I love to travel. My perspective of traveling has changed a bit, though, since my study abroad days when we’d subsist for the day on bread and cheese that we could carry with us. I had a stomachache every day on that trip, and now I know why. Needing to stay gluten free, even while traveling, is a challenge. Add to that a language barrier or a new country, and traveling gluten-free can be downright scary.
I didn’t know quite what to expect on my recent trip to Costa Rica. I’d been before but that was 10 years ago and only at the beginning of my gluten-free lifestyle. This time I was fairly confident that I would be able to live on fresh fruit and rice if necessary.
