next island: Lipari, which is the largest of all the Aeolian Islands. and you can kinda tell right away, it’s very crowded compared to all the others, it’s like the Meatpacking District of the Tyrrhenian Sea. despite its size however, it was the most difficult to get a decent dining recommendtion for; nobody we spoke to particularly enjoyed whatever culinary experience they’d had. unfortunately, a suggestion to dine at La Nassa came too late, so we decided on Filippino (oh the irony– haa, get it?) instead despite its half-hearted endorsement ("somewhat passé"). and yah, it did end up kinda sucking just a wee bit. afterward on our stroll back to the marina we happened to stumble upon La Nassa, and it was very cute so we all regretted not having tried it. oh well.

the next day was nice and breezy so Black Sea raised its sails, yay!

oh one other thing i should probably mention are the shady marina operators in Lipari. they’re all very competitive evidently, so they will lie right to your face telling you what you want to hear so you will pick their specific dock over all the others. merely a warning– cuz i think yacht politics is just so fascinating really.

  1. Aack! Hello again, my love! I’ve missed you terribly! You are a sight for sore eyes! I adore you!

    Sorry, Abbe, but as usual, I’m not talking to you. I’m talking to that gorgeous vessel.

    Aeolian Islands, eh? Less cliche than St. Tropez ;)
    Don’t get me wrong though, I would probably gladly travel to hell and back aboard that beauty.

  2. Ugh, just looked up Roberto Cavalli’s Baglietto named- uggh!- Roberto Cavalli. Now that is one ugly atrocity!

  3. swee!

    hi hi! :)

    oh so the French Riviera is cliche now, huh? so where did yer boy (and one of “[my] people” ha haa) aboard TheSequel end up this year?

    and yah i just googled Cavalli’s boat and omg! i think i actually saw it in St Tropez last year, no joke. i mean come on, how could you miss that thing?
    my friends saw it this year but i missed it.

  4. oh and by the way, in terms of beauty and congeniality— sorry, but i just think the south of Italy really really kicks the south of France’s ass.
    i’m just sayin.

  5. Abbe, I can’t believe you remember The Sequel! I haven’t spoken to him in a while, he’s actually a friend of a friend. He did say last year that Black Sea is a real head-turner ;)

    Dick, just as long as my schooner doesn’t get your johnson up, we’re all good. LOL right back at ya.
