This post is ultra late. I was knocked to the floor with a bad flu. It put me back a week not to mention it was also very frustrating and aweful. Being sick and having to function as normal is a reason to feel sorry for yourself.But now I am back and I feel great, so no need to dwell on it! I have been wanted to share some picture from our recent adventure!
so…I recently turned 30 and I was bound and determined to do something special. This is what I chose: 2 weeks with my family somewhere warmer than Germany. We decided to go to Mallorca. Mallorca (for all you wondering Americans) is an island off of Spain. It is an island that has 2 million vistors a year. I think 80% of those tourists are German. The island is known for loud parties and crazy strips of hotel covered beaches. BUT, it is not only such horrible tourist craziness. I discovered Mallorca is a really charming and lovely place. January and February are the coldest months and everything is closed, but I didn’t care. As long as it was warmer and friendlier and more beachy than Germany, I was fine.
We left very early. We took the tram to the train to the bus to the plane to a rent a car to get to our little place. I liked it. Sam liked it. The girls liked it. Traveling is fun.
This is the tram.
The train.I gave each of them their backpacks full of travel goodies. A few new toys, some small books, pens to draw with, paper and yummy snacks.We finally arrived in Berlin Airport and got to watch the Olympics while we waited. We were already wiped out by this point. The flight to Mallorca is actually really easy and the girls did great. But traveling is traveling, and traveling with small kids is a special experience, so, we were happy to be there. We got to our place pretty late and the next day we went to the grocery store and we went exploring in the town we were staying in; Portocolom.It had been raining a lot last winter which left everything a lovely juicy green.I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to see shells and smell salty air. It was healing for my strained soul. Being there was what it was supposed to be: relaxing and soothing. We are so deprived of sand that we found a pitiful spot and enjoyed it to it’s full potiential. The Hu thought it was a great time to build her first sandcastle of the year. This is a sandcastle. Amazing isn’t it?Then they built sandcastles everywhere they could. The first day was stormy and cold, but we liked it.
Stay tuned there is more to come. This time, I am not planning on getting sick and taking 3 weeks to post. It will come sooner. Thanks for staying interested, dear Bloggie readers.
