Learn some local phrases you’ll need to express yourself about your diet. For example you should know how to say phrases like; I am a vegan, I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat eggs and more others.
- Get an apartment
Getting an apartment that has a kitchen using airbnb, will not only save your money, but you will be able to enjoy your home cooked vegan food. Make sure you know some recipes to prepare your own food. The apartment also have a fridge where you can keep both your cooked food and fresh veggies to use later. Stock your kitchen with the vegan food and especially on Saturdays to avoid running out of them on Sundays only to find most of the stores are closed.
- Carry some food with you
Carry some nut bar and other snacks that are suitable for your diet. You may be asking ‘Are Bagels Vegan?’ Do your research to find out. While on your vacation, it’s advisable you have a lunch box and carry some food whenever you’re going out. This is to avoid being stranded in case you lack any vegan local restaurant out there.
