Easter holidays in Norway are a big thing, but not for religious reasons (the research from two years ago said that only one third of the population believed in God), but more for practical reason.
Everybody knows that Italians are big gourmets and food lovers, but only when it comes to their own, Italian, cuisine. Pizzas, pasta, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil, garlic and various aromatic herbs (basil, rosemary, oregano) are just some of the few ingredients out of what you can prepare simple and fast meal.
The last day in Milan we visited a couple of historical destinations and an aquarium.
The second day in Milan started with a typical Italian breakfast and ended with a fancy dinner. Why? Well it was my birthday 😀 What did we eat you will read in a special post dedicated to Milanese cuisine.
I do not know about you, but my birthday is always at the same time. In the end of January, which is not the best time to travel, but when you live in northern Europe then any trip to the south is more than welcoming. So, I booked us a trip to Milan, Italy.
Just a day after lovers’ day in February we celebrate our anniversary of being together. Usually we just go out for a dinner and a drink. Nothing special, but this is how Debeli widens his views regarding culinary industry, I have a blog theme, and together we still end up eating something. Which is essential for your life being, if you didn’t know 🙂
The city of Oslo is rich with museums, galleries and various exhibition venues. I have recently discovered a new place for contemporary art located just beside the tourist info point at Østbanehallen in the city center.
Debeli and me are huge book lovers. While I read two books at the same time, because I cannot decide between professional literature and something completely different, Debeli manages at least one crime story in a week. Luckily, we have a library in the neighborhood that we also use for borrowing various social games, printing and photocopying. Two kroners per piece of paper. The chepest in the city.
What does Norway and a king penguin has in common? Especially one particular penguin.
In the shadow of the recently celebrated Memorial of Holocaust Remembrance and Prevention of Crimes against Humanity, which is marked every January 27th throughout Europe, I have decided to write a short text about the history of the Jews in Norway and the snublesteiners placed in the larger cities of the country.
