LOVE

I noticed this sign in the window… but I already knew that. Paris is love or I’m in love with Paris.

You know, I think that book that I wrote, in a way, was like building something. So that I wouldn’t forget the… details of the time that we spent together. You know, like just a reminder that… that once we really did meet! You know, that this was real! That this happened! – Before Sunset Quotes

And something similar is with my photos, I would not like to forget … I don’t know how to write books or blog, but I can take photos at least I think so.

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.

 

 

 

I knew the pathway

… like the back of my hand

I felt the earth beneath my feet…

Never to go on trips

… with anyone you do not love. ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

That’s why in the last few years I’m traveling alone… only 12 days to Warsaw.

Btw… from 7.7. to 12.7. I’m on holidays in Warszawa. Is any of the locals interested in a photo walk?

The Interview

Today, I need to do my second interview, which will be published on the site NAKED CITIES JOURNAL. I’m very glad that you guys notice my photos and you like them.

This week was very difficult, I got the flu. I do not know how at this time when it’s summer. But I’m happy it happened now and not before the departure to Warsaw.

Days pass by

Sometimes you have to accept the fact that certain things will never go back to how they use to be… like Paris.

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.
