Our Best – and Worst – Accommodations in Egypt

Our Best - and Worst - Accommodations in Egypt

Egypt is definitely an impressive, surprising and overwhelming country. Just as extremely different – in a positive and negative way – as our memories of the Pharaonic country are, was our experience with the accommodation on site. We checked out everything from a noble 5-star hotel and a water park resort, guesthouses and hostels to a completely dirty and shabby 5-dollar-hovel! Here you can find out which places we can recommend – and which ones not at all. Continue reading “Our Best – and Worst – Accommodations in Egypt”

Should You Be Vegan?: HealthLabs.com Creates New Vegan Tests

Should You Be Vegan?: HealthLabs.com Creates New Vegan Tests

The vegan lifestyle has an endless list of advantages, regardless of whether they are ethical (less animal cruelty), environmental (reduced carbon footprint) or social (distributive justice). Contrary to the widespread myth of malnutrition, there are lots of health benefits, too. These include, for example, a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and hypertension. What’s more, by renouncing animal products, you automatically avoid even antibiotics and growth hormone found in meats and dairy foods. Nevertheless, attention should be paid to a balanced diet, as well as the intake of all important nutrients – as with any other diet. To test just that, HealthLabs.com has developed several test panels to monitor nutrient levels and look for animal-derived product allergies.

Vegan in Egypt

When asked for the most vegan-friendly places in our travel community on Facebook, one country rarely appears in the comments: Egypt. Completely unjustified – in our opinion. Because in the two months we have traveled criss-cross through the land of the Pharaohs, we feasted absolutely deliciously on falafel, foul, date cookies, fresh fruit, koshary, cashew ice cream, caramel latte with cashew and almond milk, tahina, baba ganoush and hummus and did not have to go hungry at all! What is also special here is that you get almost all of these goodies for just a few pennies. How and where exactly, you will get to know here. Continue reading “Vegan in Egypt”

Fuerteventura: Endless Sand Dunes

Fuerteventura: Endless Sand Dunes

After Tenerife, with almost 1,700 square kilometers of island area, Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands. With about 66 inhabitants per square kilometer, it is sparsely populated. In return, the oldest canary island (about 20.6 million years) offers wide sandy beaches and the protected Parque Natural de Corralejo with large shifting dunes. The almost one hundred kilometer long island is also particularly popular with water sports enthusiasts, such as surfers on the west coast, windsurfers in the north and kitesurfers on the east coast.
