Celiac Awareness Month and Travel:

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Freshly back from our overseas travel adventures we have gained a new perspective on challenges faced by those on gluten free diets. The fact that October was also declared Celiac Awareness Month in the USA and Canada, prompted me to write some thoughts down that could save you a lot of hassle.

Tennessee CountryFirstly, yes, it is great to be back home. We had an exciting time in the United States visiting family and friends (some we hadn’t seen in 25 years !! ). Most of the time was spent in Tennessee near the small town of Tracy City, up on the Cumberland Plateau. That’s roughly midway and close to the southern border of this beautiful state.

As exciting as travel is, it also presents significant challenges, especially for those who are on restricted diets. Most readers of this blog are challenged by the logistics involved in adhering to restrictive diets of one form or another, so it is likely that you .can relate to how these are exacerbated while en-route to another country. Our recent travels have brought to light some valuable points that could make a big difference for you the next time you prepare for that gluten free adventure.
