Spread the Love

December 31, 2014

I can't believe we are saying goodbye to 2014 already. Time flies. New Year's Eve is the day when we look back at what we've accomplished during the last 12 months. We also think about the good and not-so-good things that have happened. I try to stay positive and only think about the memories I'll cherish forever.

'Tis the season to celebrate and to be among your loved ones. Since this only happens once a year, we need to make the most of it. Personally, it's my favorite time of the year. Today I'm sharing with you the photos of the Christmas' Eve celebration at my aunt and uncle's house.

Christmas decorations Sao Paulo, Brazil

Our next stop in Christmas Around the World is São Paulo, Brazil. This trip was the first and only time I've been to South America. It was November 2011 and I went there on a business trip. I couldn't explore the city as much as I'd have liked to since I had to work. Fortunately, my driver was kind enough to take me to the must-see locations in between business meetings.

Christmas decorations in Dublin Ireland

In 2006 I was living in Dublin thanks to a Erasmus grantThis was my first long stay far from home. For those of you who don't know, Erasmus is a famous scholarship granted in Europe to students who want to spend an academic year in another European university. It is a great opportunity to explore different cultures and to improve a second language.

Christmas San Francisco

From L.A. we are traveling north to our next stop: my dear San Francisco. One of the many beauties of the City by the Bay is the variety and richness of its neighborhoods. You can cross a street and feel like you are in a different city or even a different country -this is especially true of Chinatown.

 Christmas decorations in L.A., California

The merriest season of the year is upon us and in order to celebrate it on the blog I'm going to do a series of posts about Christmas in different cities. I've spent Christmas (or the weeks around it) abroad several times during my life: California, Sao Paulo, Dublin or Belgium have been some of my destinations.

Basel Switzerland

These images remind me of warmer and less stressful days. If you've been following my blog you'll know that I spent part of my holidays traveling around Switzerland. One of the stops on the trip was Basel, a less known but equally beautiful city.

Sweet du Jour: La Cure Gourmande

Biscuits, sweets, food. Gift holidays.

La Cure Gourmande is a sweet shop I came across recently. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you are going to love this. The first thing that struck me was the store, it is so colorful that it makes it impossible to pass by without going inside.

Spinach raisin and pine nut quiche recipe

Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend. I was wondering earlier if it was a good idea to post a recipe today since some of you may still feel stuffed after the Thanksgiving feast. In the end I could not resist posting this savoury pie.
