In 2016 August me and my beautiful girl went to Majorca, which is one of the biggest Balearic Islands (or maybe even biggest). I have been there many times, but if you are tired of UK weather you will go even to the place where you have been 100 times. We were 9 days in the middle of August, so temperature was more than +35C.
The capital of the island, Palma, is also the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. The Balearic Islands have been an autonomous region of Spain since 1983. The Cabrera Archipelago is administratively grouped with Majorca (in the municipality of Palma). The anthem of Majorca is La Balanguera.
Like the other Balearic Islands of Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera, the island is an extremely popular holiday destination, particularly for tourists from Germany and the United Kingdom. The international airport, Palma de Mallorca Airport, is one of the busiest in Spain; it was used by 23.1 million passengers in 2014.
Anyway, enough of the facts, lets check some pictures I capture. Enjoy!
True Love story of Debbie and Jack.

Moo the pug.
For those who don`t know I have an amazing, sweet, crazy baby boy, dog named Moo (not muu..). The breed is pug, or more specific – pocket (mini) pug. He has a very specific colour light brown or “apricot”. He is the one who gives me smile and I love him VERY much. Generally I am an animal lover especially dogs, wishing that one day I will be lucky in lottery and will win millions of pounds, and then I will be owner of the dog shelter. Enough about my dreams, take a look on pictures of Moo.
The magical scenery of Puzzlewood has made it a popular location for filming and to date we have played host to a number of exciting television dramas including Dr Who, Merlin and Atlantis.
Could it be the maze of pathways winding through the gulleys of mossy rocks, the twisted roots of the yew trees or the bridges, lookouts and other things you can find on your way round?
Puzzlewood is a unique and enchanting place, located in the beautiful and historic Forest of Dean. Explore a mile of meandering pathways, with its fantastic tree and rock formations, through this 14 acre ancient woodland. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood you have visited. JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood, and it’s easy to see why.
As well as the woods we have lots of animals, a willow maze, indoor mazes and a toddler racing track, an outdoor playground, plenty of picnic benches, a cafe and gift shop with lots of local crafts.

Villablanca, Spain 2016 OCT.
Never been a big fan of blogging, but always comes the time when you either need it or either have to. I will try to post some of my stories about where I have been or what I have been doing during my lifetime. One of my passions is to travel, love to do it, love to explore the world. Recently I visited couple of my friends in Spain. Was amazing 9 days of doing n.o.t.h.i.n.g. The place we were is called Villablanca, closest city is Huelva. Small, nice city next to the seaside. To be honest, there is nothing to do just chill and having sunbath. During our visit we went to “capital city of that area” Seville. Very clean and beautiful city. Met an amazing English couple who live in Spain for nearly 2 years now.
Let me tell you some facts about great Andalusia “capital”.
Seville (/s?’v?l/; Spanish: Sevilla [se’ßi?a], locally: [se’ßi(?)?a] ( listen)) is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville, Spain. It is situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir. The inhabitants of the city are known as sevillanos (feminine form: sevillanas) or hispalenses, after the Roman name of the city, Hispalis. Seville has a municipal population of about 703,000 as of 2011, and a metropolitan population of about 1.5 million, making it the fourth-largest city in Spain and the 30th most populous municipality in the European Union. Its Old Town, the third largest in Europe with an area of 4 square kilometres (2 sq mi), contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alcázar palace complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies. The Seville harbour, located about 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only river port in Spain. Seville is also the hottest major metropolitan area in the geographical Western Europe, with summer average high temperatures of above 35 °C.
Seville was founded as the Roman city of Hispalis. It later became known as Ishbiliya (Arabic: إشبيلية) after the Muslim conquest in 712. During the Muslim rule in Spain, Seville came under the jurisdiction of the Caliphate of Córdoba before becoming the independent Taifa of Seville; later it was ruled by the Muslim Almoravids and the Almohads until finally being incorporated into the Christian Kingdom of Castile under Ferdinand III in 1248. After the discovery of the Americas, Seville became one of the economic centres of the Spanish Empire as its port monopolised the trans-oceanic trade and the Casa de Contratación (House of Trade) wielded its power, opening a Golden Age of arts and literature. In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan departed from Seville for the first circumnavigation of the Earth. Coinciding with the Baroque period of European history, the 17th century in Seville represented the most brilliant flowering of the city’s culture; then began a gradual economic and demographic decline as silting in the Guadalquivir forced the trade monopoly to relocate to the nearby port of Cádiz.
The 20th century in Seville saw the tribulations of the Spanish Civil War, decisive cultural milestones such as the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and Expo ’92, and the city’s election as the capital of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia.
