Nature walks and rides in Barcelona

Barcelona is one the densest cities of Europe, and it is not unsurprising that people seek nature to escape smog and noise come the weekend or during the week. The Collserola hill is accessible by bycicle or foot and it is my small piece of heaven on earth here in the city.

Summer recipe

Let me tell you about the recipe I came up with tonight 🙂 I had promised my hubby for our comfort meal tonight, spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and prawns. After my run, I headed to the shop and bought all the necessary: cooked prawns, wholemeal spaghetti (a first), and other things. The idea was to […]

Slowing down in Garda

Hello bloggers! After a week in Nebraska for a work event, and 3 months with non stop working, I took a week off to come home and recharge. As I get older I love my village more and more, although I would still find it hard and almost inconceivable, to leave the life I made […]

La Graciosa, the 8th Canarian Island

Hello, it’s me again with another brand new post about this dreamy side of the world, Canary Islands! We have been indulging in adventures on Lanzarote for six full days and today we decided to complete the week by leaving the island for a day trip on another island, pure island hopping! La Graciosa is […]

Lanzarote, a natural playground

I am not sure about you, but when thinking of Lanzarote, or Canary Islands, those unappealing built up resorts areas often come to mind, probably because that’s what’s often advertised at home. However that’s just a small part of Lanzarote, and as you may already tell, not one I’m interested in. If you have this […]

Recent best pizzas had in Barcelona

Spaccanapoli, el Born This pizzeria and restaurant is a little gem in one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods of Barcelona, El Born. The staff and the ingredients are 100% Neapolitan, and the vibe is great. We had “fruttini” as dessert, not knowing this trade marked brand, famous all around the world and available in some […]

Munich, Germany

This year I used my visits home as an excuse to explore two new cities. One of them is Munich, which is located just five hours by train to Verona. The train journey is not only cheap (I paid 80 euros only, despite buying it last minute), but also very scenic as you go through […]

El Viti Taberna, a bistro in Barcelona

I had a very nice dinner with my friend last Thursday. This place was recommended to me and it didn’t disappoint. The tapas menu was varied, modern and traditional at the same time as it kept some Spanish staples such as croquetas, or patatas, but with a twist. We had the ‘aubergine and smoked scamorza […]

New job, new thoughts

Another job, a better salary, a step closer to success as people see it. I don’t. It’s just a job. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but I can’t help being nostalgic or probably romantic about older times. I’m only 34, but this remote work life is not for me. And all […]
