A mainly foodie half a day in Venice

I love Venice. Yes, it’s touristy, full of shops selling Murano glass and venetian masks, cheap souvenir carts, day trippers from the many cruise ships; food mostly sucks if you don’t know where to eat. It’s expensive and yes, it’s romantic in a very stereotypical way with its web of…

After a few days partying in Mykonos, and almost a week of blissful relaxation in Koufonissi, we packed everything and jumped on the Sea Jet boat to Folegandros (φολέγανδρος), a remote and rocky small island in the Aegean Sea, about 40km north of Santorini.   Folegandros is one of the very few…

A weekend in Paris

A few weeks back, I spent a much needed girlie weekend in Paris with A and C. Our plan was to relax and take a break from our hectic lives, enjoy the simple pleasures of food and wine, and get inspired by the stylish and classy beauty of the French…


Medieval village dining

A few days back, I flew to Genoa and spent a long weekend on the Italian Riviera, in the small town of Borgio Verezzi, that I am used to visit since I was a newborn baby :). Borgio Verezzi is made of two small towns, Borgio, by the sea with…
