Photographic Highlights: My Trip To Menorca

Photographs by Will Taylor
Recently I took the short trip (two hours) by plane from London to the small, exotic and utterly charming Balearic isle of Menorca. I had visited once before on a family holiday when I was much younger but this was my first adult trip to the island, which is situated off the coast of mainland Spain. Today I'm sharing some of my inspirations from the trip (seriously, this place is awash with saturated colours - heaven for an addict like me!) which include the peeling, weathered walls of old town Ciutadella, the azure, turquoise blue lagoons and the vibrant, ever-present bougainvillea. We spent mornings snorkeling, afternoons exploring vineyards, learning about how to care for vines and, of course, sampling some of the island's finest wines, before enjoying late suppers by the sea and moonlight walks at midnight. Inspiring and relaxing, it's wonderful how a change in culture can refresh the mind. Has a change in culture inspired you recently?

  10. Such beautiful photography! Having been on many a family holiday to Menorca when I was younger I can definitely agree about how gorgeous it is (Ciutadella is wonderful, as is the gorgeous horseshoe bay beach resort of Cala Galdana where we often stayed). You've made me want to go back now!
