Good leg room.. decent coffee and beer.. get to eat at a dining table and socialise with intelligent women.. beautiful views..
But if you like crap bacon roll with a sliver of bacon for 5 quid.. **** coffee and raffle tickets the Paddy Wagons the way to go..

Lemme see....
Just after a strike......
My route is not straight forward....... B.A. will do me the route for...... 840 smackers! Funny how it went up from pre strike till today..... Bar Stewards.

I can sleep for 2 hours.. luxury.... I even booked front row seat...
Socialise? Sleep. Beautiful views? sleep.

I did book Air Europa for Mallorca to Zaragoza and they gave me free upgrade coz I fly them a lot....... so that flight will be a good bottle of Rioja and nibbles.

Next year... I will sail to Barcelona and catch the train from my mooring either in the Islands or on the East coast....

Ill dream about that......

re: The Mallorca Squad

Still standing by somewhere in the Bay of Palma... We're trying to scare up some interest on the Beneteau, then off to Cabrera on the 3rd.

re: The Mallorca Squad

Waiting in Soller.... which is a great place to be waiting. I may retire here, high mountains for cycling, scuba dive scheduled for tomorrow, dozens of great restaurants, anchored just off the marina, 4 euro 30 minute bus ride into Palma. You can't beat this place.

Pleasant enough but not my favourite place. Expensive for what it is in my observation.
I prefer the East coast, Portocolom for example.

Portocolom is nice, but we have depth issues there since we draw 2.5 meters, so we usually stay in the next cove south along the coast which is very nice.... and kind of secret.

Thing I hate about Soller is the 'Roll' at anchor.. usually sets in just after bedtime..

Weavis,

In the picture with the sardines in the middle, what are the tapas (?)/nachos (?) on the left? I'm sure they're not cauliflower cheese!

You all have fun, now, guys!
