Valdemossa is also a beautiful, quaint town but unfortunately it was pouring horizontal rain. We went for a second visit to the Asian buffet, then went to Pueblo Espanol, which was certainly worth the £3 admittance fee, and finally we checked into our hotel ...

... for dinner - plus a freshly bought baguette every day. Not only does it save money, it is also freakin delicious with fresh salami and brie, nom...
