Despite my observation that Colombians seems to derive nearly all of their protein from animal-sources (namely meat and fish), eating vegan in Colombia turned out to be surprisingly easy. And delicious! Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Vegan Caribbean Colombia
99 times out of 100 my favourite way of exploring a place will be by foot. Not only because I enjoy walking but because I like to be among the locals, see where they shop, what they wear, what they eat, how they move. Continue reading Alicioustravels: The streets of Cartagena (Colombia)

Veganmania 2016 was a blast! It’s getting bigger and better every year. Just like last year the weather was in favour of us and we got to enjoy vegan food, drinks, cosmetics, fashion and whatnotelse in the sunshine.
This year I was especially adamant to stop at each stall for at least a quick browse – and quite often quite more than that. You may have followed me on some of my (mostly) food adventures on Snapchat or Instagram.
Here is the whole story
On the first day I had initially planned on having a first look after yoga class, then decided on grabbing “something light” to eat – and ended up with a delicious, if not exactly light, raw vegan Tiramisu from the never-disappointing Easy-going bakery. Also, I picked up a poppy seed croissant for Mr A and a nut-filled croissant for myself for breakfast the next day.
On Thursday, a public holiday, Mr A and I completed this year’s first hike up Rax from Preiner Gscheid, our favourite route up the mountain and treated ourselves to burgers from I love Veggie Burger afterwards. Needless to say I was way too late to grab one of Bernds Welt’s famous Punschkrapferl. So late, in fact, that they had completely sold out by the time we arrived.
Good for them!
As I had Friday off, another opportunity presented itself and I got up bright and early to wait at the stall of Bernds Welt when they opened, Tupperware container in hand. I wasn’t the only one! 4 Punschkrapferl later I was on my way home to drop them off, only to return for a pulled jack burger from Jenonne and a hot dog from Veganz for dessert.
One more day
I was relieved of my usual Saturday morning duties (i.e. the grocery shopping for the week) due to the fact that we were spending the weekend with my parents so I once more visited Veganmania for a satisfying breakfast of a lentil-based burger from Vleischpflanzerl, followed by fresh juice. Dessert was a nut cake from Zuckero with vanilla ice cream on top.
Long story short: I immensely enjoyed myself and can’t wait for Veganmania 2017 to happen. Rumour has it it’s going to be in front of the Vienna City Hall which would be legend.
Were you also there? What did you enjoy the most? Next year let me know so we can catch up!
Almost 10 years had passed since my last dive. How did that happen? How did time fly by so fast while I wasn’t able to log at least a couple of sub-aquatic experiences? Continue reading Alicioustravels: Getting back into diving
It’s been less than two weeks since I returned from Colombia. What had initially been a trip to attend my good friend’s wedding turned out to be a most memorable holiday – and Colombia made it very easy for me to not want to go home by the end of it. Continue reading Alicioustravels: My Colombian experience
During the hot and dry summer of 2015 my balcony garden had ample time to thrive and throw off fruit. While last year I couldn’t wait to get going and planted the first seeds as soon as February, I was
n’t quite as eager lazy this year and only started playing around in mid-March.
A product so nice I’m using it twice. Twice as long as originally anticipated to be exact. Only, strictly speaking it’s not the same but two very similar products. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: 14 more days with Dr. Bronner
Now that my two weeks of experimenting with a bar of Dr. Bronner’s neutral pure-castile soap are over, which claims one can use it for 18 different purposes, I am quite satisfied with the results.
So satisfied that I am already into a new, similar experiment, but more on this later on. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: 14 days with Dr. Bronner – my results
The question I’ve been asked more than any others since adopting a plant-based lifestyle is „But don’t you miss XYZ?“. And while I can honestly say that I don’t miss anything, I do get the occasional cravings for food that I once enjoyed eating. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Unvegan cravings
