Things I like

Chocolate! Belgian chocolate. Obviously.

I discovered a Belgian chocolatier I did not know: Dolfin. I bought two packs of Dolfin chocolate in the Tierenteyn shop in Gent – they sell their own mustard and a few more delicacies. I bought lavender infused chocolate, and cinnamon flavoured chocolate. I have tried a lot of chocolate, but have never tasted anything as fragrant as the lavender chocolate, or as warm as the cinnamon one. Personal favourite: lavender. Really, try it – you only need the smallest amount to really savour it, so don’t let the price deter you:

Gent, Belgium

Gent is a beautiful, atmospheric city that manages to blend the old and the new brilliantly. Go visit, if you can. Sit down by the river with a beer and watch the world go by.

Music

Marketa Irglova has made tons of beautiful songs but let me pick this one, Now You Know,  to introduce to you:

What do you think of this piece of French pop? Still pop, but I am charmed by her pouring her heart and soul out: listen to Zaz

I also like this cover of a Neil Finn song by K’s Choice:
