When I first traveled to Cala Rajada on Mallorca as a package tourist with my parents and siblings in 1974, I would never have thought that this vacation would mark the beginning of a lifelong love affair with the island. Our first home was a quaint hotel hidden behind a dense pine forest on Cala Guya. The atmosphere was simply magical - the salty scent of the Mediterranean wafting through the air and the gentle sound of the waves rolling onto the sandy beach are deeply engraved in my memory.

In the years that followed, my family and I spent more summer vacations in Cala Rajada and Cala Millor, and my love for Mallorca continued to deepen. But then almost 20 years passed before I booked a flight to Mallorca again in 1998 - this time for a week between Christmas and New Year to vacation on a finca.

I had already been working in the tourism industry for 16 years, had my own travel company and a travel agency in Lüneburg. This gave me the opportunity to travel to many parts of the world. In the process, I (almost) lost sight of my childhood and youthful love, Mallorca.

This changed when a customer regularly booked flights to Mallorca through our travel agency and told me about his finca construction project near Santanyí - high on a hill with breathtaking views as far as the sea. He suggested that I could also offer the finca for rent as a tour operator. When he finally showed me the first photos of the finished finca, I was absolutely thrilled. It wasn't long before I saw it for myself and spent my New Year's Eve vacation on the island just a few months later.

My old love for Mallorca was rekindled by my trip to the enchanting finca and the then still tranquil village of Santanyi. Since then, I have returned to the island regularly every year. In 2007, I laid the foundation stone for today's isla Travel by renting a house in Es Llombards on a long-term basis and started working as a tour operator for corporate events, events & incentives and finca rentals.

Until 2018, I regularly commuted between Germany and Mallorca, both privately and professionally. Then I made the final decision to move to the island completely. Today, I live in Cala Figuera with my wife and our daughter and we enjoy every day in our paradise!
