My Birthday in Mallorca

For my 28th Birthday this past May we spent 5 days in Mallorca. Mallorca is part of the Balearica Spanish Islands, in the western Mediterranean Sea. It was GORGEOUS!! Our hotel was right on the boardwalk, just steps from the Platja de Palma (Palma Beach). We did a whole lot of relaxing on this trip, and it was absolutely fantastic!

Platja de Palma, where we spent most of our time

Ahhhh...doesn't get much better than this!


Enjoying the Sangria

Beautiful sunsets every night!!

The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma
Gothic Style, began in 1229, finished in 1601

Stunning Interior!
The alter was designed by Gaudi during a renovation in 1901

Light reflecting on the floor from the stained glass

We tried all types of the local Spanish cuisine. This tapas bar in Palma on our last day was our favorite. The rings are fried squid, delicious!

Jewelry shopping in Palma. :) Mallorca is especially known for their faux pearls.

Wonderful vacation! Until next time....
