I don’t really adapt very well to COVID-19, except when I’m going out and about.
What helps me through my anxiety and fear, is my travel memories … and the foresight for the travelling I hope it’ll be able to do later this year and next year.
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
My mornings today is the same … as before the virus. Nothing has changed, maybe that I appraise more that I’m able to bring the breakfast with me back to bed to watch the first Swedish morning news and CNN.
My mornings … if I wake up!!!! That is the most important thing … but after that, I only have one thing on my mind: BREAKFAST!!!
Especially if I’m travelling.
“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
Normal I stay at hotels where the breakfast is included … but when I stay in apartments, the breakfast has to happen so close as possible to my bed. Too lazy doing my own when I’m travelling on my own.
One of the best breakfast I enjoyed at the little beautiful Cafe Libertas in Gdańsk which I had googled before take off. Only 2 minutes’ walk from my front door. Absolutely superb, both food and service – November 2019
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.”
Free champagne for breakfast???!!!
It happened in Porto last time I visited together with my best friend, Anna Liisa. We rented a fantastic apartment just steps from Cais da Ribeira (the riverfront). There the fantastic Pestana Vintage Porto 4-star hotel served a fantastic al fresco breakfast for 9.00€ just on the edge of the River Douro. Every morning we enjoyed their fabulous breakfast served at the small tables out in the morning sunshine … for my birthday we were served free champagne, but this image is from our last breakfast and again free champagne. A World Class service and food – September 2019
Breakfast in a rush when I visited my friends, Lizbeth and Neville, in La Vila Joiosa, Spain. Scramble egg and green asparagus before my 3-hour bus journey with Exclusive Airport Shuttle from Alicante Airport to Mojácar and 6 days with my friends, Liz and Ian. – October 2018
“There are times when breakfast seems
the one thing worth getting up for.”

And no NYC visit without a great Reuben sandwich. City Cafe on 35 W 43rd St New York, NY 10036. One of those old fashion diners with excellent food, but the worst coffee in the world .… and this was excellent !! The establishment’s description of their Reuben: Corn beef, Swiss cheese, pastrami, coleslaw, melted cheese, and Russian dressing on rye toast. Served with curly spicy fries. – September 2013
“One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast.”
Robert A. Heinlein
This the breakfast I serve myself at home most mornings, maybe not the egg … at all times – Östergatan in Landskrona, Sweden
“I know family comes first, but shouldn’t that mean after breakfast?”
Have eaten 100’s and 100’s breakfasts all over the world, but so fare Seattle served the ultimate breakfast, maybe not the healthiest – but the tastiest and friendly. At “Lowell’s”, Pike Place Market with a priceless view over Puget Sound.
50/50 orange and grapefruit juice
Cappuccino (massive cup)
Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich with hash browns
(grilled sourdough breakfast sandwich Beecher’s flagship cheddar cheese,
scrambled eggs, spinach, tomatoes, choice of sausage patties or bacon, crispy hash browns)
The damage came to $28.00 – in July 2012
