Editor’s Note:  We met Dee at a vegetarian restaurant in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Dee is originally from London, England but has lived in Chiang Mai for several years.

Unusual Classrooms

Teaching English as a Second Language lends itself to a nomadic lifestyle, allowing me to combine my love of teaching with my love of traveling.

Melinda Beach, Lesbos, Greece

Note: We visited Lesbos in 2011, a year before we went vegan. This post references non-vegan products that we no longer consume since learning about the suffering that dairy and other products cause non-human animals. For our first full day in Lesbos we decided to rent a car and drive to the southeastern part of […]

Pamukkale Turkey

Exploring Pamukkale, Turkey

When we first brought home our travel guide for Turkey, one of the cover pictures looked like an iced over mountain with bright blue turquoise pools, layered along the slope. Thankfully, the inside cover gave a photo credit and the location of this pristine landscape: Pamukkale. We dare you to google it and not be […]
