"Slowly in the morning and not too fast in the afternoon" is a saying in the south of France and a way of life on Spain's Costa Brava. When your family is never far from sublime scenery, an exquisite wine and a delicious meal, they're easy words to live by. So feel free to stop, sample and savor. And enjoy the magic of two sun-soaked lands. Slowly and not too fast.
