Night View from Balcony in Ibiza

Another Jetsetter Win

This (the photo below) is the third Jetsetter place I have stayed, and they’ve all been winners so far. It’s a little weird, because Jetsetter isn’t really conducive to my style of travel because I often plan ahead. But, if I happen to be going somewhere, I will check to see if they have a special in that location. Anyway, I’ve never had a problem… and the hotels have always been pretty awesome and unique.

Daily Photo – Night View from Balcony in Ibiza

Ibiza is a really strange place. This hotel (Ibiza Gran) seemed to be typical of hotels in Ibiza when it came to the clientele. Here’s the deal… if you have never heard this, you’ll think it sounds pretty strange — and it is.

So a lot of people in Ibiza dress in all white. White pants, white shirt, free-flowing fabrics, and cavalier attitudes flow in and out of the hotel lobby, bar, poolside restaurant, and the spa. It’s all very strange. It’s sort of a combination of a Clockwork Orange and a Euro Sci-Fi Orgy. I can’t quite explain it… I’m not sure I understand it, and I didn’t succumb, even though everyone did seem very comfy.

After a long day of exploring and shooting, I went out on the balcony to get a shot of the pool and the moon behind the clouds.

    Do the cavalier attitudes that are flowing in and out also dress in all white?
    Guy, I’m bumming for you, but mostly for me. Those sweet Launch photos I am now missing out on are wrecking my attitude. You gotta tell Levar Burton to chill man! You know they cancelled that launch in response to his wise cracking. I say you should hold out until they launch. You’ve come this far Trey. Don’t quit now! You got, like, 4 million unprocessed shots brother! Just sit there and post one of those until NASA wears down and launches for you.

    Pure beauty! Love the blurry clouds. ND filter? Or just long exp. ?

    nice capture – i like the clouds!

    those parties are called “fete blanche” and are typical euro style parties :D those can be elitist and expensive

  • Simon Morris

    Cool shot of the swimming pool Trey – reminds me of something from a James Bond movie… just waiting for a bunch of sharks to pop out from nowhere!
    Looks like the ‘fete blanche’ is getting going in the distance. As for the thug who has chucked the sunbeds in the pool – terrible… beautifully positioned mind! 10/10 ;-)

    They’re just living up to Ibiza’s other name – “La Isla Blanca”. Plus, white looks so good under the nightclubs’ black lights and shows off the Mediterranean suntans, don’t you think? :-)

    Hallelujah, the world is minus one hateful leader. Stayed up late last night watching CNN!! So glad we finally got him. :-)
    Great photo from the balcony, Trey!!! Very pretty, love the pool and the moon!! Hope the launch goes today as planned. I haven’t heard anything yet as the news is mostly about Bin Laden. Good luck with seeing the launch!! Have a great day ;-)

  • Susan

    Cool shot Trey!! I think the idea of dressing all in white is great! Fun to people watch there!

    What a stunning view from the balcony! I am sure it’s the best view in comparison to Fawlty Towers ;)

    Interesting there are no people around, what time of night did you take this?

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks all!

    Kiran – yes it is no Fawlty Towers….

    David – this was around 1 AM or so I think

    Michele – yes i guess it does hehe…

  • Peggy Ivey

    Hahaha! Trey love your verbalizing….”a Euro Sci-fi orgy”. I’m glad to know you didn’t succumb!
    Great picture by the way!

    @DavidS – Actually there are a ton of people dressed in white gathered in the mid-right area.
    Probably being all cool and stuff.

  • Andrea Boyle

    1 am? Maybe nightgowns…
