Palma, Majorca, Spain (Palma de Mallorca, España)April 2016
With a week before Yannick was due to start his new job and no house sits lined up, we figured why shouldn't we spend the week at an AirBNB in a holiday destination rather than an AirBNB in London (where we would be living for the next however-many months). We looked up cheap flights and decided on Palma, on the island of Mallorca off the Spanish coast. I also wanted somewhere that would be relatively warm in April rather than say, Scandinavia. You can compare the average temperature highs in April (in Celsius) - Oslo: 9.1 degrees, Palma: 15.5 degrees. A no-brainer.
We didn't sleep so well as we had to spend the night at Standsted Airport before our ridiculously early departure time and then 'Hot Chocolate Boy' was on board our plane - not a superhero, but a screechy toddler who really wanted a hot chocolate and wouldn't stop berating his mother for not giving him one during much of the two-and-a-bit-hour flight.
Today's post was almost called: Is It a Bird, Is It a Plane? No! It’s Hot Chocolate Boy!
