New York Times: 52 Places to go in 2015

New York Times: 52 Places to go in 2015

The New York Times just posted their annual 52 Places to Go report for 2015. I absolutely love looking at this list. This year, their animated photos look fantastic and make these locations look even more enticing than ever before.

I was pleasantly surprised to see eight destinations on this list that I have been to in the past. I was also excited to see San Antonio, Texas on this list because I am traveling there next month. I have traveled to Philadelphia, Orlando, Lower Manhattan, New Orleans, The Catskills, Quebec City, Miami Beach, and Rome. As with all of my travel, these trips were completely gluten-free!

This locations on my wishlist include: Cuba, Yellowstone National Park, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Morocco, Portugal, and Spain. I am also very intrigued by Papua New Guinea and have read many books about this remote location. I am not sure how safety this country is just yet, so I think this will be a much later in life destination.

What is on your 2015 travel wishlist? Share your dream destinations in the comments below!

    I am traveling to South Africa for 3 weeks in early June. Aside from Cape Town, I am having difficulty finding any information on gluten free restaurants. While excited for my adventure, I do have celiac and am terrified! Any suggestions?

      Janet – My hubby is from South Africa and I agreed to go this fall with him for two weeks. It will be the first time that I have been there since diagnosed 18 months ago so I understand your fears. We have just begun to research as well so I can tell you what I know so far.
      There is a Facebook page entitled “Celiac Disease South Africa – Its a Journey” that I recently joined. They may be able to help you with specific questions. My husband called the head of the Celiac Support Group in Johannesburg and she said that most restaurants you can explain what you need. Unfortunately there is no food labelling law in South Africa so I would be careful with foods. Some of the major grocery stores do carry gluten free foods now. There is Woolworths (everyone calls it Woolies), Pick and Pay, Checkers and Spar which I have read all carry gluten free foods. I have found a few restaurants and bakeries that offer gluten free in Johannesburg as well. Gluten free foods are also available at Dischem Pharmacies and Wellness Warehouse. We are staying at places that have kitchens so that I can cook most of my meals and I will certainly pack an extra suitcase with a few utensils and other items. I am happy to help you further with any specifics – we have family that live in Johannesburg and many friends who live in Cape Town. My email address is: shannpann@gmail.com
