I promised another travel post, so here it is. After visiting a couple of COLD countries (the Czech Republic and Poland) over Christmas, my husband decided we needed to travel south, so we spent the long weekend in Mallorca, Spain.
This wasn’t our first trip to “Germany’s 17th state” (yes, it’s that popular with Germans), but I definitely like this hotel better than our previous hotels/Air BnBs. We stayed at the Sheraton Mallorca Arabella so we could golf, and it is gorgeous. These photos are the view from our room. We’re diamond platinum gold-plated or whatever with Marriott since we lived in a Marriott for sixty days last year while we looked for our apartment, so they gave us a sweet upgrade.
The outdoor pool was closed–too cold–but the indoor pool and spa were wonderful. As was the golf.
My husband gave me clubs for Christmas and I’m getting back into it after a 20-year break. Now that we’re empty nesters, it’s something fun that we can do together.
We ate downtown two nights and in the hotel one evening. The food was amazing at the hotel, to include these yummy chia seed pudding things at breakfast:
Now I have to show you a few more food and drink photos, because as my daughter always says, “the camera eats first.” If you go to Palma de Mallorca, we highly recommend Manataco!
Fresh citrus is everywhere in Mallorca, and their fresh squeezed juice is delicious.
The two golf courses we played were stunning. The houses around the course were equally gorgeous. I picked out several where I could certainly make due. 😉
Downtown Palma (near the cathedral) was still lit up after Christmas, and it was gorgeous, so I snapped quite a few photos to share.
You can see that many of the rolladen are pulled down; it is the off-season, after all, so not everything was open. This was also on a Sunday night.
It was a wonderful way to spend the long weekend. We came home to gray skies and cold, so a few days of Vitamin D and warm weather was a much-needed break.
I’ll try to get my photos of Prague and Poland ready to share next week; in the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
What gorgeous scenery.
It really is. It’s one of our favorite places.
