Re: WHAT TO DO WITH A SEVEN YEAROLD?

Hi

Someone commented on a TA post the other day that there is now a water play area at the zoo. I think the zoo is a great idea, and I would think a 7 year old would be extremely happy!

Re: Macarella parking

We love having breakfast on the beach in Menorca. We always pack up a feast of bacon pastries, ensaimadas, melon and grapes bought from the supermarket on the way out of Cala'n Bosch. Sitting on the beach before it gets hot or crowded, taking in the view and having a little paddle - perfect!

Re: Tragedy at Cala Fonts

Very sad, hard to imagine how difficult this must be for his family. There was also a report of a 50 year old woman who died in Arenal D'en Castell. Apparently she had an asthma attack and could not be saved. Awful.

I will give them a go and report back. It's a good deal, and we won't be using the car all that much so as long as we come in cheaper or similar to taxi's to and from the Airport (staying in Cala'n Bosch) we might as well.

Thanks

Re: CAR HIRE

Keels and Wheels were recommended in another post (Slartibartfast re Boat Hire). I have 2 trips planned this year and have booked Poppy cars for the second trip, but thought I would try Keels and Wheels. Has anyone any experience of them for an airport pickup? Their quote is very competitive. regard...

Thank you.I did start using an online Catalan course but gave up really quickly. My kids get so embarrassed by my attempts!

Dictionary/phrase book

Hello
We have visited so many times and forgotten to buy a book to help with the language. Please can anyone recommend a good book or App?

Thanks

It looks like they are on the case! However I find the comment interesting that it is left very late each year to spruce up the beaches.
