It seems like all I do lately is waking up at ridiculous times, but it’s always worth it. Last Wednesday, I had to get up at 3:15AM to go to the harbour and take the ferry to Menorca which, for this of you who don’t know, is a little island near Mallorca in the Balearic Islands (Spain). The journey was only about 2 hours and it was one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen as we got to watch the sun rise from behind Menorca.
We took a bus to Ferreries, where we spent the morning. There we joined the town festivities which revolve around horses. Riders, dressed in 19th-century costume, exhibit the horse’s abilities accompanied by traditional music. Unlike 90% of the population, I am not an animal lover at all so I wasn’t too excited about that. However, I did have a great time and it wasn’t as boring as I was expecting.
At around noon, we took a bus to Ciutadella where we spent the rest of the day. After eating one of my favourite dishes ever, Caldereta de Marisco which could be described as a seafood stew, we walked around the city and explored its streets. We also visited the pier, which we accidentally found. On our way back to the ferry, we stumbled upon a little beach which I think looked very cool because it almost looked like a river rather than the sea. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to swim as we didn’t want to miss the ferry. We didn’t visit any of the stunning beaches in Menorca because they are very similar to the ones we have in Mallorca but if you ever decide to go and you like crystal clear turquoise water (who doesn’t), you should definitely go to one!
