first up, Mallorca is hot! the temp went up to 36°C on the first day we were there. this didn't stop a lot of people though from enjoying the beautiful white sand beaches surrounding the biggest of the Balearic islands.
this also didn't stop us from exploring other wonderful stuff that it has to offer apart from its beautiful white sand beaches.

we instead decided to go inland. we decided to take the vintage train that traversed the marvellous Serra de Tramuntana route from the capital Palma to the sleepy town of Soller since 1912.
|the beautiful Tramuntana mountains served as a backdrop for little quaint Mallorquin villages|

it was a wonderful ride and when we got to Soller, we got on a smaller train (actually, the first electrical tram in Mallorca) passing through the center of the town towards the port of Soller . it was short and sweet but definitely something unforgettable!
here's a little video i took as we passed through the heart of the town:
|quiet and not as crowded as the beaches in the capital|
