When we dock in Majorca it is not exactly downtown. Rather, according to one of the maps we are somewhere ~ 6-8 km away. I believe that just about as much as the claim it is an hour walk to town (less than 45 min). Of course, if I was trying to sell shuttle tickets I would emphasize the time/distance factor as well…
Ah – before I forget – we shared port today with the Harmony. A sister ship to the Oasis and Allure, I know more than a few people on the ship. My original plan of meeting up with several for lunch fell by the wayside due to two factors. The first was docking – so near yet so far and impossible to get to their ship. The second was that the Harmony staff arranged an trip for the 180+ Pinnacles on the ship. Far be it from me to get between passengers and a free trip to Tapas, Sangria and Flamenco Dancers.
But the Harmony – docking an hour after us – it was still dark when she sailed in –
and the details are clearer as the day brightened.
There is the water slide – but I don’t think it is enough to get me back on a 6000+ passenger ship.
Since I have done this stroll a few times I enjoyed myself while walking along the water front. I left the sailboat side for the store side about half way through my wander when I realized that sunblock would have been a good idea. Not that I thought about bringing it to rainy Europe in the fall.
and the fun one can have with sunshine – if you have sunshine
and landmark details along the way
The perfect kind of small bookshop
and of course, the rain stopped on my way back
