Living and travelling gluten free in the UK, Australia & around the world!


I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in 2006 and like you, probably spend an inordinate amount of time trying to find safe places to eat –  this is a particular challenge when travelling.

I started my blog while living in London and taking advantage of Europe being so close.Caroline pic_web  I found other people’s blogs so helpful in planning my travels that I decided to return the favour and hope you find it useful :-).

I am now living back in Melbourne, but still have strong ties with the UK and we visit as often as we can.  I am continuing to maintain the popular 100% gluten free England series of listings.

The blog is a mixture of reviews from the UK, Australia and around the world.

I would also love to campaign restaurants to mark gluten free on the menu (as vegetarian meals always are) or to have a separate menu – it is sooooo exhausting having to ask and check things all the time!

I’m a qualified nutritionist and an ex-IT project manager.  I have in the past volunteered with both Coeliac Australia and Coeliac UK for many years, and see my blog as an extension of helping the Coeliac Community.

Yours in a gluten free life,
