How long have you been vegan? How many places and where have you traveled since you’ve been vegan?

I’ve been vegan about 23 years now! So most all of my world travels have taken place while I’ve been vegan, aside from all my trips as a kid, which were mostly to the Caribbean, eating mangoes and coconuts. I’m also currently at 23 countries so still have a lot more to go, and a lot more food to eat!

What’s your favorite place or places you’ve traveled as a vegan?

This would be a toss up between Portland, Oregon and Brighton, England and Reykjavik, Iceland. I can easily find great vegan food pretty much anywhere, but these cities have any type of food you could possibly imagine. From pizzas to burgers to frito pies to ice cream!

What was the best vegan meal you’ve had while traveling? How did you find the restaurant?

Now that’s a hard one! But the one that sticks out in my mind as definitely one of the best meals ever was at The Happy Pear in Greystones, Ireland. The most delicious and natural foods made by some of the most awesome chefs. I had the best vegan burger there. I found it using the Happy Cow app but was also referred there by locals, which is always a good sign!

What was the hardest place to be a vegan? How did you find food? What did you eat?

I don’t think anywhere is particularly hard as long as you have access to fruits, veggies and beans. But thinking of a place where I got a little tired of eating the same 5 ingredients, I’d say Mexico. I love the food, but if I’m there for weeks at a time, I eventually want more than tacos! Or I at least crave some yummy vegan cheese or sour cream to put on them!

Where are you planning on going next and what vegan places will you be checking out?

I’m currently traveling in Turkey and checking out all the vegan food. I’m really shocked at how much there is available, from delicious mezze plates to fresh produce everywhere. I feel a foodie post in the works!
