Menorca Otra Vez

 A couple of days ago we came home from our holidays. It's been three years since we went to Menorca (Balearic Islands, belonging to Spain), long enough to feel The Itch. The itch that says 'Time to see the island again'.  And so we went. Since I was five I went there every year until I was about twenty and wanted to see other corners of the world, but now that I have children myself, I want them to see the island, too. Most beautiful place in the world, even after seeing so much other great places. 

Here's an impression, see it for yourself. 

My absolute favorite beach in the island is Platja d'Algaiarens, La Vall




A friend of mine could arrange a house for a good price in Cala'n Blanes. Not the most beautiful place on the island, but it has its own highlights as you can see below.

Garlic Flowers

More beautiful flowers

Natural Bridge


I love the flowers (and the fences) in July!

 Pink Oleanders at my friend's house

Magenta Bougainville at our own house

Another beautiful gate


Platja Son Saura


Just like paradise: Cala Galdana


In Lithica, a former quarry where stones were delved to build houses with, now are botanical gardens and a labyrinth
