There’s very few emails I dislike receiving. I love my job! However there’s also only a few emails that I get extremely excited about. One of those such occasions was being invited to visit Mallorca at the end of last year.
Clara and Rafa from Handisport said “do you want to come for some winter sun, try out sailing, mountain trekking, blokarting, and tour the capital Parma?”. I was like errr YES. Such a fantastic opportunity right?
So Kasia and I flew on a Monday and had one of the smoothest flights ever. So good I tweeted EasyJet a big thank you. We were greeted at Parma airport by the very happy and helpful driver Hugo from Autocares Adrover. He took us to our ‘Island Mallorca‘ hotel and we relaxed with great food and a glass of wine. The hotel room had a fantastic wetroom shower and Handisport had rented a hoist from Mobility care. I took my own sling, as I usually do.
After a great sleep we ate a delicious breakfast (the food was constantly delicious!) and we met Hugo by the adapted van. Day 1 of the itinerary had began. Off we headed to tour Parma with ‘Routes for Palma‘. We rolled around the streets, learned of the history, and saw many interesting places. My favourite was the cathedral that was originally surrounded by the sea. It now stands a little back from the water, but looks out to the horizon beautifully.
After 2pm we headed for a typically later Spanish lunch. It was hosted at the amazing restaurant Es Museu. Starter, mains, drinks, desert and coffee. I was so full and content on that warm Mallorcan terrace. Delicious.
