Waffles in Athens

Cds IMG 3540

When we ordered a waffle on Monastiraki Square in Athens, we didn’t quite expect to get a plateful of mini-waffles. But since we were sharing it, it worked out quite well. They were excellent, just the thing to tide us over until lunch after a long walk through the city.

Those of you who know me know that carbs are very low on the list of things I eat. But sometimes you just have to have some! And when I do, I make sure it is worth it. There are lots of waffle shops in and around Warsaw Old Town Square, and when I walked past about the 5th waffle shop I realized that this was one of those “I have to have one” moments.

And it was good…very good. A freshly made waffle covered in fresh cream, chocolates and nuts. I’m glad that the day before I did a 22k run around Warsaw, because I am sure this contained more calories than I burned off on that run!

Zakopane’s cheese

Zakopane there are small cheese market stalls, selling an amazing smoked cheese from the region. The salty cheese is called Oscypek, and it is mostly made from sheep milk, but also from cow and sometimes goat.

It is great on its own, but even better when they heat it on the coals and serve it with a little cranberry sauce. You can buy just one or two pieces of the cheeses, or buy a big block to take home. We did both, but when we arrived back in Cape Town all our clothes smelled of smoked cheese…

Warning: it is very addictive.
