Last month we teamed up with On The Beach to host a fantastic contest called Balearics Blitz: 24 hours on The Balearics.

We asked contestants to write a blog post detailing what they would do with 24 hours on a Spanish Island in the Balearics. With islands such as Majorca, Mallorca and Ibiza to pick from, the entries ran the gamut and were full of inspiration, adventure, foodie delights, clubbing and island hopping.

It was really tough to pick the winner, but we fell in love with the humorous minute by minute post written by Susan Shain of Travel Junkette!

With lines like…

“He is tall, with tousled dark hair and a tanned physique. (I will tryyyy not to get too carried away here.) Javier, as I learn he is called, is from Menorca and is NOT a serial killer. He offers me a ride to my hotel. Since I know he is not a serial killer, I accept…Drink in hand. Poolside chair claimed. Cool ocean breeze, warm sun… and hot Spaniard?  Check.”

…it was hard not to fall for this story. So congratulations Susan, you are the winner of the 500 GBP of Amazon gift certificates. Your post was awesome and had us laughing out loud. Keep up the good work and have fun shopping on Amazon.

To read her full post (and I highly suggest you do) visit Travel Junkette. She’s got a great sense of humor, and I guarantee you’ll get hooked on her stories.

Thanks again to everyone who participated! We really enjoyed reading all of your stories. And thanks to OnTheBeach.co.uk, for putting together this fabulous competition.
