I first visited Menorca in 1981/2, drawn initially by its archaeological heritage, but soon discovered what a gem it is - no noisy party folk or resorts with strips of nightclubs and row upon row of sunbeds lined up along the seafront. After a short break in visits during the late 1980s/early 90s when I was travelling further afield my family and I returned to the island and have now been visiting Menorca once or twice a year ever since and I love the fact that the island is still so peaceful and generally unspoiled and that there is so much to see if you get out of the resorts and go exploring .
My other favourite places to visit are Egypt and the area around Pompeii in Italy as I enjoy visiting ancient sites and ruins of all kinds. I love all things Spanish and am trying to learn the language but could do with more practice!
