Dear Sir, JUST returned from another week in Puerto Pollensa 1421 June. I read on the letters page of The Bulletin a lady complaining about the increased prices and the speed of motorcycles/scooters, and would comment as follows:
If you were there immediately before the introduction of the Euro and again just after, as we were, you would know that the majority of the price rises were solely down to that, and for those of you old enough, exactly the same thing occurred in Britain when decimalisation was introduced and will happen again if the Euro is voted in in this country be warned! The same thing has occurred in every European country that has adopted the Euro as its currency, in spite of promises made to the contrary.
Yes there is a speed limit along the front at Puerto Pollensa and has been for sometime, but they ignore it, as they do crash helmet regulations. No big surprise there then, but what does surprise me is the lady's attitude. After all, she lives in Britain not on Mars and I can assure you her point about the scooters in Puerto Pollensa pales into insignificance with what's going on in this country, so can I assume she is writing non stop to English newspapers? After all the whinging, I am surprised that she goes on to say she'll be back again why bother? As a long standing visitor to Puerto Pollensa, I can assure you that for everyone that doesn't come back there are a dozen to take your place. All the talk about tourist problems in Majorca, it certainly doesn't apply to PP and if you doubt me, have a chat with the local bar/restaurant owners and they will put you straight. Been there in April and June and back again in September eat your heart out! Terry Curtis
