Clapham WC

What a fun weekend! On Friday I met with two friends for dinner at Campania & Jones before heading over to dance to some electronic music at Oval Space. I didn’t know the DJs (it’s not my kind of music usually) but it was lots of fun. On Saturday Michael and I went to Clapham to have brunch. As we decided to walk through the park first it was a bit late for brunch afterwards, so we went straight for wine and snacks at WC – a super cosy little restaurant/wine bar in a former public toilet (hello quirky London!). Unfortunately they don’t serve hot beverages, so instead of a Cappuccino I had to do with an Espresso Martini haha. In the evening we (7 girls!) joined in for the craziness at Elysee, a Greek restaurant near Goodge Street where you get to smash plates and dance on them, and guys, listen up, there is also a belly dancer!

After spending a three days in Pula we were headed to Slovenia where our road trip would finish a few days later. Rather than driving straight from Pula to Portorož (our first stop in Slovenia), we decided to split up the way to have lunch in Rovinj and then visit the Kozlovic Winery during the afternoon. It turns out, this was an amazing decision :) We had such a lovely time in the beautiful town of Rovinj and the most perfect setting for a wine tasting at the Kozlovic winery. Also their wines were really nice. I especially fell in love with their Malvazija wines. Too bad they don’t deliver internationally yet, else this would be on my wine order list for summer :)

The winery offers 9 different wine tasting programmes. We had a guided walk through all the different stages of the wine production process and visited the wine cellar before tasting 5 different wines on the terrace. Each wine was accompanied with a new selection of matching nibbles.

We had an early start on Sunday to make most of the last day of skiing. Half of our group already finished around noon after which Michael, Paul and I headed over again to ski down the black piste. This one was even more fun than the day before as it had snowed more over night and there was lots of new snow on the slope. I didn’t know that powder-skiing is so much fun! The bumpy,  steep part of the black piste was like a playground where almost everyone who decided to ski down, slipped as least once. Yet falling down was like landing on a soft pillow so it wasn’t too bad after all.

Back down to the gondola station

Doesn’t this village look gorgeous? I’m not used to have a lot of snow at home (especially not in London!) so I couldn’t get enough of this view and had to stop on the side of the slope to take loads (!) of photos :)
