Even when we travel short distances and with our car, I rarely bring full sizes. It’s actually a way of getting into travel-mode for me to refill shower gel, shampoo and other essentials into small – hopefully leak-proof – containers. Only when we visit warm locations will I bring a full-sized bottle of sunscreen Continue reading Alicioustravels: Travel Essentials – Toiletries
In my mind I am a cool digital nomad, travelling for a living, whenever and wherever I please – with my little carry-on sized backpack.
Reality differs quite a bit from this mental image of mine Continue reading Alicioustravels: Travel Essentials – Basics
I have been used to going on holidays from a very young age. As soon as I considered myself old enough, I started travelling on my own. Most of my friends will consider me “well-travelled” while I will look at a map and see all those places I have never been to – and many more that I would love to see again.

It’s over and I made it: I lived a whole month (and one of the long 31-day-months too) without – knowingly – consuming any added sugar*. A lot of you have asked me how it was and how my body reacted to a sudden onset of cold turkey, so here is my recap of Sugar-Free July. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Sugar-Free July – Recap
Since sowing my first seeds for 2015 on the last day of February, a lot has happened in my little nursery: Some seeds have grown into little plants, some have not. Generally, the tomatoes seem sturdier than the rest and so far have been the most successful, while my chili and capsicum varieties have mostly died.

One year into my vegan journey, many of you have asked me about the changes. Have I lost weight? Do I feel healthier? What is different? Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: My vegan journey – one year in
Coinciding with Valentine’s Day, the 3rd Viennese Vegan Ball was celebrated at Arcotel Kaiserwasser last night, hosted by the Vegan Society of Austria. It had actually been Mr A’s idea to attend, since I wouldn’t have brought it to his attention, and he invited me to go as a gift to my first vegan birthday.
Neither of us knew what to expect (since we don’t know any other vegans, nor people potentially interested in vegan balls) so we just dressed up and took the U-Bahn out to Kaisermühlen/ VIC. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Vegan Ball
Today, on Day 1 after this year’s Veganuary, marks my first vegan birthday. It’s been a year since I last (knowingly) consumed anything derived from animals and what started as an attempt to a) have something to write about on a previous version on this blog and b) find out whether I can actually survive a month without eggs and the odd burger has now become my normal way of life. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Happy vegan birthday!
In line with other month-long pledges such as Movember,
Ocsober/ Frocktober and the like, 2015 started out with
Veganuary, a pledge to live vegan for the first month of the year.
This wonderful challenge is currently in its 3rd year, with its aim to inform non-(or not yet-) vegans about how easy it is to cut meat, egg, dairy and honey from your diet and how much good it will do to you as well as the environment. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Veganuary
