Vegan in Scandinavia, Part I

Honestly speaking, any new post on this blog is long-awaited... (More on that coming soon). But this one especially.

I got back from vacation close to a month ago and didn't even really begin looking at all of my photos until today. I procrastinated and procrastinated, in my usual fashion, until finally deciding to do some editing and get these babies up for the world to see.

So without further ado, here are some of my European eats, photo journal style.

We began the trip in Copenhagen, Denmark, but only briefly. Luckily for me, we had enough time to grab a quick snack in the airport before racing to our cruise ship. Who knew a Danish 7-11 of all places would carry raw, vegan goods? The US needs to follow suit. 
"Raw Cakes"- like Larabars, but more decadent.
Froosh juices and Firefly tonics- check 'em. 

And onto the first ship: Costa Luminosa
Vegan lunch options were sparse.
Salad for days, literally.
Dinners, however, were great due to a very accommodating maitre'd. 
The sauce on that gluten-free vegan pasta was spot-on. 

Geiranger, Norway
Hiking a waterfall, blueberry hard cider in tow. Shout out to my mother. 

.Flam, Norway
 Hiked another waterfall...
and refueled with a veggie burger, potatoes, and split peas from Furokroa.

Bergen, Norway
Veggie sandwich on spelt bread + a soy tea latte at Godt Brød (Good Bread).

Kristiansand, Norway
No veg food to show here, sadly. In fact, I got kicked out of an outdoor bar for eating a peach!
But they did have a cute little health food store, where I bought nothing.

Oslo, Norway
Ice bar- I'm glad I've done it, but once was definitely enough.

And a few more cruise ship eats:
I got my veggies in; even at breakfast.
And I got my chocolate in too. Here, in the form of a soy sipping chocolate.

That wraps it up for Norway, but I have a whole other week's worth of travel photos that I will be sharing soon! 
(In my opinion, the second week's eats were wayyy more exciting than the first, so get pumped).

P.S. If you're interested in more information specifically about cruising as a vegan, be sure to check out my recent Peaceful Dumpling post (here) for some tips and tricks!
