How to Travel with Disabilities Such as Celiac Disease or Another Auto-Immune Condition
If you have a loved one, friend, or relative that you enjoy spending time with but they don't quite understand the challenges of traveling gluten-free, forward them this article. I decided to write this blog post to give insight to those who don't live with a chronic illness to better understand what life is like when you live with an auto-immune disease or another chronic disease, syndrome, or disability.
Did you know that having an auto-immune disease such as Celiac, Hashimoto’s or Rheumatoid Arthritis equates to having a disability? Many people usually picture a person in a wheelchair or someone who has lost their vision, however; disabilities don’t always show up on the outside!
Traveling with a disability can be difficult and needs more preparation and consideration when creating travel plans. There are many details to consider before you go on your trip to have a great travel experience. Here is what you want to think when traveling with disabilities.
Even though 3.1 million people across the United States alone follow a gluten-free diet, traveling with celiac disease or related conditions can often cause worry. After all, nobody wants to feel sick when traveling - as it is an easy way to turn a great trip into the worst week of your life stuck in a hotel bathroom that you can’t wait to escape from. Whether you are heading out on a family road trip or planning a luxury hotel visit for yourself and your family, one of the easiest ways to go on a gluten-free travel adventure is to head to a destination that will be gluten-free friendly!
With that in mind, here are some of the best travel destinations for Gluten-Free travelers and, of course, fun things to do in each destination! Remember that you can listen to the Travel Gluten Free podcast to find specific episodes on many of these top gluten-free destinations.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
