Perhaps the best part of living abroad alone, away from your own family, is the company of great people you've shared great memories with. That includes a few but true good friends you’ve made and those who eventually became much like your alternative family.
I had the pleasure of having some of them. Those who have helped me get a foothold in Barcelona and welcomed at the comfort of their own homes — either to share a great company or did I say great food? Needless to mention, that’s always been my weakness. Do you know what makes it even better? When you get to travel with these bunch of exciting folks!
Talk about travel, the Balearic Islands have been at the top of my summer bucket list for years. There are 4 largest of these islands in the western Mediterranean, off the east coast of mainland Spain. I've been to Ibiza, Formentera, and Menorca and to finally complete the list — vamos a Mallorca! This trip is probably one of the best summers I had. Spending 5 days at the island was a blast and here's the biggest reason why...
Driving around the island's sandy beaches and hidden coves can be extremely fun — especially with the kids and parents altogether. I'm inclined to believe I'm part of the "kids" category as well. It's that kind of family time/bonding with me in between. Totally, there's no dull moment. It does eliminate those stressful thoughts of work and city life. That's 5 days of full relax and fun.
