|Holidaying in the Mediterranean: Majorcaâ€™s major pull Published: 29.10.2008 | Author: pmcindoe | Category: Travel
Many people like to travel in the winter in search of a bit of sunshine when it is normally absent from the UK. However Air Max 2018 Womens Shoes , with much of Europe suffering the same fate at that time of year, the only viable option to see the best of the continent is to go during the summer â€“ for families with children this is perfect as they are off school for longer periods and in recent years the sun has been a stranger to British skies in the summer as well as the winter.
One area that is traditionally popular with Britons is the Mediterranean. Spain, southern France and Italy in particular see a huge influx of tourists each summer. In recent years the Balearic Islands, just off the east coast of Spain, have become increasingly popular. This island group â€“ consisting of Majorca Air Max 2018 Womens , Minorca, Formentera and Ibiza â€“ is an autonomous state, with Palma, situated on the island of Majorca, its capital.
The cathedral of Palma â€“ also know as La Seu â€“ is one of the most prominent landmarks of the capital as it boasts one of the highest naves in Europe at 44 metres. The building was founded in 1229 but it took 372 years to complete. Built in a shorter time â€“ started and completed in the 14th century â€“ is Bellver Castle. The circular castle is still in good shape and stands on a hill overlooking Palma. Up until the 1950s it was used as a prison but nowadays it is purely a tourist attraction.
Whilst the sun and the beaches are the main attraction to many holidaymakers Cheap Nike Air Max 360 Womens , Majorca also has the Serra de Tramuntana â€“ a mountain range that peaks at 1,445 metres. The Tramuntana Range receives significantly more rainfall than the rest of the island and snow often falls on the crest in the winter.
Majorca has also become the home to many celebrities who appreciate the diversity of the island. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have a holiday home there, and Michael Schumacher, Claudia Schiffer and Peter Stringfellow all have homes on the island. One of the most famous Majorcans is tennis star Rafael Nadal â€“ who won his first Wimbledon title in 2008 and in so doing became the first player since 1980 to win both Wimbledon and the French Open in the same year.
With so much to offer, the majority of Majorca holiday reviews are positive Nike Air Max 360 Womens Black , meaning that anyone who decides to take a trip to one of the biggest Mediterranean islands is in for a treat.

SYDNEY Nike Air Max 360 Womens Sale , July 29 (Xinhua) -- Australian Indigenous sporting star, role model and former Australian of the year Adam Goodes is reportedly considering retirement from the Australian Football League (AFL) following a spate of racial taunts directed towards him.
Ever since 2013, opposition supporters have regularly booed Goodes away grounds while Australian conservative commentators have said he brought the issue on himself because he "picked" on a 13-year-old girl for calling him a gorilla while playing at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In May, Goodes received criticism for dancing his indigenous war cry, directed towards the opposing teams supporters in celebration of kicking a goal.
"It's a war cry dance Nike Air Max 360 Womens Shoes , so it would be silly to do it to my own supporters," Goodes said at the time. "It's a dance that I haven't been able to perform with the Indigenous All Stars. I haven't had an opportunity to show that passion, and that pride about being a warrior and representing my people and where I come from."
"There was nothing untoward to the Carlton supporters. It was actually something for them to stand up and go, 'yep we see you, and we acknowledge you - bring it on'.
"My teammates loved it Nike Air Max 360 Womens , the Carlton players loved it."
The controversy flared up once more during Sunday's Aussie Rules match against the West Coast Eagles at Subiaco Oval in Perth where Goodes was subjected to a torrent of abuse from the opposition's supporters.
Goodes's Indigenous team-mate Lewis Jetta imitated the 35-year- old when he performed a war dance at a section of the Subiaco Oval crowd.
As part of the routine, Jetta threw a make-believe spear at the crowd in an aggressive manner.
Jetta said he was sick of the boos constantly directed to Goodes, saying the war-dance was in support of his team-mate.
"He's a superstar of the game, a superstar for the Swans, fans should show more respect for what he's done for the game Cheap Air Max 360 Womens ," Jetta said. "All this booing stuff needs to be thrown out the window."
Fairfax Media reported last week that Goodes - twice awarded the Brownlow Medal for being the best player in an AFL season - is contemplating retirement due to the effect the booing is having on his team-mates.
It is not known if he will play again on Saturday at the Sydney Cricket Ground against the Adelaide Crows after his team gave him a couple of days off.
The AFL chief executive Gillion McLachlan denounced the constant booing of Goodes during Saturday's match, however she stopped just short of calling it racist.
Australia's political leaders have also come out in support of the star, deploring the racist undertones by fans during recent AFL matches.
