a #barcelona (food) take-away, is that this is a pretty great place to be if you are wanting to eat in a healthful, planet-friendly way... finding plant-based foods were easy, and thanks to female Chef #TeresaCarles ' restaurant 'empire' eating out, and eating well, alongside flexitarian friends is absolutely accessible! In Barcelona, it was a breath of fresh air to find some plant-based options prepared with local ingredients prepared in Catalan and Spanish styles, and emphasis on the providence of ingredient, not on its quantity of superfoods... which makes a whole lot of sense for a city staunch about their own providence. Gracies/Gracias Barcelona! #plantbasedtraveller#adventuresinfood#foodculture#futureoffood#walkingthroughflavours#flaxandkale
Sweet photo, right?
Swipe for the 'before' video...
We need to start taking better care of our playground and this incredible planet. What you can't see in this photo is the colossal amount of rubbish that washes up on the beach with every high tide. It's not from the campers, it actually just comes straight out of the sea, carried here from other parts of Hong Kong. They even have someone employed to pack it all into a mountain of rubbish bags, and the motorised cart full of crap he collected in a day was bigger than a car... This isn't only OUR playground, people. We just happen to be its most egotistical inhabitants. 🐾👣 .
Left this stunning beach feeling even more inspired to tread a little lighter. Swimming through plastic freaks me out. Going to get some more reusable bags for my wallet/backpack/daypack so I can't ever be caught without them! Any cool tips for reducing the waste you contribute to, guys?
Ok, rant over. Hope you're having a great Wednesday! Peace out! #MHAWNZ
does anyone actually read the description?
Good morning! ⛺️🏕
Slept with the tent unzipped and woke up looking straight out at this view. Not a bad place to chill out and get some work done! Also, how many other major cities in the world let you camp in their backyard for free when it looks like this? #thankshongkong#whaddup30dollartent 🎥 Video coming soon! .
Sleeping outdoors always makes you feel incredibly alive and wake up excited and ready for the day. I'm so much more at home out here. Loving the stars, fresh air, sandy feet, and bright colours of the tents set up all down the beach. #yestherearestarsinhongkong#MHAWNZ

Check out the video on this epic sunrise hike in China if you haven't already! #linkinbio
We grew up doing bush walks (day hikes) in New Zealand, but the view from the top of this one looks a little different from the landscape back home! #MHAWNZ
Sunrise hikes got me like...
"Welcome to today. Another day, another chance, feel free to change."
Really feeling this quote this morning!
Up at the crack of dawn for a stunning sunrise over Yangshuo, China. These are the experiences I travel for. #thehikealmostkilledme#wortheverystep ❊

We trekked the streets of the La Latina neighbourhood in Madrid searching for a tapas locale with favourite vegetarian tapas dishes... setas a la plancha, berejenas , patatas bravas but found in this barrio, meat and fish dominated the tapas menus. We soon abandoned our tapas hopes and were rewarded with 100% #plantbased goodness @viva_burger . Albeit delicious, its interesting how instead of veganifying ones own food culture classics, the vegan restaurant trend is to work with generic #comfortfoods , American or junk style foods. We need to recreate our food culture classics to embody a kindness to planet, and animals... in order to preserve food culture, whilst updating our way of eating to be in line with where we are at as a planet. #madrid#plantbasedtraveller#traveldiary#veganmadrid
✈︎ Travel Day... ✈︎
2am start. Train, airport, plane, airport, plane, airport... #chasingsummer .
When you ditch everything to go see the world and chase adventure, you picture the beaches, mountains, forests, cities, cultures and people ...not the travel days. Sleeping in airports, spending entire days on the bus, and crawling out of bed at 2am to drag your tired butt to the train station are not exactly #instamoments . But four hours later, when the sun rises and you're somewhere new, it's all worth it again!
📷 Throwback to the Cook Islands, because my half-asleep/sweaty face sprinting through terminals is something I save for the vlogs 😋
"Go someplace where no one knows your name..."
My top two apps for finding the cheapest flights are:
• Skyscanner - awesome for anywhere
• Ctrip - great for Asia!
What are the best travel websites you guys use?
Booking flights today to head off again and go find somewhere new to explore. Got the next three weeks planned, then no clue! 😅Anyone want to come with?
