Folks and Fables Cafe

The other day we finally managed to get a whole day off together for the first time in about a month,  and Ryan planned a suprise trip out for the day. So with me driving and him giving me blind directions badly we headed off down the A46 to I didn’t know where… This resulted in a few heated words and me going round a few round-a-bouts twice,  accidently heading down the A1 and turning around again,  as I tried to follow his vague directions on where we were going. We ended up in Bingham. I had never been here before … and more importantly had strangely never heard of the Plant based cafe/ restaurant / awesome community space called Folks and Fables. These guys opened I believe around 6 months ago and have created almost the perfect balance of a cafe using their space to benefit community events and establish a welcoming creative space. They have a big calender painted on the side entrance wall announcing life drawing events,  yoga classes and more. They …

An Hour In Inverness

As anyone that knows Ryan and I will know,  our trips where ever we go will always start and end with a mission to find the best coffee and vegan food we can find … whatever the time frame. Today we had an hour,  enough time to grab some food and coffee before heading off to have a look at Loch Ness. Granted Inverness is not huge so it wasn’t the biggest challenge,  even with 3 dogs in tow. Here’s what we came up with in that hour…. Little Bird Coffee House We have been carrying our thermos and travel coffee kit around with us everytime we have left the cabin since we arrived in the Highlands. .. but today was the first day we have had the pleasure of having coffee made by someone else. We did a little search for local craft coffee places when we arrived and this place came up top. I think alot of cafes forget that it’s not only the ability to prepare and sell great coffee that makes …

Food Adventures in Tuscany

Things have been absolutely crazy since getting back from Italy, and I regret that it has taken me this long to do another post! We fly out to the ship again this Saturday, so I am enjoying my last week in England for about a year, and loving the cold weather and the beginning of Autumn… by far my most favourite season. It was so warm in Italy, the cold shocked me when we got back. Simple things like remembering to wear socks now its cold… it sounds so stupid but after spending almost the last 2 years in summer it really was a  major oversight! Pretty happy to be skipping another English winter this year in exchange for sun shine, ocean, islands and trying to help out some marine life. Tuscany was such an amazing place and can’t wait to go back there one day. Just the simple fact that we never had to worry about where we could get food, so chosing restaurants where all our family could eat… absolutely everywhere was vegan …
