Having to work and study at the same time doesn't allow me to read as much as I'd like to. It's one of my favorite hobbies and I intend to do more book recommendations/reviews on the blog. So far I've only posted about meeting my favorite author: British writer Ken Follett.
There are so many reasons why I love San Francisco, I'd need several posts to explain them all. The main reason is its variety. The city by the bay is the epitome of the melting pot. A walk around some of its neighborhoods will make you believe you are Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days.
In honor of Saint Patrick, which is celebrated on the 17th of March, this is going to be Irish week on the blog. We are going to kick off with a recipe I brought back from Ireland. If you follow the blog you may know that I've lived in different English speaking countries. I spent my Erasmus year in Ireland. If you don't live in Europe you may not be familiar with that term.
