At the beginning of April, some friends and I from the Tufts-Skidmore program used our travel stipend within Spain to go to Mallorca.  We had a large group, so we ultimately were unable to stay in Palma.  This actually wound up being a wonderful thing because we found the precious town called Port D’Andratx, which was a 35-minute drive from the airport.  We stayed in a lovely Airbnb that was a close walk to two different beaches.  On our first day, we had fantastic weather, so upon arriving to Port D’Andratx, we immediately headed out to the beach at the end of the port.  The water was a little chilly, but the salt content made for some excellent floating.  Instead of eating at a restaurant, we chose to cook dinner.  For dinner, we made 2 cheese grilled cheeses and tomato soup.  It was nice to have a chance to cook our own food!  On the next day, the weather was a bit temperamental, so we took some time at the Airbnb to catch up on some work.  Later, half of the group chose to do a small hike and the rest of us walked out to the lighthouse and later had a picnic on the beach.  Our Airbnb host gave us a few restaurant recommendations, so for dinner on Saturday, we ordered pizza to go and ate it together overlooking the sunset on the harbor.  It was a nice change of pace from a typical weekend trip.  Instead of trying to see everything the city had to offer, we enjoyed a lazy weekend lounging and reading.  The town was such a lovely place to stay, and I am already excited to return.
