If you have been following my Instagram page, it is likely that you noticed that I’ve visited Mallorca in the last few days. I traveled to this beautiful island with some of my friends. However, before we arrived at the airport, it seemed that we weren’t going to make it on time to the check-in desks and gate, due to a festival at the airport. I know what you’re thinking, who the hell organizes a festival at an airport in summer break?! Well that same thing crossed our minds, while we knew there was going to be a festival close to the airport and we had to count 20 minutes more on our travel to the airport. These 20 minutes was going to change into 4 hours, until my mom and a friend of mine (the drivers) just went on the different side of the road and pass the party people. Anyhow, as you can see we made it to our flight on time.
When arriving in Mallorca, I was surprised the airport was this big. They even let you off the plane through an aviobridge. After we had our luggage back, we had to look for a cab to El Arenal, a region of the island where we were staying and which is known as the Dutch part of the island. I was surprised that it was only a 10 minute drive from the airport to our hotel. Since it was already late in the evening, we only went to get some food and check out the nightlife of the island on our first day. Surprisingly, I spotted some friends of mine. It was so much fun to see them, some of them after a long time.
On our second day we went to the beach, which was pretty close to our hotel. The weather was really good, the sun was shining all the time and it was about 32 degrees. Fortunately, the sea wasn’t that cold either. Basically, this was our entire second day.
On the third day at this beautiful island we went to the biggest aquapark of Mallorca. It was huuge with lots of waterslides. I think they had about 12 slides for adults. However, I didn’t dare to go in all of them since I am afraid of heights. In the evening we went to some clubs. Furthermore, I made the dumbest promise of my life. Which consisted of drinking beer at Mega Park, a German place in which they drink the entire day, at 10 AM after a night of clubbing. Well you can imagine coming home around 5 AM thinking about your alarm at 8.30 right.. AWFUL. When my alarm went off I felt like I was going to die, LITERALLY. When we finally made it to Mega Park I was sitting on a barstool and felt like throwing up. The worst thing was that all the Germans surrounding us ( count 200-300 people) were having fun, singing out loud with German music and enjoying beer. ENJOYING BEER AT 10AM!!! How is it even possible??? Anyway, around 11.30 we were done with the German music, the beer and just wanted to go back to bed, so that’s what we did, sleep until 2.30 PM. Around 3 we were going to Palma de Mallorca, a city on the other side of the airport, where we did some shopping and checked out the harbor.
In the last 2 days on the island we had American lunch, in a beautiful place named Betty & Sam. Everything in this place seemed like you were in an American movie. Event he waiters wore the clothing from movies. Furthermore, we went to the beach even though it was cloudy, and we went to the club for the last time. Finally, since our plane departed at 9 PM, we had the entire last day to go to the beach. This time, we went for a walk and made it to some cliffs outside of El Arenal. Lots of people jumped from the cliffs into the water, so did I. However, it seemed like I wasn’t going to do it, because I was way too afraid.
After being around the cliffs for a moment, we went back to El Arenal and had some lunch. Afterwards, we were going to the hotel to change clothing, played some games of pool and got a cab to the airport. Here we had some dinner before departure and took our flight back to the Netherlands. Fortunately, without any trouble this time (:
I am already looking forward to my next trip, this time to the Costa Brava.
