I’m in love!
.. with Sarajevo. Heard so much – yet it took me 32 years to finally get here. We were very lucky to meet with friends and get introduced to locals that made sure we’d have a memorable experience. What a magic place. With such tragic history – yet so lively and – what I appreciate the most – a melting pot of all religions & cultures. You can imagine we therefore loved the food :p.
once i’ll have a big kitchen again i’ll get my pots here!

down and up – and down and up
