Stories from travels near and far.

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 Džiugas, 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’re 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?

Spring. An ouverture.

Much overdue article, as May is almost finished and the summer is about to start. Nonetheless, enjoy the flower photography. Never too much of flowers in life!
