MALLORCA storyteller Shirley Roberts is launching her latest island initiative.
Humans Of Mallorca, a new Facebook page, sees Shirley hit the streets to uncover the real lives of Mallorquins, expats and tourists.
Well-known Soller journalist Shirley, who appears regularly on Radio One’s Frank Leavers show, is finding people are happy to open up – often with remarkable personal tales.
“I spoke to one woman who was instrumental in bringing Roman Abramovich to Chelsea,” she told the Olive Press.
“Everybody loves to talk about themselves, and I am genuinely interested in people. And I can shut up for five minutes!
“Before you know it they are letting you take their photograph.”
Inspired by the hugely popular Humans of New York page, which has seen Barack Obama, Venus Williams reveal all, Shirley believes Mallorca’s bustling island life is perfect for its own version.
If you see Shirley, camera in hand, get ready to tell your story.
