Vegan Travel Goal: 5 Ways to Traveling More Mindfully this 2020

Hectic is the first word that comes to mind to describe my 2019 in travel. Not that I did a lot of traveling. It was just that the trips I had felt rushed and somewhat lacking in depth of experiences. Travel has always been a constant source of happiness for me. And last year's travels were no exceptions. Except that that they were not as fulfilling as I thought they would be. I think I got carried away by the excitement and trying to jampack as many activities as I can in every place that I visit. In the end, I felt like I missed out on a lot of good things I used to enjoy. So this year's travel goal is to do it more mindfully.

I really love Italy. Last month’s trip was my fourth visit there. But each visit always feels like the first time. It is truly a breathtaking place. And the Tuscany region, famous for its dramatic landscapes, picturesque old towns, food, art, and history, is more than everything I expected.

We had a wonderful time in Italy last October traveling around Tuscany. Fall was even more breathtaking in the region widely known for its dramatic landscapes, mesmerizing natural scenery, and charming small towns like Volterra. The picturesque walled medieval town has a timeless feel to it. The past and present seem to intertwine in the town's daily life. It was there that we also had a fascinating food experience at The Life Bistrot Restaurant, a 100% plant-based breakfast and lunch place in the heart of the ancient town.
