Coming from Australia where vegan options are scarce, I figured things would be more or less the same in the land of bacon, poutine, and maple fudge. How wrong I was.
If you find yourself in Australia, a trip up the east coast is a must. It’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime bucket-list trips that even gets locals on-board, but many don’t make it all the way up to Port Douglas, and I can tell you right now, they’re missing out.
I was really excited at the prospect of entering Tallinn, so I don’t want to be a wet blanket and rain on my own parade or anything, but if I’m being really honest, I’d have to say navigating the Estonian public transport system at 7am after a 16-hour bus ride from Poland was not something I enjoyed doing. And I enjoy most challenges.
When I left for Europe, the only travel app I had was Appy Hour – the app that tells you where and when the best happy hour deals are on in Reykjavik. By the time I got home, I had a whole pile of apps given to me by other travellers – apps I’m not sure how I lived without.
I may have journeyed through Europe for four or five-months, met a heap of new people, stayed in dorms, and made lots of friends while travelling alone, but don’t be fooled – I am not an outgoing person.
