if you’ve followed me on instagram, twitter, or facebook this past week, you probably noticed that i was on the island of kauai.
i mingled with the locals! i met chickens (they are EVERYWHERE). i also met their babies. a lot of their babies. i met a few frogs, a couple crabs, and gently swam with some fish. plus, every morning, i was greeted by a large flock of the state bird of hawaii, the nene (this is not a real housewife from atlanta).
i am also pretty sure i ate my weight in mango, papaya, guava, pineapple and local veg tacos. this is the first time i traveled to kauai as a vegan. traveling can be stressful for those of us who choose a plant-based diet. but hawaii is different. when i ordered the local fare, no one rolled their eyes or scratched their head and said, “uh, do you eat cheese or fish?” traveling vegan was easy. and that was a real vacation.
