A trip to Palma on the bus, experimenting for the day when it will be too expensive to drive the car. Soller buses are in good shape at present with a new fleet and an increased timetable. It is no hardship to use this service if your destination is the centre of Palma.
My walking route was ‘right’ out of the bus station and the main road until I branched off right into the Calle Blanquerna.
This is a favourite area for a wander for me:1620041926748,, full of odd shops, cafes and restaurants. In my time here the through route has been paved and it is a giant pedestrianised area leading up to the Escorxador district. This is all in the North of Palma and crosses the Bons Aires Barrio. This is a hugely populated area full of apartments and new build which took all this land from farmland, plus the slaughter house, back in the day. We all love the cinemas at Escorxador and look forward to re – opening of the fabulous Street food market.
My ‘Nan’s Day Out’ was there because I was meeting other Nan’s who were telling me of the high accolade this area has received. It has been awarded the status of being one of the first ‘Compassionate Communities’ in the Balearics.RELATED: Street vendors are essential workers. Where are our rights? | View
