quick Mallorca trip


Although I've omitted a few trips lately, I thought I'd share some pics from my recent trip to Mallorca (Majorca), Spain. Beautifully warm, calm, and delicious.  Unfortunately, I went for kiteboarding, but there was almost no wind!

Cool goat hopping around on the rocks on my trip out to Cap de Formentor.

A panorama and a quick video of a great place not to fall down:

Looking back at Port de Pollenca (Pollensa, or Pollentia (Roman town)).


I love markets, and this one reminded me of the markets in Murcia, Spain - check out all the olives!


This island is INNUNDATED with German Ironman triathletes.  This picture captures it all - old but well preserved ruins, Sunday markets, and spandex.  Serious spandex and carbon fiber bikes. Check out this guy chomping down some calories!


 Incredible church from the 13th Century (allegedly by Knights Templar); this was one of more than a dozen side altars:


Incredible ceiling and rear of the church:


Lovely quiet side streets in the old town of Alcudia:


There's a bit of a sepratist movement going on - but they had better figure out a better way to leave graffiti that isn't so easily 'reversed.'


They take their cured ham seriously here; this photo was taken in a typical bar in Port de Alcudia.


Hasta la próxima vez!
