Apple Skuta Cake (jabolčna skutna pita)


Inspired (also) by Quint’s post on the Portuguese sponge cake, I baked this apple “cheese” pie last night. Skuta is a type of cheese kind of like cottage cheese but so much better in pies. This was the no. 1 item I missed among food supplies whilst living in Luxembourg. Anyway, here comes this morning’s breakfast.

OK so the kitchen remodelling project is not quite complete yet as I’m waiting for my wallpaint guy’s leg to heal so he can come finish the walls and give them a paint job, but hey, the kitchen is back in action 🙂

Lead the Way



Before You Can Lead
You Must Learn how to Follow

The inscription above the arch is part of ‘Hebrews 13:7’ in German: “Remember those who led you”

Shine a Light



“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
~Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

New Friends Rock


Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting Raf at the Ahráyeph concert at the Lido in Leuven, Belgium.

Out of Darkness!

Let it Out


What a great guy!
Note: He even mixes a fine daiquiri.

You might at times be able to find him at the Bar 33 in Leuven (Eng. Louvain), the cozy and picturesque capital of Flemish Brabant a short drive from Brussels.

Cocktail Time

The 33 is part of the longest bar in Belgium, which is composed of roughly 40 bars at the Oude Markt (Old Market). It rolls alternative rock music and while – obviously – serving good beers and other drinks including good whiskey, offers excellent cocktails at friendly prices in an equally friendly environment.

Smurf & Jan
Proud owners of the bar who’d just taken over a month ago. I’ll have to go back just to see what more they’ve done with the place! I’m sure it’ll look great!

EDIT: Here’s a clip from the Ahráyeph concert:

MusiCard from Antwerp


I’m back from my little trip around Luxembourg and Belgium. I had a wonderful time visiting with old friends and making new ones. I have quite a bit of material to share. Here comes the first tiny bit with more to follow when I have some time to work with the photo and video files.

This interesting instrument sounded lovely (in front of a historic church) in Antwerp, Belgium. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.

Enjoy 🙂

Swan Lake?


Greetings from Luxembourg, everyone!

Here are just a few photos from Lake Zbilje back in Slovenia, taken last weekend, to keep the blog going at least a bit. Lake Zbilje is just a 10 minute drive from Ljubljana towards Gorenjska region and a lovely place to relax either on shore with a nice drink or ice cream and crepes or by taking a boat out for a row.

Is that pretty or what.

Somebody’s been here…

On What Really Matters


A short video clip from the Cow Ball in Bohinj last weekend.



A full report from the Cow Ball in Bohinj will follow, but here are a couple of photos to start with.

Some things are bound to change…

Modern Cowboys

…but thankfully, some will always stay the same.

Neverending Story
