The Sightseeing Celiac (and sidekick)
A Gluten Free Guide to Travel
My love of travel started well before my Celiac diagnosis in 2011. Prior to that I had visited 18 countries with no plan to stop. When I was diagnosed, my very first thought was, "how am I going to travel!???" Travel was my one true love, well, until I met my husband :)
At the time of my diagnosis my husband and I had already booked a trip to Ireland, so we decided to give it a try. I didn't die. I didn't even get sick. So a few years later we made a big leap and and booked a trip to SE Asia. I am on numerous Facebook Celiac support groups, travel groups and blogs and I saw so many people terrified to leave their town, let alone their country. I already knew how to navigate traveling to very different places, so I thought, what if I could blog about it as I go? SE Asia was my leap, it was my challenge to myself. If I could accomplish this gluten free, I could go anywhere.
This blog is dedicated to you. It is dedicated to those who want to make the leap, are standing on the edge, but need a hand. Your leap might be to somewhere exotic, or another town in your home country, but if it's a leap for you, it's still a leap! I will write in detail what I did, to help you along the path. I love talking, so don't be afraid to reach out to me!
