From this famous bench you're afforded views over the skyline of London. It's appeared in countless movies. Often the lover's meet here or the spies or the villains or whichever protagonists are performing that day.
We were married in Arta. The following day we travelled to Colonia Sant Pere. It was a gloriously sunny November day. We sat and enjoyed this view across the Bay of Alcudia to the Sierra Tramuntana mountains in the distance and marvelled at the idea of being together here in Mallorca. The mountains are hidden in the haze, but the memory is crystal clear.
There's miles and miles of pedestrian walkway along here in the Portitxol district of Palma Mallorca, with expansive sea views all the way. We found the area altogether charming, imagined winning the lottery and buying one of these original fisherman's houses. That was then. These days the barrio is almost chic. Lots of people have had the same idea, but we would still buy here if we could.
The Grand Hotel is Lluis Domenech i Montaner's Modernista masterpiece in Palma Mallorca. Since its construction in 1903 the building has had a chequered history. These days it houses the Fundacio la Caixa cultural centre. Some of the very best touring art exhibitions are displayed here.
