Hello! I have been in Mallorca! I have not caught up on the internets, so please tell me if anything thrilling has happened in my absence.

Mallorca was lovely, with much fine scenery and beaches and food and whatnot. Though I would have liked the GREAT HEAT OF THE DAYSTAR to maybe turn itself down a bit when we were climbing up a very steep hill on our second day's hiking. I may have shaken my fist at the sky, a bit. Though at least, unlike B, I wasn't carrying 13.5 kilos of toddler on my back at the time.

Also re: hiking, a big red flag to watch out for in guidebooks is "little-used path". Well, not unless you like bashing your way through extremely spiky vegetation/slidey gravel/steep rocks trying to find said path, eventually giving up and making your noble driver [livejournal.com profile] niallm come and meet you at an entirely different location to the one you agreed on earlier.

Also A is obsessed with the sea. I am fairly sure he doesn't have the Innsmouth Look...

So I got a cab home from town yesterday because B and I went out for a large tasty meal and I was feeling full and lazyvery pregnant, and hence got to hear a travel ad on FM104 for a package holiday to Istanbul. The ad narrator talked about the excellent value, lovely hotel, price including flights and everything, really, you should come to Istanbul on this special deal, and that you could see all the sights, including...

(would he mention the Hagia Sophia, magnificent example of Byzantine architecture?)

(would he mention the Ottoman palaces and mosques?)

(would he mention the fashionable new bars and hotels?)

...Europe's largest shopping centre. Well, that'd have me on a plane to any destination, I'm sure.

Though maybe not certain parts of Peru.
