I honestly feel like I created a full time job for myself when I decided to post all the pictures from my time in Europe. First, all the editing. Then, deciding which pictures to post and what experiences to write about. I can’t say I regret the time spent, though (and it’s not like I have a job now anyways). I’ve had a lot of fun reliving the trip. More importantly, I’m glad I have the pictures + some of my memories captured for future reading!
The last stop on our trip was Majorca, Spain. I was quite surprised how short the flight from Barcelona to the island of Majorca was…one second I was looking out my window at water, the next a beautiful mountain range appeared out of thin air. Instantly, I woke up Eric from his usual plane-ride nap so that he could take a look at the amazing view. I just knew Majorca was going to give us the relaxation we needed after all the touristy activities over the past week.

We stayed at the Castillo Hotel Son Vide, which is an old castle now turned nice hotel. The hotel sits on a hill overlooking Palma, Majorca’s largest city, and the Mediterranean Sea. We loved the view from the hotel. In fact, we loved it so much we hardly ever left! Sitting by the pool with a nice book was all I could really bring myself to do, but I am glad we ventured out a bit to explore the island.
Our second night, we went into Palma, the closest and largest city near where we stayed. We walked around, took some photos, bought some cigars and ate more tapas. The main street had some great shopping, but I didn’t want to bore Eric, so I passed!
There were trees like this all around Palma. So twisty and cool!
one of the prettiest churches we saw the entire trip (in Palma). This church was clean and elegant. We didn’t go inside, but now I wish we had!
On a tip from Eric’s sister, we decided to spend our last night exploring the little town of Deià. Deià is a small, coastal village that is situated in the hugs and curves of the mountains that sit right on the coast of the Mediterranean. Bottom line: I LOVED THIS TOWN. Deià was SO cute, romantic, and quaint. I’ve never even used the word “quaint” before I saw this town. I use it now. Just wait until you scroll and see the pics!
We had one of my favorite dinners at Es Raco des Teix, a Michelin star restaurant. As I just stated, I loved this dinner. I don’t even think Eric was trying to be romantic…the view, staff and great food just made the dinner that way. You’ll see what I mean below.

Now, I’ve yet to mention our journey to Deià. Let’s just say it was very pretty for me and quite scary for Eric. He was driving a manual car on two lane roads that really should have been one lane roads, that liked to wind and bend around the Mediterranean and the mountains. I only screamed twice.
I was so happy in Deià. Let’s go back. Any joiners???
