  • The Best Vegan Spots in Bangkok

    There’s a dish that automatically springs to mind when people think of Thailand: Pad Thai! It also happens to be one of my favourite dishes in the world and when I first visited Thailand in 2012 I ate Pad Thai almost everyday. Back then I wasn’t vegan, so chicken, prawns or eggs weren’t an issue and I could order whatever I wanted from the menu. This time though, with my stricter requirements it was still as easy to find amazing meals! You might be concerned about visiting Bangkok as a vegan, but you really shouldn’t be, I’ve put together this vegan guide to Bangkok to show you just how easy…

Maybe even as big as getting married to the love of my life. Going plant-based (and subsequently vegan) is a change that has affected almost every part of my life; not just my weight loss. The beautiful truth, I discovered is that (after two years of skeptical research and fact-finding) was that not only can a person…

  • Why I stopped meditating and replaced it with something much more powerful

    I lost faith in formal meditation on a flight from Melbourne to Hong Kong. I was in a state of fully-fledged anxiety that had been present for the past three days and had no signs of it letting up. While I attempted to cure my anxiety with mindfulness, my meditation practice actually made me feel even more anxious. It didn’t matter whether I tried to slow down my thoughts, or just sat with my thoughts and listened, or whether I attempted to be particularly present in the aeroplane listening to the sounds and seeing what was around me.
