A Tram Trip to Port Soller, Mallorca - 18th August 2011

It's a few days in to the Mallorcan holiday. Nosher's up in the hills for a few miles of walking from the villa up to the edge of Sóller and on up in to the hills back over to Bianaraix (for a beer and a freshly-squeezed orange juice) - it's a trail that had been pioneered by Louise and Noddy a couple of days before. Then it's a group dinner, preceded by the application of fake tattoos. The day after, we get the ex-San Francisco tram to the nearby Port Sóller - slightly more touristy, but equipped with a beach and an expensive yacht marina.
