Update – Since this post was published the day of the chat changed from Monday to Thursday
Are you struck with wanderlust but worry about travel as a vegan? Don’t be! Join the new weekly #vegantravel chat on Twitter and get inspired by great vegan travellers.
This week we’re proud to announce the arrival of the first Twitter chat for vegan travel addicts. For several weeks we’ve been discussing with other great vegan travel bloggers about starting a Twitter travel chat where we can all share our experiences and best travel tips to help others to see the world as we do, both responsibly and with a full stomach.
We’ve been running the chat for a couple of weeks without too much promotion to work out all the kinks and we’re proud to say that we’ve finally worked out the best format and timings so that vegan communities around the world can take part.
So what is the #vegantravel chat?
