So you’ve put in your time at the workplace and the boss man (or woman) is going to let you take some of that well earned vacation you have been saving. You pack your bags, book a flight, buy some sunscreen and you’re outta there. But…what are you going to do about your veg day once you arrive at your destination? I’ve compiled a list of links that will help you find many of the resources you may need during your travels. I will add these to the wannaveg.com/resources page.
Vegetarian Phrases- These are some common phrases in over 60 languages to help you communicate that you’re a vegetarian.
Restaurant and Health Food- Our friends at Happycow.net have an excellent resource for vegetarians on the move. The restaurant locater also allows people to post reviews and recommendations. I have personally used this site for my travels in the U.S. and Western/Central Europe. It is an indispensable tool.
Airline Food- This site has tons of information on vegetarian food in-flight. It also has detailed information on each airline’s policies and guidelines. As a personal tip, it’s usually best to bring your own, especially for short trips.
Hotel Chains- A list of hotel chains that "get it."
Veg Guide- This is a guide to help you plan your travels. For example, be flexible…if you’re a strict vegan, Mongolia will be more difficult for you than London.
Veg Database- This site covers accommodations, shopping, people and everything in between.
Carbon Offsets- That flight you just took across the U.S. dumped 1,900lbs of CO2 and used 100 gallons of fuel. That’s for your seat alone! You can buy alternative energy credits to offset your travels.
Do you have any more? Let us know about them and I will add them to the list.
Author Information - During his spare time Eric writes for and maintains wannaveg.com. For his day job he works for an electronics company in San Diego, CA. Eric has been a vegetarian for about 10 years and believes that going 'green' and reducing meat consumption go hand-in-hand.
