A new month has started and I belive this month will be at least as exciting as the previous. But also more restfull and rewarding.
Photo from the David Guetta show from Utopia festival yesterday.
The month has already got off to a good start. Yesterday I went to a music festival called Utopia and I got to listen to a lot of good music and enjoy the good mood in the beautiful sunshine. Today is as bright as yesterday so after a nice breakfast I went for a good walk and went to vast my vote for the general election early since I will be enjoying myself in Crete on election day. I am very much looking forward to this trip as I did a smilar one last year and it did wonders for me.
Going back to this later this month
Work will also stay interesting this month and I will also be enjoying some good social time with friends. Sure it will be busy, but I hope I will gather the energy for the whole autumn on my sunny vacation.
Hope September has a lot of good things in store for all of you too!
Black vanilla ice cream was all the rage so I tried a scoop. It was quite tasty.
In Vilnius I had a lot of very tasty food. Some of ut I tried just because it looked great, but I also wanted to try some propper Lithuanian food. It has a lot in common with it’s Baltic contries, Polish, German and Ukranian.
Ordenary and rhubarb lemonade
Cabbage soup served in a bowl made from rye bread
A sampler of a lot of different potato dishes. Potato pancakes, potato dumplings, Cepelinai fried and boiled and potato sausage
A lot of the Lithuanian food is quite heavy and not the tings you usually would choose on a hot summers day. Especially the potato dishes is quite filling, when served with sour cream and bacon. Potatos and pork is a lot of their cuisine.
I also tried some borcht the nice beetroot soup. And quite a lot of the Lithuanian beer, that did the trick in the heat.
One evening I got a really nice guinnea fowl, but the stuff at the resturant was very snobby.
At the wedding I opted for the duck
Not too far from our summer-house is a small town called Jørpeland. This is where we usually go shopping when we are on vacation. This year I decided to go for a walk on a small Island here that was just connected to the mainland by a walking bridge.
The weather wasn’t the best, but mostly it was only a slight drizzle. Luckily I had my rain gear on so I got to enjoy the nice new walking path out there.
There is an artist that makes nice tree sculptures that has made a lot of nice pieces for the park on the island.
The nature around the island is quite nice and there is always something beautiful to look at.
I’m just back from spending some time at our summer-house. Enjoying a most needed vacation. The weather has mostly been wet, but I had a few regent days as well.
