A few years ago, my friend Kristen asked me to help her plan a European vacation. She asked me where to eat, where to shop, and what was near her hotel. I quickly started doing research and realized I loved helping another celiac travel the world. Over time, my services have grown and planning gluten-free vacations for others has become one of my favorite parts of writing this website.
My Gluten-Free Globetrotter itinerary process usually starts with someone writing me a frantic email about being scared to travel and manage being gluten-free away from home. It usually ends with wonderful photos of gluten-free dishes from around the world. In between, we work through food preferences and additional allergies, where in the world they want to travel, and all concerns about traveling gluten-free away from home. I then start my research and planning of their gluten-free travels. Depending on the level of planning and desired services, the whole process usually takes less than one month.
As a lifelong celiac, all of my vacations have always been gluten-free. I’ve always had a passion for travel and I absolutely love learning about different places, cultures, and cuisines for my own gluten-free vacations. Helping others plan their gluten-free travels allows me to expand my knowledge about destinations around the world. I also get to live vicariously through the people I work with when they send me photos of their gluten-free food (and occasionally pictures of themselves) from across the globe. Helping just one person feel comfortable traveling gluten-free makes the process so much more rewarding.
My Gluten-Free Globetrotter itineraries have focused on the United States; Canada; the Caribbean including Aruba, the Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos; Europe including Amsterdam, Wales, Scotland, England, Italy, France, and Spain; Asia, including my own trip to Thailand; and even Africa… a place I am dreaming of visiting one day. If you have a destination in mind that isn’t yet listed above, let’s plan together! I also specialize in gluten-free travel itineraries for New York City, my hometown. Who better to plan your gluten-free vacation in New York than a local?!
My basic Gluten-Free Globetrotter itinerary includes a consultation to discuss your travel style and preferences; a personalized itinerary for the city of your choice including restaurants, markets, and more; and a follow-up conversation if you have any questions about your gluten-free travels. We can also customize packages based on your individual or family travel needs.
