Day Trips from Brussels

by Ali Garland @ Travel Made Simple

There’s plenty to do in Brussels on your city break. But if you want to mix things up a little, it’s also the perfect city to use as a base for day trips around other parts of Belgium. Especially in such a small country, you can easily do some Brussels day trips to other fantastic […]

Vegan Options in Auckland || The Best Vegan Restaurants, Cafes and Shops!

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

Auckland was my first stop in New Zealand and also the one where I enjoyed the most vegan food! Covering a huuuge area, you can find over 100 places serving vegan and vegetarian food options. I did my best on my tight budget to try as many places as possible, but also did a lot of research to see which places were the most highly rated! Here’s my list of the best vegan options in Auckland….. RESTAURANTS / CAFES Burgerie Up first is one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! If you are craving a BIG fast food fix, Burgerie’s Tower Burger is for you! Loaded with a ‘beef’ patty, mushroom, hash brown, ham/  bacon slice, tomato, lettuce and smashed avocado. It’s not a restaurant, but more of a hole-in-the-wall joint and does serve meat as well. However, the owner is passionate about creating vegan options, understands veganism and has an extensive menu that is forever expanding. Green Time Everything at Green Time is homemade, with a strong focus on grow-your-own, environmentally friendly ingredients and a zero waste mentality. The menu is 100% vegan and is a fusion of Mexican and Asian inspired dishes such as the Sexi Mexi burger, BBQ pulled pork sliders and […]

Why I Choose The Dabbler Approach to Fitness

Why I Choose The Dabbler Approach to Fitness

by poweredbytofu @ Powered by Tofu

I consider myself a “dabbler” in many aspects of life – hobbies, interests, cooking, fitness… What makes a dabbler? It’s defined as “one not deeply engaged in or concerned with something”, which seems a little negative. I think it of more for the positive aspects — So much to try. So little time. While the current trend seems [...]

Simien Mountains National Park: trekking Africa’s Grand Canyon

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

If Simien Mountains National Park really were ‘Africa’s Grand Canyon’, how was it that I knew nothing of it? Was this just Peter’s ploy to drag me out camping again?

I knew of the park by name, but couldn’t point to it on a map, or tell you what I might find there. To be honest, prior to planning our trip, I had no idea there were proper mountains in Ethiopia – a result perhaps of TIA syndrome which conjures dusty, flyblown vistas and not the vast gorges of lush beauty that populate Simien Mountains National Park.

And, so, I set off with my expectations in check. After seeing the fiery furnace of Erta Ale, the yellow lakes of Dallol and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and Tigray, I thought I’d seen the best of Ethiopia. But, no, this inscrutable country had one more gem to sell.

ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUYING A USED CAR OR CAMPERVAN IN NEW ZEALAND [AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD AS PDF]

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

A few months ago now, we bought our first campervan (lovely Cecil) in Auckland. We had a great time travelling all over the country, experiencing van life for the first time! We did a lot of research before buying the van and even put together a list of things to look out for and what to avoid. This list also included questions to ask the seller, to learn more about the vehicle and its history. It was extremely useful for us when we were buying Cecil, so I thought I’d share this pre-purchase checklist with you guys! I’ve summarised everything in this post, but for a more comprehensive & printable PDF guide:  >> ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUYING A CAR OR CAMPERVAN IN NEW ZEALAND (PDF) << PRE-PURCHASE CHECKLIST FOR BUYING A CAMPERVAN OUTSIDE THE CAR *Check for obvious signs of damage. Hidden damage is harder to spot, but look for: Difference in the colour between panels. Bumps or major scratches covered with paint. Gently kick the shock absorbers gently to see if they are holding on. Look for rust – it may affect the value of the car and can lead to further problems. Chips in the windscreen.

Danakil Depression tours: what to know before you go

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

By certain measures, the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia is considered to be the hottest place on earth with temperatures regularly reaching 45°C (113°F). Despite the challenges involved in visiting such a remote and hostile environment, there are numerous Danakil Depression tours on offer.

Surprisingly, tour companies tend to provide very little information for their would-be customers. Key information such as what to expect and what to pack is missing from most tour company websites.

New Zealand SOUTH ISLAND Travel Budget || Breakdown of what I spent in 4.5 weeks

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

After five weeks exploring New Zealand’s North Island, it was time for us to head South! I continued to make a note of everything I spent money on, so I could see just how much our travels through New Zealand cost. We were still travelling and living in Cecil, our trusty campervan, as we drove from Picton to Queenstown. We spent 31 days travelling through Nelson, Marlborough, Abel Tasman, Kaikoura, Christchurch, Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook, Wanaka, Franz Josef, Twizel, Omarama, Arrowtown, Glenorchy, Milford Sound, Hokitika, Greymouth and Queenstown. EXPENDITURES: ACTIVITIES – $38.32 per day **Although there were two of us travelling, all prices below are what I spent, so are PER PERSON!** As with the North Island, activities were our main source of outgoings. I spent $505 in the North Island plus $529 on a skydive, totalling $1034. We spent a little more on the South Island – $1188.20. Some of the biggest spends included a dolphin trip in Kaikoura, a stargazing trip in Lake Tekapo, a boat trip on Milford Sound and kayaking at Abel Tasman. The biggest spend by far was our Franz Josef glacier hike which was $449 out of the $1188.20 total, but totally worth every penny! […]

Rehab Queenstown || A Small Company with a Big Vision for the Future!

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

Situated on New Zealand’s South Island, Queenstown is well-known for being the ‘adventure capital of the world’. With so many opportunities to take part in throwing yourself off something high in one way or another, it’s definitely an adventure-seeker’s paradise. Add four ski fields, a bunch of bars and a tonne of hospo jobs into the mix and you can see why so many travellers never leave! With so many bars, clubs and restaurants, it’s easy to gorge yourself on beer and fast food (I’m looking at you, $5 Dominoes). If you are feeling a little rough the morning after, there is one place in town that can be sure to reinvigorate you with some nutritional healing. As I do with every new place, I researched what vegan options Queenstown had to offer. I found there were no 100% vegan or vegetarian places, but a couple of vegan-friendly restaurants that offered dairy and meat free choices. One place in particular caught my attention for offering the most vegan options and healthier alternatives, so one lunch time I headed down to Rehab. Although not vegan or vegetarian due to offering meals containing eggs, chicken and salmon, Rehab undoubtedly understands veganism and […]

Atlas & Boots’ top 10 posts of 2017

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Let’s face it: 2017’s been a bit of a dumpster fire. The consequences of Brexit are becoming clear here at home in the UK while over the pond in the US, Trump’s administration has promised disaster for the environment.

At Atlas & Boots, it’s been a mixed year. On a professional level, we passed 200,000 monthly users on the site, hit a milestone in monthly income and accepted an invitation to become brand ambassadors for Lonely Planet. On a personal level, however, we’ve had serious illness and bereavement in our families. So, yes: a mixed year.

World’s most powerful passport 2018

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Ten years ago, in my first job after graduation, I shared an office with a guy called Munir who I nicknamed Dr^2 because he not only had a PhD but was also qualified as a medical doctor. (I recognise it’s not the wittiest name in the world but it was the best I could do at the time.)

Munir loved learning British colloquialisms (“armchair critic”, “fairweather friend”), played loud Arabic music while he worked and held a Jordanian passport. One day, he came into work clearly frustrated and announced that he was giving up on travelling. Stationed in the UK for three years, he thought he would have a great opportunity to see Europe while he was here. Alas, his passport was so restrictive that securing visas became distinctly Sisyphean. He as a doctor (twice over) had fewer rights than I did as a new grad just because of our passports.

New Zealand NORTH ISLAND Travel Budget || Breakdown of what I spent in 5 weeks

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

We spent five weeks (34 days) exploring New Zealand’s North Island and documented everything I spent along the way! After landing in Auckland, we bought a campervan and travelled up to Cape Reinga, back down and around to Hamilton and the Coromandel and then down the coast to Tauranga. We also visited Rotorua, Taupo, Hobbiton and Fielding before finishing our North Island travels in Wellington. The budget doesn’t include the two weeks we spent living in Auckland, looking for the campervan – it starts from our first day on the road. Looking for my budget for the South Island? The map below shows some of the main areas we visited: EXPENDITURES: ACTIVITIES – $14.85 per day **Although there were two of us travelling, all prices below are what I spent, so are PER PERSON!** As New Zealand is known for being one of the most adventurous countries in the world, it’s not surprising that activities were our main source of spending. I’d never done a skydive before, so when in Taupo, I went for the full package, complete with photos and video. This set me back $529 – nearly a quarter of my total spend! Excluding the skydive, the rest of the North Island activities (entry […]

“This is Africa”: useful mantra or ugly prejudice?

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Africa, more than any other continent, has a PR problem. Popular culture tells the west that Africa is a land of conflict and famine where progress is slow and corruption is rife. Even the ‘better’ half of Africa is riddled with cliché: the giant red sun, dry, open savannah and fearsome tribes in native garms.

The most pervasive cliché perhaps comes wrapped in a snappy epithet: ‘This is Africa’ or its diminutive form, TIA.

TOP TIPS FOR BUYING A CAMPERVAN IN NEW ZEALAND || INCLUDING PDF GUIDE!

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

When planning our trip to New Zealand, we knew we wanted to explore the country’s epic scenery by campervan. We’d heard so many people say it was the best thing they’d ever done and how you just don’t get the same experiences travelling by bus. Three months in and we totally agree! We can’t imagine travelling by public transport, now we’ve experienced the freedom of living in a van. If you decide that’s how you’d like to see New Zealand, you then face the decision of whether to hire a campervan or buy one. After looking at the extortionate prices for hiring, we decided we’d be better off buying our own. It actually worked out cheaper! It was our first time purchasing a campervan, so we did a lot of research and ended up with a great van. I thought I’d put this post together to help anyone looking to buy a campervan  (or any other vehicle) in New Zealand – you won’t regret it! 🙂 TOP TIPS FOR BUYING A CAMPERVAN IN NEW ZEALAND Give yourself at least two weeks to find the perfect van. You can look at ads online for before arriving and could even book in some viewings, but you […]

THE TIPSY VEGAN || Review of Norwich’s New Vegan Restaurant & Cocktail Bar

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

Yep, you read that right! A brand new addition to Norwich’s ever-growing list of vegan eateries… and this time it involves cocktails! The lovely ladies at the Bia Kitchen had such a great reaction to their market stall that they have stepped it up a notch, opening their own permanent place on St Benedict’s street. This new cocktail bar and restaurant ‘The Tipsy Vegan‘ serves up a different menu to their popular diner classics found on their market stall, alongside a very fancy, bespoke range of cocktails designed by Knowhere Special. I’m talking ‘House-Infused Beetroot Gin, Activated Charcoal, Mint, Lemon and Ginger Beer’ kinda fancy….   I was lucky enough to be in Norwich the day they opened to the public and didn’t think twice about booking myself in for dinner. On arriving, me and my sister (also vegan) were greeted with a super friendly welcome and shown to our seat. The place features a small ‘dining’ area with tables, a more laid back ‘drinking’ area and a couple of extra tables near the bar. We were seated in the dining area and immediately scanned the menu to see what we wanted to order. Luckily we have very similar tastes, so both […]

Leap of faith: hiking to the vertiginous Tigray churches

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

I was feeling uncharacteristically nervous. It wasn’t the narrow ledges with sheer drops that had me spooked, but the prospect of climbing with ropes – something I’d never done before.

On viewing Abuna Yemata Guh, however, you can understand why ropes are sensible. This rock-hewn church in the Gheralta region of Ethiopia is carved into the side of a vertical spire of rock with 200m (650ft) drops on all sides. To reach it, you must scale a sheer wall of rock and inch along a precipitous ledge, all in bare feet. In fact, Abuna Yemata Guh is said to be the world’s least accessible place of worship.

FREEDOM CAMPING IN NEW ZEALAND EXPLAINED || Self-Contained Vs Non Self-Contained Vehicles

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

We’d heard the terms ‘Freedom Camping’ and ‘Self-Contained’ thrown around in articles we’d read before arriving in New Zealand, but didn’t have much of an idea as to what it really meant. When we decided to purchase a campervan to travel and live in, we did a lot of research. We looked into what kind of van we needed and where we would be allowed to camp. There was no easy-to-read article anywhere online, so I’ve put this post together as a useful resource for anyone wanting to travel around New Zealand in a car or campervan. Self-Contained vs Non Self-Contained This is something that you’ll become aware of when looking to purchase a campervan. Some vehicles will be advertised as ‘self-contained’ and are usually quite a bit more expensive than their non self-contained equivalent. This is because being self-contained earns the inhabitants the right to park in lots of places, free of charge. Therefore, you can easily save back the extra money within the first few weeks as you won’t be paying out $10-40 per night for campsites or hostels. In order to be certified as ‘self-contained’, the vehicle needs to be inspected by a registered company with the right to grant […]

How Much To Budget For New Zealand? || Breakdown of what I spent in 9.5 weeks on the North and South Islands

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

As you might have already seen, I’ve written a full breakdown of what I spent on each of the Islands in New Zealand: North Island Travel Budget South Island Travel Budget I thought it might also be useful to have a quick post detailing the total expenditure for my entire 9.5 week trip. This way I can work out a rough idea for you, of how much to budget for New Zealand! I’ll list the spending categories below with the total spend and what that works out to be per day. EXPENDITURES: (Total spend in 9.5 weeks/ 65 days) ACCOMMODATION – $277 / $4.26 per day ACTIVITIES – $2,222.20 / $34.18 per day FOOD – $1020.23 / $15.69 per day DIESEL* – $644.77 / $9.91 per day EXTRAS – $566.94 / $8.72 per day VAN STUFF – $126.40 / $1.94 per day CLOTHES – $225.86 / $3.47 per day This meant that our average spend each day in New Zealand was NZ$78.17 / £44 / US$56. BUT please bear in mind this doesn’t include the cost of us buying the campervan and paying for insurance/ WOF/ registration/ repairs etc. After selling our campervan at the end of the trip and […]

Brunch at The Origin in Christchurch || AMAZING Vegan Pancakes and some fancy Tea!

by thewildlife @ The Wild Life | Travel & Vegan Food Blog

Christchurch has over twenty veggie friendly cafes and restaurants but only one with a 100% vegan menu. Based in St Albans, a fifteen minute walk outside of the city centre, The Origin promotes itself as somewhere people can come to relax and enjoy delicious (rather fancy) tea or coffee and a healthy, ‘pure’ meal. This means no meat, eggs, dairy, garlic or onion. Due to advertising themselves as a heathy eatery rather than using the term ‘vegan’, The Origin has previously been described as Christchurch’s secret vegan restaurant! I went along for brunch one morning and immediately loved how open the place felt as I walked inside. Some of the seating curves around to the right, away from the bar, which offers up some great spots to get cosy with a good book and a steaming pot of tea! Everything is very white and minimalistic yet they still manage to achieve a cosy and relaxed vibe which I really enjoyed. They also offer free (decent) wifi which is a big bonus as so many places in New Zealand don’t! They have a small breakfast menu made up of four completely house-made dishes; muesli, porridge, pancakes and scrambled tofu. For lunch, choices include a […]

Exploring Gondar castle in the ‘Camelot of Africa’

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Gondar castle is improbable. It’s improbable in size, style and design, but mostly in location. After all, this is Ethiopia and if TIA is to be believed, we should be looking at desertscapes dotted with baobab trees, not a Camelot in the sun.

Gondar castle in the fortress city of Fasil Ghebbi indeed evokes legends of yore. This shouldn’t be such a surprise given the Great Mosque of Djenné and Africa’s other architectural wonders, but I find the evocation of medieval Europe astonishing, perhaps more so because as Ethiopians will tell you, theirs is one of only two African countries that were never colonised (the other being Liberia).

Best-selling camping and hiking gear of 2017

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

In general, I don't tend to spend much money on clothing and non-photography related gadgets. I am comfortable enough loafing around in jeans and a t-shirt. On top of that, I hate shopping with a vengeance. If I really focus, I can avoid shopping malls for most of the year, succumbing only in the lead up to Christmas.

That said, outdoor stores are a different kettle of fish. I can while away hours wandering the aisles, leafing through maps and checking out the latest lightweight gadgets.
