This is going to sound crazy. We arrived to Menorca in the south, where the airport is located in the capitol Mahon. Our airbnb was located in the north of the Island, close to the popular city Ciutadella. We started driving to the north, typed the end location in the gps. 40 MIN TO THE OTHER END OF THE ISLAND! So easy and funny to think about.
The weird thing though, was that the driveway was created in the middle of the island, so even though the Island is small, there is no water to see, but green plantations and small trees. That’s it. But it kept the excitement growing until we reached our destination. First we wanted to find the Airbnb. After searching for an hour, entering a private mansion, that clearly wasn’t our place, but a rich british family that was surprised by getting unexpected visitors:)
Typical. Well we found our Airbnb after driving back to a sideroad, that we barely noticed, because it was as narrow as a cyklingpath haha. The Airbnb was hidden at the end of the road. We arrived, went inside, and suddenly we didn’t want the big mansion anymore. How cute and island-vibe the place was! Everything handmade by the woman that lived there. She was an artist, working at the touristic market in Ciutadella every night.
So far so good with our little holiday. Every night, we went to Ciutadella, The city was small, with a harbor in the center. It felt so calm to take a walk along the harbor, or a nice dinner at the restaurants surrounding. Plenty of open shops in the night, both touristic traditional menorcan styles, and also more artistic places. It’s definitely a place to bring the wallet:)
During the daytime, we explored 2-3 beaches everyday. They were all unique from each other, which gave it a lot of variation to explore. It’s impossible to visit all of the places on one trip, so we had to choose the ones we felt the most attracted to. It never got boring and every new exploration was filled with satisfaction and stimulation. The landscape was unreal, perfect for shooting. We did a few shoots during our trip. We definitely recommend to travel to Menorca for shooting. The photos we took are right here:[/one_half_last]
That was a little story about our holiday this summer. All that’s left to say; Go explore Menorca for yourself:)
