Whilst on the island we did some excursions. One of my favorites was a trip to Mount Toro. This is a small mountain which is the highest point on the island. The picture below is a view from the top.
When you get to the top of the mountain, there is a small church, which looks very nice until you walk around the side of it and there is a bloody great big mobile phone mast. Oh well :-)
The above picture is of my wife admiring the view whilst we had a break from a fairly long coach journey, I think the town nearby is called Fornells.
When we could drag our selves away from the all inclusive bar, we took some cycle rides. There was a very nice beach about a 10 minute ride from the hotel. The picture above shows a part of the beach. The weather was starting to turn at that point, as a small storm was brewing, but it made for a good picture ;-)
The picture above is of a bar that is literally carved into the side of a cliff. At night time this is also a night club. It was a very strange place, as the dance floor extends quite far into the cliff. It's a pity we couldn't go one night, but it was quite far from were our hotel was.
This was a good break, especially as a few weeks previously I resigned from my job, so this meant we could go away before I started the new company.
