WEEKEND READS #21

Weekends are the perfect time to sit back, relax and enjoy! And what better way to do that than discovering great recipes, exciting travel destinations, new restaurants and interesting articles? Once per month I’m sharing with you my favorite weekend reads from the blogsphere and beyond to keep you inspired. I’d love to hear yours so do share!

As we are already mid-June I have started dreaming about my Greek vacation. After visiting the beautiful islands of Lefkada and Mykonos last summer I can’t wait to go back and explore some new places and local food specialties this year. Until then, I can distract myself by cooking a bit of Greek food at home, like braised octopus with short pasta, fried calamari with homemade saffron mayonnaise or coconut ravani (basically, a cake with desiccated coconut and lemon flavored syrup). Gosh, now I’m hungry!  

One of my favourite London-based bloggers, Carrie, has shared a few of London’s hidden gems, which I am on my way to explore myself while I’m in London. By the way, if you have any other suggestions, do share!

Lisbon has been on top of my travel list for quite some time now. After seeing Kim’s beautiful travel guide I promised myself to book those plane tickets asap. Until then I can always to go to Garcia or Forcado in Brussels for a pastel de nata!

Hope you all have a great weekend! x
