Here it is, my first actual bucket list post. Thanks for all the positive reactions I’ve been getting so far. It’s nice to know that people actually read my posts haha. Enjoy reading! xx
Adding this to my bucket list is kinda cheating since I went before I even started my blog. However going to Ibiza was already on my ‘imaginary bucket list’ so I figured, why not?
This summer I wanted to go on vacation so bad but I couldn’t find anyone to go with me. When I was finally about to give up, one of my friends came back from Australia. I asked her, kinda joking, if she wanted to come with me. I mean how could she? She just came back from a month-long trip to Australia. She wouldn’t have any money, time or she just wouldn’t feel like it. You probably understand that I was very surprised when I got a serious “yes”. Wait what? We’re actually going? So a week later we booked our trip to Ibiza and another two weeks later we were enjoying our cocktails next to the pool.
We wanted to have a vacation in the sun where we could come to rest. Maybe do a little bit of sightseeing and go out only a few times. I must admit that I’m proud of us for sticking to the plan and that we didn’t stay at the hotel the entire week. I think I can speak for the both of us when I say that our trip to Formentera is one of the highlights. (Which is not even Ibiza but another island.) We went there by boat and then rented a scooter on the island. The fact we just went without knowing where we were gonna end up was the best part. We just drove across the island until we found a beach. Which was beautiful by the way. (It’s where the picture above my post was taken.) We stayed there for a while and then we drove a little further until we found the salt flats. I had never seen water that looked pink before so that was quite an experience.
Other things I enjoyed:
First of all, good company:
I mean it’s nice to have someone with you who has the same plan. If one person wants to go out every single night and the other person wants to be adventurous and productive, it’s not gonna work. I’m so glad we both wanted the same thing.
The hippy market:
There are two different ones. One on Wednesday and one on Saturday ; we went on a Wednesday. That one is in Es Caná, the other one is in Las Dalias. It’s just something you have to go to when you’re in Ibiza. The atmosphere is just great and there are so many cute little stands.
Eivissa (Ibiza city):
You definitely need to visit Eivissa at night at least once. There’s an old part of the city that goes uphill. It’s like it’s own little town with narrow streets and nice little restaurants. You have an amazing view of the city as well which is stunning at night when you get t see all the lights.
Playa d’en Bossa:
This is like the centre of Ibiza’s night life. It’s where you’ll find most of the clubs. If you’re going to Ibiza to go out every night, I’d advice you to safe up a lot of money. You often pay €50-60 to get in to a club. That’s just to get in because as soon as you’re inside you pay €8 to just get a water. Ushuaïa is an open air club that’s located around a hotel pool. It’s kinda a must to go there. They have quite a couple of famous artists and it just has an amazing vibe. Just keep in mind that it ends at midnight. We didn’t know so we showed up a little late. (And then you pay like €55 for only two hours.)
Obviously we also spent quite some time at the hotel. We had to make sure that we got a nice tan and laying next to the pool in an all inclusive hotel isn’t the worst thing in the world. Overall this was such a great week and I wouldn’t mind going back next year! If you want some more visuals, take a look at my youtube video.
