Escaping the bad weather in central Europe 逃离中欧的坏天气
18.03.2009 18 °C
This year we were seeing one of the longest winters ever in Austria, and in the middle of March it was still cool with lots of rain. So we searched for a good offer to go to a sunny place and found a 10 days stay + flight to Mallorca for 2 persons + 1 baby for as cheap as 560,- Euro.
We quickly took the opportunity and were hoping for some good weather. At the time of our arrival it was nice and sunny in Mallorca, but it was uncertain if the good weather would last for the whole stay.
Our baby on the plane.
It's already her second time flying on a plane and the 3rd time her going abroad, at an age of only 10 months!
Checking in at the hotels reception, the Esmeralda Park.
One of the hotel's swimming pools.
Right behind one can see Cala Esmeralda, the bay which gave the hotel its name.
Arriving in the hotel apartment room.
It was quite specious.
It was already late in the afternoon, just time enough for exploring the hotel and the area nearby.
It looks much more beautiful in bright daylight, but unfortunately we were too busy the following days, so we only have these pictures which were taken with very little sun light.
We walked out towards the ocean, looking back at Esmeralda Bay from the other side.
There were many more other bays nearby.
Though it was nice and warm during the day, it quickly got cool after the sun went down. Thus wearing the jackets.
Then we went to the town center to search for a restaurant to have dinner.
Finally we found a Spanish restaurant, where we had seafood and some more delicious Majorcan food.
Back at the hotel we used our netbook ("Sammy") for the first time.
My honey checked the weather forecast.
The weather forecast is looking good!
