Sun, Sand and Sea

This is how Lonely Planet describes Mallorca. And with 25 inches of snow outside and a temperature of 25 degrees, those are words that often describe my own thoughts.

I am constantly on the lookout for new destinations. There is no question that I am a beach person and both myself and my husband are nature people. So when I saw Majorca travel info pop up, I thought I'd take a deeper look.

Mallorca is one of a group of islands off the coast of Spain. Being the largest of the Balearic Islands, most people visit for the beach. But there is a lot more to the island than just beaches. The northwest coast is mountainous, with forests, olive groves and a beautiful rugged coast. Sounds perfect!

I can just picture myself in one of the villas in Mallorca, just feet away from the beach. I have often thought about doing something like renting an apartment....our vacations have been very active ones and it would be nice to simply have a week or 2 or 3 to just relax and enjoy the beach and the scenery.

I'm sure, when we are ready, there will be lots of information on the Internet to help us choose a place. In no time at all I turned up helpful sites like Lonely Planet, Eyeflare and Frommer's.
