Hi!! How are you doing? I just wanted to introduce myself. My name's Miriam and I'm 27 years old. I've been a vegetarian for 10 years (vegan at home, vegetarian in society if necessary).<br><br>
I live in Murcia (Spain). It's really tough being veggie in Spain but at least fruits, vegetables and legums that grow in this area are really delicious.<br><br>
I'm a teacher and I love travelling. I enjoy simple things: reading books, walking in the country...<br><br>
I've lived in other countries in Europe such as Latvia or UK, but I'm here because I'm really keen on meeting vegetarian/vegan people around the world.<br><br>
See you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Hi Keira and welcome to VB!<br><br>
I've been wanting to go to mainland Spain on holiday some time. I've been to Grand Canaria and Majorca, but that was ages ago long before I became vegetarian and vegan. Where did you live in the UK? I live in Oxfordshire.

I lived in Dundee, Scotland <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> What cities would you like to visit? Where I live there are a lot of british people, you know, sun beach... If you're looking for a cultural trip I recommend you Granada, Barcelona and Madrid. If you finally come here tell me If I can help you with some advices about how to survive in Spain being veggie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> Cheers

I've been wanting to visit Barcelona, but maybe also some places in the south. I'm actually not British myself, and certainly not looking to go somewhere in Spain where I risk running into a lot of Brits <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> (They don't have the best holiday-in-Spain reputation, you know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">)

Well from the South Granada, Sevilla perhaps Murcia XD . Personally I don't like the south so much... A lot of "jamón", bullfights...

Welcome! I've been hoping to take a trip to Spain again soon too (with Indian Summer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ). I've not been to the north at all, and we've talked some about taking the ferry to Santander/Bilbao, and I'd love to see Segovia as well. Barcelona was lovely, and so veg friendly! I'm hoping that I can convince IS to move there one day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Do you have access to vegan substitutes like soyamilk, etc. in Murcia? Valencia seemed quite vegan friendly as well, but it's a bit bigger city I suppose.

Hi IamJen! Thank you very much for the welcome! Well, you just take IS to Barcelona and you'll see, no trouble to convince him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> You'll have no problem finding vegan substitutes in Spain. Even in the smallest towns you can buy soya, almond or chufa milk (horchata), not forgetting tofu or soya yogurts and stuff. I strongly recommend you buying fruits and veggies in traditional markets, you will flip out about their taste. But just in tradicional markets not supermarkets with their tomato-medicine-taste. There are small shops called "HerboristerÃ*as" where you can find the most sofisticated vegan products. The main problem here is eating out but you can look on the Internet vegetarian restaurants. Good luck !! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br>
Cuculain42 thank you for the welcome!!
