Beginners Guide to Surviving Veganism Abroad

For West Midlands Vegan Festival we were asked to do a talk on vegan travel. We decided to put together a little presentation on "Beginners Guide to Vegan Travel" We had a small audience, but it was exactly what we were hoping for!

We call this our Beginners Guide to Vegan Travel. We’ve talked to people that are hesitant to travel because of the hassle in finding food in a strange new place as a vegan. In a lot of comments on our blog people are surprised at the places vegan food can be found. Hopefully by the end of this post you will have enough information to get you started and survive as a vegan abroad.


That Time we went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Our friends were telling us about how they had booked a trip to Mexico. They were going to Puerto Vallarta. We said we could look into going as well and have a holiday together. The resort turned out to be a decent price still so we booked it and we were off to Mexico.

We had different flights than our friends but we met in Mexico and then got a cab together to our hotel. Before we knew it we were relaxing on the beach.


Vegan Guide to Madrid, Spain

Madrid is the capital of Spain and also the country's most populated city. Spain is not often associated with veganism since a lot of Spanish food is meaty and obviously the whole history of bullfights comes to mind for many people. Despite what you may expect, Madrid has a lot of vegan food. Don't miss out, you can get the Spanish dish Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish Omelette) veganized!

Why You Should Go: It is fun to explore the neighbourhoods of Madrid and experience the local culture. Madrid is well known for it's impressive museums and monuments. The Reina Sofia museum, the Prado museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum have some of the worlds most important works of art. The buses and metro are excellent and affordable making it easy to get around. The city is full of history and must see historic sights. There is lots to learn about Spanish history from the Spanish Empire to the dictatorship of Franco. Madrid is also an affordable city to visit as food cost, accommodation and attractions can be pretty inexpensive.


Best Vegan Food of 2016

*Warning, do not view this blog post on an empty stomach!* Now that you have all been warned, prepare yourself for some amazing looking food that we found in our travels in 2016.


In London, after going to the London Vegan Youtube Meetup to meet all the YouTube stars, we went to My Village Cafe for some Mediterranean food. We had falafel and dolmades.


Veganuary: The Month to go Vegan.

If you missed last month's update, find it here:  "Tis the Season to be Vegan"

We jumped into the new year with both feet. We also made a post of our "Best Memories of 2016"

We are pretty emotional about our YMS visa coming to an end, but we are trying to stay positive. As much as we want to go back to Canada and see our family that we haven't seen in nearly two years, we just aren't ready to leave England yet. 

We spent the month wallowing in our sorrows, and eating delicious food in Birmingham. On a positive note it is Veganuary so lots of restaurants have deals of their vegan options. 50% off here, free cupcake there, 2 for 1 offers and much more.
