Sunshine and a lush landscape

Just back home from a wonderful holiday in Northern Majorca, Puerto Pollensa and the lovely Hotel Uyal which overlooks the beach and mountains of the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia.
We really did have a lovely time. It was strange to see the lushness of the island after all our snow!  Majorca too has had some strange weather, a very wet and warm March with some significant snow fall on the Tramuntama mountain range. We had one very wet afternoon and evening but otherwise the temperature averaged 24 degrees, just right!
We went to our favourite old towns of Pollensa and Alcudia and spent a day in the wonderful city of Palma. Palma is lovely city with its huge cathedral overlooking the port and the city. The old part of the city is just right for wandering, the squares made for sitting with a coffee and watching the world go by and the large department store El Corte Ingles made for retail therapy!
We have been visiting Majorca now for over twenty years, the island has everything, great beaches, peacefull countryside, mountain ranges, sleepy towns and villages, bustling Palma, beautiful churches,  lovely architecture, art and culture, walking, cycling, just about everything and only two and a bit hours from Manchester airport, perfect!
It was back to work today, lovely to see everyone and catch up. I hope you all had a lovely Easter, Jane x
