8,501.08 km


On Friday last week I got an email with really exciting news. It said that I'm nominated for an exchange semester in Victoria, Canada. After one month of interviews and countless hours of panicking and hoping the good news finally reached me!!
So in about 7 months I'll be moving again, 8,501.08 km across the Atlantic Ocean to a small city in British Columbia called Victoria. I cannot wait until this adventure starts. What courses do I want to take? Do I need a new passport? Where do I have to apply for student housing? There are a thousand questions in my head, but what is more, I am genuinely happy! I cannot put in words how much I'm looking forward to this time.

Cozy Winter Season

Days are getting shorter. Nights are getting longer. Time for snuggling up in your favorite pyjamas and grab a good book or magazine and roll up on the sofa. Or catching up with all a tv-show over a cup of tea. Or simply enjoying lazy weekends with your loved one.
And where better to do that?

Coconut Curry

I might not have a lot of free time at the moment, but there is still time for some cooking! So I tried my first curry one evening.

Ingredients:
200g of boneless skinless chicken breast
200ml coconut milk
coconut oil
1 red bell pepper
1 red onion
1 clove of garlic
1 handful of sugar-snap peas
3-4 tsps of red curry paste
2 tsps of curry power
salt

1.
First cut the chicken breast in pieces and put them with the minced garlic, the red curry paste, the curry power and some coconut milk to create a paste that covers the chicken - set the mixture aside
2.
Cut the vegetables. In a non-stick pan on high heat melt the coconut oil and then fry the chicken. Then add the vegetables and fry quickly.
3.
Poor in the coconut milk and let it thicken up.
4.
Season if needed with salt.
5.
Serve with a portion of jasmine rice.
