Biking Majorca: Short trip to free your mind

By | Spain, Uncategorized | No Comments

This post is especially dedicated to all my European sporty readers. I am not very much into race biking, but I love to ride a light and fast bike once in a while. This year I decided to do a 4 day short trip to my beloved Island Majorca, Spain to go cycling with my dad.

People who race bike, have probably been to the island. This is especially to all of you, who like biking, but have not done race biking before – because… you don’t need a race bike. You can simply book a hotel in the North East of the island and either rent your bike through the so well known Huerzeler company or any other bike shop.

Usually people go to the island in summer time, when it is indeed beautiful as well. But in spring time, between late march and beginning of may, biking this island is a pure treat. Foremost, the island is blossoming in the most diverse and amazing colors. Biking through this picturesque and tranquille landscape is like big spa. It kicked so much energy in my body and felt like a meditation at the same time. I returned after four days as though I had been away for weeks.

I really recommend going! Give it a try during a prolonged weekend next year and led me know about your trip! To me it was really romantic even with  dad :-). Meanwhile I am trying to convince my mum to join my dad on his next trip to Majorca on an e-bike. I know she will love it, but she is still held back by the idea of cycling the island for several days…

Majorca spring time: Uncountable wildly growing flowers

By | Spain | No Comments

This is only one of many flowery meadows of Majorca, Spain in spring time. Only two hours flight from Germany you can experience a beautiful island at its full wild blossom. These endless fields of colorful flowers in bright colors reaching from all sorts of yellow, to red, purple, white and pink are beyond imagination. A perfect inspiration for your garden or even balcony back home. A piece of the world’s natural beauty.

Finca Majorca: Outdoor Cooking

Family Retreat in Majorca, Spain

By | Spain | No Comments

Before I went to Majorca for the first time, I absolutely did not want to go. I expected it to be terribly touristic and “German-invaded”. Luckily, reality sometimes does not meet expectation for the good.

Living in Majorca for 3 months for an internship years ago proved me entirely wrong. It is such a stunningly beautiful island: Antique houses built of sandstone, tiny villages, fields of orange and lemon trees, picturesque mountains and turquoise beaches. Yes, there are extremely touristic areas and you can avoid those easily.

Wanting to share this experience with my family, I looked for a romantic Majorcan cottage house in the mountains (spanish: finca) to stay for a couple of days. I discovered this romantic, quiet eco-resort-like Majorcan finca in Fornalutx. If you are not desperate for a swim, one of the most beautiful areas on the Island. It’s a privately owned house, rented out through aribnb by an amazing host, Frederic. So if you are ever looking for a family escape, I highly recommend to check this out: https://www.airbnb.de/rooms/2129607
