Guckt mal was wir am Strand gefunden haben 🥰 🐚 sammelt ihr auch immer am Strand welche ???

und ja es gibt immer andere Meinungen man sollte seine Kinder im Instagram nicht posten , ich finde jedes Elternteil sollte es für sich und seine Kinder selber entscheiden, Daliah zum Beispiel findet es toll und mag es selber gerne Fotos zu machen und sich präsentieren und klar achte ich immer darauf wie sie in Szene setzt und wann ich sie poste und welche Fotos es sind am Ende aber dennoch in Zeitschriften, TV und woanders sieht man auch Kinder und das ist für mich das selbe.... natürlich verstehe ich NICHT wenn es andere Fotos gibt die im Internet auftauchen von Kindern und da bin ich natürlich auch total dagegen aber wenn ich mit Daliah irgendwo auf einer Mauer sitze und wir uns freuen dass wir Muscheln gefunden haben , finde ich das völlig in Ordnung ... sorry das musste mal raus

The first place I visited on Mallorca was Alcudia, nine years ago. I spent a week in Alcudia and enjoyed sunny days on the gorgeous beach and I remember strolling around in Alcudia’s old town falling in love with the picturesque streets. Back then, at the age of 18, I could not even imagine that I would call this island my home since three years by now. I still really enjoy coming back to this part of the island 🥰
I am so curious to hear about you, which place on Mallorca was the very first one you visited? ⛱⛰💕

Good to know

 

  1. Clothing Casual summer wear can be worn during the day any time of the year; but be sure to bring a jacket or sweater for cooler evenings from December to March.
  2. Water Shoes Bring them if you go to swim or snorkel. Some of the water can be rocky after you walk from the beach.
  3. Sundries For convenience and cost concerns, bring your own everyday health and beauty products with you.
  4. Port Regulation Be aware that often in port it's forbidden to take off the ship fruits, vegetables and unsealed food items for local agricolture concern.
  5. Currency The official currency is the Mexican Peso, but the U.S. dollar is widely accepted throughout the island.
  6. Credit Card concern Pay attention using credit cards in Cozumel. Here several episodes of cloning happened. Use cash as much as possible.
  7. Time Zone EST (Eastern Standard Time) UTC/GMT -5 hours. No DST changes during the year. Make sure to keep the ship's time on your clock to come back board on time. Be aware of automatic changes of your smartphones.

Terminal

The largest port in the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca, is located in the city center, right across the streets of the old town. Port Plama is connected from side to side by a flattened and comprises four areas: Ribera, commercial docks, recreational docks and Dique del Oeste. The end of the cruise port of Palma de Mallorca are Estacion Maritima 1,2,3,4 and 5. The first four are the cruise terminal for cruise ships moored at docks and Paraires Poniente and are connected by a network of covered walkways. They have features like snack bar, coffee shop, office, toilet, post office, police station, and telephone kiosks. They are located southwest of the center of Plama. The cruise ships that dock at the piers of the west sea wall are served by the passenger terminal Estacion Martima 5.

Remind

 

 

Transport

In Mallorca there is a dense network of roads. The main ones are the three highways connecting Palma de Mallorca with Magaluf, Inca and s’Arenal. The island is large, and if you want to visit the place by car you can rent it on the spot. The bus service connects Palma with all the other resorts on the island with good connections.
