My Time In Cala D’Or, Majorca!

Hola amigos.

So it is a horrible, wet and windy day here in Ireland, and what better day to write a post about my summer holidays! About 2 months ago I went to the gorgeous island of Majorca in Spain, and oh my I don’t even know where to begin!

I didn’t take much selfies or outfit photos because it was my first ever real ‘sun holiday’ (yes, sad I know) and all I wanted to do was relax and soak up the sun. Can you really blame me?

So Majorca is a beautiful little Island off mainland Spain and we went to the quaint little town of Cala D’Or for 10 days. It was just PERFECT for what I wanted. I am not a lover of hard core partying or tourist towns and Cala D’Or was exactly opposite. It is known for its small, yet breath taking beaches and its white washed buildings. It wasn’t busy or crowded and it was reaching up to 30 degrees every day, sometimes even more!

Like any place in Majorca, there are elements of tourist attractions, but they are kept out of the way and all grouped together so you can enjoy the peace of the island if you want to, or get involved in activities. The sea water was just, I can’t even find words right now, it was just amazing. It is crystal clear and so so warm. I really advise buying a pair of snorkels in the shops and go out in to the deep parts of the sea it really is beautiful!

Now, let me take a moment to talk about the marina. We went to the marina almost every night and we ate there a few times and it’s just perfect! The restaurants are all seated outdoors and are right on the edge of the sea next to all the boats. The marina really was the highlight of the trip and well worth a visit if you are staying in Majorca!

We didn’t stray too much from Cala D’Or because we didn’t have a car but I really wish we did! On our trip from the airport the island is full of mountains and gorgeous scenery. I wish we could have explored more of the island, but that is for another time I guess!

All in all this holiday was just flat out relaxing. I didn’t get up to anything particularly exciting but it was just the R&R I needed! I am still daydreaming about lying on the sand, and it makes me a little depressed just looking out the window here! But maybe that is just a sign of a good holiday!

Thanks for reading!

My Top 5 Travel Bucketlist!

Well hello there.

My heart just craves to travel. I want to see everything, experience new cultures and just ease my mind. I want to go everywhere!

But I do have a few extra special places in mind which have compiled a nice little bucketlist.

Who doesn’t love bucketlists?

If you don’t, then sorry I’m not sorry.

SAN FRANCISO, CA, USA

Well seeing as that I am actually from there, I have been there obviously, but when you are younger you never get to actually experience the real deal. But last summer I got to spend the summer in my home town and I got to appreciate every inch of the amazing place!

Mallorca, Spain

I am about to cross this one off my bucketlist very very soon! I am so excited to visit the gorgeous island of Mallorca. We are staying in an authentic Spanish village with little to no party goers so we can really see the unspoilt beauty of the island. I can’t wait to see some sun and experience some great sights!

Santorini, Greece

I want to visit the whole country of Greece, but part of me is particularly drawn to Santorini! The white washed buildings and royal blue never ending horizon just captivates me!

Amalfi Coast, Italy

If you ever need your breath taken away, just go ride a roller-coaster.

Just kidding.

But in all seriousness, go to the Amalfi coast in Italy. I haven’t been there (yet) but from what I see I am already blown away!

Phuket, Thailand

Thailand is an incredibly unique and beautiful place, but Phuket really intrigues me just that little bit more. So romantic and exotic! I am excited for when I finally make it there!

Now of course there are SO many more places I would love to see, but these are just really special to me so I hope you enjoyed seeing them!

Let me know in a comment where you want to go, maybe it will be a place I never thought about!

Don’t forget to see what I’m up to on twitter and facebook!
