V in Travelling is for Vegan: Meet the Inspiring Couple Behind The Veganary

December 01, 2019

Travelling the world has never been easier. Cheaper flights, wallet friendly accommodations and more countries that opened up their borders for curious wanderlusts. Yet, for some who want to see the world there's still one stumbling block that leaves them hesitant about seeing the world – their diet. If you ever fretted about travelling the world as a plant based eater, then rejoice dear plant/animal/planet loving friend because we have a perfect solution for you. If your passport and _____ (insert your fave vegan snack, dish or a restaurant) had a baby, it would be The Veganary, your next vegan BFF. The Veganary’s mission is to empower both vegans and aspiring vegans to live their travel dreams to the fullest while meeting like-minded people along the way. We were curious about how this amazing project started and we desperately wanted to meet the humans behind it. So we invited them for a brunch at our fave vegan café (shout out to Olive + Ruby) and it instantly felt like meeting old friends. 

Get to know Natan and Shani and learn more about The Veganary, below!

One Saturday evening I found myself aimlessly scrolling through Etsy when Spotify put on Ari's 2019 hit single "7 Rings.' 

I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah) – I hummed. 

This prompted me to type Ariana Grande into Etsy search bar and my laptop screen got flooded by countless images of the pop queen. One of them stood out right away and lead me into the Gotchilnk art shop. The shop is the brainchild of Ariel Gotchi, a 24 year old artist hailing from sunny LA who makes digital art of iconic characters for stickers and prints. I reached out to Ariel and by Sunday evening we were nailing down the details of our Smartbite Snacks x GotchiInk collaboration.

MEET THE UBER TALENTED ARTIST BEHIND SMARTBITE SNACKS' FIRST STATIONERY PIECES

I first met Kelly Graham at a Vancouver event for female entrepreneurs. There she was sitting behind a table displaying her eye-catching card creations with a huge smile on her face and a childlike excitement in her eyes. I knew instantly I needed to work with her on some creative project for Smartbite Snacks. 

Upon checking Kelly’s Instagram (which I highly suggest you follow cause it is a beacon of positivity, creativity and a dream of every stationery aficionado) and asking for her business card (which I kept until this day as it is a little work of art), the deal was sealed. Couple months later I found myself walking (okay, running) to Prado café on Commercial Drive to sit down with Kelly to discuss the upcoming project we were working on as well as rack her brain on what she does daily to stay creative. This gal is nothing short of inspirational and I am so happy we connected that evening.
