It has been quite some time since my last fitness post. The main reason for that is that I simply don’t work out as frequently anymore and it feels wrong to me to give you guys tipps on how to stay active, while I am kind of struggling with it myself. Life has been super busy lately (which I love) but I’ve rarely seen the gym and only run about 2-3 times/week at the moment … However, after I posted this photo of myself on Instagram wearing a bathing suit during our vacation on Kuramathi Island I received a ton of emails, asking about my fitness and diet. While I wish I had the time to always answer all your emails, I simply don’t but sincerely hope this post clears up a few of your questions.
Mike and I both have an insanely large appreciation for good food, and while we love cooking together on the weekends, we also love to experience really special and one-of-a-kind meals at restaurants. When I think about all the amazing dates we’ve been on, our dinner at Nobu in Dubai is definitely the #1! It was a super spontaneous decision but we loved every second (and course) of the experience. At all the Nobu restaurants they have something called “Omakase” which translates to “leave it to the chef”. Basically it is a tasting menu with some of the signature dishes and is made my the chef without you knowing what you’re getting. At the Dubai location they have 2 different Omakase options, one includes the typical Nobu dishes (like the amazing black cod miso), and the other includes a few Dubai specialities. We got both and shared everything, that way we got to taste typical Nobu AND the Dubai signature dishes. I lost track at one point, but I think we each had around 10 courses, one better than the other!
After going through hundreds of photos, I finally put together a little collection of our trip to Dubai this past week. We had 5 full days and I still feel like there is SO much we have yet to see. But since Mike and I both loved the city, we’ll be back for sure and we’ll hopefully be able to cross off many more things on my personal Dubai-To-Do list :) Here is a little run-down of our first 3 days spent in Dubai …
These past few days here in Vienna have been surprisingly warm and sunny – you could almost call it a little preview of summer. And for summery days I love a yummy gold drink with a splash of citrus, so I’ve been making this super easy homemade lemonade almost daily. Again, not really sure this post deserves the titel “recipe” since it only requires mixing a few ingredients with no measuring, weighing or things of that sort involved. But my cooking (and drink-making) is usually all about easy “recipes” and working with ingredients I have in the fridge, since I mostly just throw together a few things I am craving at that moment. This lemonade was definitely a favorite from the past week, so I wanted to share it with you. And if you’re looking for a refreshing cocktail for your next date night at home, girls get-together or BBQ, this also works great with a splash of vodka – just sayin’ :)
