During my summer time in Italy, my parents had a chance to visit me on the way back from their holiday in France. We spent an awesome day together, I put some pictures up about that time. I booked a table for us at Villa Gentile where I work and I managed to show my parents how perfect the food is here - even though that they don't serve many meat dishes - sorry Dad! Mainly in this post I would like to tell about my only time making pancakes for my colleagues at Villa Gentile. I have a really, really good recipe from my Dad, no one beats that. I decided to make pancakes as a farewell present to one of the Austrian girls who is going back to home. She only came here for ... read more

On the way from Hungary to Jesolo, I've seen Lignano, Bibione and Caorle - all the artificial towns made especially for tourist - and I was deeply surprised by their look. They are very neat, the houses and flats are perfectly refurbished, there are flowers everywhere. The crossroads are highly visible - not to mentioned the roundabouts! I think they brought it to perfection - some of them are truly works of art! My favorite was the one with a bridge in the middle of it. There was no water running under it which is the point when you build a bridge but let's just skip the functional bits... As I've been told, inside the area of Cavallino-Treporti, I'm living in Cavallino which is less touristy. I wouldn't say it's a sleepy little town as people ... read more

I arrived to Jesolo around 7am, instead of 8am. An Italian lady was supposed to pick me up at the coach station and bring me to Cavallino-Treporti. As I was there an hour earlier, I kept a close eye on the lady, let's call her A. I thought she might turn up earlier. I did see a small Fiat stopping at the parking lot and a lady in her 50's got out of it. She noticed me, the only person waiting there with lots of luggage, and she went straight in the waiting room of the station. At the beginning I thought I don't have a reason to think that that lady is A., as she would have approached me by now. In the next half an hour she cleaned her car in the coach station: ... read more

The thing is that the availability of food here is just so different. You walk into a supermarket or any kind of similar shop in Africa and you can often get most of what you need. It might not be what you actually want but, somewhere, there will be something. You walk into a supermarket or food shop here and you can generally pick up not what you want but what you desire. And, most of the time, you didn't even know it. It is not that we have been in restaurants, bars or bistros all of the time - Pat is still having a bit of a Euro freeze time - it is just the choice available in the shops that is doing the damage, and much of that, to our waistlines.
