Just a few general Ibiza observations from last week whilst they are still fresh in my head.........



  • first time I’ve flown to Ibiza at the end of August from Newcastle. Majority of the flight were older people in the 40-50 age bracket. Quite a few big groups of stags/hens. They were all really rowdy! And some still off their nut from the night before (07:20 flight) Was actually quite a good laugh. A bloke got lifted by the security staff when we landed in Ibiza though. That certainly made us all pipe down a bit. Don’t know what happened to him, fined maybe?
  • Does anyone actually go to Es Paradis anymore? Was in a massive que to get into Defected in Eden and Es Paradis was literally dead. Saw a couple of people walk in and then walk straight back out looking very bemused. As if they’d just walked in on a midget porn movie set or something.
  • Saw that Simon Dunmore bloke outside Eden on his phone. Couldn't think of anything funny to shout at him.
  • Met quite a few people doing solo trips this year. Most random one was a Libyan bloke that actually lives in Miami. All the time he was talking to me I just wanted to shout ‘terrorist’. Another one was a Serbian bloke I bumped into in Eden. Dressed all in black I thought he was security as he was built like a brick shithouse. Turns out to be an ex boxer, showed me videos of him knocking people out in the ring back in the day. Really nice bloke though, has 3 daughters he rarely gets to see. Apparently his Mam won some money so gave it to him to go on holiday to Ibiza. Asked me to hold his drink while he went for a slash. So bizarre, I think he actually wanted me to spike it or something 🤷‍♂️
  • Saw a hippy type woman casually strolling along the strip at cafe mambo with a live rat perched on her shoulder. Don’t know what breed it was, but it was furless. So random.
  • Apparently working as a masseuse is well worth it in Ibiza? My missus got offered a job by an Italian lady called Matilda. I was well up for her doing it, but she wasn’t so keen. Boring.
  • Two young Irish girls on their first Ibiza holiday. First ever holiday maybe? Sat next to me and my missus outside the Highlander one night and asked us where the 'Superclubs' are and how to get to them and 'which boat party gets you free entry to these Superclubs' and 'how much are drinks in these Superclubs' and about 1 million other crazy questions. I was just thinking f***ing hell, did you literally just win this holiday as a prize yesterday? They seamed clueless, bless them. I actually was a bit worried for them, reminded me of my eldest daughter (14) Told them as much as we could and wished them the best of luck. Hope Ibiza was good for them.
  • 2 lads from Glasgow, first Ibiza holiday. One told his mate he wanted to try a few lines. So his mate duly sorted him out, thinking he knew the craic. Apparently it was his first time. Blew his mind. Packed his bag and went home! Left his mate on his own in Ibiza. So he did what anyone would do in that situation, he went and got 'JOE ARIBO'(Rangers footy player) tattooed on his leg 🤷‍♂️😂😂😂 another group of lads took him under their wing. I will never forget the footballer Joe Aribo till the day I die. This lad was hilarious without even trying. He tweeted it and apparently Joe Aribo himself 'liked' it. But then 'unliked' it ☹
  • Bought a pair of Gucci sunglasses of the shortest ever Looky Looky man I have ever seen! Lucky if he's 3 foot high. Became bezzies. If you see him down the Wezza shout 'Tyrone' at him, he loves it. What a character.
  • Was a particular day when it lashed down. We went a walk up the Wezza expecting it to be quiet. Total opposite! The Highlander was banging and everyone had been in there getting on it all day. Hats off to the Jocks, they don't f*** about. DJ was blasting out some of that classic Clubland rubbish, you know the constant mashup of nalin and Kane etc. Everyone was loving it 😄 he randomly dropped in an Abba song, and much to my surprise the pub really rocked to it! Never thought I'd see that in Ibiza 'Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight'
  • Taxi driver that brought us back from Ibiza recognised us as being Geordies. I was quite surprised and taken aback. Turns out he has an English wife. Really interesting bloke, he was telling us a history of the island from the 80's onwards. Could of listened to him for ages. Felt like asking him to take us back to Privilege and back again 😄
  • Really odd bloke in Amnesia constantly filming the dancers with his phone. I'm hoping he was their boss or something like that. Looked and acted like a total pervert.
  • Plaja D'en Bossa is still plagued by really annoying drug dealers that follow you harrassing you to buy from them. Fck sake.
  • Generally Ibiza seamed a lot busier this year than 2018.
  • Played every day at the hotel, but finally managed on the last day to win the Killer Darts comp they do every day! Free T shirt, well worth it!
Thats about it, rest of it was a bit of a blur.

Thanks pal 😃👍 appreciate it!

I was not expecting so many likes! Was going to write a few more but didn’t want to bore people, so I think I’ll leave it at that 👍

Just thought I’d try and lighten it up a bit, the forum can get a little bit too serious at times I think.

And yes mate, we had an absolute blinder thanks. Parties we went to and the people we met really made it an epic week 😃 great memories made and new friends found.

For us, it’s what Ibiza is all about.

We flew out of Newcastle last friday on the 7am Jet2 flight. It was a bit too lively. Smoking / vaping and drinking their own booze. They stopping the whole drinks service. Said that police would be waiting, but I did not see it happen.

Someone lifted off my flight from Manchester for abusive behaviour in June also - tour company flight. Delayed us all by half an hour on the ground. He'll be going straight home after a trip to the lockup and most likely a record. Seems it's a very common thing on flights from the regions, they're getting much less tolerant !

  • Does anyone actually go to Es Paradis anymore?
Clockwork Orange parties were the last time any significant number of people went in at the same time I reckon !

  • Plaja D'en Bossa is still plagued by really annoying drug dealers that follow you harrassing you to buy from them. Fck sake.
Nothing changes. Running the gamut North of Bora Bora is just pure annoyance, makes it an even worse place to walk around than it already is !

Indoors or out ? :lol:

I could be wrong, but I would think much like ticket-sellers there are too many masseuses than demand dictates. I'm sure the ones that work ultra hard make enough to get by, and a few of those maybe even good money. But I bet lots really struggle. Maybe if you had a job in a high-end hotel with a conveyor belt of customers, but even then I guess that would be salaried or at least basic+commission.

I'm 90% sure I've had him before as well - really friendly guy.

Yeah I think there is a fine line between being a bit rowdy and then full on taking the piss. Got to respect the crew.

I flew to Ibiza from Glasgow once and they were threatening to land in France as people were doing similar things like smoking and drinking their own booze.

Poor show.

Yeah I’d be fuming if someone delayed my flight like that. Would literally want to punch him straight in the face for robbing me of 30 minutes in Ibiza 😭

Haha the masseuse scenario 😄 my missus asked a random person at Ushuaia to take our pic and she turned out to be the boss of a masseuse team on the island 🤷‍♂️ I initially thought she was asking her to be an escort, and being the experienced man of the world that I am, I just started giggling like a teenage boy ☺

Haha yeah, he didn’t look happy either to be honest. Thought he might of been on the phone to his barber 😄

Yeah I imagine it’s hard to make good money in jobs like that. Maybe people do it for the experience of being in Ibiza all summer and the perks it brings?

Yes that taxi driver was a diamond. Really hope we get him again one day, was really interesting listening to him tell us how he’d witnessed the changes over the decades on the island.

A friend owns a successful massage business in San Antoni (not a happy endings place ;)) always on the lookout for reliable and experienced staff !

I’m going straight onto 12hr nightshifts for 21 days.
😭😭😭😭😭

I take it you're offshore? I'm half way through 21x12hr nightshifts but I'm going back to the island when I get off 🙌
f***ing hell, I don’t half wish I was in your shoes now.

100% seriously considering an October visit 🤔

Just need someone to lend me some serotonin and I’m good to go 😄👍
