In 2011 Kristin Lajeunesse quit her job and moved into a van in an effort to eat at every single vegan restaurant in the United States. Now, nearly 5 years later she’s still traveling full-time, has taken her project abroad, and is the author of a memoir based on her travels: Will Travel for Vegan Food. During 2016 & 2017, Kristin traveled to dozens of countries over 6-months helping VeganTravel promote veganism and compassion.
In November 2016 I landed in Southeast Asia, for the first time in my life. Indonesia more specifically. Bali to be exact. Stepping into the dated, stuffy airport terminal felt surreal. I still remember the longing I’d felt when brushing […]
My time in Liverpool was short – maybe 24 hours max. I’d arrived during THIS road trip up from London, with my friend Alex. We went specifically to participate in the Rise & Shine Sober Rave Party—part of a movement […]
Originally, I was planning to spend a full week in London, but the moment I arrived (via the direct train from Brighton) I met local, high-on-life, vegan enthusiast, Alex Walker. Alex and I had been put in touch via a […]
At first I was frustrated, and then overwhelmed, and then I fell in love. What is this? Some kind of cray version of Eat, Pray, Love?! Hehe! Nawwww, it’s just lil’ ol’ me about to jump into a short story […]
^Malahide Castle & Gardens Ah, Dublin! I had no expectations upon arriving in Ireland for the first time in my life and was certainly jazzed when learning just how vegan-friendly the city of Dublin is. One of the first things […]
I never really thought I’d visit Dubai. I’ve heard about it intermittently by way of travel and/or discovery shows over the years, but wasn’t particularly drawn to it as a destination. As I was working with Green Earth Travel to […]
(^ My ‘joy’ face having arrived at my destination, after my first super long haul flight) Last weekend I embarked on my first long haul flight. We’re talkin’ a 16 hour non-stop flight from Dubai to Auckland. Upon planning […]
Every now and then you may step into a moment, a room, a city, that feels utterly brilliant. It could be high vibing energy, buzzing locals, friendly communities, amazing restaurants; maybe even a little bit of all these things. That’s […]
Similar to my quick trip to Poznań, Poland, I hopped down to Prague, Czech Republic for a few days since it was just a short bus ride (about 4 hours) from Berlin (where I was based for about a month). […]
Deciding where to go out to eat in Berlin can almost be daunting as there are so many options spread out over the entire city (which is quite big, I must say). Therefore, I decided to focus on just one […]
I had the pleasure of taking a VERY short trip to Poznań, Poland recently and was surprised by the number of fully-vegan and vegan-friendly eateries! The trip was somewhat last minute but the great thing about being in Berlin is […]
There are few places I’ve felt as comfortable and ‘at-home’ in as quickly as I did when I landed in Athens, Greece. From a relatively small and easy to navigate airport and public transit system, to the incredible kindness of […]
The line moved faster than I expected. I watched the three or so people ahead of me breeze through the Sabiha Gökçen International (SAW) Airport’s “other nationalities” passport checkpoint—in Istanbul, Turkey—without so much a glance, let alone any questions, from […]
