Traveling as a vegetarian is not as easy as it looks. Especially in Europe, where most countries pride their culinary traditions on meat-heavy dishes. On the other hand, there has been a recent rise in modern vegetarian restaurants all over the world, ones that strive to reflect contemporary takes on traditional cuisines by using fresh and seasonal ingredients.
