Two years ago I flew to this enormous rock in the Mediterranean known as Mallorca (or ‘Majorca’ to English speaking folk) on what would turn out to be my favourite escape to date, subsequently blogging about the marvellous experience. So would I rekindle the magic in 2017?
Prior to the typically miserable month of December 2015, I had never thought of a trip down south to Mallorca - a small chunk of rock floating among some other chunks of rock known as the Balearic Islands, let alone actually go there. After December though, I’m really glad I did.
