This 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:
- Two trips to Asia: Singapore and Thailand
- Two cross-country road trips: NYC to CA in 2016 and CA to NYC in 2018
- Two trips to Mexico
- Four trips to Europe including Czech Republic, France, Germany, Wales, and Scotland
- An amazing trip to Costa Rica
- And countless trips throughout the United States
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!
