Last week I had my SRPRS.me-travel I told you about in this post! The week before I were going to leave, I got to know the weather (so I thought I knew what to pack for my city trip – little did I know). My parents brought me to the airport because I’d like to have some company when I was going to find out what my destination would be. So after one and a half week staring at my ‘secret envelope’ I could FINALLY open it. And there it was: Ibiza. I think I was in shock at first because, well, I didn’t see that one coming. Not. At. All. Because of the weather forecast I was thinking about Barcelona or Nice, not Ibiza. So this was definitely a surprise! A reaaally good surprise!
And then it started… I’ve been on my own in an airplane before so that didn’t scare me, but the part that I had to get from the airport to my hostel all by myself did kinda scare me. On the hostels website I read which bus I should take and that I should get out after the big McDonalds roundabout. So I kept searching for the McDonalds but did not see any big yellow M. After a while I had this feeling something wasn’t right. And indeed. Turned out the very first stop in Ibiza Town was the stop I had to get out and the bus was already on it’s way back to the airport once I figured out. So I just jumped out of the bus at the next stop and had to walk for 30 minutes. Thank God for Google Maps.
After I had found the hostel, a new adventure started: getting to know people. Since this was the first time I stayed in a hostel, this was a really big step for me. Like, do you have to walk up to people and just say ‘hey, I’m Eva, what are you doing?’, I don’t think so. But when I was making my bed, an American girl came in and she asked me if I wanted to join her and her friend for a drink in the city. Well, that was easy! And when we got back, the dorm was full of people (mainly guys) (drunk guys). A few of them had the plan to go to another island the next day and they tried to convince me to come with them. I was surprised by how easy it was to make new friends and go on adventure!
So on Tuesday we went to the island, Formentera. We rented a car and had a little roadtrip. I enjoyed spending time with these people and it was amazing just looking out of the window and seeing the nature around us. Funny story: when we wanted to rent a car, they asked for a credit card. Since no-one wanted to leave theirs behind, Paul gave his travel card. The man behind the desk didn’t notice so he wrote the numbers down, and after that he wrote ‘mister Prepaid Travel Card‘ as name. We had a lot of fun about that.
The island was beautiful. We went to an incredibly beautiful beach where we had a picknick and had a swim. Well, they had a swim, I didn’t. Why not me? Well, I just didn’t pack a bikini since I expected to go on a citytrip and not somewhere near a beach. So I just enjoyed the sun and talked to Paul and went for a walk with Casell. (Too bad we decided to walk on bare feet whilst there were a lot of rocks. My feet didn’t like me that much at that time, haha!)
It was a lovely day on the island and I’ve done so many other things after that, but since this blogpost is starting to get really long (and since I really have to get to homework right now), I’m going to tell you about the rest of my trip another time! Hope you enjoyed reading 🙂 (EDIT: you can read about the rest of the trip in this blogpost.)
