Welcome to Vegan Mofo 2014…introducing my theme, Hungerlust!

the-vegan-word-mofo-logo-2014-final

Hungerlust. That insatiable craving for both food, and travel. Preferably combined. And vegan, naturally. My Vegan Mofo theme this year is all about feeding it. We’ll be doing a journey around the world (airfare not included – sorry!) from the comfort of our sofas – or desks, wherever you happen to be sitting.

Ever met someone (well-meaning or otherwise) who claimed it’s impossible to be vegan on the road? Maybe you have a colleague who claims they tried so hard to be vegan, but found it impossible when they were in Costa Rica and there was just. no. vegan. food. Except you know that these are just excuses, and nothing but, because you were there last year and you found plenty of vegan delicacies on offer. Let’s eradicate these excuses, and show that it’s easy to find vegan food on the road.

Maybe you’re a new vegan, or you haven’t traveled much, and you’re shaking in your faux leather boots at the thought of trying to find vegan food on the trip you’re planning. Don’t fear, because I’ll be covering some super easy tips on how to keep your sanity and find the best vegan food ever on your travels!

What’s coming up?

Quick and easy tips
The best apps for the traveling vegan, what to pack before your trip, vegan airplane meals and more.

Interviews
I’ll be interviewing some other traveling vegans from around the vegan blogosphere about their trips as vegans, and the various destinations they’ve been to!

Inspirational travel articles and reviews
Covering various destinations I’ve been to in the last year, including Sicily, Vienna and Edinburgh.

Insta-blogging
From Santorini, Greece, I’ll be live (as live as it gets with limited internet) Instagram blogging (both on Instagram and with picture posts here) my vegan Greek experience from the 13th to the 24th.

I’m really looking forward to sharing this year’s Mofo theme with you. Travel is one of my biggest passions, alongside veganism so I’m super excited to combine the two here. I’ve been to 27 countries and counting (when I go to Greece this month it will be my twenty eighth), 23 of those as a vegan and the rest as a vegetarian. So I know from firsthand experience how fun and rewarding traveling as a vegan can be!

      Thanks Zsu! I always enjoy a good bit of armchair travel (therefore I’m really looking forward to the interviews I’m doing with other vegans about their travels this month!).

    Great theme! Really looking forward to this month’s journey!

    Last vacation was to Portland, Oregon. It was great, and I’m pretty sure you can’t *not* find good food there. :)

      Thanks Kelly! And you’re right, Portland is so awesome for vegan food, I want to go back. I miss Voodoo, you can’t find vegan doughnuts like that here in London!

    I’m always surprised by how difficult people make vegan travel out to be. A little bit of homework, patience, and an interest in asking questions makes it fun and usually straightforward! Can’t wait to read about your travels and food.

      Totally! Someone I know recently gave up being vegetarian on holiday because it was “too hard”. No it isn’t, it just requires a little bit of foresight and looking up some stuff beforehand, so I’m hoping to show how easy and fun it is!
