This is your travelling song
So here’s one for the road,
The highway in the cold
This is your travelling song
And I won’t ask you to stay
‘Cause life don’t work that way
Well I can try and fit inside your suitcase
But my feet would stick out of the end

Majorca also known as a classic Mediterranean postcard is the largest island in the Balearic archipelago off the coast of Spain.
Mallorca is a hotspot for tourists seeking an unforgettable Mediterranean vacation and a major destination for European tourists looking to enjoy the sun and sand. Mallorca is divided into three sections with the west coast located by the Serra de Tramuntana mountain chain, the east coast marked by the Serra de Llevant mountains, and the islands center described as “es plas”.Mallorca lets you enjoy more than 340 miles of coastline and the many sun-kissed beaches. Once the sun sets, u can choose to head inland to enjoy some of the wonderful restaurants and wine bars the island has to offer or dance the night away one of Mallorcas many nightclubs. Whether you choose to party, relax or explore Mallorca won’t disappoint you.
The island experiences a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot, sunny summers. The perfect time to travel Mallorca should visit between May and September when the days are warm, and the evenings just warm enough to make nighttime adventures easy and enjoyable.
During my recent trip to this iconic Island I went on a roadtrip starting off in a town called Cala Ratjada, located at the north east of the Island and known for its harbour and the long promenade that stretches from Playa Son Moll to the south to Cala Gat on the peninsula.
I than made my way inland to a place called Artà, where heritage, tradition, modernity, nature and tourism make this corner of the island a must see place if you want to return for some moments to the true Mallorca.
My roadtrip than led me to some of the most beautiful places Mallorca hast to offer with its spectacular scenery on its western side – from the southwest of Mallorca all the way along the jaw-dropping west coast, all the way through some gorgeous old fishing towns and my favorite place in the island called Fornalutx.
The village is located between two mountains high above the town of Soller, offering a taste of traditional Mallorcan life. Expect saffron-coloured cottages and gorgeous streets surrounded by lush orange groves and beautiful mountain views.
