Polish cuisine

…was a slight disappointment for me.

Joke!!!

Of course, I like very much French cuisine and all their dishes. But Polish cuisine … is like the Slovene cuisine. Almost nothing new … maybe because of this I felt in Warsaw like at home.

Restaurant Stolica – a beautiful terrace, friendly staff and very very good food. I think it was one of the best duck I ate… except Manchons de canard pomme sautees.

again nothing new. It’s exactly like that Vienna steak or Dunajski šnicelj in Slovenia. But so much better and tastier. This is the best steak of kind that I ate. Normally I don’t eat Vienna steak in the restaurants. But in a month I go to Vienna, so… Restaurant Portretowa.

same story… but in a new way… and so good! It’s like Krompirjev funšterc or ocvrtki in Slovenia… Restaurant Zapiecek.

like Krof… although we are eaten donuts only for carnival in Slovenia in February.

This time I didn’t have the opportunity to try Zupa ogórkowa … we don’t know this in Slovenia. Something for the next year.

Tom Plevnik – The Interview

https://wp.me/p8Eq1M-H1

This is it… my 2nd Interview 😊 I’m very proud.

Enjoy reading 😉

After Paris…

… I’m already at home for 5 days and I’m still not right … every time after arrival, I have a problem…  I don’t know why…

The idea around what is called “old Paris” is more based on fantasms than on an ancient reality.
People have some preconceptions about Paris and if what they see doesn’t meet these preconceptions they believe it’s because Paris is not anymore the same. Obviously Paris is evolving like any other cities but many of the preconceptions about what Paris was once are false.
Paris is a large city and it has been a large city for a very long time.

I love the old traditional paris cafes and brasseries, but this year I tried new ones and I was pleasantly surprised. Finally, very good coffee in Paris… Strada CaféKB Café ShopFringe CoffeeLa Fontaine de Belleville and of course Boot Café.

All the photos were made with the iPhone … others follow. By the way, D-70 to Warsaw … I can not wait.

Global warming?

I think a new Ice Age is starting… Just 25 days before I’m going to Paris. I see that even in Paris is snow today. I hope that the weather improves soon.

Winter in Ljubljana

Before the end of the winter, some photos of Ljubljana in the snow. After a long time, we were getting a lot of snow here. And I don’t like winter, low temperatures, cloudy and short days … I can’t wait to the end of the winter. And now it’s March and tomorrow it’s supposed to snow again 😦

I love coffee

… especially turkish coffee. I can’t imagine the day without coffee. I started drinking coffee very young at the age of fourteen but my first taste of coffee was much earlier. I was always at the stove when the coffee was cooking. I have always loved the taste of coffee. It was never something I had to acquire the taste for or get used to. There is nothing more inviting and comforting than conversations over coffee. Although I very much enjoy a cup of coffee on my own and watching people passing by, I also enjoy having it with good company. Having coffee with the people you love will give you the opportunity to communicate more and strengthen your bonds with them. This is the
trend of today’s culture already from the Turkish era.

Are you too a coffee lover?

And this part is about me…

6: The Interview There’s still so much I need to learn, I’m still rather fresh in this field. Since I conducted a few political interviews, I thought it would be education for me to interview a few photographers. One of them was Slovenian street-photographer Tom Plevnik. I had been following him on WordPress and enjoyed […]
