Thank you for this. Sounds very interesting!

And as for Mallorca, that used to be known as the Island of Calm, or "L'Illa de la Calma". A Catalan poet called Santiago Rusinyol, who died in 1931, wrote a book with that title about Mallorca. It is still hugely popular there.

And Deya, on the north-west Tramuntana coast has long been a very popular hangout for artists too. The British historian and author Robert Graves lived there for most of his life and there's a museum there dedicated to his memory, which was set up together with his family. Robert Graves, in case you don't know, wrote for example "I, Claudius", which was made into a great BBC TV series starring Derek Jacobi as the emperor. Did you know "claudicare" is Latin for limping? And Claudius had a deformation that caused him to limp.

'It's two days' hike from the nearest airport. There's no parking, even if you could reach it by car.

The Irish Pub in Namche Bazaar, Nepal warrants a place in the Guinness Book of Records - if not for being the 'most remote' than the 'highest' Irish bar in the world. At 3500 above sea level, the bar serves the route for mountaineers on the way to – and from – Everest.
