I have been asked quite frequently if I have had difficulties maintaining a vegetarian diet while travelling. It surprises me how often this question comes up, and I am not sure I have ever done a good job answering it.
Visiting Italian cities is like walking through an open air museum. The only limitation is that with my barely mediocre art history knowledge I was not always sure of the significance of what I was looking at. In hindsight, I think this may have actually worked in my favour.
I like visiting old ruins, particularly the ones where nature has been allowed to creep back in, softening the edges. The park-like settings are soothing and a source of inspiration as I let my mind wander and fill in the blanks.
I have been creating mini paintings and posting them for sale on the landing page almost daily for the month of January. Sometimes there is a thought just screaming to be captured on paper, other days it is more like I am trying to coax a shy snail out from its shell with a flame thrower.
As a consumer I try to support companies working towards a healthier planet. I strongly believe each dollar, euro, krone, lira, dirham spent can be a vote for a cleaner environment. So, I am always on the lookout for the best product to put in my pack.
