Turkey, Cyprus, Malta, Portugal, Greece, Tunisia and Spain are the European countries with a perfect beach climate even in October. This time, we risked and chose Palma de Mallorca in the wettest month- October as we were dreaming for a long time to visit the Balearic Island. Palma de Mallorca is the largest island in Spain and it’s full of…PALMS!

As I am unemployed, everyday feels like holiday to me (a more stressful one,though) but my boyfriend and I needed to break the distance for a while and relax in a warm place.  Summer never dies, as long as you have money and the willingness to travel. We got used to book our holidays on off season as there are numerous advantages:

-lower prices: You are able to enjoy super fine hotels and save between 30-40% on your accommodation costs. For example, we chose Java Hotel where we paid 102 euros/ night for half board instead of 150 euros during on season.  Everything met and exceeded our expectations there: friendly staff, delicious & various food,perfect location, modern furniture. The hotel is situated close by a wide promenade of 10 km to the resort of Arenal in the east.  If you don’t fancy to walk between the 2 resorts, there’s a popular mini train which runs along the promenade.

-fewer crowds

-pleasant weather

– local tourist industry still ready to please and entertain.

Along with few disadvantages :

-seniors everywhere

-few places closed

-uncertain weather

Anyway, stay tuned to discover more of the island in the next posts!

Meanwhile you may be mesmerized by the fact that winter is coming, as I can see the Facebook photos from Romania, I will reveal my holiday in Malta, where sun is still working hard to satisfy the tourists.

As soon as I landed there,  the heat hit me together with the amalgam of feelings of meeting my boyfriend. The flight was enjoyable, especially because I had window seats, a tasty breakfast offered by the airline company and plenty of time to spend in the duty-free shops.  Having heard that Frankfurt airport is huge, I became scared of the thought that I might miss the flight. Obviously, I didn’t let that to occur.

When I walked out the arrival door,  my eyes were desperately searching for him in the crowd, but he was buying a coffee for me, instead of flowers. My boyfriend arrived 2 hours earlier than me, so he got everything set up, in what reaching the final destination concerned.  We took  the crappy X2 bus, without AC and luckily, I was inspired enough to stuff the sweater and scarf into my luggage, because those 30 degrees were making me feel like an Arabic woman. Not only did we visit half of Malta by bus for over 45 minutes, but we also had difficulties in finding the hotel. We had 2 hotel names on the booking, so we firstly checked-in at Blue Sea St George, which was the wrong one as there were 4 beds and almost no sea view. We were headed to the right one, La Valette, where the conditions were slightly better, but kinda the same sea view and additional pool view, which wasn’t necessary at all. The room was big enough and the other details matched people’s reviews: ‘ You get what you pay for’.
