Pastéis de Belém – sweet delights from Lisbon/Lissabon/Lisboa:
Mom traveled last week to honor my little sister achievements. Not being there we were still lucky to get a great dessert when we picked her up from the airport. Pastéis de Belém, a dessert/sweet made unchanged since 1837. Not just the nice wrapping of the dessert, the taste was great. Hard to imagine how they tasted when they came out of the oven and being still warm.
Here you get the stuff:

Thorogood moc toe boots, rapidly vintaged in 3 month:
Received these nice boots about 3 month ago and using them mostly outdoors an now since a couple of weeks on work with the boats they had to withstand a lot. As a friend from Damn yaksays “treat them like you hate them”, they will only look better. Check out their look when they were new and decide for yourself.Thorogood boots new.
A great new T-Shirt “Ecole Maritime” arrived on Friday. Thanks to Eric from Life Time Gear for pointing me in his article to this company. Fatboy Clothing is a small brand in France which put in a lot of manual labour in their T-Shirts with nice designs and details.
Vee´s Cafe and Cakes – munich / Vee´s Kaffe und Bohnen (und Kuchen).
A true jewel and a coffee to stay place I decided to share with you today. In Munich right behind the Viktualienmarkt there is Vee´s, a great place if you need a break, a good coffee and a good piece (or two) of cake.
With what to start? Vee Tismer and her husband are not only roasting superb coffee she is also a master of amazing cakes. On the 7.2.2007 I bought her book “In meinem Paradies steht ein Backofen” – “In my paradise is an oven to bake cakes” by Ulrike von Jordans. The book is full of great images and recipes and more than worth to buy. The spirit of the book is really showing her passion about cakes. If you are too lazy to bake them by yourself you can have a variation of them daily baked at her cafe. A true insider and it never failed to even impress friends who live in munich.
