US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsvile, Alabama, USA

Genki Husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary this last week.  For a special celebration we decided it might be entertaining just to pick a state we haven’t adventured to just yet and go for it.  Seeing as we have been to most NASA centers around the world, we decided we should celebrate a decade together by adventuring the moon and back.  This led us to Huntsville, Alabama, USA.

Evil Czech Brewery Vegan Options

No Longer Serving Vegans

Veganism can be hard in a location that has few options when dining out.  So, vegans tend to collect together and flock to restaurants that are vegan friendly.  So it is a sad, sad day since I have to announce that the Evil Czech Brewery in Mishawaka, Indiana no longer has vegan options.

Fish Ladder & White Water Training Course: South Bend, Indiana

South Bend Fish ladder

South Bend, Indiana is full of little surprises of the past still present in the modern day.  As outsiders looking in we see the old sitting in the past, not moving a muscle.  We took a walk around the St. Joseph River in downtown South Bend a few weeks ago and were reading all the city signs.  Apparently this is a city with a rich history in the industrial industry race.  A lot of these famous industry start-ups have moved on to different locations but the waterways are still present and slowly being redirected to new horizons.

My Experience Buying a Bike

Spring at Notre Dame 2015Shall I become a biker gal instead of a runner?  Not sure if I mentioned this to all of you before leaving Virginia, Genki Husband made me donate my bike since it was from my childhood.  It was bright pink and purple, who wouldn’t want it right?  Well, it was a bit too small and it did have some drawbacks so I can see why he wanted me to get a new one but….  oh the memories I made with it.  Seeing my last bike was over 20 years old and from KMart, I had no idea just how far behind I was when it came to bikes.  Hopefully my experience will assist you:

Working around Social Anxiety at the Gym

Lately I have been remiss at writing articles and have reverted towards photo blogging instead of sharing personal experiences through daily blogging.  As I was talking to a strikingly catalytic friend on a morning pup walk, I realized I have been consumed with catching up after our move to Indiana to which I have almost omitted fitness blog postings.  Without physical fitness, one can not live a healthy whole life.  Hence, I wanted to write to you today expressing how I have been dealing with a new gym and working out with unfamiliar people while dealing with my social anxiety.

Vegan in Nappannee, IN, USAThis post has been waiting for a while to be posted, maybe a month!  So please forgive me for keeping you in the lurk if you are a follower of my Instagram account.  I posted photos during our first two trips to this tiny town in Indiana.  We wanted to visit this new city that is about 45 minutes from South Bend, Indiana. It’s an easy drive and if you like to look at the landscape of corn fields, it’s very pretty.  Here are our adventures with the two trips to this city.

Pho from Bowl of Pho in Mishawaka, IN Have I told you my latest adventure?  As many of you already know, I do speak a few different languages but have always wanted to learn more.  It’s my dream to be a polyglot some day where I can travel the world and speak to many different people and learn their stories in his/her own native tongue.  Translations are nice but as I was just talking about this with a neighbor from Poland we both came to the conculsion there is something that gets lots in a crossover between the languages.  Sometimes I go to speak something in Japanese or German because it is more meaningful in the other language.  To someone that does not speak another language, this may sound strange but to those of you whom do you will understand this statement.  It’s hard to explain…

Spring Meals Vegan #vegan #recipe #meal #ideas #springLately we have been gearing up and trying to find the early vegan spring produce – so excited it’s spring!  Our first trip to the farmers market was two weekends ago in South Bend, Indiana, USA.  Unfortunately there was not much there from local farmers but FL definitely is making some bucks right now on the Eastern Coast.  With that said, I want to share some of the meals we have been devouring lately thanks to the inspiration of fresh produce.

The Mark Dine & Tap: Revisited

The Mark Dine and Tap in South Bend, IN, USA next to the University of Notre Dame

Just about a month ago I mentioned a South Bend, Indiana, USA restaurant that has vegan options.  At the time, Genki Husband was the only one that had enjoyed the food (minus the 1/4 sandwich from a doggie bag) so we intended to go back in later to check it out again together.  Sometimes restaurants are good the first time but then fall short the second.  This was not the case with The Mark though, hooray!  I love it when restaurants have consistently good food.  As mentioned before, the prices are a bit higher than say a fast-food joint but you pay for what you get and for me I’d rather pay a little extra for much better food.  Your health is important, so take good care of it.  We only get one body in life.  Check out our second experience at the link:
