It happens to the best of us… the dreaded “glutening,” when you accidentally ingest gluten and then suffer tremendously. I am sharing this story for a lot of reasons. First of all, I want to be honest with my readers and let you know that a seasoned celiac such as myself gets sick sometimes. Also, I wanted to address “victim shaming.” Some details might be a little gross. You’ve been warned.
2018 was another big year for Gluten-Free Globetrotter. I went to six countries, traveled via air and car around 100,000 miles (if not more), and moved back to New York City from California via a cross-country road trip. One of my favorite trips of the year was an unexpected work trip to Singapore. What a beautiful and interesting country. I also loved my cross-country road trip with my mom and South Dakota was a surprise fave from the drive. I also went to Mexico, France, and Germany and yes, I still need to write about all of those trips too!
With all of these adventures, I did a lot of gluten-free eating but also met a lot of wonderful people across the globe. Honestly, meeting fellow celiac travelers is always a highlight of travel for me. These women (always women, go figure!) never let their diagnosis and gluten-free life stop them from seeing the globe. These are my people! I get giddy when I have another gluten-free “blind date” with these celiac friends from near and far… and some of these meet ups were very far from home.
Thank you all for another amazing year of Gluten-Free Globetrotter. I have met so many wonderful people through this website and it is YOU all that keep me going.
It’s that time of year to start thinking about holiday gifts for your favorite Gluten-Free Globetrotter! These gifts will make the life of a celiac traveler a little easier this holiday season and beyond.
