Slovak Goulash

Goulash (in Hungarian gulyás) is a well-known and popular dish originating from Hungary.

Spooky Bratislava, let’s take a walk on the dark side. Down the narrow alleys, where every step makes a creaking sound. The party is long over, only bottles filled with sadness have been left behind. The castle shines in its loneliness, perhaps as lonely as those kings and queens that […]

Old Indian wisdom (Ayurveda) tells us that one’s constitution is made up by the combination of three different doshas (bodily humours) – vata, pita and kapha. With the temper of a typical kapha (and pitta, but we can forget that for the time being), I’m supposed to be slow, patient, […]

There might be a lack of snow and the town might be more well known as a summer destination. But a walk around Trosa during Christmas is a cosy experience. Även om det är en avsaknad av snö och att staden är mer känd som en sommardestination, så är det riktigt […]
