At Port Adriano

PORT ADRIANO 10 PORT ADRIANO 7

One of the more well known spanish Islands would definitely be Mallorca, I recently visited but instead of going to the main land or the areas that I’ve heard of or seen friends visit, I was invited to go to Port Adriano, a newly developed marina that was designed by Philippe Starck. We arrived at Palma de Mallorca airport, jumped in a car, drove to the Port (the journey was around 20/30 mins) then checked into the Port Adriano Hotel and began to wander around for a bit.
I guess the whole idea of it being a Port didn’t quite kick in until we got to the marina, where all of the boats were docked, it was a pretty cool sight. On the first night Shini and I decided to pick our favourite boats which then lead to us devising plans on how they would become ours ..we of course failed to come up with anything tangible but it was good to dream. Each boat had such strong personalities. Whether it was a simple, white and sophisticated one or a completely customised, big speakers everywhere, disco balls featuring one, nonetheless it was quite nice to see them all lined up next to each other.

Whilst walking along the Marina, there were quite a few restaurants and cafes, in turn making slightly harder but equally exciting for us when it came to meal times. Being by the sea meant that a lot of them had great seafood offerings, so I would definitely head here, for your next holiday, just for that if you love all things Seafood. This being said I personally stuck to all things meat and had no issues finding something that tasted great.

I never thought to come to a Port for a holiday, especially since I don’t exactly own a boat, however there are quite a few options for renting, plus if you love chilling by the sea with great weather and awesome food, then this is the place for you. As it’s been newly developed it hasn’t got to that overly crowded state yet, as most areas within the spanish islands can be, so visit now whilst it’s still a semi-hidden gem!

Stay tuned for Part 2, where I’ll be showing you all that we got up to whilst out at sea!

Brunchin’ times

October 10, 2014

BRUNCH. Now I’d say its a fairly important meal of the day, especially if like me, Breakfast isn’t your thing. Personally I feel like Saturday is truly the most “brunchable” day of the week.

Picture this:

You meet up with friends around, say 11am, spend copious amounts of time catching up, ordering food, laughing and such. Then a certain realisation kicks in, what am you going to do with the rest of your day. You look at your watch and see its now 3pm, you’re shocked but you also find it quite hilarious that you’ve been there for so long. You decide to continue the chilled day with a walk around London for a bit, you stumble across a rollerblading party, right in the middle of Green Park. You feel like you are genuinely in another time, let’s say the 80s, where everything is just so chilled and fun; then you retire home, lie on your sofa and spend the evening watching Scandal with your friends.

Isn’t this what ideal Saturdays are made of, well I think so. As you’ve probably guessed, that was pretty much how I spent my Saturday a few weeks back and honestly, a good brunch, like the one at Chotto Matte, was the key to that Saturday being perfect.. okay okay, perhaps it wasn’t the only key, but they do have a seriously awesome menu!

Currently sitting in bed, thinking of ways to get my blogging “mojo” back. With all the work I do at The Apartment, so often it’s overlooked that it all started because I am a blogger. I guess it’s overlooked because of how much i’ve neglected this blog. If I was lacking content, it could be easy to just blame it on that, and say well i’m obviously not supposed to be blogging as i’ve got nothing to blog about, however I genuinely have so many things I could be posting. I think I could easily do a post a day, which is kinda crazy, as my current track record looks a little more like 1, maybe 2 a month. Oh the shame. The lame excuse of lack of time is about to creep in and I can see you all gently yet sarcastically slapping your foreheads whilst whispering “yeah, yeah tell it someone who cares, bro”. Don’t worry I won’t go on and on about how i’m going to be a better blogger and how ‘work’ has been crazy, i’ll just show you. Not only am I going to be blogging more (you can let off the party poppers now) i’m actually going to be vlogging, weekly what I get up to, granted my life is interesting enough that week. I guess i’m going reality TV on you, the difference? I promise none of the vlogs will be scripted and they will be a fun little look in to the Life of Pi, – couldn’t help myself there, they’ll be a look at the Life of me. So stay tuned, no need to be patient just kinda come with an open mind.
