As our 15th year publishing abcMallorca draws to a close, I am once again surprised by how quickly time passes.
For this edition we have focused on Palma – the vibrant capital which offers so much to do and see, even for those of us lucky to live here all year round. As a team we’ve come up with a list of hidden places in Palma that you may not know about yet. Why not try something new and experience Palma in a different light this winter?
It’s the people who make this island great, which is becoming more apparent as the rich and famous – who could live anywhere in the world – are choosing to have a second home here on Mallorca. Meet the award-winning German Hollywood actor Til Schweiger, who says the best thing he ever did was buy a home here (page 68).
Many people dream of pursuing their creative interests but more often than not, time, work and money can get in the way. We meet author David Coubrough – who has recently published his second book Death in Deià – to hear his inspiring story about becoming a writer. And on the topic of literature, check out page 74 to find out what Rosie recommends this season.
Winter is upon us, so make sure you make the most it and check out our Top 10 things to do on page 60. One of my personal favourites is a visit to the market, where you can do your weekly food shop and also enjoy a spot of lunch. Read our review on page 48 to find out why eating at one of Palma’s food markets is growing in popularity.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a very special thank you to our hard-working team who contribute month after month to ensure abcMallorca is the island’s leading lifestyle magazine. Yet again, our greatest achievement is to have the trust of so many loyal clients who work with us year after year. We are very thankful to all of you.
And finally, to our readers, we wish you a very happy holiday season and all the best wishes for an amazing 2020 full of wonderful experiences on this beautiful island.
Enjoy life on Mallorca!
Helen and the abcMallorca team
