I’m not sure who’s actually going to want to read this really long post….but I finally typed up all the notes I took from our bike trip last summer and tried to document each day with photos. I like having the record of how far we went each day. And it’s fun to look back […]
Austin, Texas (my hometown) will soon be hosting its first vegetarian festival, the Texas VegFest.

The complete interview can be found here.
