Travelling...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Would just like to share.

Just got back from a trip to Malaysia. On the plane had a gluten-free meal ordered - it was actually really nice. Got it and the hostess, smiled and went to put bread on my tray! Good thing everything was wrapped.

My boss has been fabulous. He actually told our client (we eat out a lot when we travel) that I was allergic to wheat and they all made a very big effort to order foods I can eat. Normally we have beer & discussion session after meetings... they ordered wine for me. I was really touched.

AND I didn't have stomach problems while I was out of town! This is a First!

Still have to think twice before ordering foods.

Went to church yesterday... anyone have problem with the Eucharist? Is it wheat? Think I got done in!

Have a great day.

Sally

Sally, that is great about your trip, I am happy for you to have such a considerate boss.

Yes, the eucharist is definitely wheat, don't have it next time! Either bring your own gluten-free bread, cracker or whatever, if they'll let you, or just have the wine, which is just as valid. That is what I do. I hope you don't get sick.

Thanks Ursula,

Yeah not feeling too good yesterday - itching and stomach cramping - and today (running to toilet).

Lesson learned...

At least I am now REALLY sure that gluten is the problem. :)
