WHAT TO KNOW AS A
The world is big and as long as we are on it, we should explore it.
These are words that world traveler and vegan, Christina Galioto, lives
by. From a young age, Christina has travelled all over the world and
she still never misses an opportunity to travel and explore new lands
However, there is one thing that Christina has noticed in her travels,
and that is the limited availability of truly vegan options in certain
parts of the world.
Christina doesn’t believe in limiting her travelling experiences
because she chooses to live a healthy and vegan lifestyle, and neither
Trying to figure out your food situation is one
thing that’s relatively easy to manage. But to
figure out your toiletries and beauty products
is another thing. Many countries don’t realize
that being vegan goes beyond what you eat.
It includes the products that you use and the
clothing that you wear as well.
You’ll find that many countries still allow
companies to test their products on animals.
This is a huge no-no as a vegan and we need
to stay away from those products.
To avoid these sticky situations, it’s advised
that you bring as much of your own toiletries
and cosmetics that you can.
PACK YOUR TOILETRIES
As you travel more, you’ll soon
realize that even though we are
in 2017, veganism is not as
widely understood as one would
hope. Do your research and find
which countries are
knowledgeable about veganism
and those that still need some
catching up to do. This will help
you plan your trip accordingly.
Additionally, sometimes, waiters,
staffers, and other merchants
may not know exactly what
you’re looking for. The word
“vegan” does not directly
translate into every language, so
you should know different ways
to communicate your needs.
CHOOSE YOUR LOCATION WISELY
No one likes feeling hangry, and
travelling around the world as a
vegan, that often happens. The
best way to combat that is to
pack your own snacks.
Many restaurants think vegan
options are simple lettuce and
tomato salads. One cannot
simply live on these two foods
alone. You’ll find that as food
options become limited, your
already packed snacks will be a
ALWAYS PACK SNACKS
A big travel hack for travelers
with special diets (vegan,
allergies, etc.) are the local
farmer’s markets. Open air-
fruit and vegetable markets are
a great source to get fresh
fruits and vegetables for
cooking. You know exactly what
you’re buying and how your food
is prepared since you are
preparing it on your own.
Exploring the farmer’s markets
is also a great way to explore
your area even further and see
a side of the town that you
otherwise would have probably
