Stories from travels near and far.

On chocolate and Valencia.

A story of cocoa beans, Valencian bollet and the Chocolate Factory and Museum in Sueca.

Souvenir, the taste of a place.

Bringing edible souvenirs gives one a chance to share a little bit of the journey, allows one to paint a picture of the place and reinforce it with flavour. A story of D啪iugas, a famous cheese from Lithuania.

Motovun, Istria’s Minas Tirith.

Lit by the shy autumn sun, surrounded by mist, towering above the landscape, there it was - Motovun, the Minas Tirith of Istria.

Obwarzanek in the Arctic.

Who would have thought that this humble bake from Krakow will have such an international career? A story about food at Polish Polar Station Hornsund.

Horchata de Chufa: Valencia’s tasty secret.

Horchata is one of these things that are a must-try when visiting their place of origin. Have it with fartons, horchata and farton combo doesn't disappoint.

Voy.

Working in the restaurant is an endless venture into the unknown: one can never be sure what will happen during the shift. But we鈥檙e doing it for the thrill, right?

A study in frost.

When you wake up and the world is too beautiful to stay in bed, go for a walk!

On olives and Istria.

I like to think of Istria as an olive country: from whatever point you choose to look, you will probably see an olive grove, or an olive tree at least. And the olive oil there is, well, awesome.

Shinrin-yoku, the Art and Science of Forest Bathing.

Don't know about you, but I felt compelled to run to the forest the moment I finished reading this book. Ready to invite nature into your life?
