Fortunately, none of that applies to this book. Rather than the usual catalogue of possible destinations, this is a guide to researching, planning and making the most of your own trips, wherever you're going. It shows you how to make the best use of the research tools available online, so it complements rather than competes with the free resources. (Even if you live most of your life online, you may well learn about sites and apps you weren't familiar with.) There's also advice about how to enjoy yourself once you arrive - everything from meeting people to ordering in non-vegan restaurants and even preparing emergency meals in a hotel room without what would normally be regarded as cooking facilities!
Because of that approach, it should be an invaluable tool for anyone planning a trip as a vegan, wherever they're going. It'll be especially reassuring for people who have recently turned vegan and wonder whether they need to rethink their travel plans (answer: almost certainly not). Seasoned vegan travellers will also enjoy it, especially the passages where the author shares her experiences of finding something to eat in different parts of the globe, from Chile to Korea.
As well as making it applicable to any destination, the book's DIY approach also means that it doesn't really get out of date. Just the same, I'm glad I bought this new edition (even though I already have the previous one). There are some interesting additions including chapters covering adventures (cruises, festivals and the like), travelling with dogs or children, and coping with allergies and special dietary requirements when travelling.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
While I've learned plenty of tips and tricks through my own travels, Caitlin has come up with tricks of her own that I never would have thought of. Like using Doodle to see at a glance which restaurants are open when. Brilliant! There's nothing worse than trekking across town in search of a delicious vegan meal only to discover that the restaurant you picked out is closed.
Caitlin's witty writing style is a joy to read, too. I guarantee you will finish this book not only well-informed and confident about making your next trip, but also thoroughly entertained!
