Hi friends! Exactly a year ago we visited this fantastic place called Bubenheimer Spieleland. This is a perfect destination for kids of all ages and believe me parents will enjoy too. We tried almost everything, kids enjoyed so much and they cried when we said we need to go. First we explored the outdoor area and later explored the indoor area. If your kids are hungry there is a place where you can buy food & drinks. In this video you can see most of the outdoor part such as slides, adventure park etc.

Candida diet food: Gluten and sugar free

Candidiasis is an infection caused by yeast called Candida that normally lives on and in the body and causes no harm. It can cause an infection in certain conditions - when the skin is damaged, when a child has a weak immune system. Medicine with antibiotics ( antibiotics for ear infections) can also cause the yeast to overgrow. This is because those medicines kill normal bacteria that usually prevent too much yeast to grow. My younger kid has Candida right now and I need to prepare him food without sugar or white flour. 

Things to see and do near Podčetrtek, Slovenia


Coming to Olimje, one can hardly miss Olimje Monastery one of the biggest tourist attractions of Podčetrtek.  This former castle was built in 11th century and inhabited by the Pavlin monks in 17th century. Nearby there is a Church of the Assumption one of our country’s most beautiful baroque buildings, and pharmacy,  the third oldest monastic pharmacy in Europe. 

Easy and quick croissants that you will adore 

healthy snack for kids

These mini croissants are a perfect appetizer for a homemade brunch or a last minute dinner. They’re really very easy to make. As usual my kids were involved in the process every step of the way. Seeing how happy they were helping me, going around and saying I helped mommy to make them and I put sesame over it makes my heart melt. Mini croissants are perfect for kids birthdays, I noticed kids gladly eat them and my kids always ask for more. If you love croissants, you must definitely check recipe for  black and white croissants , they are a bit different and very tasty. 
I can’t wait to hear how you love them!

Things to see and do in Vienna during Christmas

When we decided to visit Vienna our only goal was to enjoy in beautifully decorated town & Christmas markets. We spent 3 days exploring Vienna at Christmas and sadly 2 days traveling.  Since we are Orthodox (we celebrate our Christmas in January) the best decision ever was to travel back home at January 25th. The roads were empty , we arrived home in 4 hours! And since our Christmas in not yet let`s say: Frohe Weihnachten! Which means “Merry Christmas”. If you are curious to see how Vienna looks like during holiday check our vlog from Vienna.

Timeless Monschau village - The Pearl Of The Eifel

Currently updating!

Monschau is a small historical town in Germany, in the Eifel mountain range, a place where time seems to have stood still for over three centuries, situated just 2km across the Belgian border. A friend recommended me to visit Monschau as I asked her what near Nideggen is worth visiting. It is only 30 mins by car  from Nideggen where we stayed for 2 days. Narrow cobblestoned streets lined with half-timbered houses, romantic lanes, medieval walls makes this town a perfect place for rest.  I noticed on some houses Christmas decorations even though it was middle of May. It wasn't crowded with tourists as I expected so I managed to take a lot of photos. I will highlight top things to do in this cute little town.
