Happy Anniversary GFTB!!!

April 3, 2011

I just noticed that today is the one year anniversary of the Gluten Free Travel Blog! I think it is amazing that I get to mark this occasion abroad. Thank you to everyone that reads along. To many more years of passport use…

UPDATE: Apparently I’m unable to read a calendar, because I was a month off. It was March 3rd, not April 3rd that saw the first GFTB post. Happy 13 month anniversary anyways!

I hate the WordPress iPad and iPhone app!

This has to be the fourth or fifth time I have written a post, only to have WordPress make it disappear when I click “save.”

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr…

Rumblings of a trip…

May 24, 2010

I’ve thrown out a few possibilities for an upcoming trip to Erik. He’s mulling over destinations. Some ideas include the Caucuses, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I chose the last destination, so it’s up to him to pick this time. Discussions will go on as we weigh the good and the bad of each destination. This will exhaust the remaining 2010 time off. Two weeks spent somewhere. Suggestions are welcome. More updates to follow…

The trip has started!

So, as you can most likely gather from the headline, the trip is under way. Gluten free airport food is pretty much not a reality, so going to the airport (or anywhere for that matter) is important. My go to gluten free snack is the Lara Bar. They get the job done. The dense little bars will get you by in a pinch and won’t leave you hungry. I am definitely full enough to get by until my gluten free meal on Emirates arrives. With that said, I’m about to board my 15 hour and 45 minute flight. This is going to be truly painful…

The Gluten Free Travel Blog is now up and running!

March 3, 2010

After discovering recently that gluten and I are no longer friends, I have decided to start a blog in order to share (and trade) ideas to make my other passion more livable: Travel.  I plan on detailing foods from around the world, how to make them gluten free, and the occasional phrase in a foreign language to explain to waiters what you can/cannot eat.  Admittedly some places on earth are easier for the gluten intolerant than others, however I am determined to figure out how to make any country work.  I am hoping that this blog will be interactive and informative.  Come one, come all, join in to make traveling easy for the most interesting diet on the planet…
