Minorca / Picture of the Week

Minorcan Gate – 25/17

Traditional Minorcan Gate

When I show this picture to people, their reaction is usually “that’s so beautiful” or “that’s so romantic”. Yes, it is but it is also so perfectly normal in Minorca. No, I don’t mean that everything is beautiful and romantic but this kind of gate is normal. The slightly bendy shape of the gate is the traditional Minorcan gate style. We’ve been to Minorca twice now and have seen a fair bit of the island but one thing I haven’t seen is a straight wooden gate. If you like hiking and explore the countryside you’ll find plenty of these gates. Some well looked after and in a good condition. Some even bendier.

This gate is close to Santo Tomas where the footpath from Es Migjorn Gran joins the coastal Cami de Caval.

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
