Happy Herbivore in Europe: Oktoberfest Day 1
I don't know why Germany has such a bad reputation for being anti-veg. Both this trip, and my trip 5 yrs ago, I had no problem finding vegan options. What really has impressed me is that the trains in Germany take care to offer veg fare...even with icons indicating what is vegetarian.
Anyway after Hamburg, Berlin & Cologne I'm in Munich.... with Scott, my best friend Jim, his girlfriend, his sister and her friend Craig.
All of us (except Craig) are vegan or vegetarian.
Our first stop was a classic Oktobefest "watering hole" and we were all surprised to see veg options on the menu!
But most impressive is the beer... and pretzels!
