Descansa en paz my Wonder Twin ❤
I’ve first met Lizzie in Bristol when we were both working at her brother’s (in)famous tapas bar Rocinantes, back in 1992. Since then she’s been to Sevilla a couple of times (the last time almost 20 years ago!), but I have also seen her since then, once in Bristol and another time in London. In the meantime she married the lovely Russell and so I was thrilled when Lizzie told me they’d be coming to Sevilla for a visit. We’ve been having a blast, though I fear they may be leading me astray… 😉
About a million years ago (okay, maybe 12?) I was a member of a travel forum called SlowTrav and got to “meet” a lot of interesting people there. The forum has since moved on, but I stay in touch with some of the old SlowTrav people via Twitter and Instagram, one of whom is Kathy @trekcapri. She’s been in Portugal with another SlowTrav alumni, and now she’s here in Sevilla, with her sister and brother in law. So today we met for a lovely seafood lunch at La Barra de Inchausti. As you can see, everyone had a great time. They are here for a week so we plan to meet up again.
This woman knows how to make an entrance – what a hat! It’s been awhile since Fourat and I met for a “catch up” lunch so we finally made a date, which also included some Tapas Research. We also talked about our future plans and, for the first time, I mentioned an idea I’ve had for awhile to someone else. It was a bit scary but, as usual, Fourat had a lot of great advice and ideas for me to help get things going. So now I have a lot to think about and also something to work on over the summer. Wish me luck!
