Tallin, Estonia

 

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

Vegan Travel Tips

I get a lot of questions about being vegan when I travel. “Isn’t it hard to find vegan food?” “Is it really worth the hassle?” The truth? It’s not too hard to find vegan food if you don’t mind foraging grocery stores rather than restaurants and as any other vegan can tell you, it might be a hassle but we’re not going to eat meat so just drop it.

Airport

Anyway, so how do you find vegan food when you are traveling? Let’s start in the airport. More often than not you will always find vegan options here, whether it’s fruit, Continue reading

Chaos in Bangkok

Bangkok.A charming city filled with engine exhaust, construction, noise everywhere, lady boys charming you on the corners, and delicious (although sometimes iffy) street food everywhere. Oh, what an exciting place it is!

My first taste of Thailand started off as I got off of my plane and proceeded towards customs. There were no lines, only people standing in one noisy and crazy mess. I looked around at all of the signs, one saying to check in before customs, another saying customs. Where do I go? What do I do? Which line? Where is the line? I thought to myself, wishing that my friend whom I was meeting there later was already with me. My normally cool and calm nerves getting more and more anxious as the amount of people around me grew thicker.

Feeling Homesick At Home

When people ask me if I ever get homesick while traveling I always answer yes but… I don’t want to go home. It’s a funny situation for me where I miss my family, I miss my friends, I may even miss some of the things about my home city. I mean, Austin is an amazing city!

But there’s still this feeling where it almost doesn’t feel like home and I can’t exactly put Continue reading

Happy Birthday To Me, Whiskey

I’ll be honest you guys, despite being a born and bred Texan, there are a lot of stereotypes that I don’t fall under. For starters, I’m vegan. I don’t hunt. I’ve never ridden a horse. And I don’t own a gun. (Although my family has quite a few).

But there is one stereotype that I fall in with, and that’s a love for whiskey. Give me a good ole’ bourbon and sweet tea and I’m one happy gal!  Continue reading

My Favorite City in Poland | Gdańsk |

wp_20160725_024-2If you read my last post on Poland, you will know that I absolutely loved this country. It’s rich with history yet thriving and on the way up with so much opportunity, not to mention absolutely gorgeous!

During my almost three week stay, I visited three cities; Krakow, Warsaw, and Gdansk. While each one enchanted me in their own way, one truly took my heart. That is Gdansk.  Gdansk is a small coastal town in the northern point of the country along the Baltic Sea. It’s most popular among Polish, Russian, and Balts, as a nice little beach getaway during the summer, which means English is slightly harder to come by but you can still get around. Continue reading
