Hello! Here we are with day two of the Balearic Island of Mallorca. Since we had such a fun time riding bikes on our first day, we decided to keep them one more day. On day two, we rode our bikes into the city of Palma to explore the town a bit. The highlight of the town is definitely the grand cathedral that overlooks the sea.

We had to take a quick break in order to try an ensaïmada, a popular Majorcan pastry made with pork lard! Ultimately, it was light and airy and covered in powdered sugar so of course we ate every last bite!

After exploring the cathedral, we took a bus from Palma to Port de Sóller, a beautiful village on the northeast side of the island. I have never been to Italy, but this is always what I imagined a little Italian fishing village to look like! What do you think?IMG_6663

I really fell hard for this port and had to give it my vote for “favorite part of Mallorca!”

The bus that we caught back to Palma took a different route than our original bus did, which allowed us to see a different part of the island… the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. Buried in this mountain range were various small villages surrounded by orange, lemon, and olive groves overlooking the Mediterranean. I only wish we had more time to stop and explore some of these quaint villages. Hopefully these pictures taken from the bus will give you a small idea of the landscape!
