All the best places I ate vegan food in Lisbon

I no longer feel much in the way of worry that I won’t be able to find good vegan food when travelling, and certainly not in European cities, where I’ve eaten some really amazing plant based stuff. Lisbon was no different, with the food turning out to be a real highlight of the trip. I… Continue reading All the best places I ate vegan food in Lisbon

Three nights in Trinidad, Cuba | Travel Diary

After nearly two weeks in Cuba and by this point feeling more well-versed in the idiosyncrasies of the country, we arrived at our final stop; colourful, vibrant Trinidad.

A December weekend in Prague | Travel Diary

Affordable, beautiful and steeped in history, Prague felt like the kind of place whose mention was always met with ‘we went there one Christmas’ or ‘oh, I LOVE Prague’ – the kind of place that everyone has already been. ‘Everyone’, of course, didn’t include me, so it’s been somewhere on my travel wishlist for a… Continue reading A December weekend in Prague | Travel Diary
