It’s an exciting time in Almost Vegan-land. I’ve been writing this blog for one year this month, my 100th post is right around the corner, and…I’M GOING TO EUROPE!
It has been a dream of mine since as far back as age 10, but this trip has come together very fast, all within the last month. In a lot of ways, I feel like it’s now or never—I’m young, single, and unattached, and I have a gracious amount of flexibility from my work. The stars have aligned and I am leaving TOMORROW to take my dream trip across the continent.
I’ll be there alone, for five weeks, with one suitcase. Eek!
I’m joining a bus tour, and trekking through ten countries in 35 days. I’ll be breezing and (of course) eating my way through as many as 33 cities. Somebody pinch me!
I’ll only have minimal internet access, so sadly, a blogging hiatus is necessary. But after I come back, be prepared for a flurry of posts chock-full of almost-vegan European meals, snacks, and treats, mingled with the sites, sounds, and experiences of so many scenic lands. I’M SO EXCITED!
Below is my whirlwind itinerary, in case you get curious where I’m at on a given day. Thank you all so much for being my readers, and I can’t wait to get back and share my journey with you!
