Dearest incoming DAI-student, 

We, the entire crew of the DAI, warmly welcome you to join us on Saturday the 2nd of October at Santuary Lluc in the Serra de Tramuntana on the Isle of Mallorca (Spain). For the very special occasion of this combined introduction & graduation week (indeed, you will not only meet with the second year students, but also with those who are saying farewell to the DAI as students, but are still eager to know the incoming new members of the extended DAI family) we have already booked your flights from Schiphol Amsterdam to Palma de Mallorca. No costs will be charged for this flight ! Traveling to Amsterdam will however not be refunded.

SHOULD TRAVELING TO AMSTERDAM BE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN TRAVELING DIRECTLY FROM YOUR HOMEBASE TO PALMA DE MALLORCA YOU ARE ADVISED TO MAKE YOUR OWN ARRANGEMENTS (which will not be refunded, just like traveling to Amsterdam will not be refunded). 

IF YOU JOIN THE FLIGHT ON 2 OCTOBER:
You should know that it will leave at 6:30 am from Schiphol Airport to Palma de Mallorca. 
Arrival time Palma is 8:55 am. You can bring one suitcase for check-in and one carry on bag. From Palma de Mallorca a coach will pick you up at 9:30 to travel to our accommodation in Lluc where we will stay till the 9th of October. Return flights to Amsterdam have been booked as well.

PLEASE CONTACT Jacq van der Spek BEFORE THURSDAY September 9 noon (12:00 CEST)

- to confirm that you are joining the flight. Please send her your name AS IN PASSPORT, your birth date, passport number 
or
- to inform her that you are organising your own travel. Please inform when you will be arriving at Palma de Mallorca.
or
- to inform her about food allergies and/ or other health issues (our chefs need to be duly informed about food allergies - they cannot change the menu on the spot !) 

WHAT TO BRING TO MALLORCA?

Make sure to bring your laptop and/or your phone, your clothes ( do not forget to pack swim gear and something warm for the evening), comfy shoes for walking, your toothbrush, a towel (!!), plenty of mouthcaps and, very, very important, proof of a NEGATIVE ANTIGEN OR PCR test not older than 24 hours (alternatively,  we invite you to do a self-test upon entering the sanctuary - be aware that should this test turn out positive you will not be allowed to join us - please do not take this lightly!).
