Need to Relax
The month of June was very stressful. I found myself immersed in work, the resumption of studies and the A.mi.co. course I am very satisfied with the choices made in recent months, but without even realizing it, I found myself not spending even a minute on myself.
One warm enough afternoon Fulvio and I met to tell each other how it was going and we both thought about a few days of relaxation. we started thinking about what we could do because we had a few days off.
Taking a look at the flights we find an excellent price for Ibiza. Those who know me know very well how much I have always discarded the island of fun, because it does not suit my types of travel.
In the end for 99 € a / r each we bought the ticket without thinking too much.
I was very hesitant, I wasn’t sure I had made the best choice, so I started researching the famous island of Ibiza.
On the search engine I had entered exactly “relax in Ibiza” and I must say that I found several interesting articles on how to avoid nightclubs and enjoy the island by day.
Basically what an elderly couple like us could do was to go to a different beach each time, enjoy the beautiful crystal clear waters and sunbathe with a refreshing Cerveza.
Ibiza, here we come!
On Sunday 23rd we left Fiumicino, armed only with sunscreen and swimwear. 🙂
We arrived in Eivissa at 3 am and fortunately the hotel was only 5 minutes from the airport. After checking in, we took a drink and went to sit on the beach in front of the hotel. The choice of the hotel, in Ibiza center, was really apt because there was really everything close to us, not needing so a means to move us.
The following day, we woke up very calmly, got ready and went to have breakfast. To our surprise, a few meters from us there was a beautiful bar, run by Italians with delicious croissants! After a delicious breakfast, we started walking around Eivissa center, characterized by white houses and small streets.
Our only aim being to find a good location on the beach, we started walking along the beach, packed with people from all over the world. After about a mile, we stopped at one of the most well-known establishments, the Bora Bora not too full of people and for € 30 we rented 2 beds.
I have to tell the truth the sea was not exactly as I expected because of the algae. After sunbathing, we decided to have lunch at Bora Bora for lunch. Having lived in Fuerteventura I had already had the opportunity to taste and appreciate the alioli sauce, a typical Provencal garlic sauce, very similar to mayonnaise. I love it! 🙂 and I could not order it. The alioli sauce is usually served with bread and to follow we had ordered 2 burgers with chips and a beer. it was really all very good, with really fresh flavors.
We spent the rest of the day sunbathing and relaxing, which was unexpectedly possible because, being Monday, there weren’t too many people eager to dance and party.
Upon returning to the hotel, we stopped at a pub to drink a fresh cerveza, and telling us about the first impressions of the island, which I have to say were great for 2 people like us looking to relax on an island like that! 🙂
Pescado del dia
After a shower we prepared to go to dinner in a typical restaurant in Ibiza Town. Comida San Juan is a family business with two small rooms and a small outdoor terrace. It has not changed in the last 30 years and for this reason it remains a milestone of Ibiza. The tables are shared, meaning you can find yourself at the table with socnosciuti. The cuisine is excellent with typical Ibiza flavors and classic Spanish dishes. The price is affordable, for a fish dish you spend about 10 euros. I absolutely recommend you try it and get there early enough to have your name marked on the list and wait around 15/20 minutes for a table to be free for you!
obviously my order could not fail to fall back on the alioli sauce and the “lubina” catch, which we called sea bass, served with salad and potatoes.
to digest the immense dinner we set off towards the historic center of Ibiza, Dalt Vila
