After my recent visit to Alsace, where I consumed a near criminal amount of tarte flambée, I thought it was high time I learn to make the dish myself.
Tarte flambée is a traditional Alsatian dish is kind of similar to pizza. (Just don’t tell the Alsatians that!) For a little geography refresher, Alsace is a Riesling-filled region in eastern France on the German border. The culture, as well as the cuisine, is very much of the French-German persuasion.Read More
Considering I’m a bit short on photos this week, I thought I would recap y’all on those lofty resolutions I made back in January. Almost six months later, I’m happy to report that I’m doing surprisingly well.Read More
San Sebastián- Basque Country’s most beautiful city, is never more stunning than at sunset, especially from the summit of Monte Igueldo. From there you can soak in the views of San Sebastián, which contain beach and sky and mountains.

Hi! Welcome to My Local Eats, a guest post series in which foodies from around the globe share their favorite local places to eat and drink.
Today’s guest post comes from Agness who shows us what to eat in Beijing. Agness is a Polish vagabond and foodie who blogs over at the excellent budget travel blog, eTramping.

So it’s time for the weekly (or as it has been recently, the bi-weekly) update!
Post-road trip life has been pretty great- namely because spring is FINALLY here in Paris. (And is debatably over after about three days… this heat is starting to feel like summer.) I’ve been extremely busy with blogger events, social outings and just life, I suppose.
