Eager to finally leave London I booked the first flight I found. Of course, leaving London had to be done in style, so I splurged on business class with British Airways for around 550 GBP. Admittedly I was more concerned with going to a destination with plenty of sun and sea, so taking off over the grey city and soaring away over blue waters, in a few hours I landed on the Spanish Mediterranean island of Majorca. I do remember reading an online article—The Top 10 Hotels in Majorca, Spain—and chose a hotel on good faith. The hotel I selected turned out to be amazing.
A Palace in Old Palma
The old quarter of Palma with its Gothic church spires and centuries old houses in a maze of tiny lanes bursts with Spanish culture. On one lane, near the huge Cathedral La Seu stood the Hotel Can Cera. Built in a 17th century city palace, my five-star boutique hotel, in Italian Renaissance style, had a fine restaurant, spa, Spanish balconies and an ornate patio courtyard. The antique, Majorcan style suite, roof terrace, and exquisite common rooms were hard to leave. Soon, I would see more of Majorca, but not right now. JQ
