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

Travel log: Colombia & it’s many struggles

In November, I started my journey to Colombia in Medellin. Medellin, as the 2nd largest city in Colombia, is breathtaking. This bustling metroplex is buried in a valley so you are surrounded 360 degrees by city views. I think the Paisas (local people to this area) do not understand the beauty that engulfs them every single day. But maybe they do for the torrid past of Medellin is buried deep in their hearts and minds. In general, people of Medellin are kind and helpful.… Read more

On weight gain and yoga

If you didn’t know I turned 37 last month. That isn’t old and it isn’t young. It’s kind of a pointless age really, but a nice right in the middle of my prime kind of number. The more I talk about my age and say/type/read the number the more I get comfortable with it. Because I’ve been struggling with aging (I’ll have to save that for another post!). One number I never rarely pay attention to is the number on the scale.… Read more

Travel log: Bangkok isn’t that bad!

The last time I was in Bangkok over 5 years ago it was dirty, smelly, crazy, loud, you constantly got harassed on the street, and ripped off. Just take a look at this travel log from October 2010 of my first impressions. When I stepped out of the airport in Bangkok this time no taxi drivers swarmed me. I wasn’t greeted with the symphony of horns beeping and “taxi, taxi, need a taxi miss, where you go miss, taxi, taxi”. Military rule might not be good for everyone but it is great for tourists.… Read more
