Tulum

Tulum is probably one of the most astonishing archeological sites in the Yucatan Peninsula, in between its sandy beaches and its jungle like forest you can find yourself in the midst of a sacred Mayan town. Tulum is said to have been inhabited between 1200-1521 AD, as a central port town for mayan commerce, due to…

Cancun

Cancun, and the Yucatan peninsula, have a double personality: the more touristic, party-life, cocktails and music on the beach side and then there’s the more Mexican side (where its not that pretty, but the food, the music, and the people are amazing!). Mainly known as the favorite destination for spring-breakers, there is definitely much more than just…

Food in Japan

Japanese food is nothing like what we get in European Japanese restaurants! First of all there is much more than just sushi, and even the sushi is different (Sushi-making). Their cuisine of course mainly includes rice and proteins: fish, meat and eggs. The diversity of the country is reflected also in its food, So here is…

Bilbao and San Sebastian

When we started our roadtrip towards Pais Vasco, I had absolutely no idea of what I would find at arrival. I knew they speak a very strange dialect, the Euskera, which does not derive from Latin, is different from any other European language, and is characterized by a vast use of the letters K, V…

México

One of my bucket list destinations has always been Mexico, so when I had the chance to visit the country I was ecstatic. I don’t know exactly what fascinated me the most, but it just seemed like such a rich country culturally: history, arts, architecture and food. I think the Latin American culture is incredibly…

About us

Determining the day we met is quite complex, we believe it was some time around January 1997, but I could be very wrong given that we were only 2. Our mothers met by accident and realized we were the same age and living in the same building, therefore they thought we could be friends. They were…

Seville

Down in the South of Spain, in the region of Andalusia, lies the amazing city of Seville. Birthplace of Flamenco and home to one of the most beautiful Easter processions, Seville is considered one of the most charming cities of Spain and, in my opinion, of the world. Some people say that Andalusia is actually…

Eixample, Barcelona

Eixample is the area where I lived and of which I grew extremely fond. What is really interesting about this area are its origins: Eixample means ‘expansion’ or in Catalan. It is a district of Barcelona between the old city (Ciutat Vella) and what were once surrounding small towns (Sants, Gràcia, etc.), constructed in the…

Quiche Lorraine

The Quiche is a savoury sort of cake, which can be filled with all kinds of vegetables, fish, meat, cheeses and what ever you like, and one of my favourites is a french classic: the Quiche Lorraine. For some strange reason I find myself cooking this more around Christmas and in the colder months. So…

Weekend in Lisbon – Day 2

If your Day 1 didn’t end in the early morning hours (which is likely given Portuguese night life) then get ready for another full day of hiking around Lisbon’s steep roads! Day 2: In the morning head to Rua Augusta for a breakfast at Pastelaria Brasileira Horaris – they have beautiful pastel de nata with almonds,…
