  1. I’ve been there! Faboulous looking girls on the beach. Do you have any photies of gorgeous babes? Hotboy

  2. I didn’t mean your pair bond! Posting photies like that of your pair bond isn’t fair. Anyway, I don’t think you’re going to last much longer since you are already retired and we all know what that means… Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a bell that summons you to heaven, or to heaven. Anyway, you’ve got a hut with electricity and that’s good. Hmmm? Okay, I’ll look after your wife as well. Or she’ll look after me. After dealing you with, a joe floating about in the hut would be a piece of piss! Tell her Hotboy is willing! Hotboy

  3. Hi, I am going to Mallorca with my kids in March and would like to try some easy yet picturesque trekking with them. They are good at walking but rather small. I was thinking of finding routes that are not too long and not too much uphill. Can you give me some advice? Is Fornalutx- Soller in only one direction a good choice, in that case which direction is the easiest and how long is it? Or between Fornalutx and Biniaraix? Other routes? 1 hour is OK, max 2 hours.

  4. Be careful when you get into the tracks through the olive groves, above Fornalutx and Biniaraix. If you’re adventurous, better have a GPS as the farmers sometimes obliterate the painted markers or turn over the stones and sometimes block off the tracks. We had to spend the night out on the mountainside after losing the track. Evidently it’s not uncommon to get lost and there’s no mountain rescue. That’s why the guides do well. They don’t advertise the number of deaths, but we were told they average about 7 a year! However, a few precautions, being vigilant and giving yourself plenty of time, water and snacks and the walking is fantastic.

  5. thanks for the book tip, we have visited the area twice and have done the walks you mentioned and a few more. Its a spectacular place hope you enjoyed it.

  6. Hi we are visiting Fornalutx in April and are keen to know where we can get some good walking maps. Any help greatly appreciated!
