Blue is my favorite color

I saved the best for last.

The underwater world took me by surprise. I didn’t expect to see it so colorful, alive, brimming with energy , especially in a confined space. Palma (Mallorca)’s aquarium blew me away!  It was a zoo, an aquarium and a museum in the same time, magnificent.

I admit: I was absolutely fascinated with the beautifully organized aquarium – all 3D walls, amazing tanks and soothing music…

… when I reached an extraordinary outdoor garden.

The Gardens included ponds and small waterfalls with koi fish and turtles, beautiful flowers and exotic trees. It was a pleasure to walk around the rocky labyrinth, listening to nature’s sounds, coming from a… – wait for it, wait for it – stone-like speakers!!!. Just hidden between the trees. Fancy, huh?

When I was just thinking that I couldn’t get more excited from the view, I met the Jungle. A rainforest duplicate, the jungle welcomed us with a soft, wet, crunchy ground, where wood just melted beneath our feet, a beautiful waterfall, exotic flowers, Ara parrots, poisonous frogs and other Amazonian wonders.

At the end of the 900 m journey, the deepest shark tank in Europe – 8.5 metres deep – awaited. The Big Blue was every bit as mesmerizing as I thought it would be. Menacing teeth, curious eyes and slow tail movements could be seen everywhere. The mysterious predators werewatching us closely. As we watched them.
