This year we have chosen to not have one big holiday and instead have a few different shorter holidays throughout the year. This way we get to see more of the world quicker and it keeps the wanderlust under control. I have already had a trip to Dublin and a few months later we were jetting off again to Mallorca. Today I am finally sharing my Mallorca travel diary.
Mallorca Travel Diary day 1
Our first day was an early start as we were at the airport for 7am. We were there in plenty of time so had breakfast and the usual nosey around off duty and the shops. Before we knew it we were on the plane and on our way to Mallorca.
The flight to Palma, Mallorca is just under 3 hours, just enough time to have a drink, food and a bit of a read.
I arranged my own transfers but unfortunately this didn’t work out too well! After picking our suitcases up and finding the company we were waiting over 2 hours for other flights to come in before they would take us. It was a very scenic wait and the sun was shining which made it much more bearable.
After our long wait in the airport and the transfer from Palma to Alcudia it was late afternoon but the time we got to the hotel. Check in took so long! We arrived at the same time as 2 coaches of Spanish students, which had me cursing the transfer company all over again.
By the time we got to our room there was just enough time to quickly unpack, freshen up and head straight back out for dinner.
The first thing we saw coming back out of our hotel was this stunning view!
After food, a few drinks and a good explore of the hotel resort both me and Ellie were ready for an early night.
Mallorca Travel Diary day 2
Day 2 of our Mallorca travel diary and we were both awake and up early. We were dressed and in the dining room for breakfast as soon as it opened. By 9am we set up on sun loungers ready for a day relaxing in the sun.
The hotel has a really good entertainment programme that you can join in with as much or as little as you want. Even if you’re not joining in the activities there is plenty to watch from the sunlounger. We did a yoga session, being on mats out in the sun by palm trees is just amazing! Joining in an afternoon water aerobics was a good way to cool down and get ourselves moving after a hard day sunbathing.
After dinner we had a long walk exploring Alcudia town and the beach. The beach is just stunning and the views there are amazing!
I could quite happily spend the rest of my life on Alcudia beach looking out to sea.
Mallorca Travel Diary day 3
Day 3 of our Mallorca travel diary saw us at breakfast again at opening time. Another morning yoga lesson under the palm trees was a great start to a day in the sun.
The weather was gorgeous again so we spent the day around the pool and making the most of the All Inclusive food.
We spent the night on resort watching the entertainment and playing pool. We were lucky enough to time going back to the hotel room just right and saw this beautiful sunset from our balcony.
Mallorca Travel Diary day 4
After two days lounging by the pool day four of our Mallorca travel diary saw us wanting to explore more. After another early breakfast we were on the bus to Palma to see the capital city.
I’m not going to talk too much about Palma as there is a whole post coming up about it. But it is probably THE most beautiful, breathtaking city I have seen. We spent the day exploring, sight seeing, eating and shopping. I was honestly heartbroken to get on the bus back to Alcudia.
Coming back wasn’t all bad as we got to see another Mallorcan sunset before bed!
Mallorca Travel Diary day 5
Day five of our Mallorca travel diary is a sad day. Home time *sob*. We had time for breakfast and a last walk around the resort we called home for 5 days before the coach came to pick us up.
Unfortunately our flight home was delayed by 4 hours. Even more unfortunate was that they didn’t realise the delay until everyone was on the plane. This meant we couldn’t get off the plane and because the plane hadn’t taken off the crew are not allowed to serve drinks or food. (How ridiculous is that rule?!) 4 hours on a hot plane without so much as a drink of water was not fun!
After a long day travelling we were back home for about 8pm and our Mallorca adventure was over.
Mallorca travel diary round up
Both me and Ellie had an amazing break. Mallorca is such a beautiful country with so much to see and do. We were so lucky with the weather whilst we were there as it is early in the year to go. I definitely want to go back as there is still so much I want to see of Mallorca and it really has stolen my heart.
Have you been to Mallorca before? Has a country ever stolen your heart too?
