The Bahamian Blues

No, I am not talking about the genre of music. Neither am I saying that “blue” reflected my mood during the Bahamas trip. I am literally talking about the thousand shades of beautiful blue in the Bahamas… including the beach, the pools, the skies and other scenery.

A short trip in Nassau was my first fling with the “all-inclusive” travel. Regular readers of my blog will know that I tend to avoid that genre, but the perpetual Danish darkness and the Canadian cold really left me craving for some warm sun rays. No wonder, I jumped on the idea of a beach vacation when my best friend brought it up.

The verdict: even though not my preference, all-inclusives are not bad at all, especially when you have a stunning view anywhere you look. Sharing some of those scenic spectacles with you!

Culinary adventures in Kraków

Eating out in Denmark can get really expensive. And let’s admit it: a little too healthy! So, when my roommates and I went to Kraków for a weekend in late October, we made it a point to take advantage of all the cheap, delicious and fatty comfort foods.

Manzana

Why we decided to have Mexican food on our first night in Poland, we don’t know, but I am glad we did. Manzana is a classy Mexican restaurant located in the Kazimierz district (Jewish quarter). Having travelled to many places in Latin America, I’d say I am bit of a connoisseur when it comes to Latin food and I am happy to report that most of their gourmet dishes that are actually pretty authentic. If you can’t handle the Latino spice, they’ll tone it down for you. And as a vegetarian, I have to give them 20 bonus points for having a whole vegetarian section.

PS: The drinks are stellar and if you aren’t in mood for a cocktail, just admire their good-looking bar! Continue reading
