Hi. I’m Leah,
a normal Midwestern girl, born and raised just outside of Detroit,
who moved away at 18 to go to university in Boston,
who always dreamed of traveling,
but thought I’d have to wait until retirement like most people,
but found an opportunity to get in touch with my ancestral roots in Poland,
where I met a boy who told me that anything is possible,
and although I wanted to believe him, everything I’d ever known told me “No”,
and I almost turned down the chance for a great adventure,
but found a note that had been hidden away in my purse,
and decided to miss my flight,
and found myself saying “Yes”,
which led to hitchhiking,
trying new foods,
making new friends,
going for a really long bike ride,
drinking in bathtubs,
building a raft,
finding love in new places,
and overcoming my fear of birds.
That’s how my adventure began, but it doesn’t end there. Welcome to The Vegetarian Traveller- I hope you enjoy my story.
I love this!! What a cool story ? And I absolutely love the photo of you flying….beautiful!! Can’t wait to follow your adventures ?
Thank you! Photo credit to a great friend for the flying photo. It was taken in front of the John Lennon Imagine wall in Prague, one of my favorite places in the world. Thanks for the support ?
Love your story! What an exciting life!
Thanks Meagan! You’ve got some pretty awesome stories, as well. I love your site and am happy to work with you in our group!
Wow! What an awesome way to tell us about yourself!!!
Great photos! Very artistic and visual which is good for a visual person like me.
Thanks! I tried to choose the photos that represented my experiences the most. Glad you enjoyed them!
Where was the picture of you flying in front of a wall taken? That wall looks so groovy ?
No group needed! Just head to the back of any grocery store after they close. The bins that they put the food in are different from general waste bins.
It’s the John Lennon wall in Prague!
Why have you and Jamie seperated tracks? ?
It only lasted two months ? I went to South Korea and he was going to do another journey. He ended up coming to Korea after I got there, though. We are still together, moving to Australia in a few days.
It’s not everyday I see a vegan traveller like me =)
When will be you in India. If visiting Maharashtra kindly let me know.
