Czech Republic: Prague – Places serving vegan food

We recently spent 3 days in the amazing city of Prague. During our time there we decided to check out what the city had to offer in term of vegan eateries. There were two we really liked; Forkys – a fast food place with burgers and bowls and Vegan’s – a restaurant with great views of the castle from its terrace serving traditional Czech food as well as International options.

Czech Republic: Prague – U Páva Hotel (Review)

For our stay in Prague we wanted to stay close to city centre as we planned to walk everywhere. After looking around on hotel booking websites I decided to book a room at U Páva – which means ‘At the Peacock’ in Czech. The hotel is ideally placed to explore the surrounding markets, museums and historic buildings of Mala Strana, but it’s also just a 15-minute stroll across the bridge to the Old Town. It is only a 10-minute walk to Prague Castle.

Oregon: Takilma / Cave Junction – Out’n’About Treesort (Review)

It was an opportunistic stop a Out’n’About Treesort that resulted in us moving to Oregon nearly 10 years ago. It was here that we picked up a leaflet for the Oregon Shakespeare festival. I called and purchased tickets and off we went to Ashland for a couple of days. We fell in love with Ashland and Oregon and decided this was where we were going to stay once we’d finished our year long family road trip around America.

Italy: Rome – Ops! Vegan Restaurant (Review)

After our first two nights in Rome where we “suspended” our vegan diet to try some traditional Italian dishes (mainly pasta and pizza) we decided that we needed to get back on track. Researching Happy Cow we found a surprisingly limited number of vegan eating options in Central Rome. After bit humming and hawing we decided on trying a restaurant called Ops! which was located about 2.7 km (1.7 miles) from our apartment.

Italy: Rome – One bedroom apartment in Monti (Review)

For our stay in I had organised for us to stay in a one-bedroom apartment in Rome’s trendy Monti district, which I booked through AirBnb.

Centrally located, Monti is a short walk from the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. It’s possible to walk almost anywhere from here. It was also close to several metro stations and the central train station – plus plenty of shops and good restaurants.
