Never been ...... but the kids used to have a field day shouting out its name ( pronounced in good old british accents to get maximum effect ) as we saw the sign ....... was one of the moments that will go down as lifetime PP memories

We have driven through Buger several times on the way back from lunch at Menestralia if we fancied the scenic route rather than the motorway. It is very pretty but I don┤t know much else about it. We need to send an explorer !

From what I can remember, it is a very small village, with a windmill behind the church. A small square with a couple of bars. Some lovely views that you come across when walking around the narrow roads - but nothing much else to write home about. It was two or three years ago though, but I cant imagin it has changed much.

Even a write up struggles to find something to say!

"A five minute walk takes you to the village of Buger (pronounced Boojah!) with its four unique windmills, three bars (one does a good bacon and egg breakfast, and sometimes serves evening meals), a great bakery, basic provisions store, post office and of course a lovely old church. There is a small Saturday market but it's all over by 11:30!"

Every time we go past the sign my OH goes 'Well Buger me' just gets so predictable really ! I remember the couple who have La Forteleza live there - thats about its only claim to fame I can remember!

The island has many of these little villiages. Bugar was pushed by agents a few years ago when I was first looking to buy. I was told it was up and coming as English who didn't have the budget for Pollensa were buying there! I'm glad I wasn't gulliable and hung on until I could afford Pollensa as no contest!
The lights went off and no one was home!

to this day every time we drive past the sign I cant resist a little snigger ( still a child) could you imagine having a place there and trying to explain to the people in England that you stay in a buger of a place lol

Its proper pronounciation of Boojah sounds just right for Halloween!

For some reason I cant hear the translation, but the "j" is pronounced as an "h" in Spanish so I think thats what you mean, and certainly is the way I think it is pronounced!

The pronounciation of the Spanish "G" as i understand it here is very gutteral, it sounds like you are clearing your throat.
That said, do we really need to be so serious about it, i think most of us were just having a bit of fun.....childish maybe...but fun anyway. Lets not get too heavy guys....pleeeez.
