    I’ve always wanted to go to Mallorca. My cousin hiked the Way of Saint James from France to Spain, and said that people along the journey mentioned it a few times. I read a book to familiarize myself with the trip he took called “The Best Way” by Bill Walker (, and I’m really impressed that he walked that far. While the hiking version of his trip does not sound like something I’d like to do, as I’m not much into adventure vacations, Mallorca sounds wonderful. It’s definitely at the top of my list.
