So this is obviously going to be subjective to me, but here are the best vegan cafes and restaurants I went to whilst I was in Los Angeles in November 2019.
It’s that old saying of when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. For me, it was when you hit the ground with the side of your ankle really bloody hard, it’s time to start accepting the help that’s offered to you on your journey back to Pai and then to the states.
My last 10 days in Gili Air were jam-packed full of beautiful and exciting things.
My life in Gili Air has settled back on me like a cat finding its favourite place in the morning sun. It almost feels as though I never even left.
Obviously, there are some changes. The people are different. Some friends here are still the same. However, I have found myself making new, beautiful friends as well. Again, most of them are divers but there are a lot less French around me this time which means I understand a lot more of what’s going on. The French generally just speak French.
Change is a constant in life. We all know that. Our skin, hair, faces, relationships and even thoughts change. For some people, a little more quickly than others.
This constant state of change gives us permission and reminders that we should live in the present moment and enjoy what we have now. Because we know that it can all change in an instant.
The past few weeks have been an absolutely whirlwind consisting of early wake-ups, smiling faces and an experience I couldn’t have dreamt of in my wildest dreams.
I’ve had another visit from another friend. Only that before she arrived, we weren’t really close friends. Mo I met about a year and a half ago when she tattooed the galaxy on my arm. I saw on Instagram that she was doing a guest spot at a tattoo studio in Bali in July. I messaged her asking if she could tattoo me, but it just didn’t work out as I was working and money and all those things.
A step-by-step guide on how to make some wonderful new friends whilst travelling the world and enjoying yourself.
Oh, why hello there!
I know, I know, it’s been a while between posts. But once again my excuse is that I honestly just haven’t had the time. I have had a constant stream of friends come to visit me over the past few weeks which means that I haven’t found myself alone at all.
My birthday was this week. I’ve found there’s something extra special about having your birthday away from home.
You don’t have the luxury of organising a party with fancy things. You have to make do with what you have, which I think makes you appreciate it a whole lot more.
