Some of us have the dream of living in an island with an endless sunshine and pristine waters. I had that dream and finally made it come true last year by moving to Tenerife. It’s been one year and a half since I moved to the largest island in the Canary Islands. Moving from a big city like London to an island brought many changes in my life, some good, some bad. Discover in this article the pros and cons of living in Tenerife.
If you think London is a boring city, because of the grey and foggy skies, that means you haven’t experienced the fun buzz of London town. There is so much to do and visit in London that it can be hard to select all activities and places to enjoy the city to the fullest. In order to help finding the best activities, I selected four that during holiday season will make you forget London’s lousy weather: Fairgame, Afternoon Tea Bus London Tour, Winter Wonderland and The Tina Turner Musical. Let’s have fun, shall we!
Tradition is best celebrated in special dates like Christmas, where the table is filled with love and food. In Portugal, where I am from, Christmas is a moment to cook our best and most traditional recipes. Besides codfish, because there isn’t a Portuguese table at Christmas without codfish, there are other dishes that also celebrate the Portuguese culture. One of them is Lagareiro Octopus, an oven dish served with roasted potatoes and a very tender octopus. In this article I bring you this recipe and also another one, which is my favourite Portuguese delicacy for Christmas, Pumpkin Cakes. Merry Christmas and Bon Appetit!
