Hello everybody! My name's Esti, I'm a female, I'm 18 years old & I'm currently living in the Basque Country (Even though I've got family in Éire & visit the country several times ever year).

I've been ovo-vegetarian for a very long time now but I'm considering going vegan.

Turning vegetarian has been very hard for me as my parents dissaproved of it. Luckly, my dad has now given up meat & sometimes drinks soy milk instead of cow milk when we have breakfast together, so the situation is nicer now. My grandfather used to be a hunter, but fortunately he isn't anymore. My grandparents' best friend is a butcher & he used to give them lots of meat products. There is also a fur shop next to my house. The country I'm living in is mainly known for the cruel bullfighting, etc. However, I'm very proud of my decision & I won't give up

I hope to learn new things in this vegetarian community & hope to share lots of experiences/recipes with you all.

Thaks very much for everything, lads ^^

Welcome! This might be a new nationality present on the board! Anyhow, I understand how food culture might have made it very difficult for you to go vegetarian, and I'm glad you were successful and didn't give up.
