Wolf will be going to his Reserves duty in Georgia for almost two weeks this summer, and we were considering whether it might be fun for the kids and I to go along and make a bit of a vacation out of it. (More for us than for him, poor thing!)

We’ve done this type of thing before, when he did some duty time at the Columbus, Mississippi base, and had a great time. We thought of that one more because he has family in that area, but really it’s fun to get away anywhere!

The complication is that this will be the first time we’ve gone anywhere since I started eating a gluten free diet back at the end of February.

No casual stops to eat out along the way… Even “obviously gluten free” things (such as meat) can have gluten containing seasonings on them – and restaurant staff doesn’t always know.

It’s not simple to “just swing by the store and pick up anything we didn’t pack”, since many stores have a very limited (or even none at all).

Certainly I will plan and pack – and I AM a planner! – but being the first time, I know there will be lots of things I never even think of.

Do any of you who are further along this path have any tips for gluten free travelling?

Sorry, no photo credit to be had. I picked it out of a composed meme picture floating around on Facebook…

  1. Hello. I just stumbled upon your blog and noticed your topic. I’ve been gluten free for 3 weeks, and our family just went on vacation. We packed several gluten free snacks, which don’t taste that great to us, but we did enjoy the fruit, gf bread and gf peanut butter.

    When we did eat out, we chose Wendys and had bacon/cheddar potatoes, chili and frosties. I understand Wendys is the restaurant of choice for celiacs. Hope this helps.
