Olivia Plaza Hotel in Barcelona, Spain

Olivia Plaza Hotel in Barcelona, Spain

After lots of research, I decided on the Olivia Plaza Hotel for my few pre-cruise days in Barcelona, Spain.  Stay tuned to see if I was happy with that choice.


Trobador Restaurant in Barcelona

What's the first thing I did when I arrived in Barcelona?  EAT!  With all the travel and time changes, I was super hungry.

We grabbed a spot at an outdoor cafe near our hotel and dug in.


Flying to Barcelona

I've mentioned before that I am a nervous flyer.  Which doesn't bode well with my love of travel.  You could say that I don't really love to travel, I just love to arrive.  :)

Frontera by Rick Bayless at O'Hare International Airport

I was comforted before my flight with some chips and guacamole at Frontera in O'Hare International Airport.  I like to eat a little something because you never know what you are going to get on a plane and when.  This was step one of my distractions.


Behind the Scenes at Oprah's Lifeclass

Have you ever thought about what you would wear to an Oprah Show taping (or any taping of a show)?  I've had to think about this several times, and each time it gets more difficult.  I have my favorite top or two, but are they television worthy?  Anyway, this last time I went, I had my daughter take pictures of each outfit to help me decide what it looked like on camera.  This is what I went with.

So if you ever catch an episode of Lifeclass: Fatherless Sons on OWN, look for me in this.
