That is how it usually sounds. But for me it´s has just begun.
Little more than a week has past sins I came to the island, for my first season-job.
The first days was a little like a weekend, I just walked around and explored the city of Palma to get to know me new homecity. Wich abruptly ended after a meeting with my new boss.
Sins the meeting, besides from the obvious paper and mailwork, I have explored the island, and especially it´s GR-rout, wich is numbered 221, and is one of many hikingrouts thru out Europe, associated with GR- (Grand randonnée)
Every day I´ve had a new rout or part of the GR221 to explore, and are going to have until the first of April, when the first guest are comming, that I am going to guide along the GR.
At first I thought that mallorca would be a quite flat island, sure some hills you´ve seen when going with the bus to different places bur nothing dramatic.
This was a picture from when I first went to the island for holiday with my family as a kid.
But after this week I can contradict this with the opposite.
After hiking up and down thru woods, hills, and passages where it nearly would be nessesery to use climbinggear or at least have a climbingrope and harness with you, just in case. I´m soon ready to take out our first guests and my first guided group, as a certified mountaineerguide.
This last week has more or less consisted of getting up and down ”mountains”, or more big hills if you comparing with the mountains in Nepal.
Now I hope for some quite time and that the last day of reconnaissance going to be quick and peacefull so I can use the time to plan out and go thru the layout for the first guest tour, wich comes on saturday.
Finish off with some topview pics from this week.
