Eating Vegan In Tokyo: You Can Do It!

In what seemed like a fool hardy plan I booked a last minute trip to Tokyo with no prior experience of Japan and speaking no Japanese. As a long term strict vegan the prospect of spending two weeks in a country renown for their fish and inflexibility, rather than their vegan friendly cuisine, was a little daunting. I’m not the most adventurous of travellers, but I managed to eat, eat…

How To ‘Get The Ball Rolling’ And Create a Local Vegan Group

As a bit of background info about myself…I’m Laura, I’m 26, and I live in Surrey, UK. I went Vegan on January 1st 2006. I didn’t know of any other Vegans at the time, didn’t have any culinary skills, and didn’t receive a great deal of support from family or friends, but it all came down to the fact that I knew that eating animals and by-products was wrong.

It turns out that it actually doesn’t matter what they tell you. When you get there, things will be different. Why? Because even though there might be a lot of vegan restaurants in…

Low Budget Vegan In Mongolia

Traveling as a vegan in Mongolia is not recommended for weak stomachs. I thought mine could handle it, but it didn’t. Although I was always very well prepared, I had a lot of difficulty coping with the local eating habits. I didn’t want my diet to get in the way of experiencing the local culture, so I stubbornly took on the nomad way of living on the countryside. Marvelous idea, Marie. Bravo.…

Low Budget Vegan In Russia

Before leaving home, I got warned by several people that Russia is not the most vegan-friendly country to travel in. It’s funny how people who are not even vegan and have probably never been to Russia become experts on unknown territory. I must admit that I was happily surprised about the veggie situation in this gigantic country. I have committed to not paying for any sleep, so CouchSurfing is just…

Holidays With The Family And The Lone Vegan

Most people experience some amount of anxiety when coming home for the holidays, whether it’s because you’re bringing home a significant other to meet the folks for the first time or you may not be on the best terms with a family member. Most people typically don’t think “dietary issues” would make a family gathering stressful, but for vegans this is often times the case. Having to explain to family…
