Ibiza: 2008

In 2000 (before I had a digital camera – (insert chuckle) we had a lovely holiday on Ibiza.  (God that was long ago).  Then in 2007, eight years ago , we were very lucky to have holidays on Ibiza.  Nils and I flew from Boston.  At the time I was about 3-4 months pregnant.  Aer Lingus “lost” my bag in Barelona and I was without clothes for a few days.   Fast forward the next summer, 2008, we returned and this time with Soren who was 6 months old.  It was our first time meeting, Mark my brother-in-law.

All my old photos are on my old laptop (I think) but I did have these posted on my facebook page so I was getting a bit of a chuckle with these.  Soren was so cute (well still is, but look at that baby face!!)  Nils and I look a bit younger (or at least I think so) and even a bit thinner ;)!  I’m going to see if  I can dig up any more photos.












We took a day trip to Formentera where we rented mopes, ate yummy food and swam in the sea.



It was a lot of fun then but I’m very excited to return with Soren now that he is 7 and Maebh at 5.   They’re very much looking forward to spending time there and exploring the island.  So many new things to check out (and some old favorites).

I envision we’ll avoid the entire San Antonio area but visit other family friendly (yet still a bit built up) areas like Santa Eularia.   They have a long, tree-lined promenade and some boat charters.  I think the kids would enjoy a glass bottom boat trip out of Es Canar.  Yesterday Soren was telling me about a Banana Boat ride – but clearly a bit to young for that now.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
