Nom Nom

Beware: Do not scroll down with an empty stomach! Here are some pictures of food I made in autumn 2017 in different kitchens. After lots of practice I am proud to say that I cook and bake much better and got more compliments now compared to one year ago 😊 Tortino al cioccolato con cuore…

2.5 luni în România pe bicicletă

Astăzi, vreau să vorbesc despre experiența mea în România. Am intrat în România din Serbia în august cu bicicleta. Atunci nu puteam vorbi deloc română. Am întâlnit unii români care au vorbit bine limba italiană sau germană pentru că au lucrat în Italia, Germania sau Austria. M-am simțit norocoasă că am învățat aceste limbi, altfel…

Tök Tök: Pumpkin harvest day

As I took a break from the crazy wind in the petrol station, I looked up on Warmshowers to see if there are any hosts nearby. I wouldn’t possibly want to pitch my fragile tent in this situation.  I found Milan’s profile 16km away from where I was. Since I didn’t have a Hungarian SIM card,…

New chapter: Hungary

Look, it’s Magyarorszag! This country with a hard-to-pronounce name seems to have a strange way of greeting its visitors.  I basically checked in battling wind gusts up to 40km/h.  I’m actually happy to be back on good old bicycle lanes. It’s been something I’ve not had for the past 2.5 months in Romania. I even…

Cave exploration in Polovragi, Romania

“​On the way to Târgu Jiu, you might pass by Polovragi. Ask about this family, they will take you in for the night.” After a gruelling hilly ride and later a comfortable night at the family’s guesthouse, I sat down in the dining room at 9 in the morning. Cheese, milk, coffee, toast and zacusca…

A humid week with new friends

One week has passed since I stepped my foot on the bank of this beautiful river of Drava on the Croatian side. Are you curious where I am now? The answer is: I am still here! I slept under the stars for nights by the river. Every day, a few families or individuals with dogs…

Von Graz bis Rumänien auf dem Rad: Anfang 

Tag 1: Ein Platten Wir sind losgefahren um 19 Uhr von Graz, und haben den Radweg entlang der Mur gefolgt bis ein Dorf in der Nähe von Wildon, wo wir unseren Zelt aufgebaut haben. Es ist nicht so schön dass ich einen Platten habe am ersten Tag von unsere Reise nach Rumänien. Der Himmel ist…

A day in Kher’s life #2: Paddling in Zürich 

MOVIE BELOW 27 June 2017, Zürich, Switzerland  9am+ “We’re going to spend the evening on our boat in the river today. Do you want to join us?” asks Karin, my Warmshowers host in Zurich. “Of course!” I reply with a high tone, unable to hide my excitement.  It is my second day in Zurich. Valerio…
