Maintaining a vegan lifestyle on vacation may seem like a big challenge, but with these tips we’re going to give you will realize that it can be very simple and practical.
- 1. Research well
First of all, it’s important that you do a good search of the place before you get there. You can do this through Google or Happy Cow website, which provides a list of vegan and vegetarians restaurants by regions.
2. Bring vegan food
However, there are still countries that aren’t accustomed with the reality of veganism and it’s best to take some provisions in your bag!
3. Search for help on social networks
Searching on social media for vegan groups in the region you’re visiting is a good idea. You’ll probably find several groups and usually they’re very helpful and a great help. You might even make friends ?
4. Know vegan ingredients
Reading labels is a daily practice of a vegan. And while in a foreign country, it’s even more important. The foreign language might be a problem. Obviously, the ideal would be to speak that language. But if you don’t, there’s no need to panic! The Vegan Passport is a good option for you, because it is a little book that has the translation of many ingredients for many languages. And if you don’t want to buy the book, do a quick search on the internet that will definitely help.
5. Communicate with the locals
In addition to these tips, I encourage you to communicate with the locals, as they are already quite familiar with tourists, are friendly and will simplify your life.
Your lifestyle shouldn’t stop you from going on vacation. Have fun this summer, whether you’re vegan or not. The most important thing is to practice sustainable tourism!
