We are so lucky with the life we lead. This year, we spent the full Summer in Vlora, Albania. I didn’t really know what to expect of this country, because it was never on my radar before this year. We rented a nice top floor apartment with a big roof terrace that had a view … Continue reading Summer in Vlora
It's our weekend and there's only one place we want to go to: the beach! As I am sitting on the beach in Vlora, looking around, it makes me happy to see everyone is enjoying themselves again.

On one hand I loved playing in the pool, pretending I was a mermaid, on the other hand I got fearful as soon as the water got deeper.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzz… Almost everyone will recognize this sound, and will probably associate it with sleepless nights. Yes, I’m talking about mosquitos! Those horrible, annoying, little creatures that always have it out for you. So many sleepless nights of trying to sleep when you have them buzzing around your ear, or trying to catch them, but they … Continue reading Buzzing
Change of scenery does a lot to a person. Three weeks ago we moved to Albania, right on the seaside. Looking out of the window every morning, seeing the sea and feeling the sunshine really makes us happy. Of course we’re working, but as soon as we are done, we walk out on the roof … Continue reading Easy Hummus (including recipe)
This post will be short and sweet, just like my recipe. Yes, you guessed it right! It’s time for another dessert! After the butter curry, it’s nice to close the meal with a sweet treat!

These cakes are an absolute treat and … Continue reading Chocolate Banana Cakes – Sugar free & Flourless (including recipe)
This post is about my experiences with crypto, the many mistakes I made and how I hope to earn some passive income with it in the future. My first introduction to cryptocurrencies was in 2017.
