Adios Europa :(

Thursday we spent a day at sea, relaxing on deck and enjoying the ship. Friday we went to Palma de Mallorca, an island a ways off the coast of Spain. We spent the first hour or so walking around the old Spanish village, most famous for it’s incredible cathedral at it’s center, walking distance from our port and the beach. Spanish architecture really might be my very favorite. Palma, named for it’s beautiful palm trees, is like a post card with the palm trees against the exquisite, Spanish architecture against the green mountains. Palma de Mallorca is famous for it’s sea caves, so we took a cab to the other side of the island through some of the island’s beautiful countryside to the caves. After touring the impressive caves, we went back to the old village and spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach there. We finally swam in the Mediterranean Sea! A great way to end our time in Europe!
