Day 2: Sites and Eats

Posted on July 1, 2009 in More Fun by | 2 comments

Our time here has been flying, with most activities centered around great meals… Dinner reservations start at 11pm over here, making our ressies in NYC seem like the geriatric special…  To prepare for the cuisine, I’ve been watching Mario Batali and our girl Gwyneth Paltrow’s program on the Food Network. An impeccable chef AND guest designer for Lilly Pulitzer…is there anything Gwynie can’t do?


My travels have provided the perfect opportunity to test drive some new styles from Lilly.  I’ve literally been living in my Sherman tunic dress, and now (proudly or embarassingly, however you want to describe it) own it in 3 different prints.  It was perfect for a jam packed day of sightseeing and earned extra credit as the sun set for cocktails. 


We spent the afternoon today touring a certain someone’s world famous Gardens… as it happens, a part of this town is owned by friends of LP, The Count and Countess de Lesseps.  Small world!  Is anyone else thinking that the Real Housewives Global would be mildly entertaining?


Where are we?

I’m confused as to where this parking lot is located. Spain perhaps? I know Mario and Gwyneth did a food special there. Barcelona is where I’m honeymooning–I’m interested nonetheless.
