I was born and raised in Austin, yet, there’s a part of me that just doesn’t feel like I belong. Which is a bit surprising, even to me. I mean, I’m vegan, I love music, I love quirky vintage things, so what gives? Austin should be a haven for me!
Maybe it’s the surge of people moving in who have changed this city. Maybe it’s the Continue reading →
One of the best meals I’ve ever had was at a restaurant called Vegemiasto in Warsaw, Poland. Completely vegan potato and onion pierogies with a glass of lemonade on the side. Oh my goodness ya’ll… I don’t know how they did it. They were soft and light, not too heavy, but certainly very flavorful and delicious.
I can taste them like it was yesterday! So ever since then, I have been trying to figure out Continue reading →
I’d heard the terms old world wine and new world wine many times before I actually knew what it meant. Was one a medieval way of making wine? Is one just a fancy new technique? Not exactly. Let’s get into it.

So arriving there I didn’t have much to expect. Had I seen the Sound of Music? Well, before this European adventure, no. Funny Continue reading →
I always find it amusing what people associate with different countries. The United Kingdom is reduced to London, France is all wine, cheese, and beautiful Paris, and as of late New Zealand has been known as the land of the hobbits. If you are a fan of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, New Zealand is a must stop for you.
Located just outside of Matamata, a town about 3 hours by bus from Auckland, Hobbiton rests on the Alexander Farm, the last sheep farm in the area. Having seen all Continue reading →
Upon embarking on a trip, I left my friends and family with a promise to tell them all about my amazing adventures once I returned. As I traveled, I would see something and make a mental note to tell everyone about it. How green the trees were in Finland, how friendly the people were in Thailand, and how annoying my roommates were in Prague. Continue reading →
