Today we are in Mallorca and I am so excited because I heard they have great beaches. That being said, we are about an hour from the beaches and there are sights to see right in Palma.
We decide to take a hop on/off bus. These are open air double decker buses that give you a tour of the city and the sights. We pay for our ticket and get head phones and a map. The buses allow for you to ride from sight to sight getting off at whatever sight interests you and then hopping on another bus when you are done exploring that sight. We decide to explore a castle on a hill over looking the city as well as the cathedral. The views from the castle are beautiful. The cathedral as well is a sight to see. You can see the different eras of architecture. I am bummed that we didn't make it to the castle where the King and Queen of Spain still vacation. But short on time and our stomachs growling, we decide to stop for lunch. I am so excited to be in Spain. It feels like home. I order my favorite food, the Spanish Tortilla. It is overpriced and not that great but still nice to be somewhere familiar.
Travel tip: Hop on/off buses are great ways to see the city when you are short on time
