Much as we love Rome, we’re eager to work on our Spanish. So after our housesit in Rome ended, we headed for Spain. Thanks to a tip from one of Chris’s colleagues at CBO, we decided to explore the Spanish Mediterranean island of Mallorca. The island is a huge summer beach destination, but in March it’s much quieter. We spent our first day in Mallorca’s capital, Palma, soaking up the sun, strolling the streets, and relishing the Renaissance, Gothic, and Art Deco architecture.
