Lima is not like South American at all

I’m going to jump around a bit here. I owe you a blog about London and Berlin from my summer trip, but I want to get Lima on the blog while it’s fresh in my mind. When I started my three months in South America in Lima this month I didn’t know what to expect. My only experience with this continent was in Medellin. So when I spent three days in Lima I wasn’t expecting it to feel like a gloomy Los Angeles.… Read more

Of Montreal: A recap of my 8 days in Quebec’s Metropolis

I know I’m a little behind on my blog. It seems that a blog once a month is all I can crank out while galavanting around the world. My apologies! We continue with my wonderful 8 days in Montreal in May. My research led me to believe that Montreal is a vegan-friendly city, but couldn’t be anything compared to my love affair with Toronto. Some gems were found, but overall it was the vibe and layout of the city I liked best.… 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

A sampling of my favorite food in Guatemala

My first stop in Guatemala was Antigua. This loud, busy, touristy city is only good for a stop-off of a couple of days at most. It does have cool historic buildings but it’s overpriced and a little too busy than what I was wanting at the time having just come from Mexico City. I found sanctuary at a small hostel called Sangha. They have vegan food, cheap yoga classes, clean dorm rooms, a large back patio away from the street, and nice staff.… Read more

Vegan Street Fair is a vegan daydream

When I saw my friends talking about Vegan Street Fair (VSF) on Facebook and Instagram I looked up flights to Los Angeles. I lived there for 5 years so many of my closest friends still reside there so I welcome a trip to visit them. I was shocked to see flights were under $150 round trip! My flight was bought and off I went a few days before the fair to catch up with friends. I had the most beautiful time in Ojai for a day and my friend showed me all the beauty there: hot springs, hiking amongst the orange groves above the city, eating at the Farmer and the Cook, and watching the sunset at Meditation Mount.… 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
