“Look at all the healthy food Berlin has!” Said no one ever.
I realised at some that what I’ve been writing about Berlin, and not only but also including the vegan scene, has been totally hedonistic. Vegan burgers, all the fast food, clubbing naked and plain just getting naked. I’ve done a pretty decent job in my now five years in Berlin, I’d say. But Berlin is not just that, I promise you.
There is no way you could make a round of all the best places to visit in India in one single trip. For once, India is a massive country and chances are you don’t have half a year to dedicate to the top 10 places to visit in India (I may be wrong, mind me). But for that exact same reason, India is spread across four different climate zones, making some areas not so ideal to visit at certain times of the year. So I’ve enlisted the help of my trusted fellow travel bloggers to help you (and me) discover not only which are the top places to visit India and the most famous tourist places in India state wise, but also when the best time is to visit each of them.
Berlin frenz, if we’re going to put on the quarantine fluff, might as well do it with delicious vegan food with the multiple take away Berlin options.
There’s nothing funny about what’s happening right now. I’m assuming it’s no news to you that the virus Corona was born from the animal trade. COVID-19 is life-threatening but is also changing lives. Poor conditions for animals have in recent years caused a rise in diseases spreading from animals to humans, otherwise known as zoonotic diseases. With its origins in a wet meat market in China, my only hope now is that it’ll prompt some people to go vegan.
Although leather has been a vital material and resource for thousands of years, we now live in an era where cruelty-free alternatives are readily available — in this post, we’ll learn more about vegan leathers, veggie leather, or faux leather.
No matter what your stance is on veganism or the importance of cruelty-free practices, it’s impossible to argue that animal leather has not been an essential resource for humans going back as much as 7000 years. But this is 2021, and the technology and creative use of recycled materials have allowed us to seek and implement cruelty-free alternatives.
Europe is a magnet for travellers from all over the world, and for vegans, it definitely deserves the title of meat-free mecca continent-wide. The same is also true for travellers and those on vacation who just want to eat healthier, and do their bit for the environment and animal compassion. We don’t all have to tuck into steaks all the time, and you too can embark on a travel odyssey as part of your exploration of the mighty continent of the most vegan-friendly cities in Europe. Being a vegan in Europe is definitely easy!
You might have noticed that things have gotten a little weird over on Instagram recently. If you haven’t, well it is time you do be in the known. Someone mentioned to me there was some sort of a celery juice UTI movement happening unbeknownst to most normal people, one of the purported claims being that it could be beneficial to those with chronic urinary tract infections. UTIs are not really something I’ve talked about here, but they are a very annoying real part of my life. In the last few years, I’ve grown to be resistant to several types of antibiotics and spent hundreds of euros on natural remedies and potions of all sorts in the hope of curing this rather annoying condition. And I know A LOT of women relate to this.
Getting started with yoga can feel overwhelming — there are so many amazing teachers, studios, online yoga courses, and, if your budget permits, IRL yoga retreats to learn the basics. But I honestly think the best, most accessible, welcoming — not to mention the cheapest — place to start with yoga for beginners, is at home with some good ol’ Surya Namaskar… trust me, I’ve tried pretty much every style and platform of yoga going and home practise and self-guided learning is the most effective.
I meant to write this Veganuary tips article a long time ago, but here I am, a few days before the new year and the beginning of Veganuary. Oops. If you’re taking the 30 day vegan challenge and going vegan this January for the now-famous Veganuary, congrats on this new beginning. You will never regret this.
Have you become so passionate and dedicated about yoga that you now wish to turn your passion into a career by taking a yoga teacher training? I can’t blame you, been there, done that. I did my yoga instructor training in Goa, India, back in 2015, and although I took a different path after and did not end up teaching, it was truly a transformative experience. I highly recommend anyone to take a yoga teacher training (and a silent retreat!) once in their life!
If you loved Berlin for all its dishevelled and raw charm and have been told countless times “this ain’t the real Germany”, consider yourself in luck, as there is another little slice of imperfect paradise waiting to be discovered less than 200km away! Leipzig is neither the Germany these people are referring to — and you will love it. In fact, if you are not a big fan of big bustling cities, you may love Leipzig even more than Berlin. And vegan Leipzig is a treat to be discovered.
