|Holidaying in the Mediterranean: Majorca’s major pull Published: 29.10.2008 | Author: pmcindoe | Category: Travel Many people like to travel in the winter in search of a bit of sunshine when it is normally absent from the UK. However Benjamin Pavard World Cup Jersey , with much of Europe suffering the same fate at that time of year, the only viable option to see the best of the continent is to go during the summer – for families with children this is perfect as they are off school for longer periods and in recent years the sun has been a stranger to British skies in the summer as well as the winter.
One area that is traditionally popular with Britons is the Mediterranean. Spain, southern France and Italy in particular see a huge influx of tourists each summer. In recent years the Balearic Islands, just off the east coast of Spain, have become increasingly popular. This island group – consisting of Majorca, Minorca, Formentera and Ibiza – is an autonomous state, with Palma Antoine Griezmann World Cup Jersey , situated on the island of Majorca, its capital.
The cathedral of Palma – also know as La Seu – is one of the most prominent landmarks of the capital as it boasts one of the highest naves in Europe at 44 metres. The building was founded in 1229 but it took 372 years to complete. Built in a shorter time – started and completed in the 14th century – is Bellver Castle. The circular castle is still in good shape and stands on a hill overlooking Palma. Up until the 1950s it was used as a prison but nowadays it is purely a tourist attraction.
Whilst the sun and the beaches are the main attraction to many holidaymakers, Majorca also has the Serra de Tramuntana – a mountain range that peaks at 1,445 metres. The Tramuntana Range receives significantly more rainfall than the rest of the island and snow often falls on the crest in the winter.
Majorca has also become the home to many celebrities who appreciate the diversity of the island. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have a holiday home there, and Michael Schumacher, Claudia Schiffer and Peter Stringfellow all have homes on the island. One of the most famous Majorcans is tennis star Rafael Nadal – who won his first Wimbledon title in 2008 and in so doing became the first player since 1980 to win both Wimbledon and the French Open in the same year.
With so much to offer, the majority of Majorca holiday reviews are positive, meaning that anyone who decides to take a trip to one of the biggest Mediterranean islands is in for a treat.

If it's Thursday, it must be soccer. Or ballet. Or piano, voice, religious school, jiu-jitsu, or t-ball. Or is that Wednesday?
Between school and all the available extracurricular activities today, kids-even very young ones-can seem busier than their working parents. Of course, we all want our children to have every advantage we can give them Alexandre Lacazzete World Cup Jersey , and so many of the activities which used to be offered in school have been eliminated by budget cuts. And, gone are the days of kids jumping on their bikes after school and roaming neighborhoods with their friends, until dinnertime-it just doesn't seem safe, anymore.
So we, as parents, feel obligated to provide supervised activities which not only benefit our kids, physically, but also round out their lives in ways we never could have imagined Adrien Rabiot World Cup Jersey , when we were young.
It can be challenging, Michael's only seven, but he really enjoys soccer, and he's good at it. And Michelle is nearly six, but all her friends are taking ballet, and she feels left out, if she doesn't get to dance, too. But soccer's on one side of town Zinedine Zidane France Jersey , ballet's on the other, karate's across the river, and the only really good gymnastic instructor for kids is in the next county. When does it all become too much, for a family?
One sure sign that you're all too busy is lack of family time. When after-school activities prevent a family from ever eating together, or spending quality time together, then it's time to cut back. Parents who spend more time chauffering their kids than talking with them at the dinner table eventually find themselves disconnected from their children's emotional growth. And, when one parent is driving to and from swim practice, while the other is doing the laundry Wissam Ben Yedder France Jersey , and the only chance to eat is at a drive-thru restaurant, the lack of family contact can create stresses that build slowly, but surely.
Another sign that your kids may be getting too much of too many good things is a decline in their grades at school. Sometimes, we keep our kids so busy that they're just too tired for homework and studying.
Then, there's the financial cost. For every activity, there's the enrollment fee, the cost of uniforms, the gasoline required to get there. When parents find themselves struggling to find the dollars to pay for it all Thomas Lemar France Jersey , it's time to re-assess.
Set some rules: One sport a season, or one arts activity at a time, is plenty for any child. Balance activities between children, so that no one is busier than the rest. Schedule family time, even if it means cutting out other activities. Make schoolwork the number-one priority, and other activities a reward for good grades.
