8 Years of Gluten-Free Globetrotter

Celebrating 8 years of Gluten-Free GlobetrotterThis month marks 8 years of this Gluten-Free Globetrotter website. This is quite the milestone considering it takes on average 6-10 years to even get a celiac diagnosis in the United States. I have been living and traveling gluten-free since my diagnosis way back in 1981. I do not know any other way of living but with celiac disease. This blog has become my passion project over the past 8 years. I hope that it has encouraged you to travel and never to let celiac disease stop you from living a full and fabulous life.

As I sit back and reflect on the past 8 years, I feel beyond grateful for all of the wonderful gluten-free travel experiences that I’ve experienced. I have also met some really amazing gluten-free travelers from across the globe. (Read more here in one of my favorite posts to date!) I encourage you to use the search tool on the side of this page to see posts from the past eight years from around the world.

Highlights of the past 8 years of Gluten-Free Globetrotter include:

In total, I have now been to 23 countries and 37 states, all while living completely gluten-free!  It has been a wonderful experience traveling the globe and eating gluten-free all along the way. I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog over the past 8 years and that I have encouraged you to travel while living with celiac disease. Thank you for reading!

The Celiac Project Podcast Episode 156: Gluten-Free Travel

The Celiac Project Podcast Episode 156

Last month, I rejoined my friends Mike and Cam over at The Celiac Project Podcast. I think this was my fourth or fifth time on the show and I’m always happy to be back. These guys are the best and if you aren’t listening to their podcast, you should be! They are both living with celiac disease and share up-to-date information that is interesting for our gluten-free community. I love their banter, their honesty, and their personal anecdotes of living with celiac.

In this episode, we share many tips including planning a gluten-free trip plus smart first steps to take while traveling when newly diagnosed with celiac.  We also share some of the ways to keep moving forward if you get glutened on a trip. If you read my Paris post, you know it happens to even us celiac veterans.
