Interesting facts about Ibiza

The Greeks called Ibiza and Formentera the Islas Pitiusas (Islands of Pine Trees). Alongside the hardy pines, the most common crops are olives, figs and almonds. Perhaps surprisingly, about half the island  remains covered by thick woods. Indeed, driving around the back roads of the north is to plunge into a rural idyll – not what one associates with Ibiza at all!

Ibiza’s beaches and laid-back attitude first became a major drawcard in the flower-power heyday of the 1960s – while North America’s hippies were ‘California dreaming’, their Euro‑pean counterparts were heading here to tune in, turn on and drop out. It’s hard to believe that in 1956 the island boasted only 12 cars!

The outputs I will be using are:

USB – for the Kindle, Android phone (which doubles at my digital music player and is loaded with music, audio-books and pod-casts) My rear light which, quite unusually, has a lithium-ion battery and has a standard USB connector for charging and my Garmin 310XT which I take as a backup to paper maps and has some very interesting and obscure routes installed that are absent from my roughly 250,000:1 ratio touring maps.
