How great have the Easter holidays been! I can't believe it's been a week already! We enjoyed wonderful weather, sunbathed under the warm sun in our beach wear, and basically pretended it was summer. I already mentioned in my Vietnam trip post, just how much Liam enjoyed the sand, and he finally got to touch it again! In fact, he went as far as eating it. Before I knew it, he was enjoying a mouthful of Mediterranean sand! >.<

I know we went to Hong Kong and Vietnam just a couple months ago, but I already feel like traveling a lot. I'm currently organising a trip for next month, we're going to Vienna! If anyone has any tips, they will be most welcome.

Anyway, today I basically wanted to show you a new discovery I made during the holidays: Granel. We found this perfect shop that sells all kinds of nuts and cereals in bulk, all in cereal dispensers, in the town next to our summer house. We thought it was new and the sales lady told us they had been open for a year and a half, ha! Admitedly, we hadn't been there for a while! I loved getting to see all the products exposed in cereal dispensers all over the wall, and get to fill my paper bags with the ones I finally decided upon. I bought some very yummy crumble for my Açaí Bowl, since I'm determined to make one at home! Ever since I first tried it at Flax&Kale, I've been totally addicted to Açaí Bowls, and I think it's time for me to try to make it by myself, basically because they charge you 8€ at Flax&Kale for it!

Granel has several shops in Spain, and an online shop, too! Enjoy :)


  1. I was in Vienna last month visiting a friend. I defnitely recomment Cafe Central. It is a traditional viennese coffee house. They have tons of great cake and also the "normal" food os quite yammie. Another place to visit is Schönbrunn castle. They have a really beautiful garden and I would say it is even more beautiful than in March as the flowers start to blossom.
    Hope you have a nice trip there!

    1. Yay, thanks for the tips! I think I've been to the castle actually! I've been to Vienna once but can't remember much :)

  2. Hola Xènia! Estem com tu, el meu marit està boig per l'Açai des que en va menjar a Bresil fa uns anys. Hem trobat uns quants llocs que el preparen a bcn però no he vist on comprar la fruita fresca per fer-lo a casa. Tu saps on en tenen? Thanks!

    1. Hola! Quan vaig anar a Flax&Kale, vaig demanar d'on era el seu, i és de www.acai.eu, però no veig que es pugui comprar a Espanya! Un altre que en ven és brasfrut.es, aquest sembla que aquí sí, però encara no m'han respost sobre si en venen a particulars! Si ho esbrines, si us plau diga'm-ho! :)


Thank you for your comments! I truly appreciate them!
