I have been missing for a couple of days. Well not really. I went off on a little trip - I accompanied my husband on one of his job trips. Something I practically never do. But the weather has been so miserable here - raining all the time and so cold - that I just couldn't resist this trip. I think the pictures below are a pretty good explanation of why.
Thursday morning (it was pouring rain and 8°C) I got on a plane. When I got off the plane two hours later, it was blues skies, sunshine and 25°C. Location: Palma (de Mallorca), capital city of Mallorca, largest of the Balearic Islands (which belong to Spain) in the Mediterranean sea. A place with a long and colourful history (let me just mention: piracy!). It was just a short trip - just an extended weekend - but it was soooo lovely.
My husband had to work, but I had time to wander around the old quarter of the city, enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful architecture. I will share some more pictures in the next couple of days.
Now that I am home again, wouldn't you know that it's raining?
