Backpack and Stories –
So imagine this – Ibiza is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea with a population of – 132,367 but approximately 6 Million tourists visit this place every year.
During the peak season, this place is really expensive. Here’s what I would suggest – Book an Airbnb apartment outside the Ibiza City. It’s much more peaceful and very nicely connected to the main areas. Trust me after partying all night long you don’t want to hear people screaming on the streets during the daytime.
I was staying in St. Eulalia a small town located on the east coast of the island and very popular amongst families going to Ibiza.
The life during the day time is slow paced as compared to the main city. If like me, you like talking to locals as well and learn about their way of living then St Eulalia is your best bet. It’s less chaotic and people have time to sit down and have conversations.
This story is about Janet, a local lady I met in St Eulalia. She was our house help and a really energetic personality.
It was 4 pm and we were still passed out from our previous night’s adventure. There was someone at the door constantly ringing the bell. No one wanted to get up so eventually, I got out of my cosy bed and crawled towards the door. After waking up I realised that I slept with my sunglasses on.
She came in and started cleaning the room. I kept saying sorry for the mess. I felt really bad and I offered her some juice. We got talking and she told me something that I was not expecting at all.
“Are you from India? I love Shahrukh khan!” – She said. Before I could react she took out her phone and started playing Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham title track. What a moment that was! We danced to that song for a while; me and my friends invited her to have lunch with us and we went back to sleep. We’re still in touch and her love for India is growing ever since.\
