Layered breakfast: homemade granola, chia pudding and nice cream

I just love my blog! Although I have devoted an enormous amount of time into writing travel stories, recipes, translations and photographs, every moment spent on this website is incredibly fulfilling and makes me very happy. I haven’t been working with such dedication and joy for a long time, and I simply forgot what it means to love your job. Today I made my first video recipe for layered breakfast and, impatient as I am, I had to immediately share it with you. Although I made and edited a lot of videos before, making my first video recipe was incredibly fun and I enjoyed…

All the colors of Andorra la Vella

I’ve been planning to visit Andorra for a long time because I love mountains and sometimes I really need to escape the city and relax. The synonymous for a town in the mountains that first occurs to my mind is snow, everything white and blue cloudless sky, but my first impression of Andorra la Vella was completely different. Grey sky, dark grey buildings and the rain that didn’t stop for hours, an enormous quantity of shops and people who push you constantly, aren’t something you expect to see when you arrive to this mountain town. Luckily, my opinion and impression of…

Andorra, the beauty hidden in the Pyrenees

The Principality of Andorra, with its 85,000 inhabitants, is the sixth-smallest nation in Europe. Its capital, Andorra la Vella, is situated high in the Pyrenees, between the mountains of Val de Nord and Val del Orient at 1,023 meters above sea level, which makes it the highest European capital. Andorra is annualy visited by 10 million tourists, and due to the fact that it has been isolated for a long time because of its geographical position, the highest percentage of visitors come from Spain, especially Catalonia, France and Portugal. There are several reasons for this high number of visitors: its ski slopes,…

Healthy banana ice-cream

Winter is coming so I should probably start preparing desserts that are more suitable for cold weather. But, I still don’t want to give up ice-cream, especially if I can prepare it for breakfast and mix it with homemade granola, strawberries and chocolate chunks. I mean, is there anything that sounds more perfect than ice-cream for breakfast? I bought two kilos of bananas last week. It was too much for me and my husband to eat, so I decided to freeze half of them before they went bad. And it was a great idea because, later, I those regular frozen bananas into heavenly good ice-cream. In less…

Her majesty, Venice

When you come to Venice, the former center of the powerful Republic of Venice, you have the impression that you went back in time. It is a an amazing and unique city built on 118 islands, 170 channels and connected with more than 350 bridges. It is not a surprise that it is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world together with Paris. Its largest and the most famous canal, the Grand Canal, divides the old part of the city into two parts and a dozen of the most beautiful palaces in the city are situated along its sides. Wandering the streets of Venice, you will often…

Healthy hazelnut butter pancakes with banana sauce

Sunday mornings are for sleeping until late and eating great breakfast. And also for doing lots of great stuff you don’t have time for during the week. Like taking long walks, or riding your bike or traveling somewhere…Sundays are magical days! Speaking of doing something cool today, I’m so ready to take my bike and go to the beach. I love looking at the sea and the perfect blue sky. It wipes my troubles away. Sometimes I love Barcelona so much but, I have to admit, sometimes I feel so bored here. I know you will call me crazy, but I guess it happens…

Healthy hazelnut and almond granola

Granola is something I always like to have in my kitchen. It’s delicious, healthy and great to combine with all sorts of ingredients. You can combine it with overnight oats, chia pudding, yoghurt, milk and fruits. Even when I travel, I bring a jar of homemade granola with me to have for breakfast cause you never know what kind of breakfast you’ll have in your hotel. Sometimes there are some healthy options, but sometimes you can only have bread, croissants or cakes and that’s really not something I’d eat for breakfast. Better safe than sorry, I always say. Even if I…

Forty-three seconds of paradise

How many times have you heard people call a place “paradise on earth”? This expression usually refers to islands in the Caribbean Sea, their  turquoise sea, white beaches and cloudless sky. Unfortunately, I have still not had the opportunity to visit the Caribbean, but I also think there is no need to go that far in order to find paradise. There are so many magical places also in Europe, that one life is probably not enough to visit everything. Today, I wanted to spend forty-three seconds with you in a  place called Imerovigli, one of the towns on the cliffs of…

Overnight oats with banana, hazelnuts and almonds

I can’t understand people who don’t eat breakfast because they are not hungry or they don’t have time in the morning. I simply can’t. Ok, we all sometimes oversleep and then rush out of the house forgetting coffee, breakfast and who knows what else. I hope this doesn’t happen so often to you, because I know from my experience how bad it feels . Another reason for skipping the breakfast – because you are not hungry in the morning-never happened to me.  As soon as open my eyes, I am hungry and I need to eat something. Actually, I’m always a…

Paris will always be…Paris

Paris. The city of light. The city of love. There is no person in this world who hasn’t fallen in love in it. Or with it. Paris is an incredible city, so beautiful and elegant that takes the breath away. It is so rich in history, museums, monuments and parks that it is so difficult to decide where to start your visit. Luckily, I have visited Paris a lot of times in my life and I have impression there is something that makes me return there and explore it from a different angle every time. That city always succeeds to take my…
