Palma Photo Diary

Last week I took a five night trip to Palmanova, a holiday resort near Palma, Majorca, with my grandparents and obviously the trip had to be made into a blog post! I’ve already got a Majorca photo diary on my blog, but this time I decided to switch up my editing style and I love it (even if I do say so myself)!

The first full day of the trip was spent in Palma city, where we took a look around the Cathedral (โ‚ฌ7 per person) followed by a bit of retail therapy at the nearby shops, then the dreamiest of Monday morning coffees at ‘The Lennox Pub’ opposite the Cathedral which offered the perfect people watching spot shaded by greenery and flower filled walls of traditional Spanish buildings.

We decided to spend our second day in Soller and took the hour long mountain train ride from Palma which gave us amazing views across the town and dropped us of right next to the centre. We grabbed a bite to eat in the sun before walking to the seafront, which turned out to be over an hour away, but we we’re non the wiser until we we’re sweating on the side of a motorway with the sea no where to be seen! If you ever decide to take the same route, take my advice and get a taxi!

Wednesday was spent wandering around Andratx market (a fifteen minute taxi ride from Palmanova) and browsing the jewellery, food and knick-knack stalls before making time for a coffee and crepe stop then heading back to the hotel for an afternoon of sunbathing!

We spent our last full day wandering around the nearby beach town of Santa Ponsa, before heading back to Palmanova and checking out one of the most Instagrammable cafes I’ve EVER seen- ‘Max Garden Restaurant’- which had all the marble, pink and gold a blogger could ever wish for, along with accommodating hosts who were clearly used to people getting flatlay’s of the food and new profile pictures against the wall paper as they never batted an eyelid when I made a full tour to get snaps for the ‘gram!

    Palmanova looks gorgeous! I always admire the cathedrals bloggers visit because they look stunning and it’s amazing how long they’ve been standing. I love how you got to see all sorts of views. Everything looks so picture perfect!
