Oh Venice. It is a city like no other. A car free city where you can walk everywhere along canals, where the only transport is a boat or a gondola. Venice is unique, different from the rest of Italy, so romantic and charming that you’ll fall in love with it, guaranteed. Below my selection of things you must do when in Venice.
1- Wander the narrow winding streets
If you do one thing, do this one. It’s free and it’s the one I enjoyed the most. The main streets of Venice may be packed with tourists but if you let yourself get lost you’ll wind up in quiet gorgeous streets where you’ll go like “Ah, this is why everybody talks about Venice”.
Yep, Argentina is beef paradise. It’s maybe the fact we Argentineans each so much beef that has caused some people to become vegan, or maybe it’s simply the fact that it’s becoming more and more popular allover the world. Still, it’s uncommon to be vegan in Argentina compared to other countries. In fact, despite having lived in Argentina for 23 years before moving to London, I have no “real” vegan friends. By that I mean I’m excluding people I’ve met in vegan forums or Facebook groups.
However, since I became vegan, I realised the vegan world in Buenos Aires has become so big! I found so many restaurants which are either vegan or vegan friendly and are delicious. And I dare say, better than the ones I’ve been to in London. The truth is that there are far less vegan processed products available in Argentina so vegan restaurants have to make everything from scratch. Not processed = healthy & tasty! I’ve chosen my favorite ones so that you can get exploring Buenos Aires’ vegan scene.
Ramen is a noodle soup dish that was originally imported from China and has become one of the most popular dishes in Japan in recent decades. Ramen is super cheap and everywhere, which makes it ideal for those in a budget. You’ll find ramen restaurants (ramen-ya) in virtually every corner of the country and they offer countless regional variations of this noodle dish. In ramen-ya’s you typically order and pay from a vending machine. The most popular types are:
Malta was definitely my travel find of the year. Although not at all tourist free, this tiny island is still not a super popular destination and hence why you should go like – right now. I love how it’s an island and a beach destination but also has beautiful and interesting historic places to visit. Hence, it basically meets the needs of the beach lovers, culture seekers and those like me that need a little bit of both. I just get bored being all day at the beach! Anyways, it’s truly awesome. For your convenience I’ve created the below bucket list which covers everything you can possibly do.
