Road Trip: Cruising the East-Coast of Spain

3rd March 2018

Planning a trip to Spain? Great choice, but where to go?! This perfect road trip takes you down along the Spanish East Coast. Starting in Barcelona, a beautiful city with lots of diversity. But that’s not the only city you have to see… Ready? Buckle up and let’s go!

Start in Barcelona

The number one place to visit is (of course) the Sagrada Familia, the holy cathedral by Antoni Gaudi. The building isn’t finished but it will be in 2026, on the 100th anniversary of his death. There are so many famous landmarks in Spain that are worth the visit. Gingerbread houses, a magic lizard and mosaic benches are some of the Park Guell’s architectural flourishes. This is also Gaudi’s incredible work.

Youth Mobility Visa Germany: My Experience

25th February 2018

Youth Mobility Visa Canada Germany

When I decided to move from Asia to Europe, I didn’t know where I would base myself. Most Working Holiday Visa (also called Youth Mobility Visa) for Canadians end at 30 years old, but a few European countries offer them for people aged up to 35. Upon doing some research, I found that my options were the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland or the Ukraine. I was pretty amazed when I realized the working holiday visa possibilities! I picked the Youth Mobility Visa in Germany based on the number of people who had told me how much I would love Berlin and how easy it would be to find employment as a non-native German speaker. Want to test the water and visit Berlin first? Here’s how to spend 2 days in Berlin!

THE BEST VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN FRANKFURT

Frankfurt is one of those places I assumed I’d hate before visiting. Ahh, don’t I love to be proven wrong about my expectations! The reality is that I really liked Frankfurt. A lot. For its eclectic mix of old and new, for how unapologetically rough around the edge it remains despite being the financial centre of Germany, and for the beautiful nature that still surrounds the city. I loved Frankfurt for the great selection of vegan food we discovered!

If you loved Berlin for all its disheveled 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.

WHAT TO DO IN BUCHAREST (AND THE BEST HOSTELS!)

26th June 2017

best hostels in bucharest

Bucharest was just too cool. I came here with zero expectations and left with an immense desire to come back literally two days later to see and absorb more of this country I knew little about. Bucharest mesmerized me beyond words with its unthinkable history, warmest people and hippest hidden gems of all sorts. I got so busy exploring the smaller unknown nooks and crannies that I forgot the bigger picture – I didn’t even see the Palace of Parliament – the second largest building in the world and an abomination of Ceauşescu’s rule. Just, what exactly is wrong with me?

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 (something that resembles baba ganoush, trust me when I say fill your boots with this stuff!) and pickles to eat alongside bread. That’ll do.

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.
