Late last week, my dear friends Mitchell and Candice rounded out their trip through Spain in Mallorca. It was such a pleasure to have them visit; between the wining and dining, long chats, and exploring new places together, it was difficult to see them go on Saturday.
I met Mitchell and Candice while attending MSU, and quickly formed a friendship with each of them. Following graduation, we attended the same church, and that really solidified our relationship as we continued to grow in our faith while also being able to celebrate little milestones in one another’s lives over the last several years. They are truly one of the most generous and giving couples that I know, and I am so grateful to have shared a couple days in España with them.
While their time here was short, we managed to squeeze in a visit to the Bellver Castle and La Seu Cathedral in Palma. And the day following, I rented us a car and we drove to the northern tip of the island to see the stunning views that Cap de Formentor offers, as well as the towns of Pollença and Alcúdia. The places we saw together were some of my must-see places on the island, but doing so with Mitch and Candice was really what made each visit so special.
The first of many views as we climbed the stairs towards the Bellver Castle. Aren’t they just so cute?The views, oh my heart be still.On our second day, we began the drive towards Cap de Formentor and made a pit stop at all over the overlooks. The views changed, but never lessened in their beauty. I think this is my new favorite spot in Mallorca.The lighthouse that we eventually made our way to…That water, if it wasn’t chilly and such a long way down, I could have dived right into it.The infamous stairs of Pollença; we somehow started at the top (blaming that on lack of signage in the village), so we first walked down the 365 stairs and then climbed back up.
I really could not have asked for a better couple of days with Candice and Mitchell. I am so thankful they made the effort to get to Mallorca while in Spain, and that I had the opportunity to show off this beautiful island that I call home.
