Hey !<br><br>
I am 16, a french girl and I'd like to meet people who have common features with me ( vegetarism is a common feature !).<br><br>
In August I'm going to go during 2 weeks in Bristol, so if somebody there live there, maybe he could give me some tips (how to buy, where eating , how to do ( maybe are there some activists ?!)<br><br>
Thanks everybody !! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Thanks everybody for the nice welcome !<br><br>
I must make big mistakes no ?<br><br>
I have received no PM ! What is this story ?<br><br>
Any way, how do you live with your vegeta*isme ? What are the troubles you get ? I decided to not eat any more dairy products (I eat my grandmother's eggs sometimes cause I think it is a exchange with her chicken (Iknow it's not a chicken it's a girl-chicken lol but I forgot ze name !))for several months. In a few days I'm going to go to my father's, he still doesn't know Irefuse now milk, cheese, ice cream, so I don't know which react he'll get.<br><br>
There were no problem for meat but now I think he won't understand.<br><br>
I'm sure of my choices, but I'm not proud of the fear I get when I imagine myself with omnivores. Isn't it a sign that I'm not strong ?<br><br>
Is there anybody who feel the same way ?<br><br>
Thanks

OK ! Sorry I didn't understand the question about 80 ! ( excuse me I'm not stupid !)<br><br>
- yes we say 4 * 20 for 80 !!! It's true it is strange, we complicate simple things !!<br><br>
- for 90 we say 4*20, 10 without a link between 20 and 10 !!<br><br><br><br>
Ha, what do u think the PM was about ? lol

Hey again!<br><br><br><br>
Your English is just fine, don't worry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Luckily I'm not having many troubles with being vegan. I understand that you're concerned about visiting your father. Keep us posted about your trip.<br><br><br><br>
I don't think you're not strong, in fact you are strong. I don't know if I would have been strong enough to be veg*n with 16. It's only natural that you're concerned about being with omnis, but it's not your fault. There are many misconceptions about veg*ns among omnis and many of us know many of the jokes and prejudices a veg*n will encounter. The most important thing is not to allow it to get you down. Veg*nism is a great lifestyle choice! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
p.s. isn't a girl chicken a "hen"? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Welcome to the boards, Marie line!<br><br><br><br>
Your English is fine--don't worry. In fact, it's better than a lot of people for whom English is their primary language. If I tried writing in French, you'd laugh for days.<br><br><br><br>
Hope you like it here! I'm sure you'll find all kinds of support.

Marie- Is it hard to be vegetarian in France? I used to date a guy who wanted to take me to France but said I would have to eat only bread and cheese (and I didn't even want to eat cheese!)<br><br><br><br>
He said in France, people eat many different animals and thick creamy sauces and that if I said I did not want it, the waiter would laugh at me. He spent a lot of time there, so I believed him.<br><br><br><br>
Have you seen the movie Babbette's Feast? It is Dutch, but it is about a French woman who makes this fancy French food for these ordinary people who only eat dried herring and gruel. The French food is really disturbing (from a vegetarian point of view).

Hey !!<br><br>
France is THE cheese's country so if u refuse milk, butter,cream( we put butter everywhere !!) u're not realy understand !!<br><br>
But also this I decided to stop this sort of cruauty : let milk to ze ... hmmmm.... baby's cows !...?.....<br><br>
No, I don't know this film, I am going to look for it but if it's dutch maybe it'll be hard to find it !!<br><br>
Vegetarian is not so hard to be understand but veganism ... in France !!!! A very few people practise it 100%.... You take such a different point of view on the society's evolution !!!<br><br>
I don't know if u know what I mean ???<br><br>
Any way !!

Bonjour Marie,<br><br><br><br>
I am sorry, but my French is terrible. (Pardonnez-moi s'il vous plaît, mais je parle français très mal.)<br><br><br><br>
Let me suggest some things for you to do, though.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Visit the <i>Alliance Végétarienne</i> website and ask them what advice they might have for you.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ivu.org/avf/" target="_blank">http://www.ivu.org/avf/</a><br><br><br><br>
They also have a discussion forum where you are encouraged to ask questions:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ivu.org/avf/EntreNous/FrameEntrenFor.html" target="_blank">http://www.ivu.org/avf/EntreNous/FrameEntrenFor.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Also visit the <b>Bristol Vegetarian and Vegan Society</b> website:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ivu.org/bristolveg/" target="_blank">http://www.ivu.org/bristolveg/</a><br><br><br><br>
They have a Local Guide to veg-friendly restaurants here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ivu.org/bristolveg/bvs-gde.htm" target="_blank">http://www.ivu.org/bristolveg/bvs-gde.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
And e-mail them at the contact address(es) listed:<br><br><br><br>
[email protected]?subject=Bristol Vege... Vegan Society<br><br><br><br>
You might also contact the national veg*n societies in the UK, because the local group only has a part time volunteer staff.<br><br><br><br>
The Vegetarian Society<br><br><a href="http://www.vegsoc.org/" target="_blank">http://www.vegsoc.org/</a><br><br><br><br>
The Vegan Society<br><br><a href="http://www.vegansociety.com/" target="_blank">http://www.vegansociety.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
The International Vegetarian Union<br><br><a href="http://www.ivu.org" target="_blank">www.ivu.org</a><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Bon chance et bon voyage, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
