Food for a fact is a necessity life cannot exist without. For many people food is the way to one’s heart through their tummy desires. Food comes in many flavors from Asian, Mexican, Italian, African, Cuban, American and the list can go on. Their are so many varieties of foods in this world that most people wouldn't know where to start. Many people get caught up with deciding what they want at a fast food drive thru, imagine what it would be like to travel the world and try different foods while doing so. You’d probably need a little guidance on which country to start your food journey at. to help guide your curious tummies in the right direction once a month we choose Travel Foodies to answer a few questions and give us recommendations about food and traveling based on their personal Travel Foodie experience.
When two people with hungry bellies and hungry souls crossed paths, united by a big appetite and itchy feet a trip was planned and the adventure began. We both firmly believe that life is far too short to eat bad food and that there are way too many adventures to be had to stay in one place. We wander through life taking it one meal at a time in search of belly filling adventures around the globe.

We are Josh and Sarah a.k.a the Veggie Vagabonds, an adventuring duo with a passion for
food, travel and sustainability.
Walking along a dusty track in a remote national park looking for our next meal, with a tent in
our rucksacks and a vague sense of where we aim to be by sunset.
Up until the summer we were full time, however we had to come back home due to
unforseen circumstances. We will be back on the road in the next few months for an epic
We've never been to a country and not found amazing food at some point, so we'll visit a
country for it's overall culture and make the food work for us. As long as we can get fresh
ingredients we love to experiment with local recipes along the way.
We are definitely slow travelers. We like to explore and get an understanding of the people
and the culture. In Central and South America we visited 7 countries in one year, so that's
probably the most.
Everywhere we go we pick up new recipes and an understanding of the food culture. It's
great because it gives us lots of inspiration for our website and definitely influences how we
eat and live our life.
Anything we've never seen or heard of (even if it doesn't look appealing). Also being vegans
we'll always try to find vegan hangouts and check out their dishes. Oh, and spicy food, we
In Sri Lanka we found that even the dirtiest looking stall or eatery was incredibly fresh and
tasty. Generally the food was prepared in unhygienic environments and it was also eaten by
hand, however in three months of copious eating we never had a bad experience.
Being vegan, it's a lot harder to get ill from food. We will literally eat everywhere and
anywhere so over the years our stomachs have definitely toughened up. That being said, it's
best to eat fresh food and if you do get ill make sure you keep hydrated and rest.
We always have a tight budget, however if something is special and unique to a country we'll
make sure we try it. There's no point being on the other side of the world and missing out on
Food tours are something we've never tried actually. Generally we follow our senses or get
some local advice. If a place is filled with locals then we'll give it a try!
There are countless bizarre foods we've tried but never got the name of. In Malaysia we tried
a vegan fish head soup. VEGAN fish head soup. It was delicious but pretty strange!
Sri Lanka stole our hearts and filled our bellies. There was a blistering amount of fresh,
healthy and delicious curries and dishes everywhere we went. It's a veggie's dream and no
two dishes ever tasted the same. Not only this but it was cheap as chips (or curry).
It's an amazing way to meet locals! When you meet a cook or eatery owner who is proud of
their food it creates an instant connection. Plus, we're always learning about new ingredients
or cooking techniques we can try in the kitchen.
We always travel together. Wouldn't want it any other way.
Some are, however most travelers we meet are more skeptical of the unknown. We're very
We don't like to settle for bad food. In some countries where vegan food is lacking it can be
a challenge to find more than nuts and fruit for lunch. Despite this, every country has
something new to offer and it's beautiful to see regional and national differences as we travel
Say yes to everything. Follow the locals, not the tourists. If you don't ask you don't get.
Whether we're travelling or eating, sustainability is always on our mind. We want to explore
the world and have a positive impact as we do so. If you want to find out more come and find
