Typical Easter Food - simply mouth-watering!

Food | March 20, 2016

Since Easter is coming up soon, I thought I’d dig out a couple of traditional Easter foods from other countries, just in case you have had enough of jelly beans, marshmallow bunnies, chocolate eggs and Hot Cross Buns. Seems impossible to me, but I’m always up for adding new dishes to my holiday meal plan. So here come a few suggestions you can try out or even try making yourself! Pinca is a type of Easter bread, which is common in parts of Croatia and Slovenia.

Lamb is also eaten in its original form, as well as chervil soup, which is preferably eaten on Gründonnerstag (Green Thursday) as it is – exactly, you guessed it – green. Many other countries have some sort of Easter bread or cake, too: Italians like to eat Colomba di Pasqua, which is cake decorated … Continued

West Coast USA aboard the Coast Starlight Express

Australia / Food / Los Angeles / Sydney / USA | October 3, 2014

After a long flight from Sydney to LAX, I hopped off the plane and bid farewell to my arm rest nemesis from seat 53B. Being able to secure the back part of the arm rest for both elbows is the most important thing you’ll ever do on a long haul flight. You don’t want to get into a “one forward, one back” type situation for 13 hours, so asserting dominance early on is key. Seat 53B knew I was the man, however it wasn’t easy.
