The goldfish wish

After a rainy day with great landscape colors of Sarajevo, looking forward to a cosy night within the vintage decorations and ambience of Zlatna Ribica, meaning “goldfish”, a small pub like cafe in Sarajevo with creative vintage decorations and drinks.

Driving from Belgrade to Sarajevo-taking almost 6 hours by car, is a journey full of great views, fresh ambience with live colors of trees and mountain reflections on the calm lake!

And now time for the gold fish after some rest, as the entrance of Zlatna Ribica suggests;

Little Prince in Rome

If you’re in Rome and love original champagne coctails, accompanied by live jazz music in a lovely decorated place, definitely a stop-by.

Just ran into this ambiance while wandering around the narrow roads behind Piazza Navona, suggest you to do so -better finding a little prince coming from the sky when you just feel lost 🙂 and celebrating the moment with great friends, cheers!

the heart of the sparkling wine, Epernay Champagne!

1 hour 10 minutes train runaway from Paris and you’re in the heart of the sparkling wine..This trip is to Epernay, the capital of Champagne region in France, where you will have an astonishing atmosphere of champagne boutiques, bars and mansions of the leading producers, for which you can arrange guided tours to visit.

Once you enter the town, you pass by the magnificant mayor building, which is actually the old building of Moet & Chandon, see the town hall and come to the beginning of an endless road of “champagne houses” – L’Avenue de Champagne..

You taste the noble ambiance of the “champagne houses” once standing at the entrance of Avenue de Champagne. Champagne houses stand for the many leading champagne producers that are lined on each side of this street as magnificent 19th century mansions. Below the street of these mansions lie a world of millions of champagne bottles. While walking through Avenue de Champagne, you pass one by one the headquarters of leading producers and you actually walk over the stored champagne bottles of Moet & Chandon, Mercier, De Castallane and so on.

First Moet & Chandon’s Dom Perignon welcomes you. Then all the leading producers come one by one as you pass by magnificant mansions with famous labels.

Suggest you to check the availability and open times of the champagne producers for arranging the champagne tours because not all of them are open all weekdays! You can find the necessary information below:

In my daily tour I visited the champagne cellars of Mercier. Going down to the cellars with a panoramic lift, a train vagon takes you to the champagne bottles beneath the town!

This is the world’s largest wine barrel that carried an equivalent amount of 200.000 bottles of champagne to Paris, for the World Trade Fair in 1889.
     Santé! 🙂 Cheers!
