The Mallorca Squad

Hola (whatever that means )
I will be in Mallorca for two days July 1st and 2nd. 2014 ( I also will be there later in July but not sure of the dates).

As some of us want to meet up for a chat and a glass or two of the local wine, I suggest we choose which day suits us all.

I will be free from 12noon-8pm both days and as Im buying the first round Id like to recommend my restaurant for the venue.

(If this venue does not suit, Im open to alternatives.)

Its just off the placa de Espanya and either a 25 minute walk from Palma marina or a 5 min bus ride.

Its called

Meson el Rocio
Fausto Morell, 5
Palma 07007




The park on the left is right behind the rail station and the Placa de espanya is in front of the rail station.

re: The Mallorca Squad

I know where Plaza Espana is so we can find you. It sounds like a good central location. Either day works for us (my OH & I) assuming we're not way off in Alcudia or something. We're in Palma now but will likely launch off for Cabrera & the East Coast after Superyachts this weekend.

Who else is around? Let me know.

re: The Mallorca Squad

Yo people..

The reason I chose the Placa d'Espanya is
1/... both the bus and rail network are based there.
2/. The Meson el Rocio is authentic Spanish Tapas/food.
3/. If for any reason we want to change venue, there are about 50 different retaurants within 5 minutes walk and still close to the central transport hub.

For thos of you who berth in Palma a lot, and want to get around the city, you can buy a bus card from a newsagent for 10EUR which will give you 15EUR worth of trips..just hold it up to the machine on a bus and it will beep. as local trips cos 1.50EUR each, it gives you good value at 1EUR each!

Some things I use when traveling abroad either via boat or land.
  • I have a SKYPE world wide free call subscription.
  • I have a UK phone number and a USA phone number.
  • This allows me to carry either number all the time wherever I am in the world and people can call me as long as I have an internet connection at the local rate of the country of the number if they are calling from that country.
  • I can call most countries to a land line for free.
  • It costs me about $200 a year all in for the number and service.
I have pm'd you all with my email, SKPE chat and phone number.


Any others in the locale please feel free to meet up with us. We are just going to say hi and put faces to our inane ramblings and prove to each other that we are normal people......... er... ok.


So far it will be 5 including me......



I have suggested we do a final confirm on Monday 30th June as we all will be in Mallorca.







Looking at my schedule, It is possible that after my Seminar in Zaragoza, I will be returning to the Mallorca clinic for the remainder of the month of July.... so if you guys are around still, we can talk boats and stuff. I have to go look at a Catamaran that is coming in to Soller at some stage in July.

Possibly 7 if a friend can get repairs done in time in Morroco.
Shame boatman61 and Saltymonkey are too far away.

Hendaye-Madrid-Barcelona
