I wish I could tell you that spring has finally arrived. But at least I can tell you that we had our first travel experience this year! Adventure for us throughout the winter mostly meant exploring the best places to drink hot chocolate in Budapest. We think we’ve done quite a good job, still it didn’t feel like a real adventure – that is not so cosy and comfortable.
Visiting a new city in a new country felt way more exciting. We could hardly wait to spend a long weekend in Copenhagen in the middle of March. Checking the weather forecast cooled us down a bit. But since we already had our air tickets, we packed our warm clothes and decided to embrace whatever we get… And those frosty but sunny days in Copenhagen flied by too fast.
Highlights of March
Copenhagen. We’ve fallen in love with Copenhagen! Not just with particular buildings or streets but with the city as a whole. (Okay, we also fell in love with four of its wonderful royal castles in particular.) We’re writing a post right now where we try to put together our feelings and first impressions of Copenhagen – you can read it soon!
Chilling out in Palatinus Spa, Budapest. Budapest is most probably the city that has the most spas all over the world. And winter is probably the best time to enjoy them. Our friends at Spabook organized a tour series to explore the spas of Budapest and the first event was at Palatinus Spa. We spent a fun Friday night there trying out the new indoor pools, saunas and the open-air thermal pool.
The first snowdrops. Finally. FINALLY. We found these beauties in a park in Copenhagen. (In case you don’t know, we’ve started searching for the first snowdrops already in mid-February. They are lovely little flowers and also the messengers of coming spring, as they are among the first flowers to bloom, sometimes even before the snow completely melts.)
Our favorite new recipes from March
Last month I told you we don’t like cakes in general, still we keep experimenting with new cake recipes. Well, exceptions like the Perigordine Walnut Cake make it worth! It’s just perfect. 🙂 (We found this recipe in Hungarian but here’s a short video about how to make it if you’re interested.)
But to our great pleasure, we found some new favorites among healthy recipes, as well. They are actually very simple to make. One is chicken stewed with Brussels sprouts and served with roasted almonds on the top. The other one is salmon. We like it very much “a la nature”, still we can’t get bored experimenting with spices and sauces to serve it with. This time we cooked a sauce made of green onions and sour cream and it was delicious!
