    I may have accidentally found the best public transport system I've ever come across, and it's bizarrely in Mallorca.
    Get ready for a very underwhelming post as I didn't take many photos!
    Here is the very unusual underground bus station in Palma which took me ages to find and was very confused by Google Maps until I realised it literally was underground - as was the small train station (which sadly I didn't have enough time to use).

    https://www.tib.org/en/inici is the PTE and its ticketing and route planning system is not only very cheap but is an exemplar digital public transport information system. Lots of kudos there. The busses are all Scania from what I could see and pretty much brand new and looked very nice and colourful. They were all very appropriately optimised for their routes -  mix of low and high floor including a very unusual high floor bendy bus which took me to the airport on my way home.

    I was on a cycling holiday and an additional surprise highlight was our lunch stop in Soller where the café we randomly picked had a vintage tram go past every five minutes!

    Also saw a HMMVW and a weird Chinese car

    I thought Lynk appeared as some kind of online only Chinese brand, then died away, but I want to say they were ahead of Tesla in going for the asset-light sales model.
    Also saw loads of 'dr' branded cars, never even heard of that one before.

    Thinking of having an impromptu coffee and meet-up Sunday 9th June at the Brewhouse project on the outskirts of Arundel, West Sussex. Late lunchtime, 1:30-2pm meet up.
    Brewhouse Project is the taproom for the Arundel brewery and they do take homes, as well as selling coffee and food.
    I arranged one last autumn which was attended by a good dozen or so members of the forum with a good variety of both automotive gems and automotive chod.
    If there's any interest please indicate below!
