Meeting Ivo Adam

Jul 17th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

While vacationing in Switzerland last month, I was not expecting to encounter any stars.  But the stalking gods were definitely smiling down upon me because encounter a star, I did – a Swiss celebrity chef named Ivo Adam.

Upon arriving in Ascona, a gorgeous lakeside town in Switzerland’s Ticino region, my best friend Robin’s girlfriend, Steffi, suggested we grab an afternoon cocktail (or aperitivo) at her favorite area bar, Sea Lounge – a watering hole that sits rights on the harbor of Lake Maggiore.

Ladurée from “Gossip Girl”

Ever since watching the Season 4 episode of Gossip Girl titled “Juliet Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, in which Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) was shown in a bubble bath eating a box, ahem, boxes of Ladurée macarons, I have been just slightly obsessed with the Paris-based confectionery.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Jun 14th, 2013 | By | Category: This and That

The Grim Cheaper and I are heading to Switzerland this evening to visit my best friend, who lives there, for a two-week vacation. I have not been to the Land of the Alps since August 1995, when my parents took me there as my high school graduation present. I fell in love with the country and cannot wait to share its beauty with the GC.

The amazing photographs posted here are some that my dad took during that trip, almost 18 years ago.

That’s me […]
