100% nature

29 Apr

Howdy!

We have spent the past weekend in the amazing southwest of France, Gers where our trip first began in 2010. So much has happened since. Its incredible!
Last time we were here was almost exactly a year ago, when we recorded all the vocals for our debut album. Though then it was about -5 Celsius inside, now its a bit warmer and sunnier!

There´s been a new addition to the family : a beautiful foal! We have never witnessed something like that before, waaa! Now, only few days after its birth the foal and its mother are happily running in the green fields.

Manu’s dad Jean Laudic and Anne Gouyon organize camps for kids during summer and if you want to learn more about their project and what happens in their farm you Should really follow their blog L´Aube du Chêne, here http://www.laubeduchene.fr/ and drop them a comment 🙂

Here are some pictures I took with my phone, just so you get a little touch of how it is here at the moment

Where the eagles fly on the mountain high

19 Jan

Bonjour!

Literally, at the moment we are as high as the eagles and vultures live. Surrounded by bears and wolves, at about 1000m altitude next to the mysterious city of Tarascon-sur-ariege, a wonderful couple from England is hosting us. They are doing a beautiful work for the good of the nature; they protect the wildlife. They take care of all kinds of insects, make sure the butterflies have the plants and flowers they need and much much more. Terry has been working undercover as an animal cruelty spy and he wrote two books about his work. A job you definitely don’t see every day. His website is here, take a moment to learn about his projects against animal cruelty around the world  http://www.ruadan.co.uk/

Terry and Denise also host Eco Wildlife Tours, check out their website: http://faunus.co.uk/ Not only they work with these things, but they truly and honestly dedicate their whole life for the nature and animals. Have to say, the world needs these people.

As we drove down here, we passed probably the most mysterious and interesting area in France; Languedoc. That is where Catharism, Secret Orders, Knights and werewolves took place. We walked in Carcassonne, where the history never dies. The castle and the city itself has been kept in such great shape (for all the tourists 🙂 ). From far away ,Carcassonne looks like some kind of Fairy tale!

We are working in the woods and the boys have been cutting big trees down for two days now. Of course I wanted to show the women’s strength and I managed to cut one tree down! Yai! Manu was sick for couple of days but with the help of lemon and ginger he finally got better. Long live nature medicines!

We are working on the Week 12 song + video which will be up during the weekend, so stay tuned!
Until then, be safe and enjoy the days as they would be the most precious ones youll have.

With lots of love,
Eva and Manu

How to make Bread in 3 minutes – Chapati –

13 Jan

Hey,

We just arrived to a new farm yesterday in South France, close to Orange. Like we said we will now start putting on recipes we’ve learnt on our trip.
This first one is a recipe we got from Alba, Italy. We asked our host for some bread and she showed us how to make our own in 5 minutes. Well it is actually more like Naan bread, it’s flat and Soooo Easy to do… they call it Chapati.

For about 12 Chapati, you need :

-Flour (250g or 2 cups)
-Olive Oil or butter (2 or 3 tablespoons)
-Warm water
-Salt to taste

Take a large bowl. Pour in the flour and then make a hole in the middle. Put the Olive Oil or the previously warmed butter and the salt. You need to put quite a lot, as you like. Then add warm water little by little while you stir. It needs to look like a paste that holds together!
Then simply cut pieces and flat them on the table using your hands or an empty bottle. It is best to roll them in Flour so they won’t stick.
Get your pan hot and dispose the flat bread on it without any oil, wait until it cooks to change side and it’s ready to be eaten.
You should be able to do quite a lot of them. It’s easy and very fast.

TIP : Add some Spices, like Curry or Herbe de Provence, Thyme whatever you like !

Here is our video that explains everything !
Stay tuned for the Week 11 video coming out this week end and for more goodies !!

With love,

Eva and Manu
