Aliciouslyvegan: Carrot-cake with a hint of Nespresso

 

I love carrot cake more than any other cake. Our relationship started in 2003 during my first visit to New Zealand. Perfectly moist carrot cakes – usually with delicious lemon icing – were everywhere: in cafés, rest stops and excursion boats. While my first bite may have been timid, my second was surely greedy.

I wasn’t so sure about this. 2-3 weeks of walking, by myself, crossing a 5,400m high pass didn’t sound all that appealing to me. Would I even be physically able (i.e. fit enough) to do it? I wasn’t at all sure about it. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Walking the Annapurna Circuit

Aliciouslyvegan: Meal planning for a week of hiking

For our recent stay at Achensee we decided to rent an apartment to not only save money but also for maximum flexibility in regards to eating. It’s not always easy to find vegan food in rural Austria and I didn’t want to take any chances (also, I may be the reason the word “hangry” was originally invented).
