Vegan Vacations: July 20th is World Vegan Travel Day, Says The Vegan Word

Leadership is an overused word, and is often misused. We like this definition.

The number of vegans in the US has doubled since 2009. At a time of year when many are planning their summer or fall vacations, World Vegan Travel Day encourages would-be holidaymakers to align trip plans with their values.

At a time of year when many are planning their summer or fall vacations, World Vegan Travel Day encourages would-be holidaymakers to align trip plans with their values. It’s easier than ever to travel as a vegan. In France, for example, the number of vegetarian and vegan restaurants increased by 37% in the six-month period between October 2015 and April 2016 alone. “I started World Vegan Travel Day to celebrate the joy and increasing ease of vegan travel,” Caitlin Galer-Unti, founder of The Vegan Word, a vegan guidebook publisher (https://theveganword.com), states.

The number of vegans in the UK has spiked by 360% in 10 years, while the number of vegans in the US has doubled since 2009. “Unfortunately, there’s still a misconception that it’s difficult or even impossible to be vegan while traveling. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Traveling as a vegan means you can have experiences and connect with locals in ways you wouldn’t have otherwise” says vegan travel expert Galer-Unti.

In The Essential Vegan Travel Guide: 2017 Edition (http://amzn.to/2t8TSvI), Galer-Unti draws on her experience traveling worldwide as a vegan in 25 countries and as a vegetarian in 5 countries. She shares some tips on planning vegan-friendly trips at: https://theveganword.com/vegetarian-and-vegan-travel-doesnt-have-to-be-hard-and-heres-how-it-can-be-easy/.

Vegans (and non-vegans) alike are encouraged to celebrate World Vegan Travel Day by booking their next vegan-friendly adventure.
