Afternoon Tea at The Egerton House Hotel

June 14, 2016 10
I love a good afternoon tea.

Cucumber sandwiches, cakes, freshly baked scones with clotted cream... that's just my cup of (afternoon) tea.

Egerton Hotel very kindly invited me down to try their take on it.

Polo in the Park

Have you ever been to a Polo match?

Me neither. So when I received an invitation to attend Chestertons Polo in the Park, I got very excited.

Despite the sun being stubborn and hiding behind the clouds, it was a warm and beautiful day without a drop of rain. Cheers to that.

Porto Cristo and Deep Blue Seas

Before exploring Palma and admiring the Mallorcan countryside, I first reached east for a much needed me-time.

Three days with book in one hand, cocktail in the other and a bit of discovering in between.

Unwinding at Castell Son Claret

May 08, 2016 18
After two busy days exploring Palma, we headed to Es Capdella, Calvia to switch off and completely relax.

Surrounded by 132-acres of beautiful nature and La Sierra de Tramontana mountains, declared a World Heritage Site, Castell Son Claret was the perfect choice of peace and luxury.

Exploring Palma de Mallorca

May 06, 2016 4
Despite having less than 48 hours in Palma, we wanted to see as many unique shops, art galleries, cultural sites as possible, and try all traditional food.

Mainly grapes. Served in a wine glass.

After we dropped our bags off at the hotel, we headed out to explore.

Naturally, one of the main attractions is the Cathedral de Mallorca (La Seu) standing proud by the seafront. It was built between the 13th and 17th centuries, but the famous architect Antoni Gaudí redesigned parts of the interior in the early 20th century. Magnificent.
