The best food we’ve ever eaten abroad

  Eat and travel. The biggest pleasures in life! I’m sure that if you are reading this blog you agree with us. Maybe, like us, you live for those glorious moments in life when you discover a lovely restaurant in a gorgeous setting, you taste a new flavour for the first time… Sometimes the food is outstanding, others it’s the moment, the company and the location. So before leaving for our next trip this Thursday,  we’ve decided to reminisce about the best food we’ve ever eaten abroad:

Moodboard: Japan

Do you remember this post? Well, since that day we have been thinking about Japan a lot. Four years ago we planned a month long trip to Japan: we were going to start in Tokyo and we were going to end our trip in Okinawa. We were really excited. But our life changed drastically and we had to move to Germany. So our Japanese adventure was cancelled. But our desire to visit Japan is as strong as ever. I’ve only been there once and it was a work related thing so I didn’t have enough time to enjoy the experience. Should we take the plunge and pick our plans up from where we left them? PS. Since some of you have asked, all our beautiful moodboards are made by Pilar Fernández.

Max Mara coats

A couple of weeks ago we made a terrible mistake. We spent an hour in the Max Mara shop in Hamburg. Bad. Very bad. We were looking for our beloved Rialto Coat, you know, just for fun. We wanted to try it on, secretly hoping it wouldn’t fit because, frankly, i’ts quite expensive. But a whole new world of exquisite coats appeared in front of our eyes. Delightfully soft fabrics, flawless cuts, superb yet sober design… Lots of coats to add to our wish lists. See? Bad, very very bad idea.

Peaceful retreats

Travel changes you.  It makes us leave our comfort zones and face new experiences, new challenges and new cultures. But what if  we really look for that change? What if that personal growth is the aim, not a collateral effect? Choose these non conventional retreats for that spiritual peace and  personal transformation. Meteora, Greece The town of Meteora, about a 5-hour drive north of Athens in Thessaly, Greece, is home to a UNESCO World Heritage site – six Greek Orthodox monasteries built on enormous rock pinnacles that rise up to 1,300 feet from the valley floor. Six of the monasteries still operate today. Several of the monasteries are accessible to tourists on a road connecting the rock towers. Byzantine frescoes and architecture are a sight to see, and the views are breathtaking into the valley. Santiago de Compostela, Spain During centuries, St, Jame’s Path has been an spiritual journey for those who, religious or not, looked for growth and personal change. This journey ends in Santiago de Compostela, which historic centre has been designated a World …

AIRPORTS

We love airports and we love discovering new ones. The long waiting hours are shorter if the airport has nice shops, nice waiting lounges, nice restaurants… My favorite airports are Amsterdam Schiphol and T4 Madrid Barajas. Tokyo Narita International Airport is very nice too. I absolutely love buying beauty products in every airport, so my favorite airports are the ones with a huge selection of beauty brands and products :-) Last Friday we spent three hours waiting in Frankfurt Airport and I didn’t like it at all. It was chaotic, not very clean and the shops were disappointing. Well, to be honest we ate a wonderful sandwich at Meyer Feinkost. Which are your favorite airports? Image source unknown, sorry!
