Ever since I experienced the wonders of the Northern Lights in Tromsø, Norway a few years ago, I have been longing to go back. And I had been planning to do just that this March, but last minute my plans changed so instead of -30C, I’m traveling in +30C weather today! 🙂
I highly recommend late autumn or early spring in Tromsø, Norway. From Tromsø it’s an easy drive to several picturesque sites along the coast or over the mountains to Finnish lapland. Norway gets the Gulf Stream, so their winters are 10-15C warmer then they would otherwise be, so it is one of the more comfortable places to view the Northern L…[Read more]
In 2011 I traveled with my father and my kids on a road trip around his native home of Morocco. Today, I found myself reminiscing about our time walking around some of the souks and medinas we visited in Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakesh, and Essaouira.
It really is. So much of what makes Morocco so special, are the beautiful colors, designs, and textures you see everywhere from their narrow markets, to their building & home designs, to their colorful traditional clothing. And the tastes of some of their local grown vine ripened produce, with some those spices on top of couscous, alone is a treat…[Read more]
Hi @travegetables, we really enjoyed the beaches, food, and temples during our time in Phuket. But this was part of an extended 4-month trip so we didn’t really spend any time exploring any of the local markets.
Throwing Back to 2010 when we celebrated Thanksgiving in Pacific Palisades, California with some lovely animal rights / vegan activists, along with a couple of rescued turkeys. Our host graciously saves and welcomes 2 turkeys into her home every year to help focus media attention on their plight.
The legacy we pass on to our children and future generations is determined by the choices each of us makes everyday. Those of you who know me, know that Hillary was not my first choice. The decision for this staunch Bernie Sanders supporter, came down to a choice between a hateful xenophobic narcissist, verses a well intentioned yet flawed…[Read more]
This beautiful moment is from two special people who have grown so dear to my heart – Cody and Giselle of Mindful Wanderlust. Two personal role models, whose daily lives show us all how to live more compassionately!
For my first contribution to this Throwback Thursday group, I thought it most appropriate to go back to 2009 when while traveling with my daughter, she convinced me to go vegan. We had an amazing adventure, and I am forever grateful to her. <3
A little over a year ago VeganTravel.com went live with the goal of demonstrating to the world how easy it is to go vegan and live more compassionately. To achieve those goals, we started our Vegans Around the World contest. Dozens of ethical vegans entered the contest, and three incredibly ethical, talented, and passionate teams won. Their…[Read more]
Alan. There are no words to express our gratitude. Thank you for welcoming us into the vegan travel family. Thankful is an understatement. So much love for you Alan and the entire vegan travel family! Thank you for making me whole! There’s nothing more I want in this world than compassion, and thanks to you we all get to spread this compassion worldwide!
@codyk; @lifestylewithme – thank you for your very kind words, and you are so very welcome. I feel so fortunate to have had to opportunity to get to know compassionate people like you and all our collective team members during these past months. I feel like I have known you all so much longer <3 <3 <3
@alan Thank YOU for your amazing work and for bringing us all together. Oh my gosh, I still can’t get over how amazing the past few months have been. You and the entire VT team are literally changing the world (and the lives of your contest winners) by doing what you do, and by being some of the most compassionate, humble, and generous people I’ve…[Read more]
Thanks for pointing that out Cody and I totally agree. I also really hesitated about sharing that photo. Unfortunately the word pig is frequently used that way. And we were grateful to Roger Waters when he devoted his entire 11-minute “Pigs” song to Trump. During the song, the screen was filled with some of Trump’s more infamous racist & sexist…[Read more]
Must have been fun! Given their history, I’d imagine the Beatles would still be huge in India. I thought my days of big concert events was long past, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see 6 of my favorite all time bands/performers. One small regret is that Robert Plant turned down a huge financial offer to reunited Led Zeppelin at the…[Read more]
We vegans do take a lot of food photos, don’t we? 🙂 Thinking of how many cameras we had out during our meal at Kopps in Berlin comes to mind – was it 7 or 8 cameras? 🙂 Taking food photos has been a frequent part of my dining experience as well ever since I went vegan. But aren’t we all looking forward to the day sometime in the future when we…[Read more]
Thanks Saundra. My favorite way to explore and really get to know a city is on foot, so I’m wrestling between what I love to do, and trying not to do any long term damage. I just have to keep reminding myself that I can always see more next time 🙂
