45How comes i didn't see this thread before?
This summer i have done an unusual trip to my standards, 2,5 weeks house sitting in Mallorca in June/early July and i have enjoyed it.
We had to take care of a dog, a cat and the garden but could explore the island with the owner's car. The house was on an isolated location in Es Pla with no neighbours in sight. The views from the garden resembled an African savanna and in my imagination i saw elephants and giraffes emerging, an no, i wasn't suffering from a delirium. Away from the big resorts (note that i haven't even seen places like s' Arenal, Magaluf and alike) Mallorca remains surprisingly unspoilt in many parts. If i would go back i would like to spend at least one night in Palma which is a fine city, and i would also want to spend a couple of days and nights in the Tramuntana. We have done 3 day trips up there but each time it was quite a drive to get there and because we were based on the other side of the island it didn't feel like i have explored and experienced this stunning region properly.
Furthermore this summer i have been to the Belgian Ardennes for a couple of days, my preferred city escape on a short driving distance from home. I always enjoy it there. At the end of this month i have planned 3 days on the Belgian coast with friends to celebrate my birthday.
We intend doing another trip of about 10 days early Oct but i don't know yet where we will end up....
My dream holiday 'at this moment' (because to me that is constantly evolving) would be an extended trip of 6 weeks or longer to maybe Colombia or Myanmar, but responsibilities at home have prevented me of making such longer trips in the past 10 years.
