Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Plan Your Camping Trip

By Hasse Larsen

There is one thing that most campers and hikers underestimate, and that is the planning process of the trip. For the most experienced campers, the planning is probably the most important part of the whole trip. The most important part of planning is to pack all the things you need for the trip.

Some things just cannot be left at home if you are going camping. I will try to give you a few heads ups on what you need to remember in this article. Of course, most of the things is not vital in the sense that you will not survive without them, but in some situations they might be just that.

When I pack there is one thing I always make sure of first. That thing is the cooking equipment. There are a few alternatives to choose from that can range from only a box of matches to a big grill. Whatever you choose to bring, it is important that you don't forget it.

You can of course sleep outside under the sky, but for most people a tent is a very important part of camping. They usually don't take up much space in your backpack, and in most cases they are very easy to set up. A tent with good ventilation and enough space to move around a bit in is important.

A lot can be said about bringing a sleeping bag to camping trips. A lot of people feel that it is not required, especially in the summer. For me personally, I think that a sleeping bag is very important. I sleep a lot better when i can wrap myself in something. If I also bring a mattress, I will definitely have trip that will be successful.

A thing that a lot of people don't think that much about bringing is a map. However, it is extremely important. If you have one, a GPS is also great.

All the things we have covered here are very important. There is still one thing that is probably more important than all of them. That thing is food. For most people, bringing food when camping is very important, as they are not able to catch any food them selves. Bring food, a camping chair and a camping table and you can enjoy your meals like you do at home.
