St. Patrick’s day parade in Cork 2012
The weather was remarkably good this morning. The sun was shining, loads of people went out on the streets dressed in green, there were children eveywhere waving Irish flags, farmer’s market was up and running on Grand parade. I just love St.Patrick’s day! [...]
Germany – Czech Republic car trip 2011
That was an incredible road trip. We got a car in Munich, went to Prague for 2 days, returned to Germany and drove round for 4 days, stayed in small hotels and tried local food on the way. We ended up in Prien am Chiemsee in the end. Read more for all posts and photos from that trip. [...]
Prague from the Petřín Lookout Tower
Petřín Tower is very compact, and it’s pretty easy to take the stairs to the top and back . If the weather is clear you can see the whole Prague underneath. And the view is definitely worth it.

In Russia we have a fast food chain called “Теремок” which specializes in traditional Russian food. So I can’t really call it a crepe, for me it’s just a big pancake.
But what I miss the most is a pancake with sausages and mashed potatoes… So tasty!
I also used to like pancakes with chocolate and banana or cheese and potatoes…

In Soviet times there were no other doughnuts. Only these ones, very thick, deep-fried in oil as a circle sprinkled with sugar powder. In the last 20 years there are more American (?) than Russian doughnuts in Russia – this filled pastry, baked not deep-fried, with some sugar coating on top. But on that exhibition area, ВДНХ, you can buy that old doughnuts, actually that was the reason we went there. They are even called “That doughnuts” to show that they sell good old Soviet stuff )
This is how we eat pancakes in Russia!
I can’t believe I am going there in 8 days already. My flight is on 2nd in the evening, so I will be in Moscow on 3rd at 2am which is ok. I have so much plans, need to buy a lot of stuff, visit a lot of nostalgic places, meet with friends. And all in 2 days) After that – Igromir, and this is gonna be a lot of fun! I will try to make time and take pictures of the exchibition of course.
Pelmeni is something that people usually buy in the stores frozen. This is so wrong, I can’t even start describing it. Pelmeni should be hand made, properly frozen with the right amount of spices and quality mince. I could have some right now… Too bad you have to spend 4-6 hours making them first (
