Veg*n international travel question
I'm asking for info on a friend's behalf, who is a frequent international traveller:
"Do you know if there is something like an association (worldwide) of vegan homestays? So that (as members) we may be a guest or a host. Maybe we may prefer to cook on our own as guests (& also serve our hosts with our recipes)..."
Kinda like veg*n specific couch-surfing organizations? Anyone know? (or wanna start one?!)
I don't know of anything like that existing... but you can find lots of veg-friendly spots on existing websites. User hespedal used to open her couch up to randoms and met some cool folks along the way.
I know there is such a group on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=373167054324
I hope that helps :)
It would take some planning but I'm sure you could plan a trip with all veg*n hosts. There are at least 2 vegan/vegetarian groups on CS. Also you could use their advanced search to look for profiles that contain the word vegan.
We've been members for a few years and I don't think we've ever hosted vegans (except for a fellow Vegwebber...but that wasn't arranged through CS.). We've have hosted a few vegetarians.
...a search of Couchsurfing turned up 804 people willing to host that list vegan in their profile.
