So, the journey has come to an end and here I am back at la fin du monde, trying to adjust to reality. It has been a long haul overseas and to be honest its a bit depressing being back, so to combat any negative feelings I am distracting myself by doing creative things and cooking!
One thing I noticed in Europe was that there was quality bread and it wasn’t so expensive to get it, because it was a kind of standard. Here you have to pay about $7 for good bread and its called “gourmet”. So I thought, maybe I should try baking bread myself. I hadn’t made bread in a really long time and had to google some recipes to get an idea, but in the end I improvised my own recipe and made a pecan and date fruit bread.
I arrived in Amsterdam on the 11th June. After taking a crazy flight from Montréal via New York, where I had to change airports, to fly to Iceland and finally Amsterdam. I don’t know if it was worth saving $200!!…but maybe in my case, it was. I am trying to survive Europe on a shoestring…thank god I have friends!!
This is Amber’s beautiful house in De Pijp, a nice sunny day, which is apparently rare here, I am so grateful it is summer!
This track was made during the middle of winter in Montreal, a tough time where you see little sunlight and rarely leave the house.
