As you know from my most recent minimalist packing post, I went to Warsaw last weekend for a short city break. I tried to use my time wisely and ended up sacrificing museum visits due to the stunning weather. In this post, I'll share some of my thoughts and pictures.
This weekend, I will be heading to Warsaw for a super short trip, and I want to pack as little as possible. As I will be spending a night there, I will need to bring some essentials however.
If you saw my posts on minimalist packing for a week in Hamburg and Hamburg’s Speicherstadt, you know that we spent the first week of May in Hamburg visiting family and friends. Living in Hamburg, I never had to seek out vegan restaurants as I was still vegetarian, which is a lot easier with regards to eating out. My expectations were quite high as I had already found a multitude of options on HappyCow. Compared to my previous travels as a vegan (Corfu, Bucharest, Rome, Brussels), this trip was so much more filled with exciting vegan options.
We just got back from a week-long trip to Hamburg, and since I already mentioned Hamburg's Speicherstadt (literally: "warehouse city") in my top six things to see and do in Hamburg, I would like to go into a little bit more detail. As the Speicherstadt was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2015 and is certainly one of the most beautiful and impressive sights in Hamburg let me give you an overview of its history and some of the things you can do there.
On Sunday, my boyfriend and I will be flying to Hamburg for one week to visit family and friends. As you know from my post on minimalist packing for Rome, I prefer to travel with hand luggage only. This is generally not difficult if you remember to focus on the things you really need.
It's been a while since I last made a vegan travel post, but here it is, and it's about Brussels, Belgium. By now you already know that my favorite place to look up vegan and vegan-friendly places when traveling is HappyCow, and there are quite a few listings for Brussels. The obvious favorites in Brussels are waffles, fries, and chocolate, so I was hoping to find some vegan versions. As we only spent one night in Brussels, it was actually not necessary to try out a lot of places, however.
Living in noisy and polluted Athens means that I often have to escape the city for a while. While travel is not always feasible (there is only so much time and money I can spend on travel) there are ways to escape the city without leaving Athens. Exploring the many Athenian neighborhoods opens up a different world and the best area for this is Plaka.
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and known as the “Gate to the World.” It has one of the main ports in the world and was the port of exit for millions of Europeans who left for North America. As a port city, Hamburg also has a rich history in trade with the entire world. As someone who has lived and studied in Hamburg for several years and grown up in the metropolitan region of this beautiful northern city, I have a special relationship with the city and can give you the list of the six things to see and do in Hamburg.
The first time I traveled to Rome was in the summer of 2000. It was a school trip, and, unfortunately, our teacher thought it would be a great idea to stay at a convent where rules mandated that we had to be in our rooms by 11 pm. Aside from that, it was a cool trip, and because it was a school trip we obviously had to do presentations on all the sights. After nine days we felt like we had seen absolutely everything and taken in all the information we could, so we were okay with leaving the next day.
I have a lot of websites in my bookmarks: vegan and cruelty-free makeup lists, all sorts of blogging advice, online stores, recipes, Qur’an translations, a lot of things related to academia, links related to my studies, entire scientific articles, booking websites, news websites, job search websites, universities, photography tips, yoga schools, overall just a lot of stuff that I want to be able to read again when I want.
