How To be a Badass Vegetarian Back-Packer, go Wherever You Want and

not Starve to Death.

It is a constant enigma to me that there are not more vegetarian travel guides. Let’s be honest, if you’re reading this then there’s a good chance that you are a vegetarian and that you like to travel. In which case, you’re already aware that it is significantly more difficult in some places than others and the average travel guide for those places will offer nothing more insightful than ‘vegetarians will struggle here'. Now there are some backpacker things you will never be able to do unfortunately; sit in a restaurant in China and point randomly at something on a menu even though you have no idea what it is, for example, but that’s not to say you shouldn’t go at all.


There are certain issues that pop up constantly and they’re much easier to handle if you’ve thought of them in advance. Here’s how to be a badass vegetarian backpacker, go wherever you want and not starve to death. Enjoy!
