Mallorca, largest of the Balearic Islands, is part of Spain and sits in a beautiful location in the western Mediterranean. It’s very popular with Germans (and Brits) as a holiday destination and I compare it to how people on the west coast of the US look at Hawaii, although it’s a much shorter travel time. It’s the only place I’ve been where I ordered lunch in my fractured Spanish and the waitress replied to me in German.
During our visit, we took a 1910 vintage wooden railcar train from Palma, north to the hill town of Soller. Even though it was pretty touristy, it was fun to ride as we passed through the Mallorca countryside.
