Aliciousquotes: I still may not know what I want to be

“I still may not know what I want to be when I grow up but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs.

So, that’s the dream I’m working on.”

Whenever you travel you will come across places that are disappointing in the way that they don’t live up to the high expectations you had of them (for myself, such places were Paris or Cinque Terre in Italy). They live off legends created by films or literature and end up being neither unique nor overly special once you visit.

However, you  will also find yourself in locations you had no clear expectations of or places that people tend to voluntarily miss out on their travels because they’ve heard – usually from someone who’s never been – that these places are  dull/ dangerous/ not worth getting off the bus. Suddenly you will  wish you had more time or you are going to completely ruin your travel schedule as you’ll spend a lot more time there than you had planned.

Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic

Along with the first flowers telling us that winter is over and, yes, spring is finally here, fresh leaves of wild garlic have been featuring on Instagram for the last week. For a lover of all things garlic like myself this meant that wild garlic had to be found and harvested asap. Because I’m a nice person (yes, that’s fishing for compliments here) I’ll tell you my favourite spots to find it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic
