Sanur

Our introduction to Bali was the sleepy coastal town of Sanur. Our mornings started with a lovely buffet-style breakfast prepared by our Airbnb host Dewi. She’s very conscious about cooking healthy food that is still true to Indonesian/Balinese flavors. She varied the selection everyday and we always looked forward to her dishes.

The Things We Ate (Part 1 Burgundy, France)

Where do I even begin with this topic? We had so many excellent meals and treats in Burgundy that there’s no other way to deal with this subject but to just write as I remember things. I’ll probably have a part two on this so watch out for more. But for now if you’ve got… Continue reading The Things We Ate (Part 1 Burgundy, France)

Day Trip To Beaune And Rochepot

This year though, a friend was getting married in… Continue reading Let’s Go To The Market (Baguio City Edition)

Brussels

After a short but lovely time in Bruges it’s time for another short but sweet trip, this time to the Belgian capital of Brussels. Just walking around the city leads to a lot of beautiful and fun discoveries. Not too far from our Airbnb was a flurry of activity. At Place Sainte Catherine there are… Continue reading Brussels
