Best for gluten-free travellers: Gluten Free Travel Blog

Gluten Free Travel Blog

Intolerances or more severe food allergies put many people off visiting countries they’d otherwise love to see. This is a fact of life that celiac husband and wife blogging team Roger and Lyndsay want to change, and their Gluten Free Travel Blog goes a long way towards doing that. Having had a bad experience on their wedding day in Las Vegas, these two jet-setting foodies created the blog to make travel easier for those who follow a gluten-free diet - with some brilliant ideas including gluten-free restaurant cards in 54 different languages. These can be handed out to catering staff to make them aware of your dietary needs.
