Zero waste swaps for manageable new habits

We’re a month and a few days into our Zero Plastic / Low Waste lifestyle and it has been a great journey so far. But there is still something that I struggle with when making zero waste swaps and I’m sure you do, too.

Exploring social media and and blogs I see the same products over and over again. And people DIY-ing their own napkins, cleaning clothes, products, makeup, you name it!

And I’ve been thinking to myself. Is it still possible to have a sense of personal style and identity and go zero waste? Is it possible to not lose yourself in the process?

Climbing in Tenerife: All you need to know to plan your trip

Of all the places I have top roped and bouldered Spain, climbing in Tenerife has been one of the most spectacular. The little island just off the cost of North Africa is ideal for both sports and getting a bit of sun.

This super tranquil island is sure to blow you away and it isn’t full of too many tourists that you will have a difficult time getting around or getting to climb. It feels just like a small pueblo of mainland Spain, but it’s so much more! And, there are climbs for all levels.

Mexico City in 20 Pictures: Pujol & The Anthropology Museum

When I traveled to Mexico City I didn’t know what to expect. But my sensation after spending a long weekend there was, wow this is a place I think I could live.

Amazing food, friendly people, and an incredible culture. You can stay in an excellent hotel, in a safe area, that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. And many parts are walkable!

Mexican food is one of my favorite cusines. We had the change to try authentic quesadillas from a street vender. And also, to eat at Michelin Star restaurant Pujol. The meal was divine, super elaborated and flavorful. And the best part, he price was reasonable!

Travel to Menorca just before high season to take advantage of these beautiful sights with little or not other tourist competing for your space on the beach. The calm of being one of very few visitors and spending less make the vacation all the more worthwhile.

Caving, a thrilling adventure sport

I love trying new adventure sports, so when I got the opportunity to join some former co-workers spelunking, or caving, last year, I jumped on the opportunity. From my experience as a rock climber the movements came quite naturally.
