Majorca jaunt

Date walked: 10/02/2017

:( A few pics of our break in Majorca last Oct. We stayed in the Hotel More in a quiet bay just outside of the old town of Alcudia and did a series of different walks up and down the island.

Up there is the Talaia d' Alcudia , about a 13 mile roud trip from the hotel .

Making our way between the hills . We saw one or two walking groups but all seemed to be making for the smaller hills leaving the hot haul up to the Talaia to us , and boy was it hot .

Never mind the jelly fish ....it's raining .

One day had a walk to one side of Soller , unfortunately while running fast in my walking books for a couple of miles ( mad fool ) did my ankles in . Not a comfortable walk at all.

Had a great walk to the Ermita de la Victoria about 5 miles along the coast from our hotel and enjoyed coffee and cake at the small restaurant there .
