Bruges Christmas markets – tricky for a coeliac

Bruges / Brugge is a lovely medieval town, one hour from Brussels by train.   There are two smallish Christmas markets there – one primarily food & drink, and one primarily gifts and clothes.   The atmosphere is lovely, particularly at night, with the lights on the beautiful buildings and the ice skating in Grote Markt (market […]

Melbourne gluten free – plenty of options!

Melbourne gluten free – plenty of options!

I lived in Melbourne for most of my life before moving to the UK and was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease whilst still in Australia.  Awareness of gluten free in Australia is generally very high and you should not struggle to find places to eat. I have created a listing of restaurants which is available on […]

Amsterdam gluten free

Amsterdam gluten free

Amsterdam is a lovely European city to visit and I found it quite gluten free friendly, and was pleased to find a couple of restaurant gems! I think my favourite meal was at PIQNIQ, a little cafe in the Jordaan area.   I was glad to have had a heads up about it, as I don’t […]

Russia – gluten free not so easy…

Russia – gluten free not so easy…

In May 2013 we took a week long tour to Moscow and St Petersburg – mainly due to my husband’s desire to visit St Petersburg (a bucket list place for him!) The tour itself was great, but it did mean less choice for meals and made my gluten free experience harder than it would have […]

Barbados gluten free – The Colony Club

Barbados gluten free – The Colony Club

The Colony Club is a hotel/resort on the ‘sapphire’ west coast of Barbados.  I expect it is similar to many of the other resorts, where you really don’t need to leave the hotel if you are on a ‘do nothing’ holiday.   You can just swim (sea or pool), sunbake and eat and drink – swim […]

Reykjavik – amazing trip with easy gluten free eating

Reykjavik – amazing trip with easy gluten free eating

I’ve just returned from Easter in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Easter might not be the best time to visit (see tips at the end!), but we still had an action packed few days and found Reykjavik was relatively easy for gluten free – largely helped by the perfect English spoken by everyone we came across.  The Icelandic […]

I had the pleasure of visiting some friends in Stockholm at end of July and had some fantastic gluten free treats.  I did a lot of research on places to eat beforehand, but as they weren’t near where we ended up going, my friends had phoned ahead at a couple of places that came up […]

Las Vegas – surprising gluten free finds

Las Vegas – surprising gluten free finds

We spent Easter in Las Vegas (4 days was just the right amount of time to spend there) and I found plenty of gluten free options.  We stayed at Bellagio and thought it was a great central spot to stay and loved the fountain displays at the front of the hotel, which we could see […]

Chateau Villars – amazing gluten free in France

Chateau Villars – amazing gluten free in France

  We planned our holiday in France around being able to visit Chateau Villars after seeing it advertised in the Coeliac UK magazine and we weren’t disappointed! Apart from being in gluten free heaven, the hospitality shown by the two owners, Kevin and Bill was outstanding. Villars is in the Dordogne area of France.  The […]

Santorini – naturally gluten free

Santorini – naturally gluten free

We visited this lovely Greek Island in June and the sun was glorious – perfect blue skies and amazing blue sea surrounded by volcanic rock (the beaches have black sand!)   I have to admit I was worried about eating gluten free in Santorini as my usual pre-travel search came up with ZERO restaurants (this […]
