I had the privilege of spending my last day backpacking Europe in Lucerne, Switzerland. This small gem of a city has breath-taking views everywhere you look: Snowy mountains, the shiny blue water of Lake Lucerne, and adorable Swiss Architecture.
This past summer I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Berlin. Well, I fell head over heels in love with the city! From the rich history of the wall and Brandenburg Gate to the up and coming vibrant neighbourhood of Kreuzberg, Berlin really has it all.
And of course, Berlin is a vegan paradise! It’s obvious why Happy Cow listed it as one of their top vegan cities in 2017. Whilst in a week it wasn’t possible to try every eatery, I definitely made a good attempt. What’s more, for a capital city in Western Europe, Berlin was surprisingly inexpensive!
When I first told my family that I was going backpacking around Europe for the summer on my own they were worried. This is a natural reaction from parents and who loves you and want you to be safe. The once in a blue moon horror stories on the news of solo travellers going missing, and picturing their little girl in a hostel full of strangers wasn’t so comforting. At the same time, they knew it was going to be an incredible experience, a much greater adventure than staying in our small English town. It was perfectly acceptable for a guy to go off and travel the world by themselves, but not for us girls? Being a bit stubborn, and fuelled with the inspiration and advice of my fellow travel bloggers, I headed to the airport.
It’s a brand new year and that means it’s time to make some resolutions. For many of us this involves getting healthier, losing the pounds put on over the festive period, and to be a better person all around. Honestly, I can’t think of a better way of reaching these goals than simply deciding to go vegan.
Each year the charity Veganuary get more and more fabulous people to try a vegan diet for the month of January. Whilst it’s only a month, so many vegans say they could never go back after switching their diet. Here are some of the top reasons why veganism will change your life this year:
I’m so grateful that you’ve stumbled into this little corner of the interwebs, a journal if you will, to document a life of travel, veganism, and living with intention.
This summer I’m graduating from university and honestly, my greatest fear is an average life.Instead, I invite you to come along as I join the ever-growing number of millennials giving the middle finger to ‘normal’ lives. Think digital nomads, tiny houses, world travel, and living a life that resonates.
