    • Driving from Barcalona Airport to Denia

      Denia Dec 20, 2016 at 11:10 PM

      I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
      We will have the car for a further three weeks.
      What are the points of interest along the way?
      What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
      We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.
      Appreciate some local knowledge

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?

      We were last in Mallorca 30 years ago and naturally the island has grown and changed quite a bit. In order to make the most of our week there, where should we stay? It seems most of the sites we plan to visit are in the south part of the island but we will also have a rental car. Please advise economical hotels/apartments which are near a beach, and within easy access to a golf course.

      We'd like to hear suggestions for good restaurants in Palma or close by. We'll be there in late September/early October and will have a car, so if necessary, we can drive to a restaurant if its away from the center of town. There used to be a place with a name something like "1931". Is it still there?

Also looking for some lively places to go in the evnenings(perhaps not the most hardcore clubs), and to meet evenly aged teens.

      Time to do the Soller train and the tram?

      by pn1 Online Now May 10, 2015 at 8:22 PM

      In June 2015, I am on a cruise that's timed to be in Palma from 0900 to 1600. I am wondering if that would be sufficient time to ride the Soller train and tram? I would be thinking of one direction only.

      My thoughts would be to get a taxi from the cruise terminal to the end of the tram line at Soller? Then take the tram and transfer to the train back to Palma. Or perhaps just ride the tram and take a (faster?) bus back?

      Is that feasible in the time available? And with the summer tourist crowds? Any advice would be appreciated.
