Update to: Scuba Diving and PADI clubs in Cala d'Or

Since my original blog posting back in 2012 "Scuba Diving and PADI clubs in Cala d'Or", the 3 Scuba Diving sites and links I gave have been taken down or replaced with new.

So I will update the links with a new list of useful Scuba websites for the island of Mallorca.

Here's a new link to the "Association of Mallorca Dive Centres":

Also a few more links that may be of interest:

I hope these help you check out and make some pre-holiday plans and arrangements.

Well done Ryanair - seriously :-)

From 1 December 2013 Ryanair passengers have been allowed to carry on a second, small bag as hand luggage.

The additional bag can be a maximum size 35cm x 20cm x 20cm (but check latest rules before relying on this information), this can be for laptop, a ladies handbag, camera bag, or a duty-free carrier bag, and this is addition to your main hand luggage bag.

Also, possibly to address the overcrowded overhead storage space, Ryanair have introduced a system to take some of the hand luggage from passengers at the gate and place them in the hold -free-, so be prepared to keep things needed on the plane in a convenient easy to access place in your luggage.

So, surprisingly Ryanair have stepped out ahead of their competition on a very positive way.

Good on you Ryanair.

Other changes in a good direction relate to some of their charges:
  -  Boarding pass re-issue at check-in reduced to £15.
  -  Charges for checked-in bags that have not been prepaid reduced to £50.
Bad things:
  -  Can't check-in more than 7 days & 2 hours before flight, this means if you are away for more
     than 1 week you have to pay for advanced check-in, or print your boarding pass while away,
     this may mean paying an Internet café to do it for you!

Roaming Mobile Charges !

Afraid of using your phone in Europe?
Received a shock bill on returning from holiday?

   -   EU Plans to scrap mobile roaming charges!

   -   High charges could end as soon as July 2014.


Votes by EU commissioners went in favour of fast tracking major reforms of telecoms regulations covering mobile roaming charges across the EU.

Details of the reforms are still being discussed, but the commissioners have committed to pushing changes through in time for the European elections in May next year.

The plan is to make charges across the European Union for Phone calls, Texts, and Internet the same as using your phone in the UK.

See a more thorough story from "Which?":-
