Newsletter II, CIEE Palma de Mallorca, Summer 2015 Session I

GUARDIAN ANGELS ACTIVITIES

Imagen1- Beach games: During their first day completely installed in Palma, our students went to “Illetas” with their Guardian Angels. This is a local beach of Palm where they had the chance to play beach games, snorkeling and soaking up the sun. This activity also helped them to know better each other as well as their host home.

- Biking Palma Bay:After such a week in Palma and before starting their first free weekend, our students couldn’t miss the “Biking Palma Bay” activity with their Guardian Angels. Departing from “Passeig del Born” they went biking along the beach of Palma to Ca’n Pastilla, where they had free time to discover the place, one of the most touristic ones in Mallorca.

- Ruta Martiana: The second Tuesday in Mallorca (the first relaxed one) couldn’t be missed without a very typical Spanish activity: the “Ruta Martiana”. From 8pm people all over Palma gather in the same area of bars and have a tapa plus drink for a very cheap price. Our students really enjoyed the activity discovering this (unknown for them) Spanish tradition.

Excursions: Boat from Sóller to Torrent de Pareis

Our students’ first Thursday in Mallorca was spent the best way possible, on an excursion. First of all our students went to Sóller, a small town located in the north of the island. They walked by its harbour and then took a boat to “Torrent de Pareis”, a must excursion in Mallorca.

From the boat they could see all the wonders of this island as well as one of our top beaches “Sa Calobra”, where we stayed. While some of them decided to relax in the beach, others dared to go hiking from the mouth of the torrent and exploring such place.

Excursions: Pollensa, Formentor & Ca’n Picafort

During their second weekend, our students went on an excursion to the North-West of Mallorca.  First of all they visited “Pollensa”, one of the first Christian towns of Mallorca. From there they walked to a scenic viewpoint through a staircase of 365 steps, representing the Calvary of Christ each day of the year.

After this tour we headed to “Formentor”, one of the most incredible sceneries of the island where our students pictured every corner of the place. And then, we stopped at its beach, one of the most pristine ones of Mallorca.

The final destination of the excursion day was “Ca’n Picafort”, a beach located in the bay of Alcudia belonging to Santa Margalida, where they had the chance to relax after such exploring day.
