Hi everyone! I’m just back from another amazing trip to Mallorca. I really cannot explain how much I love this small island. Although we didn’t do much exploration of the island this year, we did do a family SUP adventure on the water, and an early morning cruise to see dolphins. I’d like to say that it was a great experience out in the water, but well, the whole ship was sick from the rough seas, and even the sight of dolphins jumping through the air didn’t do much to help. Oh well, some excursions just don’t turn out like you hope, but you just have to roll with it!
