Es war der absolute Hammer! Was für ein toller Tag! Formentera ist wunderschön, die Insel muss man besuchen. 5 Stunden sind auch eine angemessene Dauer auf der Insel. Die Bootstour war die perfekte Ergänzung und der perfekte Tagesabschluss. Die Musik war traumhaft und das Essen wirklich lecker. Die Stimmung beim Sonnenuntergang war einfach magisch. Ich hab richtig viele tolle Bilder auf dem Bett gemacht und super tolle Leute kennengelernt. Einfach unvergesslich. Ach ja... und das Boot ist wie eine große Yacht! Wow!

A dream! How beautiful is Formentera please? And how beautiful is this boat? I was amazed all day haha. The food, the drinks, Formentera, the boat, the sunset... It's rare to have so many great moments in one day. I loved it so much I would even do it again.
