Back again after a few weeks off blogging and tweeting. Unfortunately it was impossible to give up the internet though, the way I did last August. Oh well, maybe some other time!
Anyway the title of this post is a very big clue to our next holiday destination...
...we're heading off to the city of Palma de Mallorca! We'll be there later in September for a short city break and are looking forward to it. Mallorca, Majorca, call it what you want, has always been a very popular holiday destination over the years but we've never been there. Most people who fly to Palma then get on the transfer bus to many of the island's resorts and totally miss out on the delights of the city, apart from maybe a day trip there.
I first became interested in the city whilst researching cruise itineraries last year. Whilst we were looking at options for a city break, Palma unexpectedly came into the equation and seemed just right for what we were looking for.
It will be our first trip to Spain since our spring trip to Barcelona in 2004. Palma looks like a miniature Barcelona in many ways: an architectural feast for the eyes, lots to do, see and explore, and of course the big highlight of our holiday as always will be enjoying the local food and drink :) Time and loads of other stuff permitting, The Palma Diaries will be posted on here around the end of September, with all the usual gratuitous food photography and scenic views.
