TimTravels - Sa Calobra

in photography •  8 months 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.

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! :)

Great post and awesome photography. Well done!

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.

Fantastic Spain! Love how the rocks form!

Mind blowing views @timsaid !
Beautiful places !

wow very very awsome photos and good enjoy the travel 💕

very beautiful scenery

Beautiful pictures, specially the first one! I would love to be there now.

Thanks for the great post

really beautiful! This gives a new light to Mallorca as in Germany it is famous for the "Ballermann" so I never considered to go there. But this makes me change my mind! Thank you!

my dream job:) thank you for sharing.

That's really incredible great experience you had so nice to see :)

Am jealous right now. Hope to be in your place.
Nice picture and it was fun reading your article bro.
Keep it up

Amazing .....miracle...

Love the mountains

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

Amazing picture, good content, Welcome to Bangladesh. waiting for you...

What a beautiful place to visit! I love the photo of the stacking rocks. Did you do this yourself?

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

What a spectacular place! Staying in less crowded places yet full of gems of nature will truly give you a peace of mind.thank you for sharing your travel story.

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

Great place... loved the pictures..!
