- “Palma Cathedral is an EXQUISITE example of craftsmanship”
My ideal traveling companion is... my boyfriend. We always stay on a boat in the harbor, so we can explore the coast.
This place inspires me because... there is a lovely mix of old and new architecture.
The cultural spot I love is... Palma Cathedral. It is an exquisite example of craftsmanship and stonework.
My favorite restaurant is... Abaco. I order Padron Peppers and dates wrapped in bacon plus a Mojito. At midnight they throw rose petals over the guests.
My most-treasured discovery is... Sa Calobra, a beautiful, unspoilt cove.
My inflight essentials are... one of my own bags and a Globe-Trotter carry-on.
