    My Top 10 Vegan Dishes from Around the World

    For some time, the global pandemic has not allowed us to travel as we wish to. So I’ve been looking for ways to escape my daily life and travel a little bit in other ways, such as learning foreign languages (although this passion is much older than the pandemic) or world cuisine. Travelling is also about the taste buds.   In this article, I’m presenting my top 10 vegan dishes from around the world. Why vegan? I am a vegetarian with a strong vegan tendency, for several reasons (which I will perhaps detail in a future article).

    I Dream of a Better World

    “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs     Utopia. I discovered this concept and this literary genre during my school years, as a teenager. It immediately captivated the idealist and dreamer in me. Originally, “utopia” means “(which is) in no place”. By extension, a utopia is considered an ideal that is deemed unattainable.   I dream of a better world. From the start, this dream sounds like a sweet utopia. People will blame me for not being down-to-earth, for being unrealistic. We live in a world where idealism and utopia are equated with naivety.   And…
