Pure Kitchen Vegan & Vegetarian Dining

When I announced my newfound vegan lifestyle to my best friend about a year ago she decided we would never dine-out together again. For some people, the words “vegetarian” or “vegan” denote healthy lifestyle and environmental awareness. For others, the words are synonymous with “pretentious, top-knot wearing, yoga loving, aggressive hippy who doesn’t eat bacon or anything else delicious in this world”.

Camping in Queensland Pt. 1

Six weeks. A bundle of summer clothes. Good hiking boots and more rolled oats than any one person should consume in their lifetime. If you look into driving North from New South Wales up through Queensland any given travel guide will insist you visit Cape York. For many people in Australia, going all the way to the tip via the Old Coach Road is the final frontier- the adventure to top all adventures. While it certainly comes highly recommended, especially if you have the right vehicle, the experience sounds a touch overrated. Over the years, Cape York has become one of those coveted tourist destinations that travelers seek out for its “authenticity”. This has only led to over-development and crowded campsites during school holidays. We decided not to go. That being said, there are a number of beautiful places to visit along the way.
