LitsianaDoesBerlin/ part1

Dear Diary,

Kalo Pascha!
Today is Good Friday in Greece and I am home miles away from home...
It`s the 3rd Easter Holidays that I`m away and it feels bad... 
The good thing is that I am on holidays; the perks of working at a Greek Academy!
So, I spent 3 wonderful nights in Berlin!
It was a last minute decision that my bestie Xenia and I took so as to see each other in the half way.
She from Greece, Larissa and I from London reunited in Berlin!
Not bad at all, huh?

We first went to our lovely hotel in Alexanderplatz and from there we started our wonders!
We explored the area around the hotel; ok, we did get lost to be honest while trying to find the Branderburg Gate, hahahaha. But we saw impressive structures that warmed us up before the main attractions!
After the Gate, we went to the parliament aka Reichstag. 
We walked a lot so as to find fooooood since we only had breakfast back in our countries...
Food in Berlin is so hard to find especially on a Sunday afternoon.
Finally, we found the best place with a view to die for; Berlin Cathedral in sight but, the kitchen was closed coz it was 6 o`clock.... So we fooled our hunger by having a cup of fresh mint tea, coffee and delicious desserts, oh and by staring at the view!
Afterwards, we bought some souvenirs form the official Ampelmann shop. Ampelmann is the East German pedestrian traffic light symbol born and bred in Berlin released by Karl Penglau  in 1961.
Despite the desserts we had, we started feeling hungry so we took the way back to the hotel in order to eat FINALLY something. Next to our hotel there was a huge pub full of people eating, drinking beer and dancing. We indeed entered the pub and we had so much fun there!
I had beer for the first time and I actually liked it!
Day 1 was completed with success!

Day2 will be soon up on the blog!
Till then,
smooch smooch!

it`s breakfast time!

Dear Diary,

Goooood mornin`!
Today is Thursday and the weekend is around the corner.
I love weekends and especially Saturdays.
For numerous reasons.
One of them is because I can wake up anytime I want without setting the alarm and I can cuddle in my bed until I cannot bare it without food anymore, lol.

And then creativity starts in the kitchen.
My happiness on a Saturday morning depends on a leisurely breakfast.
I`m not in any rush as I normally am during week days and I can enjoy any bite I take. 
I definitely have a hearty breakfast before kicking off my weekend.

Pancakes is something I starting having here in London and this year I `ve been eating so many of them as I`d never done before...
I don`t add sugar while making the pancakes at all. I use the very basic ingredients;  flour, milk, and egg. 
Adding sugar is pointless for me since I always accompany my pancakes with spreads or fruits; both sugary foods. 

I also like pastries and cereals.
I want a variation regarding my weekend breakfast since it`s a treat to myself for the hard work done during the week, lol!


Don`t forget tha saying:
" eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper".

Have a lovely day, muffins!
Kiss kiss,
Queen (of breakfasts) Litsiana K.
