A Menorcan Sojourn — Day Six

Binibeca was high on my list of places to visit during our week in Menorca, and had also featured heavily on the “Places to see” lists of people I had asked to give me their recommendations. A whole fisherman’s village, again built on to top of a cliff beside the sea, Binibeca Vell is all

A Menorcan sojourn — Day Five

  We started the day by turning left out of the resort and down towards the coast, rather than turning right and up towards the main roads.   Arenal D’en Castell sits on the northern coast of Menorca, and therefore on the coast.   There are plenty of places to park that then allow you to wander

A Menorcan Sojourn — Day Four

The one about the yoga retreat

I don’t actually know where to start with this one if I am honest.   To such an extent that I haven’t been able to get my head around the angle I want to come at this post and have, therefore, sat on it for ten days.     I should probably just start at the beginning

HDYGG — 27th May

Gosh it feels like such a long time since I sat down and wrote a blog post I am not sure I even remember how these days.   Seems that life is rushing past me faster than ever and I find myself approaching the middle of the year without really knowing what has happened to the
