He and his fellow musician Diego Blanco, form the duo Babel, and Blue Dance is their new album. It is a lyrical mix of sonorous and arty music using both modern and ancient instruments such...

Those boots are made for walking


During this cool and bracing winter weather in Mallorca, I like nothing better than to pull on some warm layers and a good windproof jacket and head up into the hills for a hike. In my book there are two different sorts: the relaxing and the challenging!

Marathon moments in Palma


Yesterday, despite being a Sunday, I was up at 6.30am and donning my running wear ready for the annual half marathon race in Palma. Some years ago I ran the whole marathon but as the 42km course consists of two quite onerous loops, I decided that once was enough!

Scrumptious fare at Santi Taura of Lloseta
