    Jour 26 Arrivée à Mallorca!

    July 23, 2016 in Spain

    Nous avons monté notre camp dans le ferry!
    Tout le monde nous regardait gonfler nos matelas, préparer nos sacs de couchage... Ensuite on s'est maté un petit film sur l'ipad... Là, déjà, les gens autour commencaient a nous envier... Mais quand on a fermé l'ipad et que l'on s'est endormi comme à la maison ⛺️ (oui notre maison ressemble à ca!) J'imagine même pas la tète de nos pauvres voisins qui essayaient de se caller, tant bien que mal, à moité sur les banquettes ou les fauteuils pour dormir!!!
    Bref, on a trop bien dormi!

    Puis à 7:00 le bateau est arrivé, on a pédalé jusqu'à Santa Ponsa et on s'est pris un petit dej dans le même café que l'année dernière avant de rejoindre Audrey au club de plongée Zoea!

    Nous sommes Advance Open Water.
    Merci Audrey pour les conseils, les cours et "ta patience"!!! 😇

    Plongée sur une épave...

    July 27, 2016 in Spain

    2ème jour de cours avancé:
    1ère plongée : Épave
    2ème plongée : Recherche et récupération d'objet

    Et oui il y a des cours pour plonger sur une épave! C'est dangereux et on ne peut pas faire n'importe quoi! Comme toucher n'importe quoi, vouloir visiter l'interieur et se retrouver prisonnier...
    Mais c'est vrai que c'est tentant!!! Il nous faut un peu plus d'experience pour le faire... Chaquechose en son temps... 😇Read more

    Palma, Mallorca

    April 25 in Spain

    Today we left the boat at anchor and took the coastal bus to Palma, we passed through Magaluf which was definitely close enough. Saw signs says ‘1stamp 8clubs’ that sounded like 8 too many and even though it was only 11am the stag parties were already taking hair of the dog.
    Palma, in the old town, was OK lots of old buildings and churches as well as the cathedral, photos attached. Sadly it looks like we will miss the Palma Boat Show 2018 by 2days! But if the forecast changes we might be here longer and able to go along not that we can afford anything from the looks of what was being set up. Talking about expensive apparently some well off people visit or live in Palma as we found Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Rialto Living, Lacoste and Mallorca Sotheby’s, likely there was also H&M and more McDonalds and Burger Kings per square foot than I have seen anywhere else in world so Kev Shaz and little Courtney were fine😉 We also visited the Juan March Fundacion museum of abstract art but photos to go on face book.Read more

    Day 17 - Palma de Mallorca

    April 29, 2017 in Spain

    If anyone is following... Sorry for all the notifications, but I had to straighten out my day numbering.

    We are starting to get tired out! We docked about 1 but none of us were ready to get off until after 2. Then, we were all happy to pay the 15 euros each to take the shuttle instead of walking a few blocks to see if we could figure out the cheaper city bus system. Finally, after wandering around for only an hour, we were all happy to hear back to the ship!

    Still, it's another beautiful spot.

    We were reminded again of Mexico's roots. Narrow streets, narrow, stuccoed, tall houses, cobblestone streets.  However, the stucco is in good shape, the cobblestone streets are actually made of smooth, flat 6" square stone tiles and everything looks almost perfect. 

    There's a photo-worthy scene around every corner.

    Bought a couple of small souvenirs and headed "home".

    Had the unpleasant task of packing up. We broke it up by spending some time in the arcade and getting a few more photos taken... for which we have been given account credit as a bonus. Then a final dinner and last stop at the Cavern to listen to a band called Siglo from the Philippines.  They quickly became our favourite at the start of the cruise, playing old and classic rock.

    Bei unserem gestrigen Ausflug zum Kloster haben wir recherchiert dass es dort leckeres frühstück gibt 😊also nix wie hin und siehe da es stimmt 😊. Wir genießen das Frühstück dann geht es nach Palma bärbels Handy reparieren lassen das Rainer geschrottet hat 😁😁. Wir verbinden das mir einem kleinen Bimmel am Strand von Palma , und shoppen souveniers. Dann zurück zur Finca etwas essen und dann mal kurz am ballermann vorbeigucken. Entsetzlich nach einem Gläschen Sekt und Bier verkrümeln wir uns wieder . Das schönste dort ? Der Sonnenuntergang 😂😂also schnell Weg vom saufgelageRead more

  • Day20

    Catastrophe starts the day with Bux sweeping my camera into her clothing draw without realising, it's a tense half hour of ripping the room apart before we discover it. If I wasn't already sold on leaving the kids on the boat today, I am now!

    Gab & I are dropped off across from the cathedral on the waterfront. The sun seems to have sync'd our clocks with Dad who has decided to come off at the same time as us, we meet him in the markets out the front and take a stroll up towards the shopping precinct.

    We stumble across Forn Fondo, a Pasteleria famous for their Ensaïmada, but we don't realise their significance at the time. A breakfast pastillo (looks like a mini-empanada) for me and an Estrella (from Gallicia) and I'm ready for the day. Gab thinks she's found heaven in their Meringue, but there's no doubt I won :)

    We walk up La Rambla towards a shopping precinct, the time away from the kids is working, Gab doesn't want to look at the shops apart from a few cushion covers. Another refreshing cervesa and Dad decides to head back to the ship while Gab and I press on. Jam & Queso Croissant for snack at Horna Santa Cristo, another store famous for their Ensaïmada, but we're still oblivious. It was only bested by the lady busking Nessun Dorma, couldn't decide if she was either a lip-sync prodigy or Pavarotti re-incarnate.

    Time to make up for not getting to Bimba Y Lola while it was open during the San Fermin festival, we back track through some allies to find their Palma store, some wonderful open foyers in some of these villas. My cold is re-brewing, time for some garlic prawns while Gab shops Bimba Y Lola.

    We're heading to the produce markets, Mercat de Santa Catalina, the streets around it are packed with little eateries, the market is wrapping up the day, but we find a pintxos bar, perfect!

    Back on board, we catch up with everyone in Signals. One of Gab's new friends introduces me to a vodka lemon drop. Its 5pm, and that's the last drink I can take until well after 10. In fact it takes me two Monsters just to make it all the way to the farewell show.

    While I was trying to find some energy, Fid was awarded the best gamer on the boat.

    There are tears everywhere at the farewell, I can see Bux and her big red eyes from the balcony. A few moe drinks with Dad while we wait for the photo package to be ready then we're off to bed. Fid is already waiting for us, Bux doesn't show up until 2am - we'll have some meltdowns tomorrow!

    Catedral de Mallorca

    July 3, 2016 in Spain

    This is a HUGE 13th century gothic cathedral. Apparently has the world's largest stained glass rose window, one of may inside. Quite difficult to really appreciate the scale, but the first pic was taken from about 250-300m away.
