Gluten-Free Philadelphia with Michael from Gluten-Free Philly
I'm excited to feature Michael Savett, from Gluten Free Philly, for this episode of Travel Gluten Free! I've been hearing about Gluten Free Philly any time I mention I'm traveling to Philadelphia to another friend or acquaintance who is gluten-free.
My guest in Episode #65 is the father of an 18-year-old son with Celiac Disease who was diagnosed at age 3. He is an attorney practicing law in New Jersey and a member of the Business Advisory Council of Beyond Celiac.
He began publishing Gluten Free Philly in March 2009, with the mission of creating and maintaining a comprehensive reference for gluten-free-friendly restaurants, bakeries, stores, and events in the Delaware Valley.

Pacific Coast Highway: The Ultimate Roadtrip
Four years ago, I discovered the Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset magazine. By the way, if you've never read an issue of Sunset - beware - this publication is addicting! More specifically, Sunset magazine embroils the senses with the unique, fantastic getaways and the most inspiring and delicious interior decorating a magazine publication has to offer.
In the beginning, my basic knowledge of Pacific Coast Highway, or PCH as it's commonly known, was how the highway mingled with the west coast of the United States from the northern California coast to Southern California. I had been searching for a fantastic road trip adventure, and, to my traveler's delight, Pacific Coast Highway was the journey I was looking for!
After piling through information on Pinterest about PCH, my heart was pounding to go and explore the grains of sand, exquisite views, and glorious mountains, which caress the Pacific Coast Highway shoreline.

In the 6 hours I drove in one day,
I hear two sides to driving in the desert. First, there's the crowd who says, "There's nothing for miles", and I also hear people say, "It's a beautiful landscape."
It's picturesque on the surface, but below the surface you'll find a vast, amazing and brilliant world to explore.
Deserts are filled with millions of organisms of greens and tans, just staring down at you from their dry, hightop perches above the desert landscape. It's like they are all little versions of Yertle the Turtle from the Dr. Seuss storybook, looking down upon the cars as if to say,"I rule all that I see!".
Moving traffic is the entertainment of the hills and plants surrounding the highway on I-15 in southern Arizona, waiting for the observers in their vehicles to notice the patches of grasses, sagebrush and Joshua trees standing on the landscape. Each patch of greenery is a thriving community of microorganisms, small reptiles and plants. Millions upon millions of these little "islands of the desert" surround the road - contrasting the natural world to the strip of modern world, winding its way through the vast expanse of the desert.
Hiking through the desert is a fun, exciting and exhilarating outdoor experience you will want to have at least once in your life. Sage-scented air swirls around rock formations, and if you know where to look, certain spots have rock art from indigenous tribes dating back hundreds to thousands of years. Art from pre-historic tribes who marked their territory, where they buried their dead, or drawing pictures of the day-to-day activities such as hunting.
The desert offers much to those who stop to look. Take your time, close your eyes, and experience what this fragile location has to offer. Then open your eyes and see the beauty which falls across the landscape.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
