An island life in Mallorca

File this under “If I ever find myself in Mallorca with a toddler” 😉

Atlas Vagabonds

We’ve been living in Mallorca since the end of August. It’s a beautiful Balearic island in Spain where millions of tourists flock each year, seeking out incredible beaches, exploring its coves, winding through mountain towns and dining in idyllic settings.

The island is steeped in history and its people are proud of where they live. Grand old farm houses, antiquated windmills and stone walls divide farms of olive groves and provide a path on the tiny roads that run between the bigger villages and into Palma de Mallorca.

I used to live here 10 years ago, when I had a job in the yachting industry. Because I loved it so much then, we made this a more lengthy stop on our world tour so that Witty could also get to know the island, learn its culture and taste the daily delight that draws us all here from afar.

Day 1. The start of our weekend in Birmingham

Love Travelling

Meeting my son for a weekend away in the U.K. has usually resulted in trips to London or Edinburgh so for a change we decided to explore Britain’s second city, Birmingham.

My rail journey from home took approximately three hours including one change onto a Cross Country trainthe longer part of the journey. I’ve passed through Birmingham New Street station many times but as it is underground it never looked very appealing so I was quite interested to see what lay above.

A photo tour of Perugia

Some great photography from Dylan…

Shoot from the Trip

Perugia is the capital, and largest hilltop town in the Italian region of Umbria. A university town dating back to the Etruscan period, the collection of piazzas, archways, cobbled streets and steep stairways in the historical centre create a level of charm that is typically Italian. It’s a vibrant town that hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year including the Umbria Jazz Festival in July and the Eurochocolate Festival in October. Why I didn’t choose to visit during this time, I have no idea. Rookie traveller error!

We stayed in Perugia for two nights as part of a wider trip exploring Umbria (click the link if you would like a recap). With an airport on the outskirts of town having direct flights back to the UK, it seemed like a great idea to finish off the trip at this location.

Our base was the unassuming Hotel Fortuna housed in…
