An autumn-break travel to Spain, tips and tricks

Hi Kiwis,

just today we are come back from our first real vacation since i live in Germany. It have been a hard step to reach but at the end we have got it and we have enjoy it as much as possible. Finally a new country visited, a new land to scratch on our world map, new culture, language and food discovered. A new puzzle piece that is now part of our life experience and memories.

I have a premise to do. This travel lasts just one week but we lived it so intensively, we have done so much things that i can’t find a solution for describe all that in one single post! If you are a Kiwi reader you know i write a lot, i have always love it, this time i took over 1000 photos just with the camera, it wouldn’t be possible!

So let’s hurry up and start with it! ūüôā

Our travel was principally divide in three steps: Girona, Barcelona and Valencia. Three towns on the east coast that distinguish themself quite a lot. Traveling from north to south you could step by step aperceive the differences and the cultural changes. Continue Reading

Sud Tirol, here you will fall in love!

Hi Kiwis,

I avoid it, i missed it to tell you my adventures but even more i¬†couldn’t wait anymore to tell you about my trip to S√ľd Tirol.

As you probably already peeked the topic, we are talking again about mountains (what else?!). Where i bring you today is a¬†special place for me, the¬†place where i nearly was grown up.¬†I visited it so many times per year when i was younger, my family loved it. Such places are soul¬†warming for me when i return.¬†For make a comparison is like drinking a warm Gl√ľhwein in the middle of a snowy forest.

S√ľd Tirol, is difficult (impossible i would say) to find words enough good for describe it.¬†Here we are, in Italy, in the middle of Dolomites,¬†in one of the parts of it i judge as the most wonderful.¬†Here the time it seems never pass, even not 20 year later! Continue Reading

In few words, i have find a new Job, a full-time job that permit me to use my capabilities and make me feel a complete person. A full-time job as known bring always positive and negative things in the life.¬†One of these negative is clearly that the time for dedicate me to Creative Kiwi is drastically¬†decreased.

Don’t worry, the Kiwi project will always go further! ūüôā

How to do the Kiwi-Apple Marmalade

1 – Remove the¬†Apple and the kiwi skin and then cut the apple in little pieces (from 1 to 2 cm maximum). Keep in mind that the kiwi must be mature or the marmalade will result very sour. For understand if the kiwi are¬†mature, just touch it and¬†if it feel a little bit soft – not too much – that’s the right time to use it for this marmalade recipe.

2 РNow put all the fruits in a big pot, add the juice of an entire lemon, half glass of water, half tablespoon of cinnamon and finally the sugar. Mix it all very good and let it inside for a couple hours covered with the top of the pot.

3 РOnce this time is passed start to cook slowly the fruit. Control it from time to time and when the fruit is become soft, break the pieces helping you with a wood spoon. If you want you can use a hand-mixer until you create a well mixed kiwi-apple cream.

4 РPour the kiwi marmalade inside the sterilised jars and wait around 15 minutes before close it. Once close turn the jar upside down and wait that it become totally cold.
