Inside my vegan hand luggage

Yesterday morning my mum and I got back from our awesome weekend trip to Amsterdam. Our flight was at 7am, so we had to get up at half 4 and now I am feeling majorly jet-lagged (can you even get jet lag from a one hour time-difference? I thinks so!)

This was my first trip abroad as a vegan so I was a little unsure how the food situation would be. However, I decided that if worst came to worst, I’d have lots of fresh fruit and veggies – YUM!

As we only went away for the weekend, we didn’t check in any bags and packed everything in our hand luggage, *gulp*! I used to find this such a struggle but since I’ve been travelling more for work, I’ve got pretty good at cramming a few day’s worth of stuff into a small bag!

I thought it’d be fun to give you a peek inside my bag to see my travel essentials for a weekend away and check out the cute tiny toiletries I took with me (I love tiny toiletries) – everything is cruelty free of course.

  1. Knowing you, I’m impressed you managed to pack everything in one bag! Sounds like you had a great time, and a good looking forward to seeing how the Dutch do vegan! x

  2. How was Amsterdam? I really want to go there. Also, what’s the Dr Organic toothpaste like? I’m trying to find a natural SLS and fluoride free toothpaste and all the ones I’ve tried so far are disgusting, I need to find one that doesn’t taste vile and does the job!x

    1. Amsterdam was incredible, everyone is so friendly and it has such a cool vibe :).
      I’m working on a blog post at the moment about my trip & what I ate there so that should be up later today!
      I’m a huge fan of the Doctor Organic toothpaste, it’s cruelty-free and I think it tastes pretty good so is definitely worth a try.
      I just had a little look at your blog & really like it, thanks for connecting x

      1. Ooh I must go there soon, looking forward to reading your blog about it. It was a toss up between going there and Barcelona, and Barcelona won this time! Do you find it difficult finding vegan food whilst travelling? Great thanks, I will give it a go and see if I like the taste. Thanks very much, I really appreciate that 🙂

      2. How exciting – Barcelona is awesome too! I went there for a long weekend last year but I was vegetarian at the time so unfortunately can’t recommend any good vegan places. However, Maoz – a place I visited in Amsterdam – have a restaurant in Barcelona, it’s a great place to have lunch on-the-go! Amsterdam was my first trip as a vegan and it was a lot easier than I expected, I think doing a little bit of research beforehand is definitely useful & having lots of fresh fruit as a back up. Have a great time in Barcelona – let me know what awesome vegan food you find :).
