Most days you’ll find us bumming around in beach shorts, maxi dresses, wild unruly hair, loose cotton trousers, and bohemian accessories. But every once in a while we like to scrub up for a black-tie dinner 🙂 Vid and I wore these outfits to Galaxy, a gorgeous restaurant on the 16th floor on MSC Preziosa (have you seen all our photos of the ship?). The restaurant offers a panoramic view of the ship and the Mediterranean Sea, so we spent the evening devouring impeccable Italian food and drinking in the view. As the sun set, we could see thousands of stars twinkling in the sky from the glass walls of the restaurant.
Once we tore ourselves away from the restaurant, we hit the bar and spent the night waltzing to some old-school tunes. There might have been some Sinatra involved – aah who else loves him?

Now we post a lot of photos of food, cocktails, and wine – we love ourselves a good meal and you know it. No wonder so many of you ask us how we stay healthy while travelling. We addressed this question in passing in an earlier article. Long story short – we love sampling street food and fine dining is our weakness. But that often translates into a lot of unnecessary calories and we travel way too frequently to gloss over this. Neither of us is one of those metabolic superheroes who can eat anything they want (if you are one, you lucky bum!!), so we try and exercise while we’re travelling. I have to admit Vid is better at this than I am. He hit the gym on our cruise ship every second day while I was errr lazing by the pool.
In addition to this we try and eat healthy. Both of us are obsessed with raw foods, salads, and green smoothies. We binge on incriminating amounts of fruits and vegetables wherever in the world we are. If you follow us on Bruised Passports on Instagram, you would know just how much we love our fruit and green smoothies. Check out this shot of our daily green smoothie from our Instagram feed :-
In case you can’t tell we’re obsessed, there’s more 😉
We converted so many of our friends into green-smoothie lovers that we’ve lost count. If we’re away for a weekend break, we just throw caution to the winds. But if we’re away for a longer period of time, like our recent month-long trip to Asia, we take a cheeky mini blender for smoothies on the go. Nutribullet is our blender of choice, both at home and while travelling. It doesn’t really need an introduction because it’s famed in the raw food world for breaking down fruits and vegetables to their most nutritive state. Nutribullet smoothies are said to balance blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and blood pressure. But we love it because it makes the creamiest and yummiest smoothies.
We use it in our kitchen everyday and if I could take one thing with me on holiday, this would be it (Vid would obviously choose his camera 😉 )Both of us use our Nutribullet for all sorts of smoothies but my favourite thing to do is to blitz over-ripe frozen fruit with some milk for the most scrumptious and healthiest “ice-cream” free of all nasties. Here’s a plate of my banana and raspberry “ice cream” topped with fresh raspberries and edible flowers from the farmers’ market – nom!
So that’s how we stay healthy, wealthy, and wise – just kidding, we’re completely bankrupt but smiles count don’t they? 🙂
Are you a fan of the raw food movement as well? How do you stay healthy while travelling?
