Etti's birthday party
Mallorca - 4 Weeks

4 weeks between cycle trips with the intention to simply relax.

We Stayed with Stephs Sister, Suzie so lots of family time, from sitting in cafes to volleyball training and birthday parties. Stephs parents were there when we arrived so we had their company for 4 days then shortly after my brother joined us for a week.

The week with my brother was a week in which we did lots of relaxing and sitting around watching the world go by. We did hire a car for a couple of days and drove around the island - the first day we went to the mountainous area and it was wet and cloudy, the day after that we went to Alcudia and enjoyed the beach and some sun.

Soller, Valldemossa and Llubi were cool, the nicer of Mallorcas plentiful cute little towns that we visited.

Apart from that I had some Corn Flakes here as its a pretty big Island and the people have a different feel to those on mainland Spain so worth a photo. We drank beer and went to more of the plentiful beaches.

The people in Mallorca create a great community atmosphere - they really help each other out, we were lent a car on 3 or 4 occasions, people cooked food and brought it over to the house, people invited us over to their house for food, gave us free things and I am getting a lift to the airport in a van. Hopefully one day I can return the hospitality shown to me.
