“Veggie Vagabonds, ey?”
We’re Josh and Sarah, the two friendly faces behind this slice of the internet. On this page you’ll find a little bit more about us two crazy vegans, plus a few extra things about Veggie Vagabonds.
It all started in the Steel City (Sheffield, UK) where I (J) was a bartender and Sarah was a disco dancer. One fateful night we caught eyes across the bar and within the space of a week became joined at the hip. Bound by matching morals and an unquenchable appetite for adventure a trip was planned and we called ourselves Veggie Vagabonds. Still, this was many years before the start of the blog…
We’ve always been inspired by the world we live in
It’s our biggest motivation and the driving force behind most of our actions, something which NEVER ceases to amaze us. With so much to explore we opted against a static life filled with material possessions and decided on a journey of vagabonding and adventures.
Whether it’s climbing mountain peaks with pilgrims in Sri Lanka, completing the UK Three Peaks Challenge by Bike to raise environmental awareness, surviving life as a vegan in Vietnam or rock climbing in the forests of France, we strive to keep life filled with as many exciting experiences as possible.
In 2017 we committed to stop flying and that’s when the adventures really started. We embarked on a plant-powered cycling expedition heading towards India on a very wiggly and indirect route – who knows where we’ll end up!
We’ve always had a message we wanted to spread and realised that creating a community and resource online was the perfect way. A platform to write about our true passions in life and, hopefully, inspire positive change around the world. This is where Veggie Vagabonds, the blog, was born.
Yo I’m Josh, I’m cursed with a restless soul but blessed with a bottomless appetite. I’ve never eaten meat, I feel most at home in the outdoors and I like to climb up things. Besides the obvious, I’m real interested in world religions, I crave spicy food and I like to cook with music blasting.
At Veggie Vagabonds I’m the dude behind the photos (most of them), run the techy side of things and our communications. Sorry if I’m slow replying…
Interesting fact: half my family are Iranian and the other half are South African!
Hi I’m Sarah, I was born eager to explore which means I always say yes to new things. I have a love for nature, a curiosity to learn about new cultures and especially adore being by the sea.
One of my biggest passions in life is food: eating it, cooking it or learning about its roots, if it’s food-based I dig it.
I’m our expedition manager, the resident social media butterfly and deal with most of our vegan realm.
Interesting fact: I’m a trained mental health recovery worker.
