VEGAN BUCHAREST: MY RESTAURANT GUIDE

28th May 2017

VEGAN BUCHAREST

Bucharest is not vegan-friendly at first glance. I’ve seen more animals grilling on a rod in my short time there than I thought was possible in a lifetime. But whenever I wasn’t able to make my own way to some of the vegan restaurants scattered across town, for every something impaled on a stick, there was always an assortment of delicious dips (didn’t know baba ganoush was such a big thing around here!) and pickles to eat alongside bread. That’ll do.

The best hotels and hostels in Jerusalem

18th May 2017

best hotels and hostels in Jerusalem

Whatever your reason to visit Jerusalem, I assume you like to sleep, sometimes. So here’s the good news. No matter your budget or your taste in accommodation, Jerusalem has it all. Recently, a few designer hostels, or poshtels, have sprung up, and these are excellent if, like me, you like beautiful spaces that cater for a slightly more mature audience (read: not party animals). I stayed in a few places during my trip to Jerusalem last November and visited many others and wanted to present you with what are, in my opinion, the best hostels and hotels in Jerusalem. A little bit of something for everyone I hope. But before we cracker on, hummus ask you a question (har har): have you checked out my Jerusalem vegan food guide?

Vegan Jerusalem: my top 10 spots

2nd April 2017

vegan jerusalem

I visited Jerusalem very briefly a few months ago with the lovely bunch from iTravelJerusalem as they were getting ready for TBEX, but I had just enough time to explore the amazing vegan food of the city in my time there. If you imagine a vegan visit to Israel as being a hummus-soaked escapade, you’d be imagining correctly! In what’s said to have the most vegans per capita in the world (I was surprised to read that!), being vegan in Israel is falafelly easy and utterly enjoyable. So without further ado, here are the ten best spots I found for a vegan grub in Jeruz. Yayay, Vegan Jerusalem!

Supplements that Really Make a Difference

23rd March 2017

Supplements sometimes get a bad rap. A lot of people think that they are nothing more than ‘expensive pee,’ but the fact is that there are many supplements which can have immense benefits for the average person. The trouble is separating the effective ones from the duds. Although there is no way I could possible go through the thousands of supplements available, I have been able to identify some supplements that really do make a difference to anyone who is trying to live a healthy lifestyle. Check them out:

Ibiza, Party Paradise or Vegan Yogi Heaven?

7th March 2017

Holiday destinations acquire stereotypes, just like the travelers who go there become known for their nationalities… and the stereotypes that go with those. There are also the standard things you do in every destination. You go to India to do a Yoga teacher training, to Iceland to see the Blue Lagoon, to Turkey to go to a Hamman and get butt naked… you get the idea.

A Month On Canada’s Raw West Coast

13th February 2017

Canada has never been a country that has shied away from its wildness. It’s unapologetically untamed and the perfect place for adventure, a bit like Iceland. Temperatures here are frighteningly low in the winter, but regularly go above 70 in the summer, thanks to a warm Pacific breeze.

If you go there, you have to go for at least a month, usually longer. The reason is that the place is just so big. Western Canada is about the same size as the whole of Europe, and so there’s plenty to explore and do.

Jerusalem Travel – My Top Ten Things to Do

12th February 2017

dome of the rock

Israel has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember, and last November I finally got to tick it off. Unfortunately, it was just a brief week-long stint in Jerusalem thanks to the wonderful iTravelJerusalem and the #TBEXJLM press trip. What a week though! I met an inspiring group of travel bloggers, and got to explore Jerusalem. A blend of old and new, and a city where three ancient religions collide and continue to live alongside one another, it’s somewhere quite unlike anywhere else I’ve ever traveled to.

Holiday Muscle and Fitness: Forget Your Worries Not Your Workout

10th February 2017

Building muscle is universally agreed to be a good idea – on that we can all agree. Strong, healthy muscles allow us to move comfortably and take advantage of everything the world has to offer. Without good muscle and core strength, traveling extensively is almost impossible. Getting among the scenery and really taking it in means you need to be up to a long hike.

All things considered, you have to be fit to flit around the world.

Searching For Serenity: Top Five Wellness Retreats In Europe

10th February 2017

We all need to take time for ourselves as people away from the rat races of our jobs, away from the pull of paying bills and sometimes, away from our families. We take care of everything in life from our budgets to our bairns and sometimes we end up at the bottom of the list of care. This is not good, not acceptable and absolutely not sustainable. Around the world, there are yoga and wellness retreats dotted in beautifully peaceful locations that allow us to get back some of our soul serenity. Finding the time to go and visit any one of these retreats is important: your health, your wellbeing, they’re important. Have a look at our pick of the top five wellness retreats in Europe, and give your soul a little peace and care. And while you’re at it, treat yourself to a professional limousine service on the way out. You’re worth it.
