The bright Iydea here is to serve up healthy, affordable vegetarian food in a flash. Their meals might be plated quickly, but this is by no means a typical fast food experience. In a cafeteria-style setup, customers begin by choosing a dish from the display, then top it off with their choice of vegetables, salads, toppings, and sauces. The ever-changing menu offers a range of both classic dishes and seasonal experiments, so you’ll never run out of options. Iydea is perfect for the health-conscious individual rushing to make the most of their lunch break, but also welcomes any guests looking to stay for a more relaxed meal.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
