Hello from Oxford

#1 Postby TomSan » Tue Jan 29, 2013 3:26 pm

Hi all,

I recently moved to Oxford in the UK after working as an English teacher for years in various countries. I've been a vegetarian for about ten years (very easy in China; not so easy in Russia!) but decided as a new year's resolution to get big and start to move towards a more vegan lifestyle. I like the idea of challenging people's preconceptions that being vegans means being weak and weedy.

I was directed here by Robert's excellent book and it seems like a really useful resource so far.

Tom

Hi Tom and welcome,

im also new to Veganism (only about 4 months) but its going well, i live just outside Oxford, just for info there is a cafe in town that does vegan baguettes and a pretty good veggie/vegan restaurant called the Gardners arms in Jerhico.

Good luck with it all.

Thanks all for the welcome.

Jacob - thanks for the tip, there's no doubt the Gardners arms is a good place for a pint and a pie! Let me know if you discover any other good spots.
