The Healthy Voyager

Carolyn Scott-Hamilton celebrated her 10 years as a vegan as well as an entrepreneur in 2009. Carolyn is an avid traveler but she found it quite difficult to find vegan friendly restaurants abroad. After realizing she could find and/or manipulate any menu to create a meal that satisfied her as well as her dining partners, she created the Healthy Voyager. As of 2006, she and her husband, of opposing gastronomic tastes, have traveled and dined healthily and harmoniously while documenting it all on film for the Healthy Voyager.
