Magic island Eivissa and, Formentera the last paradise of

europe. The 1950's, 1960's and 1970's were the golden years of joy and was the best time to be there. The opoque of the old artists and bohemians and the years of freedom. The years of joy and the luxury to be without cellphones!!!Photos from top downwards -
