TimTravels - Sa Calobra

6 days ago

Hello and welcome my Steemian friends to a new episode of TimTravels!

As you know I am currently in Spain and enjoy the fantastic weather, idyllic beaches and great Spanish cuisine which is known for its paella, tortilla and much more. Today we will make a litlle journey to Sa Calobra, a breathtaking mountain gorge in the north of Mallorca.

Since Mallorca is a small island we had a short drive from the south cost to the north. It takes you one and half hour to get from one side of the island to the other. On Crete it would take you 5 hours from east to west.

Standing between these walls of rock I felt small. The deeper we went into the gorge the less people we saw. We hiked for approximatily two hours and saw many waterfalls, caves and animals. Of all the animals I saw there was one I enjoyed the most. You will see it later!

Some people would perceive this incredible place as boring since there is nothing but rocks, stones and some plants.

I however could stay here for days probably. Nothing but raw nature, untouched by us humans. Climbing the walls, watch the water fall, swim in the ocean. The list is endless.

And here we see my new friend, steemy turtle! He was next to me and had lunch. Usually they tend to be retiring but this one came very close to me.

I hope you enjoyed this episode of TimTravels. Leave a comment and tell us where your next travel destination will be and what you will do.

Great post and awesome photography. Well done!

A wonderful and beautiful place in Spain in the splendor of my greetings to the Spaniards

Great photography of looking place. :) thanks for your posting
have a nice day.

Great pictures. Beautiful scenery.

Thanks for the great post

Amazing place 👍

Beautiful gorges and mountains. I can't help but think about Hemingway again as I check out your photos of the rugged Spanish countryside.
“Dying was nothing and he had no picture of it nor fear of it in his mind. But living was a field of grain blowing in the wind on the side of a hill. Living was a hawk in the sky. Living was an earthen jar of water in the dust of the threshing with the grain flailed out and the chaff blowing. Living was a horse between your legs and a carbine under one leg and a hill and a valley and a stream with trees along it and the far side of the valley and the hills beyond.”
― Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

I would love if that turtle was on Steemit. I would follow & Retweet him everyday !

Beautifull & Nice Collections

These are nice exotic geologies! I have an important undertaking to discuss with you. Please contact me via discord: Ghost Push#2095

You have an insight into the landscapes of Spain and are full of beautiful areas

This place is unbelievable, purely nature.
I believe there is a lot of living creature there.
Very nice photo , upvoted.

Yes! I was looking forward to this one. Beautiful photos and that's a nice little lunch-time buddy there.

Really nice and quality photos. What camera do you have? If that's not a secret of course. :D

i'm sure i'm not the only one who reads time travels first.

I like. Very nice photographys. Where I live there are good landscapes too. My post of yerterday speaks on it. You can check it

you left the mark with the tower of rocks. in the future will remain

very beautiful pictures! beautiful turtle!

I am fan of your photography. You show your talent man every time you post your shots.Seriously amazing

This is a gorgeous place. Dreamy. Thank you for your share.

Very beautiful photography

Awesome pictures! Looking forward to make Spain one of my future places to visit.

nice place

Wonderful photos and I liked the accompanying story! 😊

great photography..

you may like also mine.

Amazing photos!

Lovely place and well photographed. I've been to Mallorca in the past and I imagine not many visitors see the place you mention as it's away from the usual tourist destination spots. Love the little tortoise. Pity tourists don't get there as it is remarkable. I have no immediate travel plans, my trips get fewer these days, but I enjoy reading other people's and yours, as I am following. Happy Steeming!

Nothing but raw Nature,untouched by us humans.

I love this , I could stay there as well and enjoy the cool breeze free of pollution and bio-gas. Nature is really amazing.

Cool and neat images. I like your little buddy as well.

Perhaps for me, the cliffs and the sea is the most powerful combination that touches the deepest corners of the soul. Maybe it is because both these phenomena are eternal, in comparison with the duration of human life. We are constantly trying to conquer them, at the same time bow before them greatness.

Thank you for this post, it gave me a lot of harmony today.

Looks like somebody is having pure, natural fun!! Oh! I feel so jealous right now...
The past summer I've visited so many lakes and rivers in my area and you reminded of those little getaways.
I hope you have a wonderful time in Spain! Don't leave it until your eyes can't get any more of this beauty! :)

Awesome and nice photo

Never heard of this place, but seems fantastic!

Very envious!

Amazing pictures! Fairytail! I wish I could be there!

Every time I hear Spain, I'm reminded of my favorite player Nadal. And as luck has it, you are in his home island of Mallorca. Did you happen to visit Manacor as well?
I'd love to visit there one day, but for now I'm planning a trip to Mumbai for a friend's wedding next month. Hope things work out, getting a day off from work is a tedious process.

Such a wonderful place to visit when you have the time and the money to spend.

nice post

Mind blowing views @timsaid !

you have catched the most beautiful pictures i love most ,THE NATURE .
looking forward to all your post to look the clicks like this.
best of look to your travel ..have a good day

Amazing @timsaid. Let's walk to see your name in my photography post.

the nature seems quite untouched in this photos. i wouldn't have expected this from mallorca. and the faces in the stones. is somebody else seeing the life inside the rocks?

and the answer to your question would be IRAN. i want to go to iran :) or south america, chile, costarica, something similar :) have you ever been?

Amazing photos, that looks so nice! Not boring at all, raw beautiful nature at it's best. Our next travel destination will be here somewhere in New Zealand, as soon as we can roll out our tiny house on wheels on the road. Can't wait to spend days in the spectacular nature of these islands.

Interesting post @timsaid
There is a beauty of art on the object image

Wao, awesome shots.
For a moment i started dreaming of being there :)

You've got beautiful photos. congratulations. I like most turtle photographs. Because I am a fan of ninja turtles.

Nice nice nice content ;)

OMG You traveled in a very beautiful place. Pictures are fantastic

wow i like nature,,,i also find some place here in portugal it seems like timsaid pics post are all stone . North Part of portugal in Sera Estrela.. before you reach on top you need to cross in between all stone , a live stone...

Loving the cave picture! Congrats! Even for the others! :)

Wow!!!...... That's a wonderful sight seeing, "Nature" has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion because the source of man's unhappiness is his ignorance of Nature. Am a Nigerian but a trip to mountain gorge in the north of Mallorca will be a good life accomplishment, yeah... I can't wait to feel, touch and interact with the nature for if u "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves"...I love Nature.

Something very beautiful, well done, my friend
A wonderful view shows the simplicity and beauty of nature
Well done

this rocky one has a spectacular view. I am almost magnified by the radiant and clear stones. It is not that difficult to understand that people want to see it here....

Fabulous untouched place with a bonus turtle lunch buddy :) Perfect place for soul serching


Superb photos @timsaid. Great rock formations. It does not look too touristy either, which is good. Always nice to go somewhere that is not so crowded.

Rocks and rock formation may look boring but they are one great subject for photography! Great shots!!!

i like reading your post @timsaid, keep it up. Spain worth traveling to!

fascinating I would love one day to be able to visit this wonderful place in mallorca @timsaid Thanks for sharing it with us

Is it open for the public?? So beautiful. A good place to destress

I love travel. It's the most mind-broadening thing one can do. Maybe doctors should recommend travel and experiencing nature as prescriptions for mood disorders!

So Nice and Cool Stuff @timsaid

Wow, nice place. Looks like a Skyrim place, totally want to travel there!! I could stay there for days too. Great post, hope one day I could travel as you do!! And by the way, Did you know that those rocks over others means that "You are going for the good way"

Wow its supercool places i love spain and i like to see more like this t

Excellent stuff~ Untouched and crude. Nature at its best!

you are true, someone could feel bored where the landscape only seems to offer stone, but stones are perfection of the nature during the thousands of years of shaping.. I feel very relaxed when it comes to mountains and rocky landscapes.

Your article is very nice and i like how you describe your journeys.

What really great photos showing an area of the world where most of us will never go!
Very unusual looking rocks, different colours and patterns.
I'm not sure where I will travel next, but I have a yearning to visit a tropical island with white sand, clear seas and blue skies, and not too many people! :)

Nice. Was there a quest giver over there? Haha.

I love your photography. it captured beautifully and the texture of the rock are very fine. So good! keep it up.

@timsaid, beautiful scenery in spain, i can only enjoy the picture.

Despite the lack of bright colors this beautiful landscape. Rocks and water a great spectacle for relaxation and liberation of the mind from unnecessary worries. I admire travelers. This is a great way to live life. Enjoyment of new knowledge, new views and impressions. The opportunity to go through the main path - the path to himself.

You really incouraged me to go and see spain.
nice pictures.

By watching the photographs it does feels like i wanna be there buddy .
Nicely taken images :)

Love the mountains
