  • Varanasi

    My recent pilgrimage that I like to call In the Buddha’s footsteps wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Varanasi, a small town situated in the second poorest state of India, Bihar.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog about food, traveling, and life abroad.

Even though I like to wander the world, I have found a temporary home in the Himalayas. If I’m not walking my two dogs in the mountains, taking pictures, or experimenting in the kitchen, I’m studying Buddhism or writing a new article. I hope that my blog will make you forget about your daily worries and let you daydream a bit! 😉
I look forward to your comments, questions, and feedback so don’t hesitate to drop me a line…
Make yourself at home!
With love,

It took ridiculous amount of green tea to finish this blog. Inviting me for one cup would really show your appreciation. Thank you for that! 🙂
