April 2018 Gluten-Free Travel News and Updates

March was a unexpectedly busy travel month. I kicked off March with a last minute trip to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. My husband and I literally booked the trip on Thursday and took off on Tuesday. Have you ever planned a trip in four days or less?

After a VERY relaxing short week on the beach in Mexico, I was home for a week before jetting off to New York City. I thought I might be going to NYC, but I booked my ticket while in Mexico. This was a first for me. Usually I wait until I at least land in my home state before booking my next trip.

In typical New York style, the weather was beautiful the first day I was there and three days later there was a blizzard. Welcome to Spring in NYC!

I ended the month with a beautiful hike in Livermore, CA. While I’ve been to Livermore when volunteering with Camp Celiac, it’s always been in the summer when the hills are brown and there is a daily risk of forest fires. This hike was so beautiful. The hills were lusher than I had ever seen them before!

April is a big month for me too. I have a milestone birthday on April 9th. (Any guesses?!) And then I am jetting off to Wisconsin to see my sister and my favorite humans in the world, my twin nieces and nephew. I haven’t seen them since August and that is far too long to go without seeing my faves. I already have two trips planned in May so I am thinking I should just take it easy at the end of April and enjoy spring in California.
