I proudly reblog this story written by my wife, Florence, with a special introduction by my blog buddy, Celeste Dimilla.

Honk If You're Vegan

Until just over a month ago, I knew nothing about Croatia, but now I want to go! This came about when my blogger buddy, Mike, shared about his extended tour there. From his posts, it sounded like a wonderful place. When I read about the quiet coves, sandy beaches, bike paths and boutique hotels on the 1,000 plus islands of theDalmatian Archipelago, however; this beach girl was sold!

But before I pack my bags I need to know if I can eat vegan there? According to Mike’s wife, Florence, the answer is YES! Here’s what she has to say:

A Vegan in Croatia, by Florence Lince

When traveling I always worry about being able to eat right.  Anyone with a special lifestyle can relate, be it having gluten intolerance or nut allergies or even, good heavens, being a Vegan!  Recently my husband and I were selected to…

  1. Thanks for the reblog Mike! You really have made me want to visit Croatia. So many places to go, so little money!! Celeste “The Honking Vegan” – honk, honk!
    PS – I’m experimenting with signing my name like you see above, not sure if I’m gonna stick with it.

      Ha ha – I like it, and I think people who are familiar with your blog will enjoy your new signature, too. Although people not familiar with your blog may not understand the relevance of the verb, why not give it a try? You will find out soon if you like it enough to stick with it.

  2. I find it intriguing that all your recent posts have been about Croatia, and I wondered if you had already gone there. I see you are still in Scotland, but you must be less than enamored with it. Those beaches are looking pretty good right now!

      It is timely that you should inquire about Croatia, Marilyn. We just purchased our flight tickets. We leave Scotland next Saturday for Šibenik, Croatia, on the Dalmatian Coast. Since we have been feeling hunkered down for the season in Scotland, we found a way to spend the next three months more economically before our next move as Six Monthers in January to Spain. It seems I will have a few more Croatia stories to share before all is said and done. 🙂

  3. Hi Florence and Mike, Great post about being a vegan in Croatia – it sounds like all the chefs rose to the occasion. It’s wonderful that they had all that fresh produce. And I see from your comment above that you’re heading back for 3 months. How exciting! You’ll get to experience other seasons. Is Šibenik a place you visited on your recent trip? Will you be able to hop a boat to Italy if you want? Can’t wait to hear all about it. All the best, Terri

    • Mike Lince says:

      Hi Terri and James. Yes, we visited Šibenik. It is at the mouth of the Krka River. Split is just down the coast and will be our port of entry and from where ferries run to Italy. We are particularly interested in an excursion to Medjugorje in the Herzegovina region where apparitions of the Virgin Mary have been reported. We also hope to take in previously unexplored areas like Istria, Zadar, Rijecka and a bit more of the interior. The adventure starts soon! Thanks, Mike

You fill your posts with a lot of helpful information, intriguing facts and history and I am grateful for your photos and discussions about food,wines and customs, too! A great reblog of some more interesting news about food! Yummy!

    • Mike Lince says:

      I have to give Florence credit for this post. While I am typically writing about sights and new surroundings, she is thinking and writing in a whole different direction. And I’m quite please about that – we complement each other well! – Mike
