Adventures in Spain – Part One – Mallorca

Adventures in Spain – Part One – Mallorca

If you have read any of the recent posts, you know that we have really been looking forward to our trip to Spain. We snagged some awesome flight deals from Delta and got roundtrip tickets for < $500. We decided we wanted to not spend too much time traveling around and so we split the trip between just two places, Mallorca and Barcelona (read all about the Barcelona here). We had a slight hiccup on the way out with an emergency landing in Detroit causing a missed connection, a reroute to Mallorca, and delayed luggage arrival of ~30 hours.

Those things did cause a change in plans but it didn’t keep us from having a blast.

Mallorca is an island off of the coast of Spain and it is part of Spain. If you are planning to visit, it seems like a fantastic place to bring children, renting a car was a great way to see a significant part of the island in not much time, and it was rather inexpensive since it was off-season. This is definitely a place we plan to return to in the summer and maybe with kids… (do not expect an announcement any time soon).

Our plans for our first day originally included hiking in the Serra de Tramuntana but we decided to drive around instead and probably saw a lot more than we would have otherwise. So oh well, we can hike at home, right? We spent the second day wine tasting at two different vineyards and touring around some other areas we hadn’t visited the first day. Here are some pictures from this leg of the trip.
