As a gourmet, I’ve studied the food culture around the world, so I think I should totally share some of my thoughts on this blog these days. International travel question: what is the future of our food? How can we feed the 2.5 billion more people – an extra China and India – likely to be alive in 2050? According to the United Nations (UN) food production must be doubled, new technologies adopted, waste avoided. There are already one billion chronically hungry people, climate change will only make farming harder to grow food in most places, the oceans are overfished, and [...]

I’ve traveled the world already, and I’ve proud of my experiences as well as what I’ve learned along the way. Now I’m a vegetarian officially and I’d like to share my thoughts on this topic today. A new understanding of vegan food after traveling the world: Even as it was unfolding in the first cold days of Veganuary 2019, the launch of the Greggs vegan sausage roll felt like something marketing experts and cultural commentators would be pulling apart for years to come. What is certain is that it was good for Greggs: its profits leapt more than 50%, to £40.6m, [...]
Our planet has a rich culture and fascinating history. Please allow me to share my international travel journal with you on this blog. The beauty of Belgium (international travel journal – Entry 1): Flanders, in the European country, Belgium, famed for its medieval cities and motorways that can be seen from space, is one of the most urban corners of Europe. Yet, this densely populated area is seeing a mini-boom in a new type of agriculture where farmers sell direct to consumers. The movement, known as community-supported agriculture, is the antithesis of the sprawling global distribution chains of modern industrial food [...]
As a fashionista, I’ve always wanted to go to Eastern Europe and explore local fashion in the mysterious region. I feel very lucky because I’ve had the chance to make my dream come true! A word about vintage clothes: In my view, vintage clothing is just a way of wearing history (Think Mad Men)! Vintages clothes can be more than secondhand – in fact, they are an art form, a collector’s passion, with a story to tell and sentimental value. Basically, an item isn’t really vintage unless it dates from 1910-1979. Earlier than that, it’s clearly antique; later than that, it’s [...]
I went to Eastern Europe earlier this year and it was a perfect experience! During this very enlightening Eastern European trip, I was thoroughly entertained. Please let me explain. 😉 I had a movie night every other night. My coach invited me to join a fashion retreat in Eastern Europe and one of the assignments was to see a movie which involves some impressive fashion every other night throughout the retreat. It was a very interesting task because it forced me to have fun (I could become anxious easily and couldn’t relax, so I totally needed that)! I saw these movies [...]
“Don’t be too hard on yourself,” says my best friend Alex, “You have very high expectations and you expect yourself to be perfect often. Just be kind to yourself, okay?” I remember Alex’s words so vividly. But hearing something is one thing; truly understanding it is another. I didn’t fully understand what Alex means until I had a European trip last year. I learned the importance of focusing on my strengths. I’m a naturally quiet person, and I thought that’s my weakness. But when I went to Europe, I realized that I’m a pensive and thoughtful person – that’s actually a [...]
Traveling internationally is the most effective mood lifters in the world because it can release endorphins in your body, thereby creating feelings of euphoria, reduces stress, and blocks pain. It is reported that travel and dancing release more endorphins than any other activity! If you can’t go to the gym…. Not every hotel has a gym, so if you can’t go to the gym when you are traveling internationally, ten minutes of deep breaths and stretching makes a difference as well! Inhale for 4 counts, hold it for 6, and breathe out for 8. Repeat 5 times and remember to drop [...]
Experts from aUkraine travel agency have kindly offered their helpful advice on how to improve health and wellbeing while traveling in Ukraine. Without further ado, let’s check it out! Travel reduces cortisol efficiently. In modern-day society, many people are highly stressed. Stress increases cortisol which is the stress hormone produced by adrenal glands. Cortisol is a fight-or-flight, life-saving hormone which gets you through acute challenges like danger or infection. It literally changes your physiology in ways that improve short-term survival, e.g. raising blood pressure & increasing heart rate. Cortisol also increases your blood sugar & makes you more alert to give [...]

A major study in Australia indicates that at least 30% of Australians suffer from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Further examination shows that the modern lifestyle in western countries is not really supporting mental health these days (think social media and smartphones). Therefore, a large number of psychologists are recommending various ways to reduce stress, and one of these effective methods is international travel. Travel can cure anxiety disorder, including hypervigilance. According to Professor Kevin Gournay (author of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Recovery after accident and disaster), physical exercise may cure hypervigilance because exercise burns off arousal. Clearly, international [...]
