[PART 3/3] ECO-FRIENDLY: This attitude has not changed, we just want to remind you that all the rubbish circulating on our Earth is bad, yes. And it has been done by us, humans. . However, we live in this epoque and some waste just can’t be avoided. Being 100% no-waste & plastic-free is barely possible. . So, just do what you can! If our only source of food comes wrapped in plastic, shall we not buy it and choose something else which can’t satisfy us and make us feel good? No! it’s a matter of priorities. If there is no choice, we use that damn plastic! . Later we may try to recycle it or use it for something else, for sure. . You still have a huge variety of options to reduce your environmental footprint! Some examples from our daily life: . - use glass straws instead of plastic ones; - use your bicycle or public transport for at least some of your trips; - bring your #reusable bags while shopping, do not accept plastic bags (if not strictly necessary); - same goes for all kind of containers: make vendors fill your reusable boxes or cups with their take & away food or drinks. - Prefer buying stainless steel, glass or other durable materials for your house, instead of plastic ones. - Try to find alternative uses to the plastic you already have or had to buy. - And many many others! . That’s it. Just be conscious about your actions, and aim for the equilibrium between your wellbeing, the one of the others and the one of our Mother Earth. . THE END? So, we are coming back to Milan to invest on ourselves and improve our business. We will not stay there forever, as Milan is not our ideal place where to live. We will let you know when we will move again! . Does our website and this profile still have a meaning to exist? We do not know. For sure our goal is still make you think for yourself, do not take everything for granted. . Find your own #Truth. . We took a lot of efforts, studies and experiences to understand where to search: inside.
[PART 2/3] PLANT-BASED LIFESTYLE: Probably the trickiest part. . We have been eating a standard western diet for our whole life, until some years ago, when we started reading about how harmful it was. So we went #vegan, and for some periods even #rawvegan – #fruitarian. For sure, fruits taste great, but our experience made us re-think about all this. Nowadays, the madness of a contemporary diet is all about over-consumption, processed foods, use of chemicals, irradiation, refined food and simply: unnatural. And this we totally understand and approve. . Studying nutrition and veganism in particular, we thought that the main problem were the animal products and eliminating them would heal you from everything and make you feel amazing. And here goes the last piece of the puzzle: the real issue is not the animals’ products per se, but the way humans are dealing with them. . Meat, eggs, fish and dairy are full of antibiotics, chemicals, hormones and animals are fed with not their specie-specific food, instead with substances which enhance their growth. What is natural here? Nothing. . It is true that going vegan makes you feel better, but only because you get rid of processed animal foods and other junk food! We want to live a great life, not dealing with diseases which slow us down, being sick or feeling tired and unable to accomplish activities during the day. We want to live fully! . Certainly, the fruits still taste great and attract us, but we found out those can’t be the only source to rely on. At least for us, right now. . Mainly because we have never felt truly satisfied and many times we felt bloated because of the high quantity one needs to eat. Eventually, this lifestyle has other cons which may show up in long-term. But really, this is our experience, we still believe that everyone is different and needs different food in different period of his/her life. That’s fine. . We are in the process of totally changing our diet and most importantly: our thoughts about food and its importance in life.
[PART 1/3] Our profile got HACKED?! 🤔 . Nah, just kidding. We have some HUGE news for you! . Everything got twisted and now we totally changed our attitude and what we think it's best for us. The topics include traveling, staying in South East Asia and... being vegan! . It's a long story, so we split it among a few posts, covering our 3 main pillars. . #MINIMALISM: Yes, we still embrace a lifestyle which gets rid of useless stuff that clutters our house and mind. Nevertheless, we realized that some things are NEEDED in life in order to be fully satisfied with our daily routine and be ourselves as much as possible. Hence, we aim to be #RICH. But this word is so misunderstood and often has negative meanings behind it, so we thought to briefly explain what RICH means to us. To do so, we will use a quote of the book “You are a badass at making money” written by Jen Sincero. RICH: “Able to afford all the things and experiences required to fully experience your most authentic life.” So we are pursuing our passions to make them work in this world!
🚈 We truly enjoy Thai local trains! . 💰 It is true that the cost of life in South East Asia is far lower compared to EU, USA or Australia. . 🛤️ Look at these tickets: 5 hours (≈ 305 km) of train, for a ridiculous price of total 74 baht (
‼️ Don't do this at home ‼️ . 🏝️ Coconuts in South East Asia are one of the symbols of tropics. It is truly like this, they are beautiful, tasty and useful. . ⬆️ Locals are able to climb even the tallest trees without any kind of protection nor ropes. They just go on top and make the coconuts fall! . ☠️ They can be fatal while falling! Especially when ripe coconuts fall by themselves, you don't know when it is going to happen. . 🌴 So do not stay under a coconut tree, otherwise you can earn a ticket to the other dimension quite easily 😅 . . ❇️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️❇️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️❇️ #coconuttree #coconut #coconuts #coconutlover #coconutlove #palmtree #palmtreeseverywhere #tropicalisland #tropicallife #tropicalvibes #tropicalwayoflife #junglevibes #treelovers #tropics #kohphangan #amazingthailand #beautifulthailand #southeastasia #becareful #bettersafethansorry #watchout #beware #unsafe #warning #deadly #safetyfirst #sunnysunday #naturelovers #naturebeauty #naturepower
👀 Aha! We spotted you! . 🍈 These are our rivals! They eat the fruits on the tree before they become ripe to collect. . 🌈 Okay, just kidding. In this world of fruit abundance, every creature can enjoy its specific food without worrying about competition. . 🐒 We found these cute black monkeys while coming back from the morning market some days ago, in Penang. . 😍 They are so adorable that it is enough looking in their eyes for some seconds to completely fall in love! . 🌴 And just a few metres later, we found another one eating a papaya straight from the tree! . 👍 Good choice my friend, good choice. . . ◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◻️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️ #monkeys #monkeysofinstagram #duskyleafmonkey #trachypithecusobscurus #animalfacts #wildlifelovers #wildlifephotographer #wildlifeonearth #wildnature #fruithunter #fruittree #mangotree #mangoes #fruitlove #frugivore #fruitpicking #fruitlover #fruitpassion #eatyourfruits #cuteanimal #junglelife #junglevibes #jungleanimals #visitmalaysia #penangisland #tropicallife #tropicalvibes #tropics #naturebeauty #natureisbeautiful
🤔 People are used to believe that our objective reality is the same for everyone. . ☝️ Science, tests, experiments and demonstrations show us that this world functions with precise patterns... And that there is always one single best way to deal with all kind of problems. . 😮 We were thinking like this, too. Until we realized that it is totally different. . ☀️ Everyone has his own TRUTH, because our inner beliefs are very powerful! And this truth also changes over time! . 🥦 One amazing example is the diet a person follows. . 🍎 Someone can be extremely happy and healthy being vegan, someone else might not feel that this resonates with his way of living. There is someone who eat only fruits and as a result have amazing energy, while someone else may struggle on it. . 💕 In the end, the best option is following your heart, your intuition and FEEL deeply what makes YOU feel good. Because a certain method can be efficient for some of us, but deleterious to others. . . 🔴🔵⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫🔵🔴 #liveyourtruth #believeinyourself #findyourtruth #findyourbalance #listentoyoursoul #listentoyourbody #mindbodyconnection #holistichealth #holisticliving #takecareofyourtemple #takecareofyourself #bekindtoyourself #nooneisperfect #loveyourjourney #truthoflife #truewords #dailythoughts #yourtruth #selftrust #trustyourself #trustyourintuition #selfdiscovery #innerwisdom #livetothefullest #somethingtothinkabout #thinkaboutit #youshouldknow #liveconsciously #openyourmind #digdeeper
👴 What happens when you meet a 71 years-old retired journalist on Couchsurfing? . 📰 Something unique, for sure. Among the thousands of articles that our new friend Kim Jooi has published, there is this one. . 🍈 It is about our favourite fruit, DURIAN, written 47 years ago. Take some minutes to read it, it is full of useful tips and uncommon insights! . 🍵 We spent hours and hours talking about world, society, health and phycology, while enjoying together some durian and Chinese tea. . 😯 It is very rare to meet someone that deep and wise, someone who spent his life making dangerous and tough experiences. . 💖 Certainly, our 3 days in Penang gave us more more we could have ever expected! . . 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔴🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 #penangisland #couchsurfing #adventurelife #durianlovers #durian #durianlover #exoticfruit #tropicalfruit #kingoffruits #visitmalaysia #fruitlove #fruitlover #fruitpassion #southeastasiatrip #eatseasonal #eatlocalgrown #fruitarian #frugivore #gofruityourself #eatmorefruit #eatyourfruits #natureisamazing #rawlife #veganlife #tropics #lifeexperience #meettheworld #alwayslearning #amazingmemories #travelasia
💝 Life is full of unexpected surprises! . 🏃 We planned to stay 3 busy days in Penang. But this has not stopped us to meet new people, and what an experience! . 🤗 It was great to exchange thoughts and ideas with an amazing girl from Slovenia, @sabina_binna. . 🌴 She invited us for a walk in the jungle where we admired wild trees of durians and chempedaks. Our goal was to find some durians which has just fallen on the ground. . 🍈 Initially, we have spotted a chempedak near the river, and after a while we have also found 3 durians among the rocks surrounded by water! . 🤤 With a little effort we have picked them up and sat down under a tree to try! What comes next can't be described by words. . 🎉 Sabina was used to eat durians almost every day. We, not at all! After 3 month in South-East Asia we finally tasted our true first wild durian! . 😇 That moment was total PERFECTION: we were in good company, in the Nature, while eating the king of fruits. . 🌹The best things in life are immensely simple. . . 🔻🔻🔴🔺🔺🔴🔻🔻🔴🔺🔺🔴🔻🔻🔴🔺🔺 #penangisland #durian #durianlovers #durianlover #fruithunter #fruitlove #fruitpicking #fruitlove #fruitlover #exoticfruit #tropicalfruit #kingoffruits #fruitpassion #fruitarian #fruitaddict #frugivore #eatseasonal #eatlocalgrown #naturelovers #natureisamazing #naturetherapy #natureisbeautiful #simpleliving #simplicity #thisislife #thingsthatmatter #liveconsciously #livesimply #livetothefullest #liveyourbestlife
