Italians take celiac very seriously. In fact, children in Italy are tested very early on for the disease. Those with Celiac are given a stipend from the government each month and free time to do their gluten-free shopping, as well as receive free time to get necessary health services! Yes, I was born in the wrong country.
No matter how much research I plan to do between now and July 1st, the truth remains that I'm traveling to a different country all by myself for the very first time in my life. I booked my trip prior to my lifestyle change and I know that there is a reason for this. I look forward to sharing all that I will learn about stepping out into the world as the sensitive but strong person that I am.
So where will I be traveling exactly? Milan, Verona, Venice, Florence, Assisi, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, and Rome. I know- and the word, "excited" does not do this feeling justice.
Over the next few weeks I'll be sneaking some Italy-related posts into my blog. You know, about the important stuff- wine, food, food, wine, and maybe a few other things.
