This June, I'm going on a three week trip to France, Italy, and Greece with People to People Student Ambassadors. Supposedly, they have a vegetarian choice at every meal, but I'm worried that these will have fish in them.<br><br><br><br>
Has anyone been on a trip with People to People or know someone who went that could tell me about the food? I don't want to be stuck eating salad for three weeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:">

I would really be proactive about it if I were in your shoes....pack along a stash of nuts and dried fruit for your travel and then when you arrive at each location get someone to take you to a local market where you can stock up on more healthy snacks to have on hand.<br><br><br><br>
I know nothing about the group that you are going with but I am sure there will be adults at each location to facilitate and ensure that things run smoothly. Thaose adults will be your link to phoning ahead to each restaurant/home/hotel etc to ensure that there is a true veg. meal for you.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Sorry, I have no conclusive answer for you, but thought you might be reassured to know that whilst I have been to plenty of places on the continent that dont offer a vegetarian option (why o why do I get dragged to steakhouses?!?) I have never been offered fish as a vegetarian option. Italy tends to be GREAT for being veggie, cos you can usually eat of a normal menu. I seem to remember that greece is not terrible either, and if you end up with salad, at least it will be a filling one. Added to that, the people who organize this kind of thing usually know that what one "vegetarian" eats, others will not, and so err on the side of caution. This probably means that you will be eating a lot of pasta with mushrooms in a tomato sauce, but will not be offered cod fillets. If youre really worried, contact the organizers and check that the vegetarian meals dont contain fish. Even if they believe fish is veggie, they should be happy to answer your question and just assume you are fussy or allergic to fish or something.

you could always check out the vegan passport (whether you're vegan or veg)- it translates into umpteen languages the basic message that you don't want meat, fish, chicken broth, etc in your food. you can learn how to say it in each language or just flash the page at whomever you need to understand.

That rocks! I'm assuming it says the exact same thing in every language.<br><br><br><br>
What exactly does it say? And what languages does it have?<br><br><br><br>
If it has Korean, gaianbudo should get it.<br><br><br><br>
