Let's use this thread to introduce ourselves. Tell us a little about you: where are you from, do you have food allergies or are you a relative of someone with allergies, what are your allergies, where have you been, what is your favorite travel destination, what is your dream travels destination?
Happy connecting 😀
I am from Toronto, but have been living in Berlin for the last four years. I have multiple allergies that include peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, soy, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, banana, kiwi, strawberries, lobster, and I have OAS (oral allergy syndrome - so I can eat some fruits and veggies cooked but not raw).
I have been to a lot of countries, 31 to be exact, I have an app that tracks where I've been. When I was younger we did a lot of travel to the Caribbean and now that I live in Europe it is super easy to visit another country for the weekend. My all time favourite place I have been to is Iceland. I really want to visit Scandinavia and Greece.
The biggest concern I have when traveling with food allergies is why type of oil they cook with, otherwise I never worry to much about food since I can get to a grocery store and get whole foods. I generally eat pretty healthy when I travel because of that.
I am from the UK and live about an hour outside London. I am a food allergy mum and have two children (4&2) who are allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, sesame, garlic and chilli between them. I have travelled loads pre-kids and been to 51 countries. Travelling with 2 food allergy kids has made it a bit more tricky but so far we have managed France, Spain, Dubai and USA. There are so many places I would still love to go - Greek islands, Nepal, Brazil, Egypt.
I am from London but now live in Varna Bulgaria. I have anaphylaxis to tree nuts and peanuts, and food intolerances to gluten and possibly dairy.
I have travelled to around 10 different countries for holidays and have also backpacked around Europe and South India when I was a student.
I am currently planning my next adventure to the Caribbean and NYC. So if anyone has any suggestions, would love to hear your experiences! 🙂
