Sorry for the absence in the past month. I’ve been busy – had friends visiting from the States, and passed my Portuguese A1 exam.

Then a dinner at the ONLY Michelin-starred Japanese/Portuguese restaurant in Portugal, and recipes of course.

I originally intended to write a post about Neuschwanstein. But, due to the pandemic, the number of visitors inside the castle was limited, by the time I looked up tickets for King Ludwig II’s fairytale castle, it’s already sold out.
