Cheesin’ Out In Cali – The Pizza Truck Story

The amount of vegan options that I found while traveling through Colombia always amazed me. Now, don’t expect to find more than a few vegan restaurants per city, but even the fact that there are that many was really impressive to me. While in Cali, I was traveling with a few friends and we wanted to go out for pizza. Knowing that veganized pizza is often a hit, I whipped…

Checking Out The Rising Vegan Scene In Lima

Lima, Peru is gorgeous. Situated right by the ocean, you can find yourself in the bustling city center one minute and walking along sky high sea cliffs the next, observing hundreds of paragliders soaring above as they fly by, often a little bit too close for comfort. However, what I didn’t expect to find in downtown Lima was a hip vegan restaurant serving up some of the best food that…

VekoLogisch in Amsterdam

While it might just sound like a funny word, “squatting” is a fascinating sub-culture of The Netherlands since the 80’s. In the past, vacant buildings could legally be inhabited by basically anyone that felt like claiming them as their own. This movement was started by young people in Holland, unable to find or afford other housing options. They’d basically just walk into an abandoned building and set up shop. And…

On-Point Vegan Eats At Green Point Restaurant In Cusco, Peru

If Cusco hasn’t yet been named the vegan capital of South America, I would like to be the first to suggest that title. This bustling city, known for being the travel hub to get to Machu Picchu, is a fantastic place to see and while you’re there, you’ll be blessed with some of the best vegan food known to mankind. It didn’t take me long to find out about Green…

Vegan Food Under A Bridge

As they say in real estate: Location, Location, Location. While touring around London, I passed by a vegan café in an unlikely place; right under a rail station. Quaintly placed below the station’s bridge, The Fields Beneath is a phenomenal little spot to enjoy a coffee or latte and watch the world pass by. I brought a non-vegan friend along with me to share in the experience (and so that…

Entering Into The World Of Vegan Sushi

“What the hell is a maki…” Those were my first thoughts when I arrived at El Buda Profano in Arequipa, Peru. I feel a bit bashful admitting it, but I am no sushi connoisseur. Well, I wasn’t, at least. Traveling through Peru brought a wide range of experiences. It brought me everything from a serious case of traveler’s flu to a serious case of spiritual awakening (long story). But maybe most…

Eatin’ Good in Granada

Although I don’t think it formally deserves this title, so far Spain feels like the meat capital of the world. However, Granada (in the south of Spain) has a booming vegan scene that’s growing every year!  I didn’t get to spend much time in Granada, but I did have the opportunity to work with an incredible little vegetarian restaurant that offered a heap of superb vegan dishes by the name of…

Sampling The Vegan Scene In Sheffield

One of the greatest things about traveling full-time is meeting all kinds of amazing people from all over the world. While on a year-long backpacking trip through Latin America, I met a British guy named Julien and we hit it off, traveling with each other through Bolivia before parting ways in Peru. I later told him that I’d be heading off to the U.K at some point and he invited…

A Less Heard Of Benefit Of Being Vegan

You’ve probably heard that a vegan diet is good for your heath. You’ve probably heard that it’s good for the planet. And you know that it’s good for the animals. These things are all true. However, you might not have heard one of my personal favorite things about being vegan: it’s an adventure. I spent the past two weeks traveling on a sailboat through the San Juan islands in the…
