Here I go again

I've just come back from a few days in Palma, Majorca.  It was quite unexpected; my daughter just phoned me up last week and said "Do you want to come away with me next week?".   
She wanted it to be an active holiday and I don't do action in the heat, so, bless her, she found a lovely walk for us to do on one of the days which was mainly in the shade.  
We hired bikes another day and cycled to El Arenal which was 28 miles altogether.   I don't think I've cycled more than 10 miles before but the bikes were sooo comfortable!  There is a cycle path along the coast with a breeze most of the time, so it was very nice. 
Unfortunately I lost my camera while we were there, along with my holiday photos of course (I think I stupidly left it on a bench).  Luckily my daughter had taken a lot on her phone too, but 98% of them featured one or both of us, and I don't like putting recognisable photos of us on here so I haven't got much to show you. 

This is one of the many signposts along the walk.  I was very impressed with them, they're a lot better than we have in England - even tells what length of time you've got left to walk   

You can see the cycle path on the left in this picture

The harbour was just across the road from the hotel we stayed in.  


  1. What a shame about your camera. It looks like a very nice place for a break away.

  2. Such a shame about your camera, but it sounds wonderful. I remember going on my first holidays without my parents and when I showed my mum the photos she asked why there weren't more photos of the landscape :0)

  3. What a lovely break, that beach looks almost deserted (minus the umbrellas) just the way I like them! x

  4. How lovely to be invited on a spontaneous trip away and so glad you enjoyed it. Really sorry to hear about your camera. It's so frustrating when you lose something. It looks a lovely place to visit and fabulous that you cycled places too. x

  5. That all looks wonderful. What a shame you lost your camera though. I think you're very wise not putting personal photos up. I am a lot more wary of the internet now than I used to be.

  6. What a lovely thing to do, I hope insurance covers the loss of your camera.
