Madrid - Healthy Food Guide

Ah the land of infinite tapas + sangria, Spain. When thinking of the Spanish, there is much to celebrate about their culture and country; focus on family, siestas, warm weather, The Balearic Islands… the list goes one. One of the latter thoughts that comes to mind is healthy food, let alone plant based food! So I was rather surprised when we headed to Madrid this past weekend to discover that there were many veggie friendly spots, not only that but they were particularly good. Very good.

A Week In Paris

Living in Europe has its perks, hopping on a train and travelling through the countryside for 3 hours and arrive in the centre of Paris is most definitely one of them. Earlier this year, we ventured over to Paris for a beautiful few days, exploring, seeing friends, visiting many galleries, shopping and ofcourseneating lots of delicious food. I found there to be somewhat of a Vegan/Vegetarian food revolution going on at the moment and a huge trend towards health culture in general, comparatively to my visit two years previously. The following is a little photo story and some sweet spots around Paris… prendre plaisir!

A Summer in Italia - Lago Di Garda

Up in the northern Italy, about halfway between Brescia and Verona , and between Venice and Milan on the edge of the Dolomites lies a little piece of magic. In the province of Brescia sits Gardone Rivera, the most picturesque lake side Italian town where the shore meets the mountain and the sun always shines. Our time here was nothing short of a dream, days filled of adventuring, eating too good and living la dolce vita. I'll keep the words to a minimum and let the photos tell you the story of our Italian days... Bellissimo!

Ubud Travel Guide - Bali, Indonesia

Far and wide wherever I find myself to be,  with whomever I may be speaking to, it seems a not-so-little secret that Ubud is the mecca of all things healthy, yoga and spiritual. More often than not the reputation that precedes a popular travel spot doesn't always quite live up to its the high expectation its garnered. Ubud, as well known as it has become, hasn't lost its charm and essence. Don't get me wrong, there still remains the hustle and bustle side, with many tourists arriving in droves daily, but if you navigate away from this in to quieter parts of the Ubud it is truly beautiful. Partly thanks to the local ex-pat community who have taken great measures to ensure the arts, culture and land are celebrating, also ensuring recycling practices are well in place.

European Summer, Formentera

I am a sun chaser. Throughout the colder months in Australia I generally tend to escape the weather and head away in search of some warmer shores. Although, admittedly, Australian winters are something to be envied, it rarely gets below 10c and usually it is sunshine, minimal rain and clear skies throughout. I seem to be the laughing stock when I tell my overseas friends ‘it got to 15c today, freezing!’
