There are a few of us on the forum who have been discussing a Vegan Vacation in the summer of 2006, a year from now. I know that there is a vegan fitness week over in the UK each summer and Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness is going to sponsor a Vegan Vacation "temp name since it's appropriate" here in the US/Mexico/Caribbean area.

So we're looking for a planning/organizing committee. Of course, I want to be on it, and I know that Compassionategirl and Topher have also expressed great interest in helping to organize it.

We can collectively brainstorm all kinds of ideas of When/Where/For How Long/and What we'll do for our Vegan Vacation. Of course there will be a Vegan Fitness theme to it with emphasis on health/wellness/fitness/Bodybuilding/Nutrition and…..FUN as we meet in person and hang out for a week or longer.

So please share all of your thoughts here on this thread, and EVERYONE is welcome to post ideas/suggestions and then once we're somewhat organized, we'll get a committee together to work out all specific details for costs, accomodations, traveling, etc. (the research part, but we have nearly a year to get that done).

So as Nat says……"start saving some money now" So we can have lots of fun next summer.

Here are some of MY suggestions for places and times. My thoughts on events and WHAT we'll do will follow (I'm at work right now and will be busy all night with projects but will add more thoughts soon).


Vacation Destination Brainstorming 2006:

San Diego, CA
Key West, FL
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Hollywood, CA
St. Thomas, US Virgin Island
Nassau, Bahamas
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Cozumel/Cancun Mexico
Portland, OR
Aruba
San Francisco, CA
Las Vegas, NV
Phoenix, AZ


Vacation Dates Brainstorming 2006:

End of June
Beginning of July
Middle of July
End of July
Beginning of August
Middle of August
End of August

So PLEASE get EXCITED about this and add any input you wish!

-Robert Cheeke

I AM!

I don't give any input (i trustfully lay it in your capable hands), but i'll face anything to be there, too!

:!: :mrgreen: :!: :D :!: 8) :!:

Virgin Island and Bahamas definitely sound nice, but i bet no matter where it takes place, it's gonna be a great time. End of June sounds best - it's closest! ;-) :D

I totally agree with what Daywalker said. Bahamas, Virgin island, or Mexico sound great!!!!

In fact, I am a huge fan of Cancun mexico. Breath taking beaches, and reasonably priced.

But any of those three places sound truly "vacationy".

Mexico would be good as I believe it is relatively cheap. What's it like for vegans though?

WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO GET EXCITED ABOUT THIS! :P

Today I was thinking about the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas. It is out in the Caribbean and it even has vegan health food stores. That would be a concern about some of the places in Mexico (I've been to all of those places I listed except Cancun, but I"ve been to nearby Cozumel and Playa Del Carmen).

In St. Thomas, we'd be able to train, eat a variety of vegan foods, hike, take boat rides to other nearby Islands, hang out on the beaches, etc.

This is a photo from the Vegan-friendly health food store I visited in St. Thomas (read the background and you'll see VEGAN).

We might possibly all need passports (US and non-US residents, but I'm not sure, since it's a US-owned Island).

St. Thomas is just one option, we still have many months to plan this, and I hope to get lots of input from many of you.

If you're interested in seeing some of my own personal Caribbean photos (for those who haven't been there) click on these links:

http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/article/229

http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/article/215

Those photos were taken a few years ago. I have some REALLY cool ones from St. Thomas but not digital, I'd have to scan them one of these days to post them, and perhaps I'll do that if the Caribbean is a place that it sounds like many are interested in.

Anyway, I hope to hear some input from you guys and girls, it sounds it could be a really fun time! 8)

Awe. Cute pic Robert. Anyway, That does sound exciting, But I wouldn't be able to make it. Unless of course it's in Portland. Cancun sounds cool though. That would be a fun place for people to meet.

Any of the above sound good to me. 8) I'm up for a vegan vacation 2006. I just don't know how it will compare to the glamourous city of Manchester, UK in 2005 though. :lol:

oi!

well you have to say that your hosts were glamorous! and even kept you well fed during your stay!

edinburgh is so so so so much better though. im still trying to get the 2006 vegan fitness week up here. if it was at the end of july, people could stay on for the edinburgh festival (largest arts festival in the world).

i would probably have to pass on the vegan BB week as i have too much family living in other countries and i have to be careful what i spend my holiday time on in future.

Well, I would prefer Europe, because of the travelling costs, but a vegan holiday in the US or anyway sounds good to me.

Vampy, you only want to go there because cannabis is legal over there! :lol:

:wink: :D

I still vote for somewhere where the sun shines, there is a beach and ... nothing, that should do :D And of course a gym we can infest :twisted:

Hoi Vamprilla,

well, you're welcome to The Netherlands, but I think there are more lovely places to visit than Amsterdam.

Vamprilla,

Don't worry about Daywalker, he jokes around all the time. He's just playing around.

---Thanks for the suggestions so far about the Vegan Vacation. I'd love to go to Europe, I was just thinking of hosting one over here in the US/Caribbean, since there is already a big vegan fitness gathering in the UK.

Obviously we still have plenty of time to keep the suggestions and ideas coming.

Have a great day everyone,

-Robert

Vamprilla, please, no! :shock:
:cry:

Listen to Richard, he knows me by now! ;-)
I was just joking.
Everytime i hear someone talking of a trip to Amsterdam, i have to think of that, because when i was in school, many youths just went there to smoke THC :(
It's not very far from here and you can easily go there on a weekend trip.

Yeah, i thought the same!
If possible, i want to visit both next year! I've never been out of Europe before, so i really would love to come over to the other side of the world. Plus i need a hot place for the holidays 8)

love and peace,
Daywalker
