The 200th post of Nona Hora project.
It felt so good to be back home to Mother Europe, especially, to be in a “happy place”, surrounded by the bright sun, breezy sea air, and warm salty water… [joyful smile]
My this year’s EuroTrip has taken me to two capitals of Spanish provinces- Balearic Islands and Catalonia.
The Balearic Islands are an archipelago in the western Mediterranean Sea. Its four main islands are Majorca (spelled Mallorca in native language, pronounced ‘Mah-york-a’), Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The archipelago forms an autonomous community and a province of Spain with Palma de Majorca as the capital city, population of around 408,000 people. Majorca is the largest of Balearic Islands (the name Majorca derives from Latin insula maior, “larger island”) and is an extremely popular holiday destination for tourists from Europe.
Barcelona is the capital city of the autonomous community of Catalonia in Spain and the country’s 2nd largest city. With a population of around 4.5 million people within its urban area, the city is the sixth-most populous urban area and the fourth-most visited city in Europe (after London, Paris, and Rome). It annually attracts 7.4 million visitors.
Here is a brief summary of my travel to Palma de Majorca and Barcelona which should give you an idea of what to expect in the next posts. Please subscribe and follow me. I hope you will enjoy this photo series.
