Palma de Mallorca

Once upon a time in Mallorca 

Mallorca continues to provide me with ample reason to absolutely love it. My love for this amazing place just never ceases to continually grow. As any good thing does – it just gets better and better with time. Winter in particular is my favorite time of year here. I love the temperature, its perfect for my Arctic blood. Not like in the summer, when I am sweating my ass off. Sounds attractive doesn’t it?! Just as classy as ever.

With holiday season approaching us, Palma pulls out all the stops to make it a magical experience – and its darn freaken amazing.

The whole city is decorated with lights, and not just a few lights. The effort put into it every year is incredible.Although, in Mallorca they always know how to throw a kick ass party, bringing thousands of people together all the time. The epitome of true urban living, on one the most beautiful islands on this planet. Oh I could go on about my love story with Mallorca forever…. And I most likely will.

  
November 27th, 2015, marked the day the lights get a good old power surge, and transform the city to your very own fairy tale. It’s undeniably romantic.

Just like the Northern lights back home in Northern Canada, the magnificence of this never gets old. They began hanging the lights a few weeks ago, and every day when I was seeing them, I was waiting in eager anticipation for them to be turned out. I wasn’t the only one. Literally they whole downtown and old town area of the city is covered.

 It rocks my world, and it slows time right down. Every night when you are walking through it, you can’t help but stay in the moment and take it all in. It’s a beautiful thing when time almost stops for a bit, as life just seems to fly by, and I like to be present in every given moment. Just loving life. As I do.

Next weekend all the Christmas markets are beginning, and they are full of Mallorca’s finest local products. From hand crafted local artisan products, to local cheese’s, meat, olives, and goodies. Let’s not forget the Mulled wine! It’s the best winter beverage ever! Warm, spicy, and made with my fave juice, which just so happens to be vino. As we all know. Mmmmm, I can taste it now.  In the next couple weeks there are also going to be stages set up around the city with live music. Something for everyone to enjoy, bringing the community together. It’s gonna be epic.

Until then, I am still going to live in this moment, and enjoy the heck outta today. Why have it any other way? And yes, in case your wondering, I do believe in fairy tales.
