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.
View from the Hotel balcony

First morning of hols decided to walk up the Talaia.
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 .
Looking down to the blue .

One of the more quicker and nimble footed walkers.

Next day took the bus to Palma and walked to the fascinating Poble Espanyol ..7 mile roud trip .
The Arab baths at Poble Espanyol

Had to have rain sometime ( thunder storms )but still decided to walk on the isla Sa Dragonera so took the bus ( including a couple of changes) to Sant Elmo and caught the ferry across to the island ( rain and thunder had stopped )

Heading back to the ferry

Had a day in Alcudia ( ice cream , beer etc.) and the following day set off to Lluc for a walk along a section of the GR222 to Caimari.
Through the lush woods heading up , up and up .
The path narrows
Local wildlife but no Coati mundi
Once through the gap ahead the views were magnificent
Sunshine on the way back
Took the bus from Lluc to Sa Colobra ( what a ride and took a swim in the bay , Arlene was stung on the leg by jelly fish ( blisters and redness went down after two days) happy times .
View from window in tunnel at Sa Colobra
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.
Outside Soller

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 .

All in all a good break with a few walks plus swims thrown in , what more could you want .
