Guest Post

A quick update from me...

Cinderella made it safely to her chateau! The driving went great, I just kind of threw myself into the heart of Paris and followed the herd and quickly exited. Though I'm going to have a word with Orbitz for not providing a direct address for the car rental. After googling, then discovering by cab that it was shut down due to a fire, which had a note on the door with the new address. So I'm glad I opted for a cab and not the metro, because the driver was my saint. I can't wait to show you some photos of my drive and my palace, where their motto is a "place of calm" in the heart of Bourgueil wine region. It's beyond fantastic!

But in the meantime, I have Kristen from Behold the Metatron guestposting for me today about her recent trip from Barcelona for Travel Thursday.

Barcelona is a fantastic place to visit. Every district has it’s own style and culture. From the Gothic Quarter’s narrow streets and old school architecture, to the Ramblas, bustling with street vendors and performers, you are bound to find a surprise around every corner!

Dine on the classics… like Paella, fresh seafood, and Patatas Bravas.

Sip Cervasas and cold crisp wines.

   And remember, always have the camera ready to capture a moment!

Be sure to check out Behold the Metatron for more adventures, great recipes, 
and adventures in NYC dining!

Happy Traveling!!
