When the organization that runs Belgium’s largest vegan festival asked me to come speak I jumped at the chance. I’ve never been to Belgium and needed to get closer to my 50 before 40 goal (Belgium was my 46th country visited). Ghent (or Gent) actually has a good reputation of being a vegan-friendly place. In 2007, the city started Donderdag Veggiedag, where every Thursday the whole town goes vegan and restaurants started offering more vegan options on their menus. That’s pretty exciting!… Read more
When I was in London in the spring I had this crazy idea to get together a bunch of vegans to do a vegan food tour of Camden. Two people happily volunteered for a lunch date but it wasn’t enough people, time, or stomachs to try all the options. There’s just too many!!
We decided to narrow it down to the vegan places only but still there were too many. So we started in KERB market, which is it’s own contained area with food stalls and many tables.… Read more
Why I chose to go to London in the longest winter they’ve had in years I do not know. I showed up in March in a snowstorm and there was another one a couple of weeks later. Even when the weather is shit you want to have a life and get out to explore. It can be rather uncomfortable so I made a list of things to do if you happen to visit London during horrible weather or you plan to stay there anytime between October and March.… Read more
I’ve been traveling for the last 2 years (since March 2016!!) and have found more places I didn’t care for than winners. When I came to Cyprus I wasn’t expecting much and kept my expectations low.

That is what I got in Cyprus but I was won over in the short amount of time by the weather, peaceful vibes, and amazing vegan food.… Read more
I know I’m really behind on my travel blogs! My goal is to get caught up over the next few weeks while cat-sitting in London. And yes that London post is going to be epic. Last time I was in London I didn’t eat any good food and this trip I’ve been eating all the delicious options!
So let’s cruise back to February 3rd when I moved from the US with a big suitcase and no plan. Like I officially moved (don’t have plans to go back) but I’m still traveling the world.… Read more
I still owe you many blog posts from each place I visited in 2017 but thought I would highlight my top experiences and food with you today. I can’t believe I went to 11 countries and over 45 cities!! It was an amazing year. Don’t get me wrong; there were many struggles but the good outweighed the bad. I’m not stopping anytime soon.
Just in case you never read the reasons why I’m traveling check out this blog. If I’m being honest, one reason missing from that blog post is I was totally sick of the hustle.… Read more
