Some classic my mother moments.... "I never called you fat even when you were fat". On my wedding day.... "did you put weight on I'm not sure I can get this to fasten". Last Friday..."you know just looking at you recently did you gain a little weight"... So back to land of paranoia and getting weighed every day, gee thanks mum!!! Oh yeah and you expect to wear a bikini on this hell like holiday??? nope long shorts, rucksack, camera and I'm off a-wandering, I'll be back when I get back.

I found some good guidebooks for your needs on amazon.co.uk

- The Rough Guide to Mallorca and Menorca (Rough Guide Travel Guides) by Phil Lee (Paperback - 27 May 2004)
- Walk! Mallorca: North and Mountains by Charles Davis
- Mallorca North and Mountains Tour and Trail Super-durable Map (Discovery Walking Guides) by David Brawn and Ros Brawn
- Walking in Mallorca (Cicerone Guide) by June Parker and Paddy Dillon

Maybe you could simply go to a bookstore and check out the Mallorca guidebooks there. I like to browse so that I can see whether a guidebook truly has the information I need.

I've never been to Mallorca but I got told that the inside of the island is very beautiful.

BTW, when a family trip to Mallorca threatened my sanity, I smiled and nodded yes to everything. Of course I would go with my mother! No need to worry and do not book early as we would be getting everything last minute much cheaper! Then, 20 days before the holiday of doom, I hopped onto a plane to Israel for a summer semester abroad. I called my mother from the airport. Bye bye mum!

I've never been there but I've seen Mallorca on two separate travel shows and it looks absolutely amazing! It seems perfect for picture taking. You can talk walk on the mountain paths or hang at a rocky beach. There's plenty more there to do and Palma looks pretty sweet :)

Yeah, mine has a thing about weight too.
U dont think, we will turn out like our mothers, do u? If one finds a person irritating, isnt it a sign, that one is like that person. I really hate whoever came up, with that theory.;)

That reminds me of my mother's uplifting "so-and-so just got married at 37 so there's hope for you!" speach from a few years back.
