The worst advice ever! - Today News Post News Post || Euro News:

I was asked in the end of the summer what the weather is like in November in Mallorca by a family who was thinking of leaving the dark north for a couple of winter months in Mallorca. I gave them the worse advice ever. You see even if Sweden is dark in the winter months, at least the houses are warm and cosy.

I sent them a Google search of average weather for the island in November, that stated 14-19 degrees and an average 59 mm rain and told them to book their flights. November on the island is sunny and nice I told them. Let’s just say 2021 is not an average year. Twenty-two years on the island and after a nice and warm summer you do forget quickly how bad the weather can get here.

Winter in Mallorca can be absolutely amazing and totally terrible too. It all depends on your expectations and your budget. It’s been harder for some people than for others, as a large part of the expat community lives in the Mallorcan countryside in humble houses where many times does not put up with several days of rainProvinces reporting 240,000 new vaccinations administered; China says 200 million citizens have been vaccinated. Friends of mine bought a town house in the village and where surprised that the front door that have been OK suddenly let the water from the street throw like a sieve.

As the rain kept falling down and we collected 120 mm in less than 12 hours our bored dogs sat on the terrace and stared at the water coming down. Every time we let them in, they went direct for the food bowl to eat more. But then my kids came home, and I just realised the whole family had the same behaviour. In week two of Skyfall I said to my partner, let’s get the cook books out. Straight in and to the fridge. I decided to leave the house and signed up for a new coworking place in Palma called Moasis. My goal was to have a dry and warm office morning and I really loved it.
