Lonely Planet Goes Vegan - The Vegan Travel Handbook

           




              
It's a sign there are big changes afoot, when a company like Lonely Planet acknowledges that veganism is here.

Although we are not into buying stuff anymore, we do have a passion for books...especially travel books! We have collected many travel guides over the years and we continue to use our French ones even though they are probably over 20 years old now. We bought our first Lonely Planet Publication in 1991... Europe On A Shoestring! We found it to be a great resource, using it frequently to do research when planning trips, as well as taking it with us. 

We love nothing more than sitting with maps and travel books, dreaming and planning our next or future adventures and always try to find whatever information we can about places to eat, so when we heard about a new vegan travel guide - we had to check it out.


The book features various lists like The World's Top 20 Vegan-Friendly Cities...of which we have visited 8. 

The most impressive recent city visits for us vegan wise have been: 

London
We hadn't visited London in 13 years, so when Hugo told us this summer that he had an art installation on Brick Lane - we knew we had to go and we were not disappointed!

Toronto
In 2017 we were incredibly lucky to have been treated to a trip to Ontario in Canada for our dear friend, Richard's birthday party. Toronto and London and surrounding areas were absolutely amazing for vegan food...

And we will always be truly grateful to this special chap and so happy to have him in our lives.

Ghent
A visit to stay with our beautiful friend Lieve.
Unfortunately we forgot to photograph the food, but we will definitely be returning - here is a taster of what's on offer: Conscious choices: an ethical trip to Ghent, Belgium.

Thanks to Lonely Planet for getting in touch with us enabling us to offer our readers this great discount:

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
