Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you?
Hey friends! My name is Paige, i’m a twenty-something from Australia. I was originally studying Law at university in Australia, but after 2 years at university I decided the rigid student life wasn’t for me. So I packed my bags, sold my possesions, bought a one-way ticket to Europe and haven’t looked back since.
Why did you start Wonderstruck Fawns?
There is a common misconception in society that being a vegan is difficult and restricting, and that furthermore, travelling as a vegan is near impossible. When I would speak to friends about my looming travel ventures, I was often met with responses like ‘yeah but what are you going to eat when you go overseas?’. I have also heard countless stories about people who used to be vegan but went back to vegetarianism when they went overseas (and usually remained this way upon their return home). I saw a need for a forum where people could come and find advice about how to remain an ethical vegan when travelling. So, I created Wonderstruck Fawns as a way to inspire readers to remain vegan throughout their travels, in turn helping to change the negative stigma regarding the vegan lifestyle.
How long have you been vegan and why?
I went vegetarian in August 2009, and after years of claiming veganism was ‘just too hard’ i finally grew up, hardened up and made the change to veganism in May 2013. It honestly was one of the best decision of my life and I have never considered changing back since. I am vegan for the animals, for myself and for the planet. I truly believe in the power of veganism and it’s ability to positively transform your life, and i’m excited to share the power of veganism with you.

What camera do you use?
I use a Canon 600D and my iPhone 5.
What motivates you to keep blogging?
My blog or life work would mean nothing to me if it wasn’t for the message I carry. It makes me so happy to be able to help our world and help the animals by spreading the word about veganism, in turn helping readers realise why they should be living this way too. I truly believe in the power of veganism, and I believe in it’s power as a catalyst for change. As long as animals are still in pain and are still suffering, I won’t stop doing my part to spread the word about how it is possible to live and travel ethically. Furthermore, I love that I am able to inspire others to understand our world and understand themselves through the power of travel.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
