Hello!<br><br>
I am a 17 year old girl and I live in Sweden. I have been vegan for about 1,5 years. Before that, I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian for about the same amount of time. I like message boards where you discuss veg*anism, and I especially enjoy reading posts by people from other countries. I'm glad I found VB, it looks like a friendly place. It's cool to know that there are those who share my beliefs all over the world. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Welcome! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> I think you're our first member from Sweden. I need to start a list of countries. How is it there? Veg-friendly?

Thanks for the welcome! Wow, first swede here, huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Well, I would say it is pretty veg-friendly where I live (Gothenburg). Most people know exactly what a vegan is, and we have a few vegetarian restaurants. But from what I understand, there are by no means as many vegan burgers, cheeses etc. available here as in, for example the U.K. or the U.S..

Hi! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I'm glad to be here. Well, I found the board by searching for "vegetarian message board" or something along those lines. I'd heard about VB at another website, so I was curious, but I didn't know the adress.

Hi! You're the second Swedish Linnea I know, and the first one is the daughter of my ex husband -who lives in Sweden for the past twenty years. He said Linnea means a little flower like a daisy.<br><br>
I went to Sweden for a few weeks once, in 1970 something, stayed in Stockholm and loved it, loved the people and I didn't starve either...<br><br>
I'm in Malta on holiday, sunshine until 6pm at night <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> But usually I'm in England.<br><br>
Hope you enjoy it on VB

Spud,<br><br>
that is so funny you know someone else from Sweden named Linnea! Yes, my name is also a flower! The weather here is definitely not nice this time of year, though. We have slushy snow and it is about 32 degrees F. You're lucky to be in Malta!<br><br><br><br>

Welcome, Linnea.<br><br><br><br>
While you are the first person here from Sweden, we do have a vegan from Norway, Martin. He sometimes describes himself as NorVegan.<br><br><br><br>
It's nice to see you here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Linnae,<br><br>
You found VB exactly the way I did! I was websearching for "vegetarian message board", too, after having a few unpleasant experiences with a few other boards.<br><br><br><br>
There was a girl in my church Sunday School class when I was kid whose name was Linnea, and she was the kindest, sweetest person I knew then.

A norvegan? I've never met one of those, even though I been to Norway a few times <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.<br><br><br><br>

VB does seem like a friendlier place than many other boards I've visited! I feel very welcome. I am not usually an active poster though-I tend to just lurk... Maybe it will be different here where people are nicer.
