By Megan Stetzel | June 23, 2017

Heeeeeey, it’s been awhile since I’ve been motivated to write some narrative about my travels, sorry about that!

Asthma can leave you huffing and puffing and hiking at a snail’s pace while your friends speed up to the mountaintop.

Celiac disease can leave you bloated and […]

By Megan Stetzel | October 4, 2016

One of the first things that people say to me when they find out I travel a lot is how do I eat? I have Celiac Disease, and a nut and egg allergy. I agree it’s a lot to keep track of. When you’re traveling as much as I do, you would think it is […]

Want to know what the biggest bonding topic on the backpacker trail is? Do you really? I don’t know if you can handle it…. Oh fine, it’s poop. Stop blushing. Everyone does it. Why can’t we talk about it! Well, after a few rum and cokes and a couple weeks on the road, talking about […]

By Megan Stetzel | May 13, 2016

Traveling while eating gluten free is not the easiest challenge in the world. It is a lot simpler than years past, however.

Gluten Free Guide to Italy

By Megan Stetzel | May 5, 2016

I recently went to Italy for the first time. Going to the land of pasta and pizza sounds like heaven on Earth right? Well, for a Celiac like me, it seems like the land of gluten and tummy troubles. I had heard rumors, though, that Italy wasn’t as difficult for gluten free diet followers as […]

Amelia Island, which is located in the northeasternmost tip of Florida, about 45 minutes from Jacksonville, is an island that makes a tummy happy. Before I go any further, it is imperative that I note that only tourists call it Amelia Island. Locals call it Fernandina Beach or Fernandina Beach town. With a tourist population of […]

Why Stay at a Hostel in the US?

By Steph | August 15, 2013

Did you know that the United States even had hostels? It seems a lot of people do not. Hostels are just not that popular with most Americans (probably due in part to a smear campaign by the Movie that Must Not be Named). I would be that most Americans backpackers who happily stay at hostels […]

Today’s guest post is by Nancy Harder of Nancy the Gnomette. Like me, Nancy is a twenty-something traveler and writer. Unlike me, Nancy and her family lead a vegan lifestyle.
