Fall in love with the Balearic Islands

Who doesn’t look forward to going on a vacation, right?

If you like Spanish food and culture, there are a lot of beautiful places you can visit between the Spanish mainland and its islands. If you’re traveling from Europe, head for the Balearics. Discover Mallorca on a motorbike, take a stroll in historical Menorca, dance till you drop in Ibiza, or get away from it all in dreamy Formentera.

If you’re after sunny weather, you can pretty much go there any time of year. Summertime is hot and very busy with tourists so avoid if you’re in need of tranquillity. If you plan to explore and travel during your vacation, renting a car is easy to organise from the airport.

There’s plenty to do in the Balearics, each island has something special and interesting.

If you like architecture, you’ll love Palma de Mallorca. In Mallorca, you can visit beautiful churches, monasteries, and old villages. The architecture of Mallorca is beautiful and it’s no wonder many wealthy Europeans buy property there. If you like medieval architecture, take a trip to the medieval walled town of Alcúdia. The medieval walled town of Alcúdia is located in the north of the island. This is one of the best-preserved medieval towns. Near one of these churches, tourists can visit the archaeological site of the Roman city of Pollentia.

For a family vacation, you should visit Menorca. Although close to Spain and France and easily accessible by Ferry, this small island is not as frequented by tourists, and favored by Spaniards. So if you want a real taste of Spanish life, you’ll be spoiled. Do rent a car so you can visit both Mahon and Ciutadella.

Formentera simply has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, and a hippy vibe.  One of the best ways to get around the island is via bicycle. If you want to feel the history of the island, you should visit the historic town of Sant Francesco de Formentera.

Traveling solo doesn’t mean being alone

When you are traveling solo, it doesn’t mean that you should be alone throughout time. It just means that you are traveling on your own, without friends and family going with you. But, you can make friends along the way, or go with a tour group. Here are some ways on how you can make friends when you are traveling solo. To ensure that you have fun with friends. Even, if this is local friends that you have made in the country that you are traveling in.

Going to the places where locals go to at night

This is the best way on how you can make some friends with locals. To go to the places where locals go to at night. Nightclubs or bars where the locals hang out. And, to start a conversation with the one closest to you.

You can start talking about anything. You should just remember that you should never tell anyone that you are traveling solo. This can be dangerous in any country. Just being friendly and smiling to everyone, will make someone talk to you. 

Start making a conversation with people next to you in the tour group

When you are going abroad with a tour group, you will still not know anyone in the group for the first couple of days. And, this can stay this way if you don’t make an effort to get to know the other tourists in the group.

The trick is to start talking to the person next to you. The one that is sitting next to you on the dinner table or that sits next to you on the flight. The sooner you start talking, the sooner you will be able to make friends. 

Make sure that you are open-minded and able to talk to strangers 

To make friends while you are traveling solo can be hard. This is why you should be open-minded. You need to make sure that you are able to talk to strangers, otherwise, your trip is going to be lonely. It is a problem that many tourists are facing. Not being able to talk to strangers, and not able to make some new friends along the way.

When you are traveling solo, you can still have fun with someone. It can be someone in the tour group, or a local that you have met. There is no reason why you should feel lonely, on a solo trip. You just need to make the first move and starts talking to the person next to you.
