honest adventures of em

Queer. NYC. Plant-Based. Travels.


Emma Bengson


To travel the world and live out of a suitcase.

While cultivating passion and vitalizing the flowers in the vase.


Reside in a warm climate and have a successful marriage.

So that I never feel frosty.


And a cupboard stocked with all the vegan treats,

For when I’m dying to eat.


A sleep routine consisting of at least eight hours every night,

And a body and soul supplied with might.


I want a life that warms me up,

Like I just ate a gallon of tomato soup,

While wondering off the corners of the stoop.


Cozy and content.

Yet, alive and adventuring.

Oh my, has life been busy! (And today I saw my first snow in Ireland!!) Ever since I moved to the city, I really feel like Ireland, especially Dublin, has become my home. Back in Maynooth I lived in an on-campus apartment, which was alright, but not very comfortable or cozy. Since I moved to …
