Iron Maiden in Lisbon concert 2018

This is my third time attending an Iron Maiden concert. With over 18000 screaming and exciting fans just waiting for Bruce Dickinson’s preaching to begin. The smell of weed was present, check! Lots of booze going around, check! Gals flashing their boobs, check! However, apart from one, or two chicks with really nice pairs, I…

Danish “Flæskesteg” recipe…

“Flæskesteg” is a traditional Danish dish and a compulsory element on Christmas Eve, or throughout various lunches leading up to the festivities. The cut of the pig derives from either the neck or back. It is imperative you get a cut with the skin on. I suggest a piece of about 1.5- 2 kilos. There…

Sailing along Sesimbra coastline

At the foothills of the Serra da Arrábida, a mountain range between Setúbal and Sesimbra lays the small fishing village of Sesimbra. During the summertime, this place is amazing to explore because it is cozy and the area is tranquil. Not to mention the variety of fresh seafood available. The water around the shoreline is crystal…

Anthony Bourdain dead at 61!

I just received this shit news less than two hours ago. I am speechless because I had the pleasure to meet Anthony on a few occasions on his “No Reservations” before he later went on to work with CNN. Most notably his Lisbon/ Ericeira trip. He was a character, a real New York “bad boy”…

Roger Waters’ concert “US + them” tour Pink Floyd

I am writing this section during the intermission.  I am currently outside the grand Altice complex, and the atmosphere is beyond unbelievable. I am sitting right next to the stage, and Roger Waters is just a stone through away from me. It is completely packed in here, and the crowd is a mixture of young, middle-aged,…

University, or not? My story

A little introduction, as to why I raised the question “University, or not?” I attended a family gathering at an ex-girlfriend’s house. All very nice people, but I got a way of getting myself into “faux pas” situations. You see, it was the first time around I met some of the family members so I…

Chocolate fair in Óbidos…

Although the weather was pretty bad, the fair was extending. Óbidos is an absolute gem. The small village is stunningly beautiful, and the chocolate fair is without a doubt the most beautiful in the world. It offers so many amazing handcrafted culinary pieces and is something which must be witnessed to understand. Set inside an…

The Godfather orchestra with movie

I love the Godfather trilogy. I love the whole history of “La Cosa Nostra” and sure it is heavily romanticised. However, I am writing some articles on this subject and will post in the near future. Now, it is time for Giovanni “Nino” Rota to shine, as he composed the soundtrack for the first two…
