Small city. Home of Philips. Unexpectedly great food scene. This is how would one summarize this city in the Netherlands. Really lovely. Super cool. Musts if there: Downtown Gourmet Market, here: http://www.downtowngourmetmarket.com  A super cool place. Rather small for what I expected but really well thought, overall not a classic Market Hall but a cozy, kind of like a big family restaurant with everything. Compared to other Market Halls where you chose your own stand, you […]

DON’T withdraw money while half asleep; DON’T always go with the cheapest hostel you can find on booking; don’t go for public transport unless you really have to; do walk a lot; do eat at Gdański Bowke; do enjoy fresh seasonal food at Klatka B; do try their salmon soup; do eat lots of fish; do get a sunburn in April; do visit the sea; DON’T eat the Berlin Kebab they have – it’s anything but a […]

buildings don’t come with heaters; nata pasties are everywhere; francesinhas are everywhere; you can’t put down a Francesinha; tiles. everywhere there is tiles; you buy everything that comes or resemblances with tiles; pork and seafood is everywhere; the ocean is at 2 euro metro ticket distance; the ocean is beautifully intimidating; there is cheap decent beer; there is no street food – except for some occasional roasted chestnut stands; coffee is less than a euro; […]

So yeah, I’ve been to Paris. Did I fell in love with their cheese? Baguette? Yes. The city, not really. And is not like I had any expectations or anything, it just…didn’t have a charm. Anyway, back to the cheese and baguette. Uf. and the food. I think you honestly can’t go wrong with food there. Since I feel rather uninspired in wroting this post, I will summarize my weekend spent there: Spent time with […]

Have you ever dreamed of dining at the same place where Victor Hugo and Ernest Hemingway used to be regulars? Have you literally dreamed of following their steps?(the floor has not been changed ever since the restaurant opened). Then Polidor restaurant is for you. Located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, this historic restaurant, founded in 1845 will warmly welcome you in a warm cozy parisienne atmosphere.   Just to make myself clear, the restaurant […]

Romania day 5 is finally here! Fortunately, sadly. As stated in my first post, it was maybe one of the (only) best week ever spent home since I moved away. The ending of the trip wasn’t far from that. We spent in Sibiu and Sighisoara, two cities that grew close to my heart. Especially Sibiu. As bad as it might sound, I felt like I am not in Romania anymore but yet I was. People […]

Romania day 4 was Transfagarasan. Yeah, that famous road we have and which Top Gear praised. It was my second time there but definitely another experience. The whole way up is absolutely breathtaking and mesmerizing but once you reach the top you reach the food stands heaven. Man, you can find everything in there. Kurtos kalacs, homemade salami, pastrami, cheese, syrups, honey, pig’s skin, sausages, everyyythiiiiing. So, naturally, first thing, Kurtos Kalacs. Then a bit […]

It was a Sunday. And it was very brave of us to attempt to get on the top of the mountain by cable. The queue was as long as 3h so naturally we trusted out host to get in this road trip through the mountains with a guy he knows. As dodgy as it sounded, we went ahead. But not before breakfast. Whenever I go home I find myself craving some foods that I can […]
