Some memories popped up, and I want to share them with you. I often write about my trips in a very positive way as if it is a fairy tale, where everyone is kind, sweet, and helpful. Just the world of unicorns, princesses, and cute dragons, isn't it? Let's be objective, reality always has two… Continue reading ‘Excellent’ Service on Malta
Like I have already written in one of the posts, there were not much food choice in the shops. In addition, products were extremely expensive that only few people could afford them. Luckily, the hunger times did not last for too long. Gradually, things started changing for the better in terms of food availability. And… Continue reading Food Trends in the 90 Russia
I already made several posts praising Portuguese food, so I will skip that part for now. All together I spent 5 months in Portugal, so I had a chance to eat like a Portuguese. 😁 The big change it was for me! In Finland, food hardly has any taste, and almost everything is fat free.… Continue reading My Eating Habits in Portugal
In my posts from the past, I was praising Portuguese people. This time I will talk about not so pleasant things, or better to say, about one trait, which is so typical for Português people - they are absolutely spoiled when it comes to food! Of course, I understand when you live in the country… Continue reading Portuguese Complaints
My today's post differs from the previous ones. I decided to write about... how people eat a kiwi in two neighbour countries: Finland and Russia. I know the whole idea sounds ridiculous because how different it actually can be? But with Finnish friends we discussed this a lot, and it turned out that we do… Continue reading How Do You Eat Kiwi?

Portuguese cuisine is among my favourite, it is full of taste, it is greasy, colorful, and simply delicious. ❤ The essential success of the cuisine is quality products. Vegetables and fruits grown in Portugal taste great because of climate… Continue reading Portuguese Food
This quick post is about the thing, without which spending time in dacha is impossible. I am talking about shashlyk. Shashlyk is meat (any kind:pork, beef, lamb or even chicken) smoked on the atfer-fire coals. Although the origin of this great meal is in Caucauses, shashlyk is widely spread and very beloved in entire Russia.
Russian "dacha" is a piece of land in most cases with a house, located somewhere in the countryside. It is an equivalent for a summer cottage in Finland, but way more modest, often without water and in some cases without electricity. "Dacha" is a place where people grow vegetables, fruits, berries, or simply go to… Continue reading “Dacha”
I go to Russia once a year and spend a week there. This is why very often I feel like a tourist and I get surprised by things which looked so familiar and ordinary before. I try to make as many pictures as possible to share with my friends. The pictures are related basically to… Continue reading Food Shopping
This is not typical for my blog to post foodies, but I think it is important to introduce Czech cuisine as a part of the amazing culture. I would like to start from restaurants. Most of the restaurants don't have fancy interior, and they more resemble pubs with unique atmosphere, to where you can easily… Continue reading Czech Cuisine
