The One Where We Went To Mallorca a.k.a. The Really Long Post

Most of this post was written under palm trees listening to Vivaldi, by the pool drinking cider and in airport lounges looking at holiday photos on my camera with my hands still smelling like sunscreen and melon.

We have arrived! Oh I wish there was someone taking our picture when we walked into the house, expressions must have been hilarious! Oohs and aahs in every direction as we went on a midnight discovery walk around our lovely holiday home. If you’ve ever seen any of those Spanish soap-operas from the 90s and thought I wanna live in a house like that! well that’s what it felt like. I still can’t believe it.

And than the fun began! Most of it being in the pool, where believe it or not, a plastic ball is quite enough to entertain up to 4 full grown men 😀

But where the ball fails, there is always…

…climbing on each other’s back


…trying to catch a ball while balancing two men on your shoulders…


…and the fact that you fall every time really doesn’t matter because even when you do hold up for two seconds you always wish you were down again, crying with laughter



A new game was invented. Although we are probably not the first people to throw a ball around in the pool…

…but we must be the first ones to buy rope and set up a court, measure it out, argue over rules and loose our voices in shouting if someone doesn’t keep them.


The afternoons are spent with ham and cheese sandwiches and berry cider..

And the evenings with playing Sevens, Rummy or Heads Up!

The first walk to Port Adriano was magical. Just when I thought the heat cannot turn up any higher, my thighs were sticky and my feet cut by cheap, plastic flip flops, we took a sharp right turn and saw this view

oh happy days… and we are enjoying the sunshine so much. because having a tan rocks and makes you feel like a star. I catch myself shaking my booty at every noise that sounds remotely like music. 4 beers put down on the glass table? Shake it! Babies roaring in the corridor, following you around? Shake it! Sounds of Jay-Z flatly coming out of the headphone left on the desk? Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby!! We are rocking this holiday out!

Game of the day: guessing the price of the daily rental for the boats at the port. May I say, you never EVER get it right!
