Take time to appreciate good food and drink

food

Are you somebody who really savours the food you are eating? Good on you.

People are getting too busy, rushing to get some takeaway, back to their desk, eat and work at the same time. Your brain doesn’t even notice that you are eating. On the way home you might rush again and eat on the go. This is not just unhealthy but you miss opportunities for enjoyment on many levels.

Cooking can be already a joyful experience. I love cooking, it is relaxing and I forget everything else in that moment. There is no need to cook for hours and complicated recipes. There are plenty of quick and delicious recipes out there; so no excuse for saying ‘I have no time to cook’. Make time. If you don’t feel comfortable cooking, just follow some simple recipes. You might be surprised that you actually can cook.

When eating, take your time, enjoy the meal with your family, partner or friends and savour the food.

Life is too short for bad and bland convenience foods. Food and drinks are one of the life’s simple but remarkable pleasures. Choose your favourites, slow down and enjoy.

The local market and silver factory in Cusco, Peru – part 3

Hello lovely travellers to part 3 of my Cusco series.

Before I start I would like to thank our tour guide Alim Escobar from Gadventure who showed us all the beautiful things in Peru, explained all the history and stories behind places, introduced us to the Peruvian cuisine and recommended nice restaurants and what dishes to eat. Even though my trip was last year in November, he is still available and answers all the questions I have. Without him, I would’nt be able to write much about this beautiful country. So a HUGE THANK YOU Alim, very much appreciated. If you are about to book a tour, I really recommend Gadventure, and when you are in Peru and Alim is your CEO, you will have a great time.

So you are in Cusco and ready to experience some more of the things the local do? Let’s go and visit the local market in Cusco called ‘San Pedro Mercado‘:
