Living Dreams in Santa Maria

There is nothing like a Mallorcan adventure. More so,  just a nice afternoon excursion out of Palma. It's always good to get out of the city when you can, there is just way too many things to experience on this wondrous island. The winter weather has been so incredibly awesome, it just asking to be basked [...]

Being fabulous in my awesome Country. Canada and me.

Soooo, what was supposed to be a brief week pit stop in Canada from my travels to attend a blogging conference outside Toronto, ended up turning into a month of tripsing around and working my arse off.  My life always seems to have me on the go. One way or another I always find myself [...]

C’an Joan de S’Aigo, Palma’s historical ice cream parlor.

History, Coffee, Ice Cream, and your typical Spanish pastries. Sounds pretty darn delightful doesn't it? Well, it was - and you probably should have been there. Being Saturday afternoon after a busy week of being awesome. My energy was lagging a tad(even though it comes naturally, it still can take it out of a person) [...]

Spontaneously, I woke up back in Spain.

As per usual Petrena style, I made the spontaneous decision to return to Spain for a bit. My other home. Palma de Mallorca, Spain. It seems I just can't stay away for that long, it drags me back. Well, in all honesty it doesn't take much dragging. Hello Palma!!    Holy man, first of all, [...]

Snow in Mallorca?? Oh heck yes! And I was all over it;)

Once in a blue moon in Mallorca you get those rare moments where the mountains get a nice little blanket of snow.  It's a big excitement here, even causing roads to be shut this past weekend as there was far too many people trying to get to it.  For some this is their first real [...]

Catch ups, wine, and Nintendo.  Just your typical ladies night;)

  It's always great when your close friends come back from being away,  it just gives me another good reason to go out and enjoy all that incredible Palma has to offer(as if I need a reason).  So as you know Lleana's return only meant one thing, time for a catch up! Ok well two things, there [...]

1 sure way to experience a party in your mouth;)

1 sure way to experience a party in your mouth;)

'Carajillo'.  I love them.  It's a typical drink here in Spain, and it's literally just a shot of espresso with a rum called Amazonas.  Ok, well it is not always with Amazonas, but any other Rum and it is just not the same, and since I am telling the story, it is only made with [...]
