This is a feeling I know far too well.
A couple of days after arriving in Melbourne I got the flu. Or I think it was the flu, but being in Bali it could have been Dengue fever which would have sounded far more exotic.
I was so sick and staying in an Airbnb room. After 3 months of hostels, this sounded like a fantastic idea. I’d get a routine, some normality, a wardrobe to hang my clothes in…
But I was stuck in my sick bed, and homesickness came rushing in like a tidal wave.
ALL I wanted was to just go home.
How can you thrive and eat foods when you’re not only vegan but gluten intolerant/ celiac?
A couple of years ago, before choosing veganism, I discovered that I’m gluten intolerant. Going gluten-free made a fantastic difference to my health, and let’s face it, it’s not hard to find the free-from section in any supermarket these days.
Upon deciding to fully commit to the vegan lifestyle, the doubts about how difficult it would be to eat out, find my favourite foods and manage the sheer palava of this change crept in.
I’m not going to lie and say it’s a breeze, easy peasy, but it’s much easier than you would think. With some planning, you can totally do it!
Travelling is one of the beauties of life, getting to experience exciting new foods and cultures. However, if you’re vegan travel can seem a little tricky; think navigating language barriers and cultural differences! You could end up ordering the steak by accident or living on salad.
It doesn’t have to be like this though! With a little thought and planning, you can happily eat your way around the world.
