Happy Tuesday Lovelies!
Hope everyone had a good weekend! Justin and I were out and about on Sunday hiking parts of the GR 221 route. The original route runs from Port d’Andratx in the south west of Mallorca, all the way to Pollenca in the north west through the UNESCO world heritage Tramuntana mountain range. An 80 mile hike that takes about 7-8 days to complete for the brave souls who want to hike the whole thing at once. At the end of each section there is hostels for hikers to stay overnight. I’d love to do the whole hike at once but I’m thinking since we don’t have eight whole days to spare, the next few weekends Justin and I can take on a large section of the trail until we finish the 80 miles! New goals : ) There are so many hikes around here Mallorca it will be nice to have a little direction of which trails to choose!
Does anyone have a favorite hike in Mallorca?
Yesterday we hiked a small section from Biniaraix to Cuber Lake it was about 8 miles and took about 4 hours. We attempted to strategize by parking our car at the end of the route, and taking a taxi to where you begin the hike. Naturally there was a misunderstanding with our taxi driver and he drove us to Biniaraix from Soller instead of Cuber. We ended up hiking the trail the opposite direction of our car. Ooops! But that’s ok! At that point we were just psyched to be out of the city and in nature!
Hello Happy New Year lovelies!
I’m not really sure where to start. The last time I posted a blog post was in June… a lot has happened since then. I mean A LOT. Our boat spent the summer cruising around the beautiful islands of Croatia. We walked the walled city of Dubrovnik or The Game of Thrones “Kings Landing” for all you diehard GOT fans (myself included). Got lost within the adult maze that is Trogir, another walled city and an old world heritage site with small twisting alleyways dotted with quaint restaurants and cafes. We sailed from island to island, exploring the unique terrain of Croatia and playing in the salty Adriatic Sea.
When September hit we cruised up to Venice and stayed for about a week. Venice itself is a piece of art. The architecture in Venice is beyond amazing. You could pay to go into museums or you can stand gawking at the buildings for free in between an Aperol Spritz or two, a popular cocktail in Venice. Each building is incredibly unique with art pieces scattered randomly throughout the city. My favorite part about Venice is the ‘bus’ system. The buses are actually small ferries that whisk you away from station to station throughout Venice. In seconds you are cruising through canals with the wind in your hair watching Venice in action from the water. The system was amazing. You could take the boat through the grand canal, and to other islands like colorful Burano and glass making island of Murano.
