{Vegan Travel Tips}

I’m on my way to Germany… to take in the sights, visit an old friend, and, of course, to report on vegan eats! I spent weeks filling my Moleskine with a ton of delicious-sounding vegan options around the land of Bratwurst and Weiner Schnitzel. I can’t […]

Day 14 in Deutschland, The Baltic and Berlin

And done! After a 2-week whirlwind of travel, I am now resting my behind on the couch, adjusting my clock back to the Eastern timezone. Here are the highlights of my last day in Germany.  I really wanted to see the Baltic Sea before heading […]

Day 13 in Deutschland, Stick a Fork In Me (I’m sorry Hamburg)

Day 13 in Deutschland, Stick a Fork In Me (I’m sorry Hamburg)

Hamburg–you big, noisy thing, you–I’m spent. Had I arrived in your arms days, even hours, ago, I may have had the moxy to embrace you back. But I’m tired now. I don’t even want to force myself to go through the motions of an excited […]

Day 12 in Deutschland, Easy Vegan in Bremen

Day 12 in Deutschland, Easy Vegan in Bremen

After brief appreciation (Griswald Grand Canyon style) of Kölner Dom, I moved on from Köln. With my days counting down quickly, I needed to do some cities flash pan speed. I boarded an early train north, foolishly thinking it’d be a quiet and secluded ride. […]

Day 11 in Deutschland, Up the Rhine and Onto Cologne

Day 11 in Deutschland, Up the Rhine and Onto Cologne

This simple breakfast gave me the strength I needed to see the rest of the sites in Bacharach and then head north on the Rhine river. Some wheat Wasa’s covered in strawberry jam. They even had this Wasa-dispenser. Its bottom slides open to reveal a waiting […]

Day 9 in Deutschland, Busting Out With Rail Pass {Frankfurt}

Day 9 in Deutschland, Busting Out With Rail Pass {Frankfurt}

It is time for me to bust out and go north on the DB, Germany’s train system. I bought a 6-day German Rail Pass to maximize sightseeing and deliver me snug to Berlin for my flight back to New York. Navigating a the system had […]

Day 10 in Deutschland, Vegan Fairy Tales {Bacharach}

Day 10 in Deutschland, Vegan Fairy Tales {Bacharach}

I left the bustle of Frankfurt by way of a double decker diesel train. Thankfully day 2 of my train adventure did not involve elbowing anyone in the head. It did, however, involve my missing a key transfer point. Thanks to the collective efforts of […]

Day 8 in Deutschland, The Black Forest

Day 8 in Deutschland, The Black Forest

I’m so glad we made our way into the Black Forest region, heading southeast from Kemnath towards the Swiss border. Our first stop was Stuttgart. With more than 5 million people residing in the Stuttgart metropolitan region, it’s no wonder that the city is bustling […]

Day 7 in Deutschland, Baking a Cake

Day 7 in Deutschland, Baking a Cake

Today was a special occasion for my friend’s family… so we made a vegan cake! I was excited to use Biovegan’s Zuckerstreusel on top which I had picked up at Bio Bio. We used a coconut-rice milk with the only vinegar in the pantry, white vinegar, […]

Day 6 in Deutschland, Beautiful Dresden

Day 6 in Deutschland, Beautiful Dresden

With a name like Flax, a vegan can presume she’s going to get a good meal. And that is certainly what happened at Flax, the hip all-vegan eatery in beautiful Dresden’s new side of the city– or Dresden-Neustadt. Driving through the streets of Dresden-Neustadt, we were […]

Day 4 in Deutschland, Hanging About Kemnath

Day 4 in Deutschland, Hanging About Kemnath

Day 4 in Germany was designated a relax day. I am not staying at a hotel, after all. I am invading a family. Laundry must be done, food shopping, etc. Today I spent the day the day hanging about Kemnath. Starting with a walk to […]

Day 5 in Deutschland, Kristall Palm Beach

Day 5 in Deutschland, Kristall Palm Beach

Kristall Palm Beach is one part water park, one part bath house. With temperatures passing the 100 degree mark, we spent the day in various forms of water. This is the crystal pool, a light and clear pool. They also had a zinc pool and […]

Day 3 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Nürnberg, Germany

Day 3 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Nürnberg, Germany

Nürnberg, a Bavarian city about an hour away from where I am staying, is a  bit bustling. It at points felt like San Francisco, then Boston… and then like a Medieval village with an impressive Imperial castle and exquisitely ornate spired churches… and then there’s […]

Day 2 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Germany

Day 2 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Germany

Day 2 in Germany started with a trip to the army base, where photography is prohibited unfortunately. My friend pays American prices for gas on the base, thank goodness, as European gas prices are so high not even tacking on the exchange rate. We missed […]

Day 1 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Bayreuth, Germany

Day 1 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Bayreuth, Germany

You can be tossed an awful lot of bad variables on a long flight. Luckily, my fight with Brussels Airlines was perfect–I had plenty of space with an empty seta next to me, a hot vegan meal, and plenty of mindless movies to lull my brain into […]
