I am compulsive about printing out labels with addresses of my friends and family. That's usually one of the first things I print out and it's the 2nd thing I take care of on my vacation. So you can imagine how horrified I was when I realized that I totally forgot to print out and bring my labels. I decided to send postcards via my blog, generic though it may have to be. Please fill in the blanks where instructed...
Dear [fill in your name]:
Greetings from [Lisbon or Barcelona]! I hope you're having as great a time in Los Angeles as I am in [Lisbon or Barcelona]. I've been having a fantastic time here - eating, walking, shooting photos, cooking, and shopping.
I really wish you could be here [unless you're someone I'd rather not be around] with me sharing [well, having your own] cup of chocolat & churros. I never knew a cup of chocolate could be so thick.
You would have loved the cooking class Carrie & I took at Cook & Taste [unless you hate to cook]. In spite of my squeamishness from the monkfish that really, really grossed me out, I feel pretty confident that I can make paella [I was the one who made the fish stock...i KNOW i can make THAT]! I'll tell you more about this class later.
Tonight is my last night in Barcelona, so I'd better get packed and ready to go out. I know I'll never be able to pack after a night of food & drinks. I look forward to seeing you when I get home [unless I don't normally see you, in which case I won't]!
Welcome to my travel blog. My travel blog is currently being hijacked by my sad attempts at cooking through my Stalker Series and my own crazy attempts. I don't know how to cook or bake and I'm lucky if I can boil water without the fire department coming to shut me down. If you'd like to contact me [so long as you're not a spammer], please contact me at jenjenk [ at ] devourtheworld [ dot ] com
