Hi ya!

I'm writing from Alicante, in the Mediterranean coast in Spain. I´ve been reading you for a few months but I think It's time I wrote in the forum!

I´m 25 years old girl and I´m a teacher (currently working with disabled people but preparing my exam for getting a job in a public school). I´ve just come back from Scotland where I learnt English (Or at least I tried it in these 5 months). As a foreigner I must have made several grammar and spelling mistakes but I hope this matter won´t bother you... (I´m still studying to improve it)

I've been a vegetarian for 7 years and now I'm looking for vegetarian friends in order to share ideas, info, opinions... It´s not the easiest thing being veggie in Spain. While it is true that the Mediterranean diet is healthy and consist of vegetables, legumes, cereals and fruits it is also a fact that every dish has got at least a little bit of meat or fish We barely have veggie options in restaurants and I really fed up with people telling me I'm not healthy and all that rubbish.

Well I hope to write more frequently here, you're great!

See you!

Your English is fine, don't worry about it!

We have a Spanish thread here: if you would like to come chat with us in your native tongue (and perhaps help us a little with our grammar and such!)

Hope you enjoy VB!

Welcome to VB and greetings to Spain!

I already saw your great post with lots of info (in Bell's thread about her experience of being vegan in Spain), and I hope to read more from you soon.

(Unfortunately we probably won't meet in the Spanish thread any time soon, as I must admit that I only remember a few words of Spanish and never really knew much more).

Welcome to the boards. Your english is just fine, don't worry about it. English isn't my first language either and I get by.

I'm looking forward to reading your posts on here.
