A Day Trip to Palma In Photographs

Monday, May 08, 2017

Back in October, Me and Hannah went on a well deserved child-free girls holiday. We booked 5 days in Alcudia and tried to make the most of every single day. On one of these days we signed up to a 'Blanket Trip' as it was offered as a 'Free Trip' by Thomson. Now I had no idea what one of these blanket trips was but it offered us transport to Palma for half a day which sounded perfect!

Turns out a blanket trip involves giving away the other half of your day to a sales team trying to sell you the world's most expensive bedding. Thankfully I am good at sticking to my guns and not buying expensive things I don't need and I got to spend a lovely warm sunny morning in Palma for free!

I do have to say half a day was not nearly enough to explore Palma. It is such a beautiful city, with a large harbour, cathedral and beautiful buildings everywhere you look. I was in my element snapping photos of everything I could see.

The first thing we did was have a look at the lovely view of the harbour where all of the large cruise ships had docked. We then walked the streets of Palma looking at the buildings, statues and shops before heading back to see the Cathedral. We spent a lot of time looking at all the detail in the stone carvings on the outside of the Cathedral before deciding to go inside. We then found it takes so long that we would miss our coach if we went in for the tour. We were gutted! I would absolutely love to go back one day and spend a whole day or two exploring the beautiful city.

Instead we then went and watched some street art and had some paintings made for our children to take back as gifts which was lovely! I think the photographs definitely tell you more than I ever could and so here are some of my favourites from my day in Palma.

  2. I've enjoyed visiting Palma before too. I'm chuckling at the idea of the blanket trip though and having to sit through the sales pitch. I recall the days of the timeshare meetings that were similar. Mich x
