Really lovely. I love the Spaniah Islands.  The quieter bits anyway. Both those islands are known as party islands for us Brits. I’m sure with all your research you’ll find a perfect honeymoon spot.

Those pictures look great!  Though if you picked Thailand or any Asian country, I imagine it should be easier to get by since a lot of their products are rice product based and I think that’s gluten free?

The spanish islands are beautiful & alhtough a fair plane trip for you, it’s VERY close for the Brits (as PP mentioned). Majorca in particular, it won’t be a cultural holiday as such, it will be overrun with english, whom tend to go there for famly holidays & bachelor parties. Not that it’s a bad thing, but just to be aware of.

Ironically enough i”m on the other side of the world to you, & going over to the Caribbean is going to be a dream come true.

I also have food allergies (not as severe as you) but i had to take them into consideration & i was comfortable selecting a cruise with a modern ‘luxurious’ feel. The line is renowned for their service & food. Upon lots of research, i though it would be good fit. I totally understand the fustration of food – although i love it, it can be so darn restricting!!

Now I’m really looking forward to the HM, to think that someone else is going to be taking care of my hassles for me …ahhh..bliss….!!

Just to throw it out there, the Italians are AMAZING when it comes to eating gluten-free (I’m coeliac).

Majorca and Mallorca are… nice. But I do think of them more as family holidays rather than honeymoon desinations (maybe I’m biased because I’m a Brit and they tend to be the cheap family holiday destinations for us).

It does look pretty, though. 

But seriously – check out Italy. I go to Spain quite a lot and the weather in September is nice, but not amazing for laying out on the beach (IMO, anyway). In Italy you could do so much more.

But then I don’t know how that would affect you if you’d still have to wear a mask in public… hmmm.

I’m sorry you’re going through such a hard time. I was ill for 5 years before being diagnosed (not as bad as you, though!) and I had a great response to eating gluten free and vegan for 2 whole months to get full of nutrients! 🙂 xx

@FutureMrsSarah:  I live in Australia, and the weather in September is anything but cold. If you go somewhere like the great barrier reef, cairns and surrounding islands the weather is beautiful. In winter itself up northern qld you will get temperatures of 23 degrees. So don’t say no to the idea of coming here if weather is your only concern Smile

@FutureMrsSarah:  It looks AMAZING. So sorry to hear about your troubles, I hope your health improves with the new treatment and detox!

I haven’t read what all the other lovely Bees have said, but just in case it hasn’t been mentioned: If you are packing your own food, please get a doctor’s note and notify immigration control immediately when you land in Spain. Make sure you vacuum seal your own goodies. Countries have some strange policies with regards to foreign food and they may just confiscate your food AND slap you with a massive fine (or worse), so read up on Spanish policies about what you can and cannot take into the country and get your stuff above board.

I know Australia is VERY particular about this and when I went to the States I had to leave my bag of blitong (cured meat, a popular snack) on the plane because meat isn’t allowed in.

@FutureMrsSarah:  oh bless you!!!!! *massive hugs*

I was totally thrown off you being a Brit when you said you’d never come across Mallorca or Majorca before!

And literally ‘lolled’ at the Isle of Fernando. Imagine bumping into Paddy on your romantic getaway! 🙂
