Vegan Travel Resources

The following is a list of general travel resources for vegans and vegetarians worldwide. I hope you all will find it helpful.

Do you have any tips on how I can make my site better?  Any veggie travel links I’m missing? Advice is warmly welcomed!

Vegan Backpacker: Vegan Travel Guide

Vegan and Vegetarian Language Guides:

Vegan Passport – Passport sized book with phrases for explaining your vegan diet in 56 languages (honestly, while the description of veganism is very thorough and I can certainly see how this would be useful in some situations…It tends to come across as arrogant when translated so literally into certain languages). I’d be interested to see how a person would react if they were handed this book.

Select Wisely – Printed cards explaining what you can’t eat. Great for people with food allergies, but would need to be customized for vegans. I think I’ll make some myself.)

HedWeb – Vegetarian phrases in other languages

IVU – Vegetarian phrases in other languages

*Tip – For sites in other languages, Babel Fish or Google Translate are great tools that allow you to translate a block of text or an entire Web page. (Sometimes the translations return some gibberish, but it’s better than nothing).

    I’m SCREWED! I have to go to Poschiavo, Switzerland for a gig for 2 weeks. While I eat fish (NO shellfish) ON OCCASION, my body does not respond well AT ALL to heavy starch meals and I don’t do dairy, which seems to be the main offerings in that area for folks who consider themselves “vegetarian.”

    Is there ANYONE OUT THERE who can give me some good ideas as how I’m going to survive in the region for 2 weeks. Even ONE meal of heavy starch typically does not fare well; I ABSOLUTELY cannot eat dairy, or even a steady diet of potatoes and wheat products.

    Do they EAT GREEN VEGETABLES over there? And, where can I get them. Even if I have to buy salad fixings at a local market, I’ll do that but I’m destined to be ILL if I attempt to fit in and eat what everyone else is eating.

    I leave for Poschiavo, Switzerland on June 9th. PLEASE ADVISE?

    I deeply appreciate any insight.

  2. Hi Chandra. I’ve never been to Switzerland, but I’ve been to Iceland and I managed just fine. You should be alright.
    Here are some tips I have for vegetarian travel in general: https://circleourearth.com/vegan-travel-tips/

    Did you check out happy cow for restaurants? https://www.happycow.net/europe/switzerland/
    You could also check on vegan around the world network to connect with other vegans from switzerland.
