HEY THERE 🙂
Welcome to The WILD Life, a travel & food blog!
This website is a collection of my travel stories, destination guides, travel budgets, useful travel tips and reviews. You’ll find information on a number of destinations, with MANY more to be added! In August 2016, I quit my job, packed up my things and left the UK for an infinite adventure. My plans include discovering Europe, taking the Trans-Siberian train through Russia, heading into the Mongolian wilderness, revisiting my favourite country China and exploring South East Asia. All before travelling and working in New Zealand. After that, it’s Australia, South America, Canada….. and everywhere else!
In January ’16, I transitioned from veggie to vegan too, so I’ll also be keeping you updated with food diaries from the road. Plus, vegan restaurant reviews and tips on how to find vegan and veggie food wherever you are in the world! You can read all about my plans here.
I travel on a pretty tight budget, seeing as much as possible and stretching my money as far as it will go. I’ll often scrimp on transport and accommodation (yay, hostels) to fund weird and wonderful activities or splash out on a fancy dinner. I love a bargain but definitely appreciate the occasional luxury!
Hopefully the information below will help you find what you are looking for:
Scroll over the ‘Destinations‘ tab at the top of the page and select a continent from the drop-down list. You can then click on specific countries to read all posts related to that place!
Head to the ‘Food‘ tab and you’ll find reviews of vegetarian and vegan restaurants and information on the best places to find vegan food in specific countries. There’s also a link to a post I wrote containing loads of information about veganism (‘Why Vegan?‘) as this was requested by a few people! You can also read my vegan story which explains why I chose this lifestyle 🙂
The ‘Notes from the Road‘ section is designed for me to include longer, journal-style posts to document each day I spend on the road. Written more like stories than blog posts, these will be ramblings of my adventures for me to look back on in years to come. If you’re feeling nosey, or want to know what we get up to on a day to day basis, go ahead and take a peek!
