Food and drink - Sophie’s World Travel Inspiration

Ljubljana, Ljubljena – the beloved

Ljubljana with Veronika A book about suicide and madness, about shocking someone into wanting to live by convincing them death is imminent. Oddly, Veronika Decides to Die most of all made me want to see Ljubljana. Nearly 20 years later, and seemingly random, I'm on [...]

Café Gerbeaud: Sumptuous sweets and magical mood in Budapest
