Visit Mallorca, Balearic Island Spain

To escape from the daily routine and chilly weather, we decided to visit Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In no time we came up with the itinerary. The mere thought of visiting such a beautiful place was delightful.

Hola!!

We started our day with the visit to one of the most ornamental village ‘Valldemossa’ situated in the hills of Tramuntana range. On our way we met some localites, despite the language barrier we established an unsaid connection. They were very kind and welcoming.
Blonde stone streets,  beautifully decorated houses, traditional cafes, galleries, gift shops, rich vegetation and Royal Carthusian monastery makes Valldemossa prettiest village of Mallorca.

Before heading to Port de Soller, we were caught by striking Sa Foradada. The view was so spectacular that we couldn’t take our eyes off. Blue water, blue sky and a steady rock with a hole.

But this was not enough for Archduke Ludwig Salvador, so he bought the entire estate and built rotunda ‘Son Marroig’ offering breathtaking view of Foradada and coastline

Journey to Port de soller was relaxing; before heading to the port, we stopped by in a spanish restaurant and had delicious fish and spinach croquettes and seafood Paella. Vintage tram trip to port brought back childhood memories. Calm and shallow beach and peaceful harbor was the perfect way to end the day.

Trip to Mallorca is incomplete without visiting cala (cove) and among so many beautiful calas to decide which one to visit is always a challenge. Finally we settled to Cala Anguila. For beach lovers this is heaven. Crystal clear turquoise water, bright sunny day, pleasant breeze; what more we could have asked for.

After a relaxing day at cala, it was time to explore Palma city, capital of Mallorca which is at its best at night. Historical buildings, cafes, shopping complexes, theatres, local markets, narrow pathways were so much fun. Magnificent Palma gothic cathedral (La Seu) at the sea front is truly the spotlight of the city.

With this, a wonderful trip came to an end; leaving behind memories to cherish forever 🙂

Adiós Palma de Mallorca!!

Life is Right or Left…

Go towards your Left.. Oh wait, I meant Right.. whatever!!

Every single time when someone approach me for direction, I become super excited as if they are going to hand over a trophy if I tell right direction about going left. But to my no surprise, I end up goofing up Left with Right and vice versa. Thankfully my hands point to the right direction (thereby securing at-least the consolation prize :P)
After every fail attempt I laugh at myself and cherish similar incidents of past and console myself by saying “That’s OK even my dad used to do the same”.

It never occurred to me until today that this is unusual, which need a fix rather than ignoring or putting it on my father.
Thanks to my mentor for bringing this up. For the first time, I gave a thought about it and did some digging online keeping my fingers crossed to see if it is a psychological, neurological or IQ issue to say the least. Apparently, the left-right confusion or the phenomenon, is quite common and not a problem to be concerned about. There are various test available online to confirm where we stand with respect to this confusion. Though there is no remedy but by keeping calm, avoiding stress and most importantly by not thinking about the prize while assisting others with the direction will surely help in getting right direction about left.

 

Life is a maze

One fine day, while I was studying my father came and surprised me with a gift. It was a tiny book with an interesting subject line “Who moved my cheese” by Dr Spencer Johnson.

Considering it to be a storybook, I decided to give a shot; but to my surprise, it taught me some important lessons of the lifetime. This amusing and enlightening book was more powerful than I could even think of. Many circumstances since then have proved me over and again that:

Life is no straight and easy corridor along
Which we travel free and unhampered,
But a maze of passages,
Through which we must seek our way,
Lost and confused, now and again
Checked in a blind alley.

But always, if we have faith,
A door will open for us,
Not perhaps one that we ourselves
Would ever have thought of,
But one that will ultimately
Prove good for us
                                                                              — A. J. Cronin

Visit London, England

Christmas in London!!

Come on come on it’s Christmas time
London is calling, to show its chime!
Decorated streets front and rear
Christmas cheer is every where!
Foggy days and chilly nights
Sounds amazing Right?
Ice skating is so much fun
Christmas market – a sweet distraction!
Miraculous escape and fab atmosphere
Here wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Life is about hope

Once while travelling in an endless road in the midst of night, blustery wind was sending flurries of rain against the window. Silence was such that I could hear my own beats. My eyes wide open looking for one ray of light, one ray of hope.
No wonder, for sailors in deep dark ocean lighthouse is their only ray of hope providing assurance of life and safe entries to harbors.
