The Spookiest Time of the Year

If you missed last month's update, find it here: "Alaskan Cruise, Homemade Sushi, and a New Camera"

We spent the month catching up on writing, editing, and coming up with new ideas for Wanderlust Vegans. We hope you are still enjoying our road trip across Canada posts! We are almost on the other side of Canada in our travel diaries.

We spent a lot of time in the kitchen preparing delicious meals. We have both been working a lot and going to hot yoga as much as we can.

This month our vegan guide is for Zagreb, Croatia. We had lots of fun hanging out with friends in Zagreb and we enjoyed seeing the city as well. Did you know that Croatia invented the necktie? Now you know. Of course, we got some vegan food around the city while we were there so we made a short guide for everyone. This is for when you're in Zagreb and hungry..  (Remember we share a new Vegan Guide the second Sunday of every month). Check back next month for our vegan guide on Vancouver, BC, Canada.

We had a great Thanksgiving meal with our family where everything was vegan except for the meat dishes. There was plenty of excellent food on our plates including some pineapple juice flavoured yams. Somehow we failed to get pictures of that meal but we don't tend to take pictures of everything we eat despite how it may appear.

Our friend had an excellent idea to host a Thanksgiving potluck. There were a couple other people going that are mostly plant-based as well and there were some gluten-free people too. In order to accommodate everyone, we all tried to bring gluten-free and vegan dishes. Everyone got really into it and there were great vegan dishes. There was way too much food there so we were all incredibly full by the end of the night. We sat around the fire and feasted.

The weather has not been too great but that's to be expected in October. One day it will be hot and sunny, the next a rainstorm. At least we got to capture this beautiful rainbow after the storm.

We have been really enjoying making our own vegan sushi. Do you love to eat vegan sushi? Why not learn how it's done and make it at home. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than going out and then you can put whatever you want inside it instead of the usual veggie stuff. Unless you are lucky enough to live near a vegan sushi restaurant, like Sushi Momo in Montreal, then chances are your vegan sushi options are a little limited. What a great reason to Do It Yourself!

We have been bragging so much about our sushi that we had our friends over to try it out. They appeared to confirm that the sushi we've been making is excellent so we were happy about that. Would you like us to make you sushi? Buy our plane tickets and we will be right over!

For our travel tips this month we shared our favourite places in Europe to visit, VEGANISED!. 'Best Places [Veganised] to Visit in Europe' (Remember to check back the third Sunday of every month for more travel tips from us.)

We have also been doing a lot of hot yoga this month and we build up quite the appetite. This is a breakfast we had after out Saturday morning hot flow class.

This month on our spotlight series we throw back to a trip to Tofino BC. 'That Time we Went Whale Watching in Tofino, BC'. We spent the weekend there back in 2012 around the time we went to Cuba. We published our third post. 'Spotlight' is our newest series that we post the fourth Sunday of every month

Other than working a lot, watching the complete series of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and making our own meals. We currently have no upcoming trips but have sooooo much content to edit from previous trips.

Since this month has five Sundays, we put together Ultimate guides to cities and places we spend long periods of time in. These posts will be posted on the Fifth Sunday of all the months that have five. Keep your eyes peeled for our next Ultimate Vegan Guide.This month we posted our VEGAN DELIGHTS in NANAIMO, BC.  If you are planning a trip to Vancouver Island, bring our helpful guide along with you.

For Halloween, we carved a pumpkin and roasted the seeds. Yum.
  We heard the autumn leaves on Vancouver Island are the most colourful they have been in some time. We went on a couple nature walks to capture the beauty.
We've been enjoying Autumn, our favourite season. The leaves are nicely coloured and the air is crisp. We had a nice day exploring and we made it to the Shady Mile to display our Jack o' Lantern after Halloween. It's a tradition in Nanaimo to take your pumpkins to the Shady Mile which is along Jingle Pot Road.
