Today, three of my girlfriends and I hopped on a ferry to Ibiza, Spain, one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea by Mallorca and Menorca.
Along with Formentera, it’s one of the two Pine Islands.
The name Ibiza is derived from the original Arabic word “Yabisah” meaning “land” or “landward.” Eivissa is the official name in Catalan.
The island was founded in 654 BC by Phoenician settlers, and is now famous for huge, crazy, PACKED summer parties and raves.
We arrived real late tonight, so the girls and I decided to call it a day, stay in and begin with the festivities manana.
We had our own lil’ party at home in our sweet beach-front apartment tonight.
Tomorrow, let the games begin!
