Next week, blogger Kristin Lajeunesse will embark on the trip of a lifetime—she will be eating at every 100-percent vegan restaurant in America, including Alaska and Hawaii. The upstate NY native will leave on August 27, the five-year anniversary of her commitment to a vegan lifestyle, and plans to dine at more than 1,000 establishments. The trip will take her through every major US city and in addition to eating the food, she will also be writing reviews, interviewing restaurant owners, and volunteering at animal sanctuaries. While she is funding most of the estimated $10,000-trip herself, she is considering launching a Kickstarter campaign.
