It’s been quite a while in the making, let me tell you. From an initial *ping* of an idea to – maybe I should do it? – to – yes, I actually should do it – and then: when am I going to get this finished?!

With 10 years of blogging behind me, I knew what I wanted to achieve, I just needed to get going. Eventually I gave myself a deadline. Then I set a reasonable deadline. Then I made a to-do list. Then I made a pre-launch to-do list, because, you know, lists of lists make to-do lists all the more fun. Then I actually started ticking things off my to-do list(s) and wham! Before I knew it I was live and rolling out the green carpet for this here website.

Every week I get messages asking for advice on how to go vegan, what to eat in certain cities, favourite recipes, useful websites – and I absolutely love answering them all. Seriously. The idea that someone is even considering spending a few days/months/years enjoying a vegan lifestyle is so exciting to me – and if I can help, oh I will. Because I know how daunting it can be at first – and how isolating it can seem – so if I can show you how exciting and delicious being vegan can be, I will. I became vegetarian in 1999 and vegan in 2005, and I’ve had a fair few questionable vegetable fingers and curdled lattes over the years.
