So I’m a little late to the party, we’re already 13 days into 2019, but better late than never right?
Right now I’m in Chiang Mai Thailand. Whilst it was tempting to stay back home in the UK for New Year’s Eve, I knew 2019 needed to start in a new place, with a brand new perspective.
Do you ever find yourself in a city that just seems to connect to your soul more than others? That make you feel at home? Budapest is one of those for me and I can’t wait to go back some day.
Before coming to Budapest I’d researched where to find great vegan food in the city; turns out there are tonnes of vegan and vegetarian places to try! Here’s the low down on where you need to try…
I’m going backpacking, what do I need to take??
Sure there are the basics like a sturdy backpack, clothes and toiletries. But, whether you’re interrailing around Europe or off a gap year adventure, there are a few travel hack items that you’ll be so glad you packed!
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.
Last summer I was still in university but had 3 whole months of downtime before the dissertation began! Backpacking was the plan, but I knew I didn’t have the funds saved up for a long trip.
