Traveling gluten free isn’t always simple, trying to explain what gluten is, the difficulties of cross contamination and hoping you find something to eat that isn’t a salad, are common occurrences. But not at Meeru. Meeru was the island we stayed at in the Maldives. We were there on the AIP (All Inclusive Plus) package meaning we had unlimited food and drink across the entire island. We had sit down…

MY MYKONOS

“Okay this is it, I have found my new favourite spot”. I think I say the same thing every time we travel somewhere new. The beauty of travel is that each place is unique and special in its own way, meaning it is impossible to compare one place against another.

A COELIAC IN LISBON

Lisbon is a city of trams, colourful buildings, hilly streets and lots and lots of food. When someone says Portugal, most people instantly think of the traditional custard tart. Now as a coeliac, this was definitely not on my agenda. I had accepted a custard tart simply wouldn’t be possible.

WINDERMERE WEEKEND

Last weekend it was my birthday (I know, hold the applause). I turned 22, which is kind of a boring one if you ask me. Everyone knows 21 is the big blow out, and 22 just feels like, meh. That said, I had a fantastic time celebrating, mainly thanks to my wonderful friends & family. My birthday wasn’t until the Sunday but Dave and I took the Friday off to…

BARCELONA GLUTEN FREE FINDS | What We Ate

We recently returned from a trip to Barcelona and overall the food didn’t disappoint. I thought I would share the places we ate and give you my honest opinion on each… where I recommend (or don’t), especially if you are coeliac / gluten free. Le Coq & The Burg  This was a casual little lunch spot that did fantastic gluten free burgers (with GF bun!) and fries. I had the…
