In the travel community, there is generally a strong focus on seeing as many different countries as possible. Many people count the countries they have been to and proudly display them on their social media. While there is nothing wrong with that and I also keep track of the different countries I’ve been to, I believe that this sometimes means people miss out on exploring specific countries more in-depth. If you only see the capital for a day or two does that mean you really know the country? That doesn’t mean you have to see every part of every country you visit, but I think that there are definitely some countries that are worth traveling to again and again because they have so much to offer.
Let me apologize for the absence these past ten or so days. I was going to put up a post on the vegan food I had in Warsaw before flying to Milan, but then I noticed that I could no longer find the picture of the best burger I've ever had. Without that picture, the post about Warsaw would have been a bit obsolete, so I skipped it. Then we traveled to Milan, so here I am with all the details on the vegan food I had in Italy's second largest city.
... even if it's a dress.
Somehow I still can't get over how beautiful my ten days in Malta were and keep looking for ways to share more pictures from the trip. You can see a few of them in my Malta sneak peek, my vegan Malta post, and my outfit post.
I thought I'd share a few sunset pictures in which I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses.
This past weekend, I traveled to a rather peculiar destination if you ask most Europeans: Tirana, capital of Albania. Due to the country's isolation from the rest of the world for a large portion of the last century, it is surrounded by many myths, no less thanks to the movie Taken. Albanians are generally assumed to be criminals active in the sex and drug trade, and many people are afraid of traveling to Albania.
I found a decently priced flight from Athens to Tirana on Skyscanner and decided I'd make up my own mind, rather than listening to what other people who have never been to the country say. I didn't expect much, but went to Tirana with an open mind. I was pleasantly surprised and have to say that I liked Tirana even more than other cities in the region.
Ah, traveling as a vegan... By now you have surely realized that I love food and travel equally, and there’s not much I like more than finding vegan food in new and unfamiliar destinations. That has not changed on my recent trip to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria
I just got back from a long weekend in Sofia so I haven't really had time for a new post. Therefore, I decided to opt for something that still shows you a bit from my recent trip to Malta (check out my sneak peak and my detailed posts on the trip itself and the vegan food I had there).
As you all know from my recent vegan travel post and my sneak peek, this year's summer vacation was spent in Malta, a country I had planned on visiting for a few years now. Malta is the smallest country in Europe by size, but has a relatively large population, which means it is extremely densely populated. In fact, aside from small city states like Monaco, Singapore, and the Vatican, Malta comes second only to Bahrain in terms of population density.
As you saw in my little sneak peek post, this year’s summer vacation was spent in the picturesque island country of Malta. I’m planning a more detailed post on my time there, but I wanted to start with a post about all the fantastic vegan food I had there. Malta is by no means a vegan paradise, and options are actually fairly limited (especially when compared with Hamburg and Warsaw), but it helps to keep in mind that Malta is actually the smallest country in the EU. This meant that we kept going back to the same few places again and again if we found them to provide good vegan food.
Sorry for the longer absence! Before I leave on a longer trip, I usually schedule some posts to go up during my absence. This time, however, the night before we left for Malta, I was victim of a home invasion. Needless to say, I was a bit too shaken up to think about blogging. After spending a week in Malta, I can at least give you a sneak peek into our Malta trip before a more detailed post goes up in the future.
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.
