My mom and I are two peas in a pod; we just have to look at each other to know what the other is thinking. Recently, we thought it was time for some mother-daughter bonding time and decided to go away for a weekend. After some googling we decided to go to Dublin, Ireland seems to be gluten free heaven. Enough reason to go!
During our vacation we visited three countries, namely Austria, Croatia and the Czech republic. The glutenfree experiences vary so much between these three countries that I will devote a post to each. The last one will contain information on the Czech republic, specifically Liberec and Prague.
Before the vacation I did some (glutenf)research. For Croatia I had already visited Dubrovnik and knew that as long as you’re not vegetarian there usually are plenty of options and that there is a lot of knowledge on the glutenfree diet. As I speak German fluently I also wasn’t too worried about visiting Austria. The Czech republic on the other hand… I couldn’t find a lot of positive news online. Mostly stories about how the glutenfree diet was not very well known yet and especially going out to dinner could be a real issue. Thus before leaving Croatia I re-stocked glutenfree supplies so that I had plenty of back-ups in case the food would indeed be difficult.
It has been two years since I found out I needed to eat glutenfree, and although I have found my way around in the area where I live, the biggest questions is always where to eat when I’m not familiar with a place.
I have been very lucky to have travelled to quite some places in the mean time, and my glutenfree sister has been to the USA numerous times and I thought it was time to share our knowledge.
