L’Oceanographic at sunset.

I get to go to a lot of nice dinners.

That’s one of the perks of traveling with your husband for his work – I usually get to attend corporate events in fancy places. And then I make fart jokes, because I need to keep it real, you know?

That’s how I ended up eating dinner at the Submarino restaurant at the bottom of the L’Oceanographic at the Ciudad of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia, which is a rather remarkable venue.

 

A massive aquarium winds around the dining room.

 

Sometimes, you get photobombed by a sting ray.

 

You sit, surrounded by swimming fish.

 

And then, in a rather perverse and somewhat barbaric move, you get to eat their friends. I suppose I should have taken a photo of the meal, but that seemed sort of macabre, you know?

So instead, here’s one of Rand.

(Insert inappropriate joke about how delicious he is.)

    I want to go to there.

  • That stingray is hilarious! I’d kill to go to that restaurant. It looks amazing!

  • Incredible dining, love it. That would be interesting to have meals surrounded by swimming fish.

    Did anybody talk business during that dinner? I’m wondering…

  • What is it with work dinners? I got to have dinner in the aquarium in Perth, Australia as a trailing spouse.

    I just had a good chuckle because I showed this post to my husband to marvel at eating in an aquarium and instead he says, “Is that her husband?! He’s a handsome dude!” Your beloved does get admiration from everyone!! 😉

  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
