Welcome aboard Rik!
Wow. I've always wanted to live on a beautiful island.
Gong vegan, like a lot of things, including winning at sports, is a matter of motivation; in other words, if you want to do it, you'll find a way. Abstaining from eating meat is very healthful for the body. In a way, going vegan is like a quest for spiritual health- to be totally free of all animal exploitation. It's a wonderful freedom to have.
I hope you find many new friends here at VB
