Welcome! This blog and podcast is dedicated to traveling as a vegan, with interviews and tips from experienced travelers on how to eat healthy and inexpensively in the US and all over the world. Whether you're a long-time traveler, thinking about a big trip, or just an occasional road-tripper or business traveler, you'll find information and advice. The show should also be helpful to new and aspiring vegans, when it comes to finding food in rural areas, traveling with non-vegans and how to handle awkward situations of all kinds.
Episode 1 explores the challenges and opportunities for eating on the road while traveling solo, by cooking your own food, even without access to a kitchen. I have some experience in this area. Sometimes a little planning is required but it's not hard and depends on how risk-averse you are. Much more to come on this topic in future episodes.
About me: I am a traveling vegan living a semi-nomadic lifestyle where I travel to new places every few months and work seasonal jobs to support myself. I am a long-time committed vegan and keep a very healthy plant-based, even on the road, often on as little as $10 a day. So far I have lived in or visited dozens of US cities, bicycled through Ontario (and several US states), and spent 6 months in Scotland. I travel primarily by bike and public transit, even in places where "you need a car here". Here are a few photos from my recent bike tour of Maine and Vermont; as you can see the quality of food options varies from gas station convenience store to supermarket.
