Hello everyone, welcome to my channel. I’m the one behind Trip Trap Travel. First of all, let me say you that this channel isn’t going to have a video every week or something like that. This YouTube channel is not the main one, my main channel is Instagram I’m gonna leave you the link down here Let’s start with the trip to Mallorca The ones who are already followers of my Instagram channel must have noticed that I usually post photos of other countries I use to post photos of Africa, New Zealand, America a lot of photos of Europe. Then you’ll think: Mallorca? It is right here next door Well this year for certain circumstances I went to Mallorca with friends and my partner, and well, my intention by recording this video is to explain a little bit the trip, cause I haven’t been able to post many videos in Instragram, I couldn’t took many photos, so I’ll explain here the trip to Malorca, couse you’ll see it was a little moved. Our flight departed at 8:30am but our two friends for… little trouble, they had to take a flight that departed an hour earlier. So we had to leave home at 6am to reach the airport at 6:30am and be there an hour and a half before the departure. Then the guy who took us to the airport, one of our companions, he is famous for being late. Not a little late but SO LATE You usually need to tell him that you have arranged the meeting an hour or an hour and a half earlier so that he comes at the true arranged time. We were a little worried with that and well… we had to argue a little bit with him cause he was proposing to met even later that the time we had in mind. Finally we reached the airport in time. It was a bad night for me, we didn’t slept quite much because we got up at 5am…
We arrived to the airport, que left our friends in their terminal and we went to go through the security line. you know that liquids must go apart. So I always put my liquids in a dressing case The girl in the security line took everything off my dressing case without any care, taking everything apart and that get me a little nervous because well… I had been building a wonderful Tetris and it was 5am, I hadn’t slept too much While I was waiting my bag to come out of the machine, I told my boyfriend about the woman who took all my stuff apart And here comes the bomb The man who was watching the maching, a Prosegur’ man because he was not a policeman, he was just a Prosegur’ man The man says me: What happens? Are you in your period? WHAAAT?!?!?! Amazing. My face was something like this: My boyfriend, obviously, saw the imminent danger and he said to the man: oh oh oh you better shut up becaus I it was a miracle that I didn’t jump over the table. We passed the security line and we waited for a while because our flight departed later. We waited, we took the flight: all right. So we arrived in Mallorca and we went to get the car we had already reserved. When we arrived to the rental place and after waiting a while, the Ok rent a car girl told us that we had to pay the bail. And we said ok, we already knew that But she says to us that it can only be paid with CREDIT card and the card must be at the driver’s name So what happen with that? Among the group of four people, I was the only one there who was able to drive. There was another guy with car licence but it was only a month old and the rental company didn’t allowed him to drive. I don’t have credit card and the bail’s amount was of 700€. They didn’t let us pay in any other way. So what did we have to do? We had already reserved an insurance for the car. Well we had to par another insurance with OK rent a car With the young driver taxes, the gasoline and everything, the bill rise up to 200€ plus than we expected. That meant 50€ plus per person. We are young, so our budget is reduced, so that was a stab on the back. They gave us the car and oh! Surprise! Fantastic! We asked for a small car, like a Peugeot 107. And they gave us, this is good: an amazing Audi. Awesome! Our faces changed right there, the day improved so far. We went to the apartment that was on the other side of the island. We ate and then we entered the apartment, which was spectacular. Absolutely spectacular. It was soo cool, I had been looking a lot for it and it was super cheap. We rented it through Airbnb, which works so well. At least for me, it have worked fantastically so far. It had three rooms, air conditioner, dishwasher, the kitchen was fully equipped. Here you can see the kitchen: awesome The living room was so cool too.
The next day we went to look for a creek, typical in Mallorca. And we decided to go to “Es Caló”, which is more or less close from where we were. We went there You have to walk a little bit and the views are so beautiful, the water is absolutely turquoise: pretty The creek was made of rocks and it was small so the wasn’t many people, for people who likes that they will enjoy the quiet. The beach is great but there’s something that may annoy somebody , it bothered me personally. There were some botes around. Whats wrong with that? All the foam from the boats reached the water were we were swimming and that’s a little nasty Besides there was plenty of seaweed. With plenty I mean that my three friends were constantly throwing seaweed balls to each other.
On the night we went to the Arenal. Yes, we crossed the entire islan AGAIN The Arenal is good if you want to go partying cheap and if you want to chill in the beach (relatively) because if you’re young that’s perfect. But you’re just not SO young, as me, you’re going to find the Arenal absolutely full of kids, and when I say kids I mean there were underaged drinking there. Yes, UNDERAGED. The apartment was great
Problem We put on the dishwasher with the soap tablets that were in the apartment We put it on, we oppened it and everything was dirty. It was like: great
Then we opened the soap box and the tablet was still there. The whole tablet. So we had that fabulous idea – now you’ll think: noo, noo, tell me it’s not that – well yes, it’s exactly what you’re thinking We took Fairy and we putted it in the dishwasher. Bravo, bravo, what a wonderful idea you had! Well yes, wonderful idea. Obviously that was the foam party Do not EVER put Fairy into the dishwasher. The machine spend the next days there with a fabulous light indicating that something was wrong, we were unable to turn it off. We read the instructions and nothing. It was quite maddening because we thought “oh my got we have broken it” We interrupted the electric current and we left it turned off. Let it be god’s will. The last night we said: well let’s turn on the dishwasher and see what happens Miracle. The dishwasher worked. It was a total relieve. I guess it only needed to suck down the foam.
The third day we were quite tired as we had arrived to the apartment at 7am from the Arenal, so we rested and sleep until midday and then in the afternoon we went to a beach near there, in the town.
At night we wanted to do something but we didn’t wanted to go to the other side of the island to party. So we went to Alcúdia, which was right next to the village. and it was fantastic. We went there after dinner and we arrived almost at midnight. But the thing is. Here is Mallorca island, here’s Palma, and here’s the zone where we were Here is Alcúdia, and here’s the village, super close And all this zone was full of europeans. Europeans means: not Spanish people. That means French, Germans (a lot of them), English. What does that mean? They have very different schedules than us. Than means that we arrived there at midnight and everything, absolutely EVERYTHING was closed. Closed, every bar, pub, everything in the seafront was closed or about to close: fiasco.
So well… we went back to the apartment.
4th day: we went to a beach that was arround that zone, a little turther. It was called “Cala mesquida” that beach was fatastic, I loved it. It was a sand beach. Very familiar with plenty of kids The water was super clean and nice. The truth is we had a great time there At midday was full of people, in fact we were almost in the water line and a wonderful german family settled right in front of us, at 50cm with all their stuff, their umbrella, their tent to shelter themselves from the sun because if they don’t do it they end up like prawns. They putted all their stuff right in front of us, just like a screen.You’ll think: veeery well, thank you!
We moved ourselves and said nothing, cause we were on holidays. We moved aside and kept enjoying the beach day.
At night the guys who came with us asked for party again. They wanted to go to the Arenal because they have had a really nice time last day. So we went to the arenal, but that day it wasn’t so wonderful. Besides I was very tired and I had to drive back during an hour and I didn’t wanted to come back at 6am just like the other day. So we told our friends to go and have fun and I stayed with my parter chilling around there until… I was just starting to fall asleep. So we had to tell them: ok guys, we’re so sorry but we’re leaving. Because we have plenty of things to do tomorrow, we have to gather up the apartment because we are already leaving. So we left at 2:30am Next day, the last one, we gathered up the apartment, we left everything perfect The owner wrote us a message, she said she was so happy with us. Our flight was departing at night and we had to leave the apartment at 11h. So we took the car at 11:15 and we crossed the island. We arrive at Palma at 12h. It was very hot that day we walked around Palma, the old town. In Palma, every monument you want to visit: the cathedral, the turkish baths, everything you had to pay for it. The 50€ of the car hurt us so we could not pay for any visit we saw everything from the outside, we take a wonderful walk then I found a gild who made Hena tattoos, which I loved So I get this wonderful tattoo, it’s so cool, really, I love it. After the Hena tattoo we took lunch and after that we were like: so… what do we do now?
Because Palma is Palma, and as much beautiful as it is, it’s small and you finish your visit fast if you can not enter the historical buildings. So we decided to go to the airport and take a nap there, because we were exhausted. We arrived to the airport and we had like 4 or 5 hours left of waiting It was sooo soon. Our two friends crossed the security line and when my boyfriend and I tried it we couldn’t We were told that it was permitted to cross the line before three hours before the boarding opens. So it was like: great Our friends passed and their flight’s departure was only 30′ earlier than ours So the 4 of us waited in the wall speaking one to each other and playing cards until we could cross de security line And what happened? No one slept :’)
So we spend 4/5 eternal hours in the airport really bored until we could board.
