A few words about 2019

It feels like nothing is changing – again. From day to day, our actions appear to be identical. We as people appear to be identical. Slot us into a Myers-Briggs category, slap on an attachment style, and there you go. A human. Like so many others. With the same fears and hopes and dreams and […]

A few words on 2018

I’ve been writing these reviews since (*checks history*) 2009. And although I don’t quite feel like writing a review this year, I suspect I’ll regret breaking the only tradition I seem to hold on to, at some point in the future. I’m doing this for you, future-Evija. So here we go. As years go, it […]

A few words on 2017

First of all, this is not a review where I will state once again how much I travelled, all the people I’ve met, new experiences etc etc… This, my friends, is an inner monologue. Without a red thread. Reading some of my older reviews, while thinking about the last 365 days, I found two things […]

A few words on 2016

46 days in Montréal

I barely want to write about Montréal. Out of pure fear. Fear it will become like New York or London. Or that bar I went to in Prague 4 years ago. Where the raving reviews became the end of it. I mean, it’s still there. Thriving revenue wise. But the soul is gone. Yet I feel […]

Montréal: Week 1 in food

Le Bier Markt  This downtown spot ticket all of our boxes: great atmosphere, extensive beer and – behold – cider menu, and the FOOD! Oh the food. The smell itself got my knees weak. It’s like a classy sports bar but with waitresses in short dresses. Despite their silly uniform, they were really nice. Bless […]
