Three delicious dishes to try in Greece

athens-greece

There is so much to love about Greece.

The history, the islands, the culture, the people and of course… the food!

Honestly, I was a little concerned about the food in Greece because they are known for their love of olives (which I dislike) and their use of feta (probably my least favourite cheese – don’t judge me!). But I soon realized, when it comes to eating, Greece offers one of the most diverse dining experiences and some of the best food I’ve had the pleasure of inhaling.

Therefore, for this Thursday’s Three Things I’m talking about my favourite dishes in Greece.

Happy Hour in Vancouver

There are a variety of afternoon activities I enjoy participating in. For example, a leisurely walk through Stanley Park, some window shopping on Robson, or strolling for goodies through Granville Island. Without a doubt, however, my favourite afternoon activity is grabbing a happy hour drink with friends.

This glorious afternoon tradition is only a recent phenomenon here in beautiful Vancouver. When I worked as a bartender in the city, I remember countless tourists who would wander in around three o’clock to ask about happy hour specials, only to be told, “We don’t do happy hour”. How uncivilized.

One Day in Bologna

Home to the world’s oldest university and famous for its Tortellini, the city of Bologna, Italy has a great deal to offer travellers looking for an Italian experience off the well-travelled path of Venice, Florence, or Rome. But after spending a week in the vibrant city, it is safe to say, that Bologna is “the” city for food lovers.

With a nickname like La Grassa, meaning the Fat One, it’s no wonder I left the city a few pounds heavier and in awe of the culinary experience that is Bologna.

Welcome to my favourite post of the week…Let’s Catch Up!

This week was one of the most memorable of my life for two main reasons. The first, I turned the big 3-0 and the second, I celebrated my birthday in the middle of the Sahara Desert with a Nomad family, during an epic desert tour adventure (but you will have to stay tuned for more on that in the near future).
