Open your Golden Gate... | San Francisco

Open your Golden Gate... | San Francisco

My trip to San Fran this time around was not mean't to be a food adventure (I'll save that for Portland next month), but one that was to get me out of LA and into some family time...the delicious food finds was just an inevitable consequence.

Take it to the Desert | Palm Springs

Take it to the Desert | Palm Springs

From LA to Palm Springs is roughly 1.5 hours away making it a fairly quick and painless get away. The only downfall is the heat. Something to be conscious of before traipsing out. Mind you, when it's not summer (or close to summer), it's not horrible. It's calm, serene and a great place to clear one's mind.

Traveling Klean: South America-Iguazu Falls (Argentina Side)

While we first entered Iguazu Falls on the Argentina side I was fighting a high fever, round the clock fever-reducing medication, ear infection, fatigue and a sore throat–perfect for a long day of walking in the blaring sun WHICH happens to be my favorite part of a trip.

Now another year has crept along and I was once again graciously invited back to spend the holidays with his family and to enjoy some time with his friends. This time, we changed it up and added a day trip to DC before heading into West Virginia.

Portland Vegan Beer & Food Festival

Portland Vegan Beer & Food Festival

When the show goes on the road, you either stay behind and watch forlornly at all the pictures being posted OR you book a flight and get your butt to Portland! The Vegan Power Rangers Crew and I loaded up and shipped out.

Some of the crew were even able to make it a few days ahead and sadly, I became the one watching forlornly at their posts; wishing I had bought a ticket for a day earlier. 

With that being said, I managed to push forward and make it one of the best damn Traveling Vegan trips to date
