Anyone thinking of going?

It's Friday 5th-Friday 12th October in San Francisco.

Then there is a Healthy Lifestyle Expo in Los Angeles from Friday 12th October to Sunday 14th and then a couple of days of international speakers and tours.

I am definitely interested and there is a good chance that I will be able to make it though I am not sure yet... Do you plan
on going?

I would like to go and was thinking of making a trip to that part of America this autumn, anyway. However, it is a big step for me, as I've never travelled anything like that far.

I hope you all can make it! If we were planning some sort of VF meet-up along with this then I'd definitely plan to go - and of course, I can help with planning such a thing. :D

Ps. I've been chatting online with an awesome veg*n Finn (whose living in Sweden) & my desire to visit over there just keeps growing! :D

I'm actually thinking of going to the 13th San Francisco World Veg Festival hosting the 40th IVU International Vegetarian Congress. The IVU, on that site, states they are putting together a package to tour San Francisco before and after the Veg Festival. That is really cool as I hate traveling for a presentation and seeing nothing of a new city other than the same hotel conference room :). If money and time work, I will go. It would be a bonus to meet some of my brother and sister Euro & UK veg*ns, please come! :). You can even make some money by bringing me over some good British tea :).

Looks like it would be too expensive trip for our family. :roll: So, maybe some other year.
