How do you deal with stress? Pre-travel stress in particularly?
I must admit I don’t do too well ;) So instead just relaxing and enjoying the most beautiful Indian summer, I can feel how my muscles clench.
It’s ridiculous. I’ve been traveling enough to have an idea what to pack, how to pack and how to get around. I’m not traveling alone this time and still, there it is this uneasy feeling a few days before travel.
I did three loads of washing, stared into my mobile, stared into my iPad, did yoga, stared out of the window, changed Spotify playlists million times and still didn’t find the right one to fit this mood, chatted with a friend, read what to wear for a long flight, even though I already know. Sigh… Finally, I came to conclusion to try to do something more useful, so I’m writing a post for you.
Chanterelles are called in Polish – kurki (chicks), but in Ukrainian, they are called lisiczki (foxy ladies). Both names remind me of children stories and magic. They are delicious as well, although hard to clean. Anyway last weekend I had a treat, chanterelles with scrambled eggs and on the toast. I couldn’t decide what to eat first :o
