For block leave this year we knew we weren’t going to waste it in Germany. We had 30 days to explore Europe and we wanted to use it to our full advantage and we knew we wanted to go somewhere warm. So, I started researching and found tickets pretty cheap to Palma De Mallorca, Spain and they even had a Hard Rock Cafe there(we collect shot glasses from there). We flew there with RyanAir(a no frills airline) and arrived that night around 5 and went straight to our hotel. The first room we got sucked and we had some issues to begin with so we requested another room which was bigger and almost 100% better. The first night all we did was explore the area around our hotel.
We loved this sand castle.
Palm Trees were everywhere.
The second day we decided to head into Mallorca and explore the actual city. We took a taxi from our hotel and arrived at the Palma Cathedral(La Seu). The cathedral was absolutely beautiful and huge. We then decided to head to Hard Rock to enjoy lunch before we did the hop on, hop off bus tour. With a 4 year old the hop on, hop off bus was the best option for us because eventually he would have gotten tired of walking and want to be carried. The only place we hopped off the bus was at the Bellver Castle which was the first circle castle in Europe. The views from the hill was amazing. After the bus tour we explored around the Cathedral a little more before getting in a taxi to head back to the hotel to enjoy the pool and beach before calling it a night.
The third day we decided to hang out around the hotel and visit the aquarium. We got up and enjoyed breakfast at our hotel and then walked down to the beach. We stopped at a local cafe and I enjoyed a sex on the beach drink(one of the best I’ve ever had) and Daniel had a mojito. We then rented a family bike which Brody enjoyed before we headed to the aquarium. After the aquarium we headed back to the beach and then had dinner at a wonderful little cafe overlooking the ocean.
The third day was really about relaxing and taking it easy as the next morning we had to get up early and get on a plane. We started the day off with a trip back down to the beach. Then we hopped in a taxi and headed back into town to see the Arabic Baths and to see the Cathedral one last time. We also had lunch at a cafe that we ended up hating. We then got back in a taxi and headed to the hotel to let Brody play in the pool and at the park.

The next day we woke up early to head back to the airport to go to Germany and switch out our dirty clothes for clean ones and catch our next flight to Portugal.
