When life gives you lemons

When life gives you lemons it's time to make some limoncello. Lemons are everywhere at the Amalficoast, so a shot of a mostly homemade limoncello (liqueur made of lemons) is a refreshing but quite strong drink to end a meal.
There are also many shops that sell soaps and sweets looking and tasting like lemons. They are totally nice to look at, very inviting and yummy.

Ciao Positano!!

Ready for a trip to Positano? If you are visiting the Amalficoast in Italy, Positano is a must-see place. You can take the bus or the ferry to go there. 
I decided to take the ferry and I absolutely enjoyed the ride. Having an amazing view to Positano from the sea as the ferry gets closer is stunning.
As allover the Amalficoast the colourful houses are everywhere and so nice to look at. 
It may look like a postcard, but this is a pulsating place with people coming from all over the world to discover Positano. 
As I love to take a walk to discover a new place, there were many great points to have a different view over this heavenly piece of earth.
Those different shades of the sea is magical, and as you can see, people coming to Positano love boattrips.
It was so nice to have a walk at the beach and making the feet happy with every wave that cooled them with the cool seawater.

Amalfi coast - Agerola

Ciao, it's time for some new travel stories and pics. After working working and working in the past weeks I needed a place to relax. Usually travels to the Italian coast mean party and lots of people. So I needed a place both lovated at the coast and make me relax. When I checked the hotels at the Amalfi coast, every single one was so beautiful and inviting. Then I found one located in Agerola, the Villa Donna Fausta Hotel. 
Such a relaxing and calming view from the terrace with nothing but the sea in the background. 
Every detail in this lovely place makes you feel home, it's so cozy and nice to spend time at. 
Here is a detail of the breakfast room, some rustic elements are the perfect decoration for this place. 
This is a lovely place to come back, especially if you don't like the big crowded hotels.

Salad for breakfast

So today I started my day with a healthy homemade salad. I just chopped mozarella cheese, tomato, cucumber, pepper and added black olives. Seasoning, sea salt and olive oil made it spicy and yummy.

Amsterdam is awesome

Here you can see the famous letters of Amsterdam, it was the first highlight after leaving the Schiphol airport. 
The people are so friendly and open to any culture. To see this harmony of different ethnicities was a great experience. 
Even as a tourist it's easy to find a nice place to relax and have a good time - and I don't mean the coffeeshops you can see at every corner. People in Amsterdam love to be outside, and I can understand this totally, there is so much to discover.
There is a great choice when it comes to cafés and bars. It's lovely to see their nice flower arrangements everywhere.

Windowshopping

Walking through the streets is the perfect way to discover a city plus all the windowshopping is free and fun.

I took these pics in Milan, where I absolutely love the windows. It's not only the big brands that are worth to take a look at. Sometimes a totally creative one can be from a shop or a brand you'd never expect from. 

As you can see, it's not necessary to use tons of decoration stuff when the item itself has such a great appearance. 

Even the simpliest messages can look that cool :)

Happy Sunday

As I'm very busy during the week, I try to spend time with my family and friends whenever it's possible - mostly Sundays are the days when I have the chance to be with my beloved ones. Now I enjoy some delish Turkish coffee with my mom and so I'm wishing all of you a happy Sunday!!

Beautiful place card idea

One of my close friends had her marriage  a while ago and I can say that her wedding was the most beautiful one in every way. The bride was a princess, the location very stylish, the table was incredible. What I loved concerning the table decoration were the place cards. Yet simple, but outstanding. You can use this idea for every occasion you'd need place cards for. You just need a wine glass and paper to cut in desired shape. Then write down the name and get the party started!!

Dinner with Tiffany's

 
Having the luck to be at the Boathouse in New York City is unforgettable. Finding some cute presents from Tiffany's was a great surprise, I'm really thankful that the company I work for is soo generous. So I've had a really delicios dinner in a unique location. For me this was the absolutely perfect table. 
This is me making a little stop at the Bethesda fountain on my way to the Boathouse. 
The relaxing atmosphere of The Lake at Central Park makes you forget the noise and the traffic of NYC. 


New York, New York

I'll never forget the view of my hotel room in New York City. How could I? Every single scyscraper seems to tell another story and the are really amazing to look at even from the 38th floor. So having this view at afternoon is great, but I adored the viele at night!!
What an amazing contrast of dark and light, high and low there is. The Big Apple never sleeps and so there is as much traffic at night as during the day. The Rockefeller Center looks magic, right?

Nature's power


Lately I prefer a healthy salad for lunch, not just because it's healthy, but it tastes so fresh and yummy. No matter how many ingredients your salad will have, make sure you top it with a good olive oil extra-vergine. For my salad I've used baby spinach, cocktail olives, cherry tomatoes, cashew nuts and goji berries. Then I added sea salt, some vinegar and olive oil. Healthy, nutritive and full of nature's power. 

Macarons? Oui ma chère!!

One of the first things I'm thinking of when it comes to Paris are macarons. As I love desserts and everything sweet those are perfect for me. Still wondering where to go for the best macarons in town? The answer is Ladurée, of course.
Ladurée offers a huge selection of the finest and most delish macarons ever. Be careful though, you may want to try every single one that has another taste and colour. 
Here you can see a corner of Ladurée The Bar. I was fascinated by all the pattern and colours that reminded me of fairytales.

Delishhh over the clouds

My favourite airline is Turkish Airlines, delicious meals guaranteed. You truly feel like eating in a restaurant. The picture shows my meal in the THY businessclass and as you can see everything has been arranged nicely.

Milano Mercatino Mediterraneo

I love Milan, but not only for being the capital of fashion. Via Papiniano is one of my to-do's when I'm in Milan. It's a nice mixture of fleamarket and foodmarket.  You can get everything fresh and yummy and the prices are really affordable.
You can find almost everthing to eat and cook fresh, so you'll get hungry for sure and want to try the different yummy goodies. 

POACHED PEARS (ARMUT TATLISI)

Boil 3 cups of mulberry syrup (or grape srup) with 1 cup of water, 2-3 cinnamon sticks and 3-4 cloves to add a special oriental flavour. Place the peeles pears into the pot and cook them for 45 minutes at low temperature. Take the pears out of the pot and let them cool. Serve with whipped cream, heavy cream or ice cream. Enjoy!!
