Sunny Ibiza

On May 22, 2013, Ivan and I woke up really late at 3:30 pm.  Lil Dave was awake already.  It seems his jetlag is slowly disappearing compared to ours.  Lucky monkey!

We all used the internet before heading out at 5 pm.  I’m glad that the weather was once again sunny.  Ivan found a place that has good pintxos, so we walked to Mar A Vila

Ivan picked a good variety of pintxos like tuna stuffed pepper, Spanish omelet and empanada with cheese and vegetables.  Some were tastier than others.  Our favorite was the goat cheese on top of a vegetable.  The food was good, but we prefer the pintxos in San Sebastian, Spain. 

We walked to Ibiza Gran Hotel along the waterfront.

Ivan went to find out if there was more tickets for the Fatboy Slim & Pete Tong dinner which is one of the events at the Ibiza International Music Summit.  Unfortunately, it was already sold out.  We walked around the hotel and outside where the pool is located.

It’s a pretty hotel that’s modern and cool. 

We went in search of the restaurant where Fatboy Slim would be playing late tomorrow night.  It’s a small place since it’s inside a restaurant. 

We started walking back to Old Town.  I saw Ikea and wanted to stop in – I’ve never been inside one.

Inside, the store was filled as much as possible with furniture and home décor.  It was so small which disappointed me.  But, we did find some cool things that we might get later for our loft.  I’ll have to go to a huge store sometime in California.

We walked back to Old Town and walked around.  Ivan and I had a Solero popsicle which is quite tasty on a warm day.  Ivan bought me two funny t-shirts at Atlantis.  I love finding cool t-shirts while we’re traveling. 

Ivan wanted to stop and chill by the water with a drink.  Lil Dave got a banana juice while Ivan and I each had a white wine.  Lil Dave was excited when the waiter put his juice in a wine glass.

The funny part was when Lil Dave acted like he was drunk after drinking his juice.  I kept telling him that it was JUST banana juice.  But, he insisted that the waiter put in wine since he thought he was a cute monkey.  What a silly monkey!

We headed back to the apartment to chill for awhile.

Later that night at 10 pm, we walked to Formentera Restaurant.  Ivan read that this place is known for their paella.  Ivan and I shared Padron peppers, mushrooms with garlic and parsley and a seafood paella.

Our Spanish meal was lovely with a glass of red wine.  The food was delicious.  The paella was amazing.  Ivan says the paellas we make at home pale in comparison.  I said Of course it does.. we’re in Spain!

We walked around after dinner.  Ivan was hoping to get a frozen yogurt, but it was already closed. 

We got back to the apartment and used the internet since we were once again jetlagged.  Lil Dave was snoring away.  Bedtime was really late again at 6 am.
