Cala D'or

A few weeks ago I went on my first holiday abroad for years!

Sadly it turns out I have a fear of flying which I didn't have before. I really think the pressure in my head is off, I could feel every slight change in altitude and it gave me an ocular migraine which sucked. But pretty views and went right over the Pyrenees mountains! We ended up not doing anything the first day since we bought groceries and were tired.

The second day it was super stormy, with the heaviest hail I've ever seen and lots of lightning. Annoyingly the wifi and tv weren't working at this point aside from a few Spanish channels (this got fixed a few days later so we had British tv stations, but we ended up watching the Spanish version of cartoon network a lot since you can change the language back to English haha). We also had a nice view of the marina from the living room which is great as I love boats (they remind me of the Isle of Wight).

I fell in love with the cheap alcohol in lots of interesting flavours. We also found cans of Monster that we resealable, which was pretty cool! Although I struggled for food since there wasn't really anything veggie at all.

When the sun came out, it was scorching! Being the end of May I guess it wasn't really THAT hot, but it was just right for me. The pool was way too cold though so I couldn't venture in fully, but it was perfect for sitting on the edge with feet dangling in.

There were 2 beaches nearby, and the smaller one was super quiet in the evenings so we went there to watch the sun set a few times. We also went to a bigger beach at Sa Coma on one day, and there were lots of German cyclists (there were German signs everywhere too!), and a lady with a wheelbarrow of fruit encouraging us to buy pineapple and watermelon.

Obligatory bikini-clad Busted jump.

Did I mention cheap delicious alcohol? May have spent the week being a stereotypical Brit by drinking a lot.

I was sad that we wasted a beautiful day driving around the mountains as it got boring really quickly. The plants there just aren't as nice as the ones we have, mostly super dry earth and cacti. The ocean looked amazing though!

I was also excited to try 'Angry Fries' from Burger King. Wish we had them here as they were tasty! Especially enjoyable when sat by the pool in a swimsuit.

At first I thought I'd be bored all week, but after taking a few days to get into it I didn't really want to leave. I guess I just enjoy lounging around in the sun and not doing anything constructive...although if I could take the weather and put it on the Isle of Wight I'd still rather go there, I think! But I'd go again, definitely.
