"Tuesday Strolls" by Emily Williams: CIEE PALMA DE MALLORCA, SUMMER 2016

 

 

 

Cafes con leche and Good Views

There are so many small hidden streets in the city that you will never get bored exploring.

Tangopan- It was definitely the Spanish version of an American breakfast but it still hit the spot and I got to enjoy the sun and people watching while sitting outside.

Bertoldo - I stopped at this cute little cafe on the corner on the way to cooking class one day. I enjoyed a cafe con leche while people  watching. I could spend hours in Spanish cafes relaxing with a cafe con leche and a snack.

With no possible way go see everything/eat/drink everywhere I have learned to make the most of my time and know that I can’t possibly do everything that I want to here.

FORMENTOR

I am so in love with this beautiful island!!! You never run out of places to explore. We visited Formentor, the northern most part of the island, and it was incredible!

Sara, Emily and Kat

The day we visited, it was very cloudy and rainy but as we say here in Spain ‘Hay que aprovechar!’, it essentially means to seize the day. We climbed the stairs built along the cap de Formentor to get the best views. It wasn’t really raining at this point but very foggy. We were literally in a cloud!

Fun fact: That “little rock” at the end of the peninsula used to be on top of the tip but has since fallen off to create a tiny island.

My friends and I had been taking in the view and snapping some pics when I asked someone to take a picture of me. I turned around to get ready and the cloud had completely encompassed us. What should be behind me is the picture above this one of the large peninsula and cove but in seconds the fog covered it all.

Because of the rain, we also got to see some slugs!!! They are cute little creatures.

After climbing to the cap we ventured down to Playa de Formentor. This is a long, thin beach that stretches more or less the entire length of the coves interior. Gorgeous even in the clouds and rain. Formentor is very preserved and protected. There is only one hotel and it is very concealed, purposefully placed as to not disrupt the beauty.

''Hike to la Ermita'' By Sara Prust: Ciee Palma de Mallorca Spring 2016

Sunday FUNday Hike to La Ermita!!!

A group of us took a bus to the gorgeous and incredibly quaint, Valldemossa. This is the cutest town ever! Every street is so photogenic, covered in stone, layered with plants. So much fun to stroll through.

Before the hike we stopped to “merendar”, or to eat breakfast or a morning snack, before heading to La Ermita. There is a famous type of bread called Coca de Patata that Valldemossa is known for. Of course we had to get one with coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice, which is totally a common thing in Spain. The Coca de Patata was light and sweet and just delicious!

El Laberinto/ The Maze

After our “merienda”, we headed off to La Ermita. The route was along the road, so not too challenging. The best part was definitely the incredible views as we walked and talked. The Sierra Tramuntana mountains have my heart… there are honestly one of my favorite things in the world. And on this particular day, there were some clouds (called nubles in spanish) that hovered over the peak. I was taken aback and reminded how great our God is and how breathtaking his creation is.

La Ermita

La Ermita translates roughly to hermitage. A hermitage is a secluded place of refuge. It also serves as a sanctuary, a place of God. It was very serene, overlooking the water, being surrounded by mountains, and it was actually nice that it was a bit overcast. I really enjoyed the day. It was great to get out and stretch my legs, have good conversation with even better people, and see the gorgeous island I am so blessed to live on.

This past weekend my Mediterranean Cuisine class took a field trip to Macia Batle Winery. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The winery is located in Santa Maria, a short metro ride away.

We began the day with a tour of the facilities. They first showed us the giant tanks where the wine ferments, then the barrels in which it ages, where it is bottled, stored, and at last where it is sold.

Oak Barrels of wine

The barrels they use are made of Oak. The barrels can be made of many different kinds of wood, but Macia Batle believes that oak creates the most beautiful wine. The interior of the barrel can be natural, toasted, or burnt to render different flavors in the wine. The wine will sit in the temperature and humidity controlled cellar for any number of years, depending on the variety of wine being produced.

Here is the cellar, filled wall to wall with wine. The wine sits here to age in the bottle before the bottle gets cleaned and a label stuck to the outside.

Now to the tasting! Our guide started out by pouring us a glass of white wine. She explained that wine has a personality from the moment you remove the cork. She asked us to close our eyes and listen as she poured it into a glass. She described that if it sounds like water, then it is a young and light wine. If it sounds like oil being poured into the glass, it is a more mature, most likely red wine. Next, she told us to smell the wine. Then swirl the wine to aerate it and smell it again. The smell was very changed from the first time. Then sip! Sh mentioned that the first sip is always the most alcoholic tasting one, so don’t judge the wine until the second sip. We sampled both a white and a rose wine. Both “beautiful wines”, as our guide kept saying.

Wine & Tapas Tasting

We also had the opportunity to sample Quelitas, a traditional Mallorquin cracker, with lots of different toppings. There was marmalade, olive tapenade, almond cream, and two types of olive oil. My favorites were the olive oils and the almond cream.

''Cala d'Or'' By Sara Prust: CIEE Palma de Mallorca Spring 2016

Cala d'Or

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

I went on a little solo adventure this Sunday to a new place on the island called Cala D’or. It was a long bus ride, and hour and a half, and I fought with the weather but it was definitely worth it!

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Cala d'Or

There are actually seven calas, or coves, in this area. The bus dropped off right in front of Cala D’or but I accidentally got off at the stop before it. Thankfully, a kind older man noticed that I was dressed for the beach and walked me in the right direction. He was very familiar with the area and gave me some tips about which beach is best. He even complemented my Spanish which always makes my day because it does not come easily.

IMG_0756

Map of all the calas

I explored Cala Llonga, Cala D’or, Cala Gran, and Cala Esmeralda. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to see Cala Ferrera or Serena. But hey, now I have a excuse to go back!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Cala Gran

The temperature was much lower than I expected and unfortunately I was wearing shorts and a bathing suit. I spent the first half hour searching through tourist shops to find some pants. At this point, it had started to rain, I was cold and decided to grab a coffee to warm up and dry off.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Cala Llonga

By the time I finished my coffee, the sun came out! I was so excited so I hurried out, back to the beach to explore. The coolest part about this area is all of the rocky peninsulas that protect the coves. You can adventure from cala to cala by hiking and climbing all along the rocks. I can not tell you how cool this was. The views were incredible and I was just living on cloud nine!

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Exploring the Peninsulas

I think my favorite feature of the island of Mallorca is the mountainous rocky terrain juxtaposed to the clear, turquoise mediterranean sea. I can not get enough of it! I often see the quote that says “Do more of what make you happy”, and this just really made me happy.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

So the rain had stopped, and I had been exploring for about two hours along the peninsulas and the calas, and it started to sprinkle again. I didn’t worry much, expecting it to pass over and bring more sun. But then, I heard thunder! At this point I was at the tip of a peninsula, at least a twenty minute hike from the closest cala, or beach. So off I went, speed hiking and jumping from rock to rock. I was actually just loving the adventure and the feel of the light rain on my skin and the wind whipping my hair. As I turned a corner, practically rock climbing along the ridge, I saw a man fishing and said “Hola”. I stepped to walk behind him and almost squashed the big fish he had just caught! He laughed at my surprised reaction.

Enjoying a little bit of the Sunshine

Just a few moments later, I reached the cala just in time to hustle to catch the bus home. At this point, it was raining but not pouring. About a minute after I had boarded the bus, it started to downpour. I had just made it, thank goodness!

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Even though I had some trouble with the weather, I loved the adventure! This part of the island is absolutely breathtaking, the water is crystal clear and blue. The perfect way to spend my Sunday!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Today, I think I was most thankful for my rain jacket because without the jacket I would have been frozen and soaked. I am also thankful for my iPhone camera because I could attempt to capture the beauty that I saw, even though the the pictures don’t do it justice. Oh man, I just love this island! A huge thanks to everyone who helped me get here. I really am so grateful for you supporting me and helping me have the opportunity to explore the world. Being abroad is without a doubt the coolest experience I have had in my life.

Until next time!

Besos y hasta luego, Señorita Sara

''SUNNY SOLLER'' BY KATRHYN MALONEY : CIEE Palma de Mallorca Spring 2016

Entrada 11

Name : Kathryn Maloney

University : Providence College

Nikki came to visit this past week and we went on a two day overnight hike to Cala Deia and Soller, which were seriously two of the most beautiful and breathtaking places I’ve ever been in my life. We started off on the hike to Cala Deia with the rest of my abroad group by taking a bus there to our hostel. We had a cute little hostel in the middle of the town, which was adorable, and hiked around there for a while. As we began our hike, we saw a bunch a sheep and lamb up on the mountains that were seriously SO adorable. I actually got on video a mom sheep and her two lambs climbing up these rocks and one of the lambs was so tiny that it didn’t make it up. However, the mom didn’t realize and kept on walking and the baby lamb started freaking out and screaming all over for its mom. Then, it finally got up the big rock but when it got to the path to go find it’s mom, it saw us standing there and started freaking out even more and began to run the wrong way! So we were trying to help it by standing in the way of the path so it would be forced to turn around and go the right way but it just kept screaming and bahhhh-ing! Finally, it saw it’s mom and I got the whole thing on video when they reunited it was the cutest thing ever. But anyways, moving on, we got to Cala Deia cove which was essentially a cove surrounded by mountains and a tiny beach. It was so cool because all the waves kept hitting the rocks and crashing all over the place. I don’t even know how to describe the beauty of it so I’ll just post pictures at the bottom of this post. After taking about a hundred pictures, we hiked back up the mountain and decided to grab something to eat. We ended up going to a Chinese place, random I know, but it was soooo good. After that, we headed back to the hostel and hung out with our friends playing a bunch of card games and “left, right, center” which was a ton of fun. After that, we decided to hit the hay because we had a six hour hike the next day to Soller.

In the morning we woke up at 7am, probably the earliest I’ve gotten up in a very long time, and began the hike early. It was amazingly beautiful but actually quite hard! I found myself having to even take a break to catch my breath for a second because we were seriously going straight up at one point. But the hike was so cool because it reminded me a lot of the Adirondacks with all the trees and things like that. It was definitely not the typical Mallorca that you’d normally think of. Then we finally got to the top and the view was incredible. We only ended up staying there for about 15 minutes though because we needed to hike back down so we could see the Port of Soller before having to catch the bus back. Half way back down the mountain we stopped for lunch and sat on the ledge of a mountain overlooking the entire Port of Soller. It was the most amazing view I think I’d ever seen. The water was just so blue and the mountain surrounding the cove went as high as the clouds. Eventually, we walked all the way down to the beach area where Nikki and I collected a ton of sea glass, like I’m talking about 60 pieces, and just hung out in the sun. The air was so warm it was amazing and we even got to have some Sangria! Then we ended up taking the 4pm bus home, which was great because it gave Nikki and I a lot of time to explore Palma and we got to go to the beach there and see the Cathedral at sunset, which was gorgeous.

After the hike that weekend and even just walking around Palma and showing Nikki all of the cool things it has to offer, it made me realize just how lucky I am to be here. Mallorca is seriously one of the most beautiful places in the world.

‘’Es Trenc’’ is a famous beach located in the south coast of Majorca.  This wonderful beach is not attached to any resort and it is surrounded by a wild and natural feel. It is located between the very small town Ses Covetes and the larger holiday resort Colonia Sant Jordi.

‘’Es Trenc’’ It is the longest beach in the south of the Island, so it has more or less 2km of golden sand and crystal clear water. During the summer such a place receives millions of tourists amazed by its wonderful and crystal water. Most of people compare this beach to the ones that are in the Caribbean.

Well isn’t this place adorable? Rosevelvet Bakery is a little cafe hidden on a side street but definitely a gem! The glass front makes it so open and inviting. Once  you enter, the cafe is small but set up just perfectly with three different areas to sit which make it feel very comfortable and spacious. I love the decor, it is modern with a touch of rustic.

The first thing you see when you walk into Rosevelvet Bakery is a glass case full of incredible desserts and sandwiches… but most importantly desserts! Behind the case is the espresso machine, always a good sign, and they even had an aeropress and a chemex!!!

The first time I visited Rosevelvet Bakery I decided to try the “tarta de zanahoria” (carrot cake) and it was so good. The icing was sweet but it perfectly complemented the spice filled cake beneath it. After this, I knew I had to come back and try something else from the menu!

When I returned, it was the most beautiful afternoon after class and my internship. I wasn’t planning on stopping in but happened to walk past. I ordered a cafe con leche de almendras (essentially a latte with almond milk) and a piece of cheese cake. I decided to sit in the patio area in the back to enjoy the weather.

This cake was delicious! Probably the best cheesecake I have ever eaten! The texture was perfect and not too sweet. And the coffee was on the sweeter side for my liking but still a really good! I spent over an hour just enjoying the day, eating my cake, sipping my coffee, and living my life in Spain haha.

''Today is a great day to smile''!

When I was finished, I met up with my friend Emily to explore more of Palma. We wandered and chatted about the world. She took me to this really cool museum where there is patio where you can overlook the city. It was gorgeous and I got to see Palma from a different perspective than I normally do. I just really had a great day!

Until my next cafe or beach adventure,

Besos! ~Señorita Sara
