Vintage Train to Soller

This is not the exact route the train takes but it gives you a general idea of the location

Riding the 1900's train to Soller and then transferring to the tramway from Soller to the Port of Soller is definitely very unique. From the port it is possible to take different boats around La Calobra area. The train ride by itself is a treat. Taking the round trip option on the first train and coming back on the last one was our way to go. The ride starts near Plaza de Espana in Palma Center from a picturesque train station in a private area close to the public transport train lines. The ride offers great views of the Tramuntana mountains with a short scenic stop looking down to the gorgeous town of Valldemossa.

Soller is small and cute with a little bit of everything for everyone. I opted for the local produce and handcrafted earrings. We headed straight to the Port of Soller looking for a quiet spot at the beach with a great view and away from the tourists. I made fresh naan with falafel and tatziki dressing. We had an delish picnic at the beach with wine a fresh local fruit. Anastasia introduced me to Pink Lady apples that are juicy and sweet without being very grainy.

Anastasia is Jesse's lovely girlfriend. I haven't had seen Jesse in 8 years since we worked together on a 60m. We spent most of the day at the beach relaxing enjoying the sun and the view. The sand is thin and the water was cold. I didn't really take a dip just got my feet wet a little to be in contact with nature. I didn't think of bringing a bathing suit but no one noticed I was walking around in underwear.

My mom was also with us. I asked her to join me in Spain since she was returning to Hawaii from spending just about a month in Italy with my sister. Very nice memories we keep from this day. Relaxed and enjoyable.

We tried the dairy free ice-creams made with local oranges before taking the Tramway back to Soller with plenty of time to walk around before taking the last train back to the center of Palma.
