New Life on Mallorca

Hello there and happy weekend! Hope you're all having a relaxing Saturday with your friends and family. I've had a crazy week, lots of work, meetings and some nice days at the beach too. I'm trying to publish some news here at least once a week now so today I finally have a new post for you guys.
These photos were taken a few weeks ago when I went for a coffee at the beach with my boyfriend. It was April so Mallorca's beaches were still pretty empty and quiet, just how we like it. It's crazy how crowded the island is by now and the season has just started!
Quick info regarding my look. I bought these boyfriend jeans on sale at Zara and absolutely love them! They're super comfy and can be combined with so many different styles. That day I chose a more casual look and wore them with a basic tee by H&M. I added two cute chokers, one made by my lovely sister, the other one is from Accessorize. A few weeks ago Gola sent me these super comfy and stylish sneakers. I chose the model Harrier Suede Trainer in sky blue because the color perfectly fits my new life on the island. Thus I just had to wear them at the beach for the first time.

So I've been living on Mallorca for about two months now. What has changed?
  • My life has a routine now because of work, when I was studying I could pretty much do whatever I wanted (which was also awesome, haha)
  • I 'm speaking three languages every single day - German with my family and friends, Spanish with my boyfriend and friends, English with other friends and all three languages at work
  • I'm getting used to the fact that everything works a little slower here on the island
  • I'm wearing sunscreen every single day
  • Bikinis are my underwear now, sunglasses are always a must
  • The clothes I'm wearing are much more colorful now
  • I have never eaten as much fresh fish and seafood as during the last two months, same with lemons
  • I'm having dinner about two hours later than in Germany which is quite difficult for me because I'm hungry by 7pm and people here don't eat until 9pm
  • I'm outside every single day which is amazing because in Germany there were lots of days of being stuck in the house because of the weather
  • I miss the trees and green fields of Germany sometimes, however I looove Mallorca's blue sky and the ocean
  • I'm not sitting in a plane all the time, I can't actually remember the last time I've stayed in one country for longer than two months in a row
So these are just a few fun facts about my new life on Mallorca. I'm slowly getting used to the Spanish (or Mallorquin) mentality and lifestyle. Of course it's different visiting the island every month than actually living here but so far I love it. So hopefully it stays like that ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and let me know if you'd like to read more personal posts like this one!

Sa Calobra

Hey there, did you all have a great week? Mine was pretty exciting. I worked, went to Palma with my friends, celebrated my four year anniversay with my boyfriend and interviewed an amazingly talented artist yesterday for Look Mallorca, the magazine I'm also working for. I'm surely not getting bored on this island. Today I finally found some time to publish a new post for you guys.
You know I'm always showing you the most beautiful and exciting things to do on Mallorca, just like I did when I lived in New York City. So today I take you to Sa Calobra, an impressive spot hidden in the mountains of Mallorca. We went there a few weeks ago with our friends from Germany who we met in Costa Rica last year. They're both very adventurous so I thought this was a great place for them. I have been to Sa Calobra many times and always loved it. You have to pass a tunnel to get to the rocky beach and the stunning canyon that is called Torrent de Pareis. My boyfriend and I once did a five-hour hiking tour through the canyon, it was surely one of the most awesome things we've done on this island. This time we didn't go hiking but explored the area a little and had a Mediterranean picnic at the beach. Unfortunately it was still too cold to go swimming back then but the water looked incredible. After spending a few hours in Sa Calobra we went for some ice cream in Fornalutx, a tiny but charming mountain village and also had a coffee in the beautiful town of Soller.
Hope you like these photos, have a great weekend!

Hard Rock Cafe Mallorca - World Burger Tour

Hello my lovely readers, I know it's been a while. Sorry for not posting the last couple of weeks, I went a little crazy because of my bachelor thesis and didn't have time for anything else, literally!
However, I just finished my thesis three days ago and can finally enjoy my new life on Mallorca.
I wanted to publish today's post a while ago but didn't have time because of my studies. It's all about food, cocktails and bloggers. About three weeks ago I got invited to the Hard Rock Cafe in Palma to try their yummy cocktails and new burgers they created for the World Burger Tour 2017. Me and eleven more bloggers from Mallorca and Germany spent a fun morning at the restaurant creating the famous Hard Rock Cafe cocktails with a barkeeper who showed us how to mix them. After taking over the bar and mixing some coktails we were invited to taste four different hamburgers which were all delicious. Let's say it was a different breakfast, haha. We tried the Toro Burger from Spain, the Greek Burger from Greece, the Tennessee BBQ Burger from the USA and the Argentinian Tango Salsa Burger served with some yummy fries. I couldn't try them all because it was a little too much but I really liked the USA burger, You can go try the burgers yourself at the Hard Rock Cafe in Palma until the 30th of June.
I had such a great time catching up with some bloggers I already knew before and meeting new ones. It's always nice to connect with other bloggers. Thank you Hard Rock Cafe for this tasty, unique event!

Cala Sant Vicenç

Hello there, did you all have a great week? Mine was pretty boring to be honest, I'm just working and writing my thesis so I don't really have much time for anything else. Tonight I finally had some time to write a new post for you about one of my favorite beaches on Mallorca, Cala Sant Vicenç. This little bay is just stunning in winter and spring when there are no tourists and the water is crystal clear and calm. It actually reminds me a lot of the Cuban beaches, doesn't it look like the Caribbean with a Mediterranean touch? 
These photos were actually taken almost two months ago when our friends from Germany came to visit us on the island. We went for a little hike around the beach, there's a beautiful path which leads right up to the top of the cliffs, from there you've got an amazing view. I wouldn't recommend going up there in summer though unless it's in the evening, it's an easy path but a trip of an hour and it's way too hot in summer. 
Hope you like the pics, have a wonderful weekend!
