The best thing about traveling as a vegan in the UK

The best thing about traveling as a vegan in the UK

By Jercyl Lerin Jun 27, 2019

Coming from a place where veganism is a fairly new and still unfamiliar concept, traveling to the UK was a welcome experience. It did not exactly start well.

Vegan Travel Cebu: Things to Do on a One-Day Visit to the Philippines' Queen City of the South

Fear and worry are like unwanted guests that make their presence felt every single time.

Vegan Travel Food Spot: Veganerie Soul in Bangkok

By Jercyl Lerin Apr 10, 2019

I arrived hungry in Bangkok on a Friday morning. But I was buoyed by the thought of having lunch at the Veganerie, an all-vegan restaurant that I read a lot about when I was doing my research for my trip. So when I finally arrived at the hotel, after almost an hour because of the heavy traffic, I just quickly dropped off my carry-on in my room and booked a Grab car to take me to Veganerie Soul in Siam Paragon.
