Rome

Me and my cousin have a tradition. Once or twice a year we arrange a trip to somewhere neither of us has been before and we spend 4-5 days walking around, sight seeing and being exhausted walking 25-30 kilometers a day (because we have an unspoken rule not to use any sort of transport during…

My first trip to London

Back in April this year, me and my significant other arranged a four day trip to the UK. This being both of our first time in London, it is safe to say we had a list of (more than) 50 places we wanted to visit, it is also safe to say we barely managed to…

My Day-off extravaganza tomato sauce spaghetti

Once upon a time, when I would go to school and that was were my responsibilities ended, I would have half a day to my own easily. During that time, because of my love for pasta (of any sort), I learnt how to make the best tomato sauce to go with spaghetti and I would…

Angelico’s portobello mushroom sandwiches

During all my visits in Washington DC there was always a place where I loved to eat. Sometimes once per visit, and sometimes almost every day depending on how long I’d stay. My favorite thing there was the portobello sandwich which is entirely meatless, but has the amazingness of the best steak sandwich you’ve ever…

Light

Believing. It is hard sometimes. You want to just accept the negative, the bad. Take it in and embrace it. You want to live in a world where something good is immediately followed by something bad in order “to restore the balance”. You are choosing the easy path, over the right one. “Why easy?” you…

Vietnamese Summer Rolls

Months ago I was out shopping for groceries and I saw a pack or rice paper. I said to myself “I can do something awesome with this! “. So here I am, after watching maybe a thousand videos about how to make these rolls I found out there is no “classic recipe” in this area,…

Washington D.C. Day 4 – Italian Gourmet Deli

A place where I went for a lunch once like two years ago. And here comes the realization that out of the two types of people: The ones that love French food and the ones that love Italian food, I am definitely the second type. Nothing is better for lunch than a pile of fries…

Washington D.C. Day 3 – Vapiano

Today for dinner, I was surprised by an Italian restaurant – Vapiano. A place where you order your food, and watch the cook make it right in front of you. I was so pleasantly surprised, not only because I love Italian food all together, but because pasta is one of the things I live for….

Washington D.C. Day 2 – Chipotle

I did work and travel for three summers in Rehoboth beach, DE. My second summer there a Chipotle opened doors and I remember it immediately became me and my friends favorite place to eat. Why? It is delicious, it is cheap and you fall in love with it right away. It has now been two…

Washington DC Day 1 – Tenley Bar & Grill

So, day one in DC, if we don’t count yesterday’s nightmarish 12 hours of flights, mixed with 4-6 hours wait in between and then 2 hours waiting to pass customs followed by 2 hour bus/metro ride. It ended, however, on positive note as I managed to get a sandwich from one of my favorite places which…
