Our friend Teia, has spoilt us many times with his homemade hot smoked salmon. I remember the first time he made it for us; Guillaume and I felt like it was a bit of a revelation. It’s something we quite often purchased pre-made, but when you taste the homemade version… well it really is something else.

In the weeks leading up to leaving for my European backpacking adventure, my friend Lee, whom I was travelling with with told me that she was reading this incredible book. I told her that I was reading one also. It turned out that we were both reading “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
