About

Hi,
my name is Klaus Fabricius. You may have come across my other blogs, Mallorcaphotoblog, Mallorca Observed, Plantarum Maioricarum, theArxxiduc, trueMALLORCA, A Year in Mallorca, Postcards From Felanitx or Postcards From Santanyí.

With this new blog, Postcards From The Real Mallorca, I’ll focus on the incredible wealth of Mallorca’s multifaceted scenery, and photos only will do the talking.

Enjoy.

  1. In 1972 I worked for a month on a duck farm just outside Palma, owned by an englishman named Battenburg, who lived in Puerto Andraitx. I have visited Mallorca last year but couldn’t find it. I believe it was in a place called Indioteria. Do you have any ideas about where I could research this? BTW: I love your blogs!

    • Hi Jim,

      I have no idea whether you’ll get any info regarding this reply all these years later, whether or not you’re still interested in any info, or indeed whether you’re still around.

      There’s a couple called Battenberg who run a restaurant in Port de Sóller called Restaurante Es Passeig. They were still there as of 2019. Obviously Battenburg/Battenberg, (presuming that it could be either), is definitely not a very common name, and Port de Sóller is just up the road. I know S’Indiotería, and doubt very much whether there’s a duck farm there now. Spanish bureaucracy is quite officious and all-encompassing. A pain most of the time, but it can be a bonus in situations like this. I love quandaries such as this; potentially finding the ‘un-findable’, especially when it helps someone find something that’s important to them. Given that this is nearly 50 years ago, and Mr Battenburg owned a farm at that time and was therefore already older than the first flushes of youth, I’d imagine that there’s a good chance that he’s no longer with us. Given that, his unusual name, his expat status 50 years ago, (when it certainly wasn’t common), the nature and location of his business, I’d imagine that I could unearth his story quite quickly and comprehensively.

      My email is in the details left for posting so I should get a notification of any reply.
