Subject: Thanksgiving week available - Omni Cancun - 11/23-11/30

Due to circumstances, I have my luxury oceanview studio at the Omni Cancun for Thanksgiving week - 11/23-11/30. The Omni is a 5-star resort situated about 1/2-2/3 down the hotel zone where the beach is the best. It's one of the top rated resorts in Cancun. I have owned a unit at the Omni Cancun for several years now and always love going. A situation has come up that forces me to make this week available. Thanksgiving week is a very high demand week, but I'm offering it for only $700.

Thank you, Greg

Subject: Vegetarian B&Bs in London

My husband and I (vegans) and my mother (omnivore, but good sport) are thinking about spending a week in London, England, over Christmas. While Jeff and I have had good experiences with vegie B&Bs in Great Britain in general, London is the exception. Also, my mother is leery of the idea of B&Bs, never having stayed in one, but she is willing to take a chance if I can assure her that it is "nice", that she'll have her own bathroom, etc. Any suggestions? It doesn't have to be right in the heart of the City, but we will be concentrating on the museums and other "indoors" sightseeing! Thanks!

Subject: Vegan Cruising

Just to let you know that Carnival and Royal Caribbean both have vegatarian menus but you will need to do some homework on vegan menus. I did notice that you posted on the "other travel bulletin board" and some of their information was outdated. Dolphin Cruise Lines has been out of business for over 2 yrs now. They were the best when it came to vegan cruising but they were bought out by I believe Norwegian Cruise lines and they do not do a good job at vegan menus. I can try to help you make a decision if you would like to contact me directly at

Subject: Vegan options on cruise ships?

I am considering taking a cruise for the first time, and I'm wondering if, as a vegan, I'll be stuck eating nothing but lettuce the entire time. Does any one have any suggestions on cruise lines that are particularly vegan-friendly? It has to be a cruise line that sails out of Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. I'm looking at Carnival or Royal Carribean in particular, so any info you have on them would be especially helpful. TIA!

Subject: vegetarian in Sicily

I am vegetarian since 27 years, I find very easy not having meat meals in our Island. We are a French Italian couple, we run in SICILY a SCIACCA TERME in the middle of the ancient Greek temples itinerary our self catering accommodation, (fully equipped, 1 or 2 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, lounge, and patio or garden) situated in an old farm house recently renovated & fully heated. 1 Km. from town center, 2 miles from the sea,

Renting a self catering apartment is a great way to save money, especially if you are vegetarian. You have all the advantages of independence, privacy and comfort.

You can receive friends and put them up. You can cook your own meals or buy pizza from a local pizzeria to eat at home. If you choose to eat out instead there are restaurants everywhere

We speak English and French. Please visit our site:

I spent 3 weeks in China, mostly in Sichuan and ate loads of great veggie food. Our cunning trick was to persuade a chinese friend to write the characters for "we are vegetarian, we don't eat meat or fish, not even a little bit, we like tofu, peanuts, mushrooms, rice, and all types of vegetables" it worked a treat!!
