Follow my family and I on our journey through new and familiar lands where I share what each location has to offer and the vegan gems we’ve come across. We’ve been to cities that range from being Vegan Meccas to others that need to get with the times but we’ll share how we’ve navigated them as best as we could. While traveling is important to exposing us to other cultures, even just across state lines, it’s important we remain steadfast in our determination to live a cruelty-free life, even if that means passing on local traditions, saying no to the photo op with enslaved animals, and dealing with the discomfort of declining a generous offering to remain true to our Do No Harm philosophy. We’re still learning how best to navigate this beautiful world and seeking out budget friendly ways to travel to maximize our ability to do it most often while still within the rigid guidelines of corporate America and the US school system leave times, for now. Our views on travel have greatly evolved over the years and I’m looking forward to growing and sharing what we find. We have a lot of ground to cover.
In 2016, you can find us visiting:
March – New England road trip: MD > RI > ME > NH > VT
April – Austin
May – Puerto Rico
July – annual trip to the Catskills, NYC
Oct – tentative trip out west
with more to come.

One thing I’ve yet to cover, of all things, is where to eat in Baltimore when visiting or when you just can’t be bothered to clean another dish. I’ve mentioned my personal struggle with Baltimore in general before so my opinions on the city are admittedly often laced with frustration and lacking in Baltimore pride. But when […]
The more we travel, the more we find our groove. My goal is to get myself down to a small carry-on no matter where I go or for how long. We really don’t require that much, I seem to be able to make it through my weeks at home with very little clothing and supplies […]
I recently wrote about my feelings on Baltimore, sometimes I like to play tourist in my hometown and other times I just try to cope with existing here. I have my regular spots that greet me on weekend mornings with a big cozy latte or afternoon destinations for mother & son dates. I know […]
