Yesterday was our last day of summer holidays and now we´re ready to board our plane and get back to our life. But first I thought I should share those amazing stores with you.
For the eleven days we stayed in Palma, Galiana Days was our home. And home is the right word because we really felt at home. Creative environment, lovely hosts, just a block away from quaint Santa Catalina, the apartment was a joy and a retreat from the unbearable heat of Mallorca.
Tomorrow is our last day in Palma. We´ve been having a great time, although I have to say, I really wish we could have rented a car. I´m in my thirties now and should be able to drive. Everything is so much more complicated when you have to wait for a bus that takes you where everybody else also goes. And there´s a limit to how much you want to spend on taxis.
Aside from that, Mallorca is gorgeous. We´ve managed to stay away from the worst charter places and have been on a search for the authentic, genuine Mallorca. We ate at small eateries as well as well-renowned restaurants, our taste buds were in heaven from so much amazing food. Pintxos and tapas, paella, fried and grilled sea food, Cambodian and Thai style dishes, there´s something for everyone. I bought a typical straw bag for shopping, culture pearls from a local store, chocolate spread and ensaimades.
We´re on holiday in Mallorca and it´s great! You have the weather, the beach, cava, the seafood, the shopping. But the thing with holidays is that they always make you think more about your everyday life. And somehow you miss it more than you´re supposed to. You start thinking that you should be more creative while cooking, enjoy a good breakfast more often, find the time for a hobby, this sort of things. You hear about people going on a surfing holiday, others on a cycling holiday while you, you´re just happy to be away from daily routine. That´s until it sneaks up on you and you start missing the cat, the dog, your toiletries, your plants, everything. And then it´s good there´s only three days left before going home.
