Ibiza & Formentera

Image
Traveling for 2 weeks. With Jodie my 12 year old daughter.

First week on the beautiful island of Formentra. We stayed in the Hostel La Savina. Not your typical package holiday. We included adventure. These 2 islands are a great place to explore. Formentera is quit flat and easy to hire a bicycle or walk and explore the island and it’s fantastic beaches.
If you are looking for nightlife in Formentra, then visit Es Pujols. Many bars and you will find Spanish tourists having fun.

Cristal clear water. With the view of Ibiza in the background. Only ½ hour from Ibiza Town by ferry.


Platja de ses llletes. Great beaches with warm cristal clear waters.

Second week Es Canar. (Karaoke city) But we spent the days visiting all the beautiful bays and most evenings in Santa Eularia. More Spanish.

Solo adventure Vinales Cuba

Image
Viñales one of my favorite places to stay. With the feel of a great community and always made to feel welcome. Good place to relax and to make base for a visit to Cayo Jutias and María la Gorda. There are plenty of casa particulars to choose from no need to book. And only 2 hours from Havana. 
The Viñales Valley a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in Pinar del Río province where mogotes, hills with rounded tops and steep slopes, contrast harmoniously with the flat surface of the valley. Can be found just a short walk from Viñales main street
