On a snowy icy cold day in London like today, it’s the perfect time to relive warm memories of summer holidays.
Here’s the second post on my mini-holiday (kind of like a mini-moon!) to Formentera. The other way to travel to the island of Formentera is by ferry, which takes around 45 minutes from Ibiza. There is no airport on the tiny Balearic island of Formentera, which is about 12 miles long, so the only way to reach it is by boat.
But it is as they say, about enjoying the journey, not the just the destination, and one of my favourite moments was seeing the island of Ibiza from the sea, with Dalt Vila, the ancient city on the hill with it’s ramparts and vast terraces, rising above it all. Dalt Vila is a world heritage site dating back to the Phoenician times (1500-300 B.C) and even more impressive when viewed from the sea.
I love the roar of the big engines, mixing with the crash of the waves the big boat creates in it’s wake. And after a stretch of open sea, seeing Formentera appear on the horizon, with it’s promise of tranquility, peace and escape…..
Later this week, Formentera itself.
