Mallorca's Markets

Hey there, hope you're all doing well! Today I'm taking you to Alcúdia's Sunday market where every person can find a little something for him- or herself. There are loads of different vendors who sell either fruits, vegetables, jamon and cheese, or jewelry, accessory and household goods. I always love strolling through those markets, it's a true color explosion and always an opportunity to meet interesting people or try some new food. I gotta admit though that during summer I try to avoid the Mallorquin markets simply because it's too hot and way too crowded, you can barely move.
I took these photos at Alcúdia's ''mercado'' which takes place every Tuesday and Sunday. However, it's not my favorite one, I like the market in Pollença much better because it's bigger, prettier and more authentic.
I'll leave you a list of Mallorca's biggest markets so you can choose the one closest to where you stay on the island:
  • Monday: Cala Millor, Manacor, Calvià, Lloret de Vistalegre, Montuïri.
  • Tuesday: Alcúdia, s’Alqueria Blanca, s’Arenal, Artà, Campanet, Galatzó, Llubí, Porreres, Paguera, Portocolom (Felanitx), Santa Margalida
  • Wednesday: Sineu, Andratx, sa Cabana (Marratxí), Capdepera, Colònia de Sant Jordi, Llucmajor, Petra, Port de Pollença (Pollença), Santanyi, Selva, Sencelles, Vilafranca.

The Nature Reserve of Son Real

Hello there, sorry for being so aloof lately, it's been a pretty busy end of summer for me. As you can see on my Instagram account I'm exploring new places on Mallorca almost every day, my boyfriend also took me to Menorca, another Balearic island where we had a great time with some friends. In addition to that I had a few shootings the last couple weeks so don't be mad that I didn't post for a while ;-) I have so many posts pending - photos of my favorite beach bars, our Menorca trip, different beaches and a special post about our night at Tito's Club in Palma. 
I'll be leaving Mallorca this week, boohoo, but will continue posting about my beloved island since I didn't have much time for my blog here. 
So how's everything? Are you having a great end of summer, did you start university or working, do you feel the fall season yet in your country? 
I really don't wanna leave Mallorca, I've had such a great summer with my boyfriend and friends, BUT duty calls, university starts the first week of October so I gotta go back to Germany. However, the next trip is already booked, I'm taking my sister to London in October, her birthday present. So do you have any tips where we should go, what to see and do in London? Leave a comment if you know some places ;-)
So what's today's post about? Son Real is one of many untouched places on Mallorca where you can explore archeological sites, take a relaxing walk or just chill at the beach. My boyfriend and I started our hike at the Finca Son Real, a beautiful old estate surrounded by olive trees, wide fields, and animals such as pigs, sheep and peacocks. From there you can decide between three different routes to get to the beach and nature reserve of Son Real. The trail leads you through a vast yet well preserved landscape, here starts the relaxation. Once we got to the nature reserve we explored the different archeological sites such as an ancient necropolis, and had a lovely picnic at the beach. You can also take a dip in the crystal clear water or even decide to explore the area on horseback. Since Son Serra de Marina is an almost abandoned, calm and non-touristy place that lets you travel back in time, it's definitely worth a visit! Hope you like the photos, more coming soon!
