So, the Torres takeover of the Thomson travel blog has finally drawn to a close.
This past week, my driving guide to Majorca has featured on the holiday giant’s website. The idea was to try and show a different side to the island, away from the tourist masses and the package resorts.

Anyhow, here’s the final instalment, which features the Moorish town of Alcudia, the Stone Age remains of Ses Paisses and the incredible subterranean wonder that is the Caves of Arta.

Merci Thomson for posting my Majorcan itineraries on your travel blog this week.
St Elm, Majorca
Here’s the link to my penultimate guide. In today’s post, I make a beeline for the yacht-filled marina at Port Andratx, the market town of Andratx and the oh-so pretty bay of St Elm.

Interestingly, the latter was the shack d’amour of the composer Frederick Chopin and his French bit of fluff, Madame George Sand. For the full lowdown, read the complete guide here…
Driving around Majorca in my Fiat 500
I’m rather excited. Reason being, an article I wrote is the headline post on the Thomson travel blog. Earlier in the year, I jetted off to Majorca – or Mallorca if you’re posh – for a little tripette. While I was there I devised some driving routes around the island which I road tested – literally. They’ll be featured on the Thomson blog over the course of this week. Today sees me tick off Majorca’s chic captial, Palma. Oh, and I wax lyrical about Fiat 500s…
