This past weekend was a blast! My friends and I rented an Airbnb in Alcudia, a town in the north of Mallorca. We made meals together and hung out at the beach. It was such a great way to spend time with all these great people!
As I mentioned, our Airbnb was located on the shore of a little cove in Alcudía. We didn’t spend much time on this beach but did watch the sunset. Sharing a house together was loads of fun! We made dinners together and talked and enjoyed the company.
Saturday we took a short cab ride to the port. The water here is crystal clear and spectacular! We laid around, swam, and took walks along the shore.
My favorite part of the whole day was finding an estrella del mar (star fish)!!! I was swimming in the water and noticed something standing out against the sea bottom, clearly visible because of the transparent water. I reached down and picked it up in my hand. After some screeches of excitement, I brought it over to my friends in disbelief of what I was holding. SO SO SO cool!!! It was smooth on the top and felt a bit jelly-ish if you poked it. Underneath, It had little tendrils all along the outline of the star and these tickled my hand as I held it, continually dipping it back into the water so I wouldn’t hurt it.
On Sunday, we took another cab to Playa de Formentor. Formentor is the northern most tip of the island of Mallorca. The beach here is thin but stretches along the length of the cove. Here too, the water is crystal and the cove is surrounded by beautiful mountains. Boats dotted the sea and it was a gorgeous blue sky day.
Of course more swimming was bound to happen because it’s the med and you all know I love the med… so lots of “oh my goodness this is gorgeous, I can’t believe this is real life, I am never leaving…” etc. Another relaxing day chatting and sunning with the best of the best in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
A super fun weekend that unfortunately had to end and get back to school and internship but I am so thankful for all the good times!
UGH I AM JUST SO ENAMORED BY THE MED!!!
