I was relieved to leave behind the grey shades of London in exhange for the beautiful island of Mallorca for Gerry’s 50 shades of blue birthday in June! I got the ‘save the date’ almost a year in advance. There were no excuses for me to not be there- despite my own shades of feeling blue which were soon a distant memory once I arrived!
The dress code, ‘Burning Man’, was an ingenious idea, bringing out the free-spiritedness in Gerry’s elite crowd of friends. We came together as one to celebrate the milestone birthday of an extraordinary person… There was no where in the world I would rather have been that night!!
I booked my accommodation using Airbnb- the online accommodation site to stay with locals. Ironically this is how I met Gerry over three years ago! I couldn’t have asked for a better local experience in Palma than with my Spanish host Alumudena. We instantly connected the moment I walked through her door. I arrived as a stranger and left as a friend!… The beauty of using Airbnb!
