First Impressions: Athens, Greece

I try not to have expectations when I visit a new city or country. I might have had some expectations when I came to Athens. A old friend was going to start a restaurant and buy property in Athens and got me excited that I might be able to buy an apartment too. I’m very interested in real estate investing and apartments are cheap right now in Athens. It would be easy to buy something and rent it out to tourists on Airbnb.… Read more

Travel log: Toronto takes the lead of favorite vegan city

I struggled for many weeks to find where I wanted to visit in May. My birthday was on the 13th and I ached to be amongst friends rather than be in a city all alone (per usual when you solo travel the world). Never having been to Canada, I decided Toronto would be perfect. I had friends there, many who I met years ago at conferences/vegfests and kept up online friendships with for years. Nicole (A Dash of Compassion) kindly let me crash with her and I didn’t have to spend my birthday alone.… Read more

Travel log: Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and it’s Traditions

The first week of March I took Spanish classes in San Pedro at Casa Rosario. I got to know the traditional Guatemala way of life through many conversations with my teacher and doing a homestay with a local family. It was so interesting, this exchange, where I learned about their religion, family, traditions, diet, work, income, common activities in San Pedro, and more. I couldn’t have been more different than them. Like the complete opposite. Lake Atitlan is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.… Read more

Mexico City is a vegan mecca!

As we vegans like to do, every time I travel to a new country I’m planning my days around where I will eat. I research and star all the vegan options I can find from the internet and HappyCow on Google Maps. Pro Tip: Did you know you can see all your starred places on Google Maps even when you don’t have internet? It’s the best! As soon as I arrived into the city I was ready to eat. I walked around to a few places I found on Google Maps that ended up not being closed.… Read more

Travel log: I Heart Mexico City

I was going to do this post including food but decided it needed it’s own post! When I visited Mexico City in February I kind of fell in love. The weather was just perfect at that time; cool nights and mornings, with a nice sunny 70 degrees during the day. I love wearing layers and not sweating while hustling around town so this trip was a dream come true. I only spent 4 days there and felt like I could have stayed many months.… Read more

Reflections on 2016 & my new experiences

In 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions for the new year. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, New Experiences came to me. On my blog I tell you all about my new experiences for the year. Many of them are fitness/adventure related like the two featured today. We are closing in on the new year already (omg!!!) and I’ve done a very poor job keeping up with my blog and sharing my new experiences with you.… Read more
