Mallorca: jellyfish and mountains

Earlier on I promised you all a picture post and here it is. Behold.

I like these little boats, first of all because I like boats, period. And also, those aren’t touristy glass bottom boats and interesting as a ride on one of those might be, they worship the Venga Boys: no matter how far out at sea they are, you can hear them: Boom boom boom boom, I want you in my room – and now everybody!

It’s probably my Austrian gene coming through but I can’t stop taking pictures of the little mountains here. Look at them: aren’t they pretty?

The sea is beautiful and warm and – sadly – full of red jellyfish. Ever so often you hear some swimmer cry out in pain. People are reluctant to pee on each other in public (urine helps against the burns), so the victims normaly just go to the first aid tent. Most of the jellyfish are dead and end up at the beach, but people like to fling the dead jellyfish back into the sea. Way to go! There is a trash can right next to you, you imbecile. I bet you put drowned wasps back into your drink as well?

For some reason people like cats so I went all paparazzi over this one (once I realised there was a cat there, it was pretty much invisible on that stone wall). She wasn’t impressed. They never are.

And that’s it for now, ladies and gentlemen. I’ll leave you with a promise of pictures of food and Shiva eyes and more pretty landscapes. And jellyfish, if I manage to photograph one before somebody throws it back into the open waters.


About enjirux

I'm a twenty-something female who moved from Austria to Scotland in 2009. Formally addicted to coffee, the UK has turned me into a bit of a tea snob and made me discover lots of wonderful things, e.g. pies. While I love to do a lot of things like writing, taking pictures, baking, traveling and spending days lazing about, my current pay checks says language teacher and will continue to say so until 2013 where there will be no pay check but dust and snakes as I'll venture into Asia. But that's still quite some time away and meanwhile I'll share my thoughts and worries and pictures of pies and short trips with you while gleefully butchering the English language.
