I love to travel...yeah I know, big whoop, doesn’t everyone? But no, I really mean that (for the most part) I love every aspect of it - the flights, the trains, the metro, the trams and buses, finding my way around cities I don’t know (and this from someone with an appalling sense of direction) … Continue reading Wanderlust lite

I'm addicted to the kale and quinoa burgers from Strong Roots, but decided … Continue reading Spiced spinach and sweet potato burgers

Just like when you reach a milestone birthday...you're not really a whole lot different once the clock strikes midnight - but people tend to make a deal of it.
