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!
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!
Since I get asked this question on the regular, I thought of presenting you with this “best yoga retreat 2021” roundup post, cause, boy don’t we all need a bit of hope for the new year, eh. This is a collection of top yoga retreats I have either been visiting or have been dreaming of visiting — retreats for all budgets, from luxury yoga retreats abroad, to more affordable yoga retreat near me — because that may well be as far as I can go. But also I’m always up to trying out new things and adding to the list, so: what do you think are the best yoga retreats 2021 options?
I’m such a fan of yoga for boosting the mind-body balance and helping me achieve way more in life, that I hardly know where to start describing my experience and continuing journey. One place I do know where to begin is with my YTT in India, where a whole new world of knowledge, understanding and compassion opened up to me. I learned to spread my wings in a way that has altered my outlook on the world and has changed me forever.
Screw men. Haha lol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2020, all I want is to gather with soul sisters and practice mindfulness away from men in a women’s retreat where I can let my hair down and my inner Wild Woman run free. There’s something extremely empowering and magical with letting your barriers down with other women in a safe space and explore your true potential. Naturally, the most fitting place to do this is in the safe confine of a women’s retreat. So today I wanted to present to you the best women’s retreats in time for 2020.
I picked the island of Crete a little randomly — the flights were cheap, I needed a holiday, it wasn’t awfully far from Berlin, the Chania weather sounded like just what I needed, the gazillion Chania beaches were just the ticket, this little town called Loutro seemed too good to be true, and a Chania car rental cost peanuts. It do be a done deal, I thought. My friend Olga and I decided to wing it a little, flew right into Chania, decided on a cheap Chania airport car rental company, picked one of many affordable Chania hotels for the first three nights, and off we went on a whim.
As I write this I am preparing to go on my first international trip in a verrrrry long time (thanks coronavirus!). Although taking a forced break from travel for the first half of 2020 has been challenging, in some ways I’m grateful because it has allowed me to reflect on my eco travel practices and how environmentally sustainable they are.
I’ll be honest, I have been putting off curating my weekend in Berlin guide for a while now because… well, I have been a little overwhelmed as there’s just SO much amazing stuff to experience in this city.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realised that whenever I have friends or family planning short breaks to Berlin I recommend different things depending on who they are and what they are interested in — be that culture, clubbing, food, wellness or shopping.
Travel bans are about to loosen up, and many of us will be thinking about how we’re going to spend our holidays soon.
