Lots of people think of white sandy beaches and non-stop partying when they think of the Balearic Islands – Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza.
While there’s certainly something to be said for laying on the beach with a book and a cocktail, there’s a lot of island to explore!
From historic Valdemossa where Chopin’s partner George Sand wrote Winter in Mallorca while he composed, to the beautiful port towns, to the azure blue water in Parc Mondrago – Mallorca warrants a good solid week of adventure to experience it all.
We crammed in a full circle tour in four short days, but it’s on our short list for a return!
HERE is an album of our “extra” photos – good, and good for memories, just not good enough for prime time.

End of the World
One of the benefits of renting Avis cars for 40+ weeks a year for the last 20 years – pimp upgrades at Yugo prices. I think we paid $75 for this BMW 430 for 4 days, and spent more in fuel than on the rental!
The Business End
Colette reflects on a fun trip as we enjoy the sunset on our final night. We got lucky and got a cheap, mostly empty hotel at the HM Gran Fiesta as it was their last day before closing for the winter season.
