Vegan Travel

Before visiting a new city or a country,  I always make it a point to see the website, Happy Cow.

Happy Cow is a great website, it lists all the vegetarian and vegan restaurants in a city.

You can find vegetarian and vegan restaurants from Australia to North America and Africa to South America.

Here is another interesting website for people interested in plant-based eating,

 Youtube is another wonderful resource for Vegetarians and Vegans.
