Sunshine, sand, swimsuits, and salty tang in the air, Palma de Mallorca is a well-known spot for those looking for a good time. But beyond the famous nightlife and sunny days, what is there to do in Mallorca's main city? Here are four reasons to make Palma de Mallorca a destination on your next holiday!
Wellness
I now know that being vulnerable is a good thing; I know that I am loved and that I am strong. I appreciate every day, the rainy storms, the sunshine, the good coffee in the morning, everything. I can't get enough of it. I am more fearless then ever and have never been more calm and relaxed.

It's the holiday season again. If you are like me, you might have a hard time choosing between the splendor of history, the beckoning of the beach, the call of the quaint quiet life watching the magnificent sunset, or the craving for adventure.

An original sin of sorts plagues this bountiful island, riddled, infected and rotting as it is with the suffering of animals.
Business
What ultimately happens with Mallorca's entrepreneurial community may or may not resemble what's been done in Cleveland. It's for the Mallorcans to decide what's best for them. With over 35,000 people from 183 countries having registered for my MOOC, I know similar discussions are taking place in other parts of the world.

The response to my last post, 'Travel On $1200 a Month!' was enthusiastic, but I received many emails from people wondering if I could travel so cheaply only because I was in Mexico. Happily, this is not true.

A recent study estimated that 99% of the population of America and Western Europe never see a clear night sky unobscured by dust, smog and light pollution. In cities such as London, the firmament simply never darkens. Now imagine yourself reclining in a desert oasis on a clear moonless night, the air still and silent as you stare up at velvety black heavens carpeted with stars. Linger long enough, and you'll see satellites inching across the sky and glimpse shooting stars.
