Day Seventeen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Benirras, Ibiza #LP

I don’t have much to report on today other than attending the three hour yoga class, lazing around the yoga centre and a quick swim at Cala Benirras.

Peace and love to one and all!

Day Sixteen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Benirras to San Joan, Ibiza #LP

I had a lovely nights sleep in the pagoda at Ibiza Yoga, I initially wasn’t sure when I saw how basic it was, it is almost a kin to glamping. There’s a shared toilet and shower, so you have to time when to get ready, but other than that it has a nice comfy bed and plenty of storage. The lay in was much needed and I felt really rested.

Today we went into San Joan to have a look around what they call a “hippy market” not quite what I was expecting in fact it was very over priced with plenty of alternative looking people, but that’s the only thing that can be said was slightly hippy. If you’re into boutique shopping this will be rather disappointing for you.

The afternoon was taken up with three hours of yoga, it sounds a lot but it was broken into parts with the first hour being meditative, some theory and slow warm ups. The next 90 minutes was taken up with flows also known as vinyasas and then a nice long savasana. I had initially thought I wasn’t going to be able to complete the full session in this heat, but I did.

That evening we went to the drumming party on the beach. Every Sunday musicans from all over the island come to Benirras to hold the largest sunset beach party on the island. I thought it might be quite chaotic, but surprisingly it wasn’t, even though there’s only one road in and out of Benirras. It was interesting see, but if you’re not staying in the north of the island it is certainly not worth the trouble travelling there.

I’ll update my blog more later.

Peace and love to one and all!

Day Fifteen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Ibiza Town to Benirras, Ibiza #LP

Well, I’ve had about two hours sleep and I feel exhausted today from our Pacha clubbing experience tomorrow. However, we paced ourselves last night by going out at 11pm for a couple of cocktails and then heading onto Pacha at 12.45am. I’m surprised I managed to stay until 6.30am, Charlotte was a little later than me staying at the club until 7.30am. I enjoyed the club experience a little more than Ushuaia, but the drinks are premium priced with a simple Vodka and Red Bull being charged at 19 Euros, a small bottle of water for 10 Euros, bottled beers at 12 Euros and shots at 8 Euros each. These prices are unbelievable bearing in mind that entry to the club costs at least 50 Euros, it can turn out to be a very expensive night. I guess that’s why people stay out clubbing all night to get their monies worth. These past couple of days were my first experience of Ibiza and clubbing here. Would I come back? I don’t think I will, I’ve been to two of the top clubs and that’s enough for me and quite frankly I don’t know what all the fuss is about. The original club nights in the UK were much better and not over priced. Maybe I’m a little negative, as I’m writing this blog with lack of sleep, but I can categorically say I won’t be in a rush to return.

So, I’m heading to Ibiza Yoga today, which is situated in the north of the island. I’m looking forward to relaxing, eating some nice food and busting out some yoga poses over the next week.

Peace and love to one and all!

Day Fourteen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Ibiza Town to San Antonio, Ibiza #LP

The boat trip from San Antonio was a welcomed relief from the heat today, it cruised along the beautiful South West coast line. There were lots of hidden coves and beaches with many villas precariously pitched along the cliff line. I found it to be quite serene, very magical and mystical! After the three hour cruise we headed back San Antonio and then into Ibiza Town for our second club night, which is Pacha. I’m looking forward to the funk room and some decent tunes this evening. I’ll write more on our clubbing experience tomorrow.

Peace and love to one and all!

Day Thirteen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Ibiza Town to Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza #LP

Today Charlotte arrived for a couple of days partying in Ibiza. We decided to go to Ushuaia, which started at 5pm and ended at midnight. So, Red Bull was not needed and it was a gentle start to a club night. :-) I thought the venue was superb and the performers were great too. However, the music was a little hardcore with the DJs playing trance, we should have asked about the type of music being played before shedding out 110 Euros on a couple of tickets. Oh well!

Our second night out will be at Pacha, so that will be more our style. Looking forward to the funk room. I’ll write more on our adventures shortly.

Peace and love to one and all!
