The Cost of Eating Vegan for a Day in Faroe Islands

In March, Sam and I had the amazing opportunity to go to the Faroe Islands. It's somewhere Sam has always wanted to go, so I surprised him with a trip for Christmas and his Birthday. The beautiful Nordic country, known for its jaw-dropping natural scenery and the infamous Lake Over the Ocean does not necessarily have the climate to support the growth of vegetables and other plants. Relying mostly on greenhouses, stubborn vegetation and imports for produce, the beautiful island was not thriving with vegan options. It's an incredibly beautiful place, however, it's not the easiest on a vegan's wallet. Or your stomach for that matter, due to the availability of grains and the lack of fresh vegetables. Regardless, we'd still go again in a heart beat. Here's a glimpse of what it costs to eat vegan for a day in the Faroe Islands. Ps. Me and Sam are big snackers so this may not be entirely the same for everyone. And, if you don't have a problem with wheat, your trip will be significantly less costly.
