Mallorcan Roads

I’ve been writing about the mountain roads of the Spanish island of Majorca. I do love it when a Constant Content customer requests an article about a place I know and love, especially when I have some time to do a good job.

However, it is many years since I’ve been to Majorca. As a family, we went several times when friends had an apartment there and let us have it quite cheaply. It’s not so easy to afford since they had to sell the apartment, but we spent enough time there to get quite familiar with much of it.

The mountain roads are quite exciting, as you can see from the picture. It is by stAn at Wikimedia. I have plenty of photos that I took all those years ago with my film camera, but since we moved I haven’t been able to locate them in order to do any scanning. Perhaps I will find them sometime soon.

Anyway, this picture is of the most hair-raising road of all. It winds down from the heights to a beach called Sa Colobra. At one point you turn through 360% to go over or under the way you’ve just come. I haven’t quite worked out the point of that yet. I guess it will take another visit – good excuse to make one, don’t you think?

I'll have to go to Mallorca one of these days, I'm so close there. Did you know that Sa Colobra means The Snake? I don't know if they got inspired by that road though :)

I think going back to see that road is a perfect excuse! :-) Hope you get to go back soon.

Thank you, B&BJ

and thanks fullet - I didn't know that meaning, but it certainly makes sense.
