Pix of the trip: Ibiza
Chalkmarks: San Antonio, Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

What’s it’s like being in Ibiza when the clubs are closed? Well…it’s going from the hotel, to the beach, to a cafe, to a bar for pintxo and Cava, watching the sun set, and back to the hotel. Not much really accomplished. But we did climb to the castle – up to Dalt Vila wandering the steep cobbled alleyways that hide what’s around every corner of this Unesco World Heritage Site. Lots of small, fluffy, yappy dogs, mainly. We took plenty of orange sky photos up there. We booked a boat trip to Formentera to walk the 6km (almost 4miles) along the coastline and soft white sand, with the sea lapping on both sides of the beach, until the end point where the water meets. We did the same at Talamanca. And in San Antonio. Then there was carnival. Getting into the spirit of the celebrations we shot Mari Mayans – made from 18 herbs. Oh, and we did some aerial yoga. Not bad. We could rave about Ibiza all day. If this is winter we’ll be back. Did you know that during the summer months 3.5million holidaymakers travel to this small Balearic island for the superclubs and sunset cafes? Almost a million are Britons. But in February, the beaches are empty, the weather is warm and you can still have a Cava (or two). Pacha will have to wait. This is our view (below).
