Animal Sanctuary, Tex Mex , Coffee and Cupcakes: Hillfields, Moseley and Kings Heath.
This weekend we stayed in Birmingham, it was a weekend full of vegan events! Yay! We love vegan events!
On Saturday we went to Wolverhampton. It was about an hour bus ride from us. Once we got to Wolverhampton it was about a 10 minute walk to the Vegan and Veggie Community BBQ.
|Saw this church on our walk.|
Oh, and did I mention everything was free!!
We meandered around city centre. We saw there is a bar called the Cuban Exchange which has free Wi-Fi, something that's hard to get in Cuba.

It was super hot and humid out, so we got back on the bus towards Birmingham and stopped at Tesco on the way. We bought strawberry and vanilla ice cream cones! yum! We haven't had these since before we became vegan. Now Tesco sells vegan cones!!!!!
|Cheers our cones!!|
Sunday we set off to Moseley to catch a ride to Hillfield's Animal Sanctuary. We decided to walk to Moseley, it took us about 1.5 hours. The walk was beautiful though. It was a lovely morning for a walk.
It was nice and green on the walk. See? Birmingham isn't just a concrete jungle.

Hillfields Animal Sanctuary was having an Open Day. We were able to visit all the animals like this goat.

|We had fun looking at the pig and the other animals as well.|
Mex It Up food stand. They are a vegan tex mex food stand.
We got some nachos, avocado slaw, and pulled jackfruit tacos. FYI, pulled jackfruit is pretty amazing. Try it if you have a chance. It's kind of the vegan version of pulled pork.
After Hillfields Animal Sanctuary our buddy showed us some cool places in Kings Heath such as this cafe. Kings Heath is another suburb of Birmingham.
Cherry Reds. It's pretty cosy in there.
The Beatles played here at the Ritz Ballroom in 1963 or 64 but the building burned down recently.
It was a good weekend overall. We had fun hanging out and exploring the area around Birmingham.
