Sea and sun

It was a very cold winter in Chania, with a few sunny warm days as an exception. If I knew it, I wouldn’t have gone. I would have chosen to go somewhere else or I would have stayed in Vienna. Because at the end of the day, why did I go to Crete? What was I looking for? Sea and sun…Ok, and a few sunsets : )

BEST COFFEE SPOT IN CHANIA

Best Coffee spot in Chania: Kross coffee roasters

Just behind the Municipal Market, it is conveniently located for a quick refreshment or to linger a while and people watch. A charming little coffee shop on the edge of the old town. Popular with the locals too, rather than a tourist haunt.

There are three of them in Chania Town. Check the exact addresses on their website.

Charlotte aux fraises

I celebrated my birthday in Chania. Like last year. Ria, my favourite Chania based pastry chef, made this Charlotte aux fraises for us. We have the same birthday, so we celebrated this year and last year together. We did nothing special, our day was nice and calm. We went to a lovely restaurant which recently opened for the summer season and had lunch there. Afterwards, we came back home. There were not many options left because of the freezing cold outside. To be honest, I was expecting a better weather for my birthday in March. Nevertheless, I am feeling grateful for the chance to celebrate my birthday in Chania once again and for this delicious Charlotte aux fraises.

Pottery: how, when and why

Pottery: how, when and why

I started experimenting with clay during the first lockdown in Vienna. It was a way for me to entertain myself at home, as I spent all the lockdowns alone …

I bought clay and started with making ring holders using my hands. When the lockdown was lifted, I searched for pottery courses in Vienna but they were all fully booked. I remember how desperate was I for not finding available courses loI…

One day I accidentally passed by a new pottery studio, which happened to be in my neighbourhood, and asked firstly if they offer lessons, and secondly if there are available places. This is where and how I had my first official lesson on the wheel.

Months later I came to Chania for a two months stay. This is where I got really lucky with pottery because the ceramic studio was 2 minutes away from the apartment I was staying at and ceramic courses were offered in my mother tongue!! This is where I really got to learn working on the wheel. I posted the lessons on my YouTube channel if you’d like to watch. Overall, I created 9 ceramic pieces and practiced a lot. The ceramic pieces in the photo are my favourites from what I created so far.

For the moment pottery is my hobby. But I find it so fascinating and I hope I will continue to play with clay and create beautiful things, that I can then give away to friends. Also curious to see how this new hobby will evolve for me and where it will bring me in the future…
