FotografiaBasicaWhen I first started traveling, finding vegan (or even vegetarian) options abroad was fairly tough except in place with, for example, a wisespread Buddhist culture. But with the explosion in the numbers of vegetarians around the world, now there are not only more restaurants offering options or even wholly devoted to them, but there are specially curated vegan menus at luxury hotel chains, vegan adventure holiday operators, and even relaxing cruelty-free resorts. The UK website…

  • When I lived in Miami, a number of my friends and acquaintances would head for vacations in Asheville (two couples even owned properties there), which is an oasis of blue, progressivism, and gay-friendliness in a state that despite having a Democratic governor still tilts too rightwing for my taste. But I digress - Asheville is known for its shopping, entertainment, and dining, and USA Today recently came out with a list of the town's ten best restaurants: https://www.10best.com/interests/food-travel/best-restaurants-ashev...

We'll wait and see if Thailand's attempt to fleece the tourist continues or evolves. Chef LeeZ cooking class Bangkok is T. A, #1 for over 10 consecutive years. www.chefleez.com
