Banana flour? Try this at home – I mean kitchen ;)

I bought the banana flour in Ubud, Bali. I am not very confident when cooking with gluten free flours but I read that banana flour is very similar to white flour. 

So Here they are – my first totally gluten free crepes! 

Check the recipe below. 



The recipe

  • 1 cup of banana flour 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • ca. 1,5 cup soya milk
  • 4 tablespoons oil

Mix all the ingredients, if the batter it too thick – add more milk. Crepes absorb oil – make sure you put enough on a frying pan. Serve with your favourite fruits, maple syrup or like me: 

  1. Chokeberry Jam
  2. Peanut butter
  3. Honey
  4. Bali Coffee

Cold, running nose or sinus infection? Try horseradish!

My latest discovery may sound a little unbeliavable but It is 100% true.

It is simple and really cheap. To get rid of a cold, running nose or sinus infection you just need one think – fresh horseradish. 

The instructions are simple – take a big horseradish root, peel it and grate it

Well For sure you will cry, like when cutting onions, but that’s necessary for your sinusem to cleanse. 

Voila!

Let me know if it worked for you. 

Rio de Janeiro – why I fell in love with this city.

I was in Rio 5 years ago – in 2012 with my sister. It was our first holiday together and for her also a dream coming true. I krew she wanted to go to Rio de Janeiro so as soon as I saw really cheap tickets I texted her. We decided to go in one or two days. πŸ™‚

You probably wonder why I liked it so much. First of all….

  • I loved the architecture – a great mix of modern and colonial style 

  • The fact that wherever you go you can see the Jesus statue

  • You have lake, ocean, mountains and beaches in just one place

My top attractions:

  1.  Escadaria SelarΓ³n

Famous steps connecting both the Lapa and Santa Teresa neighborhoods. We stayed in a hotel about 20 meters from them. 
You can see these steps in this music video πŸ˜‰

2. Jardim Botanico

Beautiful botanic garden- quiet and peacefull. 


3. Hawaianas shop 

I love Hawaianas – they are great quality – I still have those bought 5 years ago. The shop has lots of models with designs you probably won’t get abroad. 


4. Sugarloaf

Take the cable car to the top of the mountain. It’s not cheap but absolutely worth it. The view is just stunning. 


5. Christ the Redeemer


Expect crowds and an hour or more waiting. I liked the view over the whole city. 

Enjoy Rio!

3 places in Bali to escape the crowds!

What stroke me the most in Bali were those crowds and lots of tourists. I did like Bali but I’m not a fan of too many people in one place. 😜

Luckilly we managed to find nice spots which were peacefull and quiet. Here they are:

  1. Taman Ayun Temple

It is a beautiful temple complex in a heart of Mengwi village – it is said to be a village but for me when I drove a Scooter felt like huge city with no traffic lights. πŸ˜‰ It is situated in a nice garden with ponds. Almost no one there!! I think, counting me and my sister there were in total around 10 people. Admission fee if I remember correctly was around Rp. 3,000-4,000.

We got there after visiting Tanah lot as we wanted to see some quiet place. It took as around 30 minutes on a scooter. There are really nice views on the way.

2. Toya Devasya Hot Spring

After trekking Mount Batur all we needed was a hot bath and our little dream came true – on our way back to Ubud our driver was so kind to take us there (though it wasn’t on our itinerary).

The entrance is Rp. 180,000.

3. The Blanco Renaissance Museum in Ubud

The only people in the museum were me and my sister. πŸ˜‰ To tell you the truth, I like such crowds 😜

At the entrance of Blanco Museum there is a marble sculpture, 15 meters high. 

Inside you can see Blanco’s amazing paintings, collages and illustrated poetry, together with lithographic artworks. At the rooftop nive view at Ubud area and also more sculptures.

Testing new yoga mat from Yoga Design Lab

Santa gave me the best gift ever!

 After 5 years – since I started yoga – I changed my mat. And that is a change with a big C. 

The mat looks exactly like on the pictures at the website – YogaDesignLab.


It is a travel mat so you can not only roll it but also fold it. It comes with a carrying strap. It’s super thin and can be used as a towel or on it’s own. I used it on a wooden floor and was too thin for me, maybe it is a matter of time and I will get used to it, my old mat was really thick.


The mat is eco-friendly, biodegradable, recyclable 100%, it weighs only 900g. Also you can wash it in washing machine. 

I will update this post after using it more.

For now – enjoy your practice!
