My favourite impressions of South America are as diverse as the continent itself. They are primarily nature-based (no big surprise here) not because I didn’t visit any cities but because I simply did not like the cities – at least not nearly as much as I enjoyed being outdoors in the deserts of Uyuní and Atacama, discovering hidden (well, “hidden”) waterfalls in Iguazú or getting up, close and personal with the magnificent Moai on Easter Island.

Since last Wednesday I have been participating in my first-ever month-long challenge and of course I’ve picked something considerably harder than taking a photo per day to share on social media or to say “thank you” at least once a day (which we should do anyway), because if it’s easy – where’s the challenge?

Mr A and myself had been contemplating a hiking trip in early summer for a while but only now did we decide to actually book it. While initially Alto Adige or Lake Garda in Italy together with the area around Bled in Slovenia were our favoured destinations, we eventually decided on a place much closer – and in Austria.

Two weeks ago I noticed that there was a free fruit basket with each order of a Kochabo box. I only briefly mentioned the recipes planned for that week to Mr A and we immediately agreed that we would reactivate our subscription to get the ingredients for three vegan meals delivered to our door the next Monday.

For a while I’ve been debating the pros and cons of so much as touching the topic of politics on Aliciouslog. So far, I never used my blog as a platform to express my personal political opinion. Due to recent events, however, I feel obliged to use whatever little public presence I have to say stop.
It’s been enough. Continue reading Enough is enough

Mushroom spinach parcels are so simple it took me a while to come up with them. Actually I’m not sure what prompted me to make them for dinner one night. However, I’m positive I have only been making them since I went vegan. They’re great in every way Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Mushroom spinach parcels
One always needs a goal. I always need a next destination. Since our fabulous trip to Istanbul has become a thing of the past, however beautiful the memory, Mr A and myself are currently focussing on our next trip out of the country: Portugal. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Portugal in September
While I am more than happy in regard to the current temperatures (it actually feels like summer) I will always prefer to spend the hottest days of the year outside the city.
The forecast of mid-30s and thunderstorms was a welcome excuse to visit my parents – with a detour via a strawberry field. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Escaping the heat
What if I told you that you could have ice cream for breakfast? And what if I also told you it could actually be good for you? Without any unnecessary fats or added sugars? Wouldn’t that be great?
Let me show you how to make it happen. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Banana peanut butter ice cream smoothie
