Help me out kids. I'm planning a study abroad trip in Greece for the summer. I'll visit Athens, Crete, and some other places.



Any pointers? (I'm vegan.) Anyone been there? Good recommendations? How do I say "no cheese" in Greek?

When I was a (non-vegetarian, but incredibly picky) kid on vacation in greece, I lived on fruits, vegetables, bread, and Sprite. All of those things are present in abundance. Not the MOST balanced diet, but it's definitely do-able. And since you're not a kid, replace the Sprite with beer.

falafel, hummus, veggies, bread and olive oil, saffron rice, tabouli....you'll have lots of choices! My friend's MIL lives in Cyprus and visits often. She said there is tons of veg*n friendly food.

I've read that hummus is pretty rare where I'm headed... And falafel is homemade and 50/50 chance includes cheese. Tabbouli is more of a Middle Eastern thing, than a Greek Isles thing. And I doubt I'll find much saffron rice.



I do expect to live off of bread, dolmas, and stuffed tomatoes. And whatever else I cook/buy at not a restaurant.

Yes. It will be good. I'm planning on going to Europe next summer, and I'm excited for Italy and Greece, solely because of the produce.



Falafel, hummus, all our vegan staples--you will find those in the middle east way more than in the mediterranean.

They put cheese *in* the falafel? Maybe you can bring some of the Fantastic falafel mix with you to make your own. I'm sure you will find food to eat. You might have to do alot of your own cooking. Good Luck!!
